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.

We Shall Remain

Have you heard about the upcoming PBS series on Native Americans? It is series to be aired during April. This is what the PBS promo has to say about it:

"At the heart of the project is a five-part television series that shows how Native peoples valiantly resisted expulsion from their lands and fought the extinction of their culture -- from the Wampanoags of New England in the 1600s who used their alliance with the English to weaken rival tribes, to the bold new leaders of the 1970s who harnessed the momentum of the civil rights movement to forge a pan-Indian identity. We Shall Remain represents an unprecedented collaboration between Native and non-Native filmmakers and involves Native advisors and scholars at all levels of the project."

If you have interest in learning more about the project or signing up for e-mail reminders of airing dates, you can go to this web site:

You can also order a pre-publication copy of the DVD if you are unable to watch the series or prefer to watch it on your own schedule.
I am excited and can hardly wait for the first episode.

hi joni- hope you are well!
i received a 'marie antoinette' award for strong women a bit ago, and feel that you also deserve a 'stong woman' award, so i've finally published it in my blog and wanted you to know about it.
