Fear LESS. Love MORE.

Recently someone I follow on Twitter posed a question that essentially boiled down to: “How do you combat fear?”  It reminded me of a journal page I posted about the difference between being “fearless” and the act of “fearing less.” In my mind, the way to combat fear is love, for others and for yourself. […]


Loops, Springs, Chains. Oh, My!

Hello all! We are having another sunny weekend in Seattle. Two in a row, practically unheard of (common joke around here: What do you call two straight days of rain in Seattle? A weekend. ) So, today was another day out and about enjoying the sun. Will we be so lucky tomorrow? Last night, I did […]



Well, not really, but things have been pretty hectic the last few days. Sadly, my art cart (the mobile craft center!) and my metals have sat idle. I have not…lots of freelance work coming in (which is great, right? Right?) but that always means less time for the “me” things. Also, a friend went out […]

And another view of the necklace.

Recycle! Turn a Paper Bag into a Necklace

A few days ago I posted about making paper beads. Well, I have been at it again…trying a different type of paper, and documenting a bit of the process for you. This is in no way an actual tutorial, but it should give you a rough idea of the process. As I mentioned in my […]


And then this Happened…

While I was putting the finishing touches on my last post (which I had a ton of technical issues with–view here if you missed it)  this came in the mail. My order from Rio Grande finally arrived! Yippeee!  Sterling silver and gold-filled wire, some round, some half-round. Expect some jewelry posts soon!


Art Journal: Fear LESS

Just yesterday I stumbled upon a Web site for an idea that I find really fascinating. Its called “Dear World” and there is a short video explaining what they do here. I won’t go into too many details, you can check it out if you would like, but the gist of it is that they […]


Art Journal Page: I Cut up a Book (Gasp!)

Seriously. I love it when people use book pages in their art, but I have not been able to bring myself to do it…that is until today. I did it, but I feel so naughty. I’m (ahem) not a kid, but I am still afraid my mother will see what I did to this book […]

Finished beads

One Down, 499 to Go! (Paper Beads)

I have a “to-do/to-try” craft list that is about 500 items long. Seriously, it’s crazy. But today, I can cross one of those things off the list because I made paper beads, something that has been on the list for a long, long time. I stumbled upon a tutorial that made it seem so easy […]


Postcard Trio

I just finished the third (and final) postcard in a series. Between now and Monday, I am going to leave each one in a public place for someone to find.  Each postcard has a note on the back explaining that the card belongs to the finder now, to do with what they wish :) Who […]


Five Important Lessons from Project: Create

Do you think you can have too much creating in your life?  I suspect the answer to that is “no” but I do think, like all things, you can go a bit overboard, and this is sort of how I felt after the last day of Project: Create (a 30 day challenge to create something […]
