“Blog Carnival is about a group of EtsyMetal Team members sharing their experience on a common topic. This month’s topic: A Few of My Favorite Things – a photo blog.” On this rainy Monday morning, here are some of my recent photos from this gorgeous Spring we’ve enjoyed in the Pacific Northwest. […]
I’m very excited to say that this week I’ve been at the Artist Trust EDGE intensive program at Centrum (near Port Townsend). It is just beautiful out here! And WHEW! This program is Intense! …BUT, we are all having a great time. I’m making friends with many interesting and talented artists, and working hard on developing the […]
I’m on Whidbey Island this weekend with friends, getting ready to run my first 5K race tomorrow morning. The beach house we’re staying in is gorgeous (it has a turret!) but for me the best part is just being this close to the beach. A lot of the beaches here in the Northwest are rocky, […]

Two more total coups for the weekend: 1) Remember that line of enamels I did a while back, that I thought was ruined? (there were a ton of them, and they were all cracking and bits coming off.) The guest teacher took one look, and told me how to fix them. Fingers crossed, and still […]
