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.

I Am A Fairy!

My Fairy name is Tangle Rainbowwand

Tangle Rainbowwand is said to be a fortune bringer.
She lives at the bottom of tangled gardens and in hedgerows.
She is only seen when the seer holds a four-leafed clover.
She wears tangled dresses of multicoloured petals.
She has multicoloured wings like a butterfly.

Joan L, one of my Bbest Team Mates on Etsy suggested that I go to a fairy website and I would learn my “fairy name”. She then offered to do a personalized water color ACEO of me as my namesake fairy. I immediately took her up on her generous offer.

I have long been an admirer of Joan’s work. While she does like fairies, she also does wonderful paintings of birds and has a “Neighborhood Girl” series that I really enjoy.

Joan lives in Philadelphia, PA and has a store on Etsy. Joan says, “I have always been an artist ever since I can remember but not able to do it full time until recently. It is my one passion in life. I hope you enjoy what you see and remember it is made with a lot of love and care. You can view her work at

And here I am……Tangle Rainbowwand!

Now in addition to my Cherokee name, saguu gago widuyugodv, I have a Fairy name as well!

Wado, Joan for my portrait!

Your fairy looks like a patchwork of life/color, both in dress and her wings, she blends well with her colorful surroundings...I think she suits you perfectly!
