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.

To promote the sale, several team mates have done some excellent treasuries and I am pleased to be included. The treasury above was done by kittyd. Kittyd is from Camden, North Carolina and she does wonderful jewelry and polymer clay pieces. Kittyd included my barrette (first item on the third row) in her treasury. You can see Kittyd's work at:

Talking dog (AKA Janine) is another of my Etsy Bbest friends. I thank her for her support and for including my Native American Fan Fare Earrings (Center of last row) in her wonderful treasury. Janine is a professional artist who has studied all over US, earned a B.A. in art. She has been a silk painter for over 20 years. Janine's items are made one at a time, by hand making each unique. You can oww and awe over Janine's work by clicking this link:

Zuda Gay did this promotional treasury. She was kind enough to include my Midnight Motiff necklace (First item, bottom row). Zuda is an extremely talented and successful polymer clay artist from central Illinois. I know you will want to visit Zuda's store. You will find her polymer floral pendants irrestible. I have three times! You can find Zuda here:
I am always so thrilled, surprised, and honored to be included in treasuries put together by my talented friends. Mvto and Wa-do, Kittyd, Janine, and Zuda! I hope you have great success during the Bbest Holiday Sale!

I swore I would never have a blog either! I really had no idea what they were at the time. I also had no idea how greatly they would help me sell my artwork! :0) I see your team is having a sale too! Our Vast team is having one...(mine is free shipping)

Wonderful work
