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.

Native Nation Treasury

To celebrate National Native American Month, Northenlodge, an Etsy seller, has curated this wonderful treasury. There are over 5,000 items for sale by Etsy artists that are tagged "Native American".

Not all of these are made by Registered Members of a United States recognized tribe. However, those who are and those who are not, are inspired by our culture and create many beautiful and diverse works of art.

My thanks to Northernlodge for including my Prairie Rose bracelet (middle item, first row) in her beautiful treasury. If you have a few minutes, check out Northernlodge's store at You will find many beautiful things.

While you are on Etsy, do a search of "Native American" to see the vast array of beautiful handmade items. Help us promote November as National Native American Month and November 27th as National Native American Day!
