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.

Two New Treasury Features

First, let me say Mvto and Wa-do (Thank you in Creek and Cherokee) to all of those who have included my items in your Treasuries during the summer. I truly appreciate it although I am woefully behind in adding them all to this blog! This morning, I determined that as well intentioned as I may be, back tracking to add them is just not going to happen soon. So, I am moving forward and will, in time, reflect back.

This morning I was honored to be included in the Treasury shown above which was curated by Mystic Silk. Mystic Silk is very special to me because when I was very new to selling on Etsy, Klaire, the owner of Mystic Silk, was the first person to put one of my items in a Treasury. I will never forget that!

Klaire included my Purple Haze bracelet in her current treasury. It is pictured in the center shot of the second row.

Klaire lives in Warren, Ohio. She describes her store as offering unique items of silk art. Her art is not only beautiful, it is usually functional as well. She makes gorgeous silk paintings, scarves and pillows. Her art work can not be duplicated not even by Klaire! So, each of her items is truly ONE of A KIND. To see the beauty of Klaire's work for yourself, visit her store at Mvto and Wa-do Klaire!

This wonderful treasury of turquoise was done by one of my Bbest friends on Etsy. Judy of Jnoriginals and I both belong to the Bbest street team and frequently have the opportunity to chat on line. She doesn't live too far away from me. Her store is in Urbandale, IA (a suburb of Des Moines).

She was kind enough to feature my "Turquoise On Ice" bracelet. It can be viewed on the third row, right in the photo above.

Judy is a thread artist…she sews, knits, and crochets. She makes wonderful felted wool bags, crocheted scarves, coffee cup jackets, coasters, napkin rings and more. You will want to visit Judy’s store at:

Again, Mvto and Wa-do to Klaire and Judy for featuring my items in their wonderful treasuries.
