Diving into the rio abajo rio.  Today's Gemini moon stirred me up.  My energy was mixed with high emotions, feistiness, and a deep need to release some things through dance and art.  And that is just what I did.  I got down and dirty on my hard wood floors, and then I got inspired to break out the camera and turn those emotions into tangible art.  This is my way of working things out.  Its how I heal from aggression, pain and sorrow, as well as how I express in more happy states.  So... these are the product of today.

The amazing fabric I found last week for my gypsy flags, but I honestly don't think I can cut this fabric up.  I nearly fainted when I found it at goodwill.  Not a stain or tear.  Its magic.  Truly.

I added a section for my creative photoshoots... Under Creative Fire, you will see photography.  xo.



Lately, my studio have been a wreck!  Fitting all of my work into one bedroom is a challenge.  And I begin to feel claustrophobic in my creative space when it gets this way.  So, I decided to take back over the second spare room in our house.  At least a corner of it.  I moved all of my fabrics and supplies for making my dreamcatchers and gypsy flags in there.  So now I have a textile space and a jewelry space.  It feels so good.  Bella helped me rearrange, of course...


This is our new view.  Since I work on the floor.  Bella likes to get up in the window seal while I work.  I can now open the window and hear the birds or the wind in the trees.  Its perfect.  And in the evenings, the sun sets on this side, so I get to see the light spilling through the cracks in the trees and leaves.  Its magic.


I also added a tiny sacred space in the room.  The word art was a gift from a dear friend, and its from Messy Canvas.  The words she chose for me were absolutely perfect.  I feel so blessed to have such friends in my life.
