Treasures, Treasuries, and Thoughts

I swore I would never do a blog! So much for swearing. I didn't think that I would have much to say or share. I was wrong! I have been so blessed with a wonderful family, loyal friends, sharing colleagues, and the support from so many that I will never run out of topics to write about.

I have opened an on-line store at a place called Etsy (rhymes with Betsy). The items on the left are available for purchase there. These will change from week to week to show you my latest creations. The link to the store is in the upper left corner of this page.

I also have items for sale listed on Art Fire. The link to my Art Fire Studio is

I hope you will visit this blog, my Flickr page ( and my Etsy and/or Art Fire stores often. (

So come along on my Trail of Treasures! It will be a Spirit Journey for me and I invite you to join me on the trip.

Creighton University Intertribal Pow Wow

Saturday, April 5 2008 was our fourth year to vend at this event. Patrick, my son, and I sat up our booth and began selling before we even had our products displayed! There was a steady stream of old friends and new friends from the time the event started (12:00 noon) until it ended at 10:30 p.m. We were exhausted but it was a great day!

Our friend, Duane Wiskus, brought me a elk scapula to paint and/or bead. That is a project that I will have to think about to come up with an appropriate design!

The regalia worn by the dancers is breath taking! The number of hours, days, months spent on tanning leather, beading, feathering, and sewing is unbelievable. Many of these items are handed down from generation to generation and are awe inspiring.
