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.

Who Is Felipe Rose?

Who Is Felipe Rose? You probably know just might not recognize his name.
  • Felipe Rose is of Native American and Puerto Rican decent. His adoptive father, Eddie Three Eagles, is Lakota. As a result, Felipe has often used his long standing fame to help make a difference for the Lakota people living on reservations in South Dakota. He has also donated his time for many years for various programs and projects benefiting all Native people.His involvement includes helping with organizations such as the American Indian College Fund, Unity, United Nation Tribal Youth Council, and OneNation Walking Together.
  • A gigantic blizzard unexpectedly hit western South Dakota on November 5, 2008. People became stranded and without heat, supplies, food or the ability to leave to get help. Roads were blockedwith twenty foot snow drifts in many areas. Over two thousand power lines were knocked down. Roads remained impassible for days before snowplows could even begin to clear them.
  • Today, Felipe is trying to assist the Lakota Sioux Reservations in South Dakota with relief recovery efforts critically needed due to this recent blizzard crisis. This blizzard was the worst to hit western South Dakota in decades. The devastating storm left thousands of people withoutpower and, one month later, there are still people on the Reservations without electricity.
  • Well this is what Felipe Rose is doing. Now can you tell me who he is? Don't write your answer in the comments or you will give it away to the next person. Send your comment to Go there and then click "contact".
