Just got to use my new photo booth to shoot this gorgeous commission I just finished. Love the weight of this one, definitely making a statement wearing this beauty. Check out my flickr for more shots of it. Somehow I am going to make a ton of new work for the show in.... 4 weeks. Already have a few pieces ready that I am very excited about, will post images after show though:-)

After removing the bent over hedges this spring, we planted these:-) some are around 10 ft tall and all are beautiful...its so hard to leave this sometimes...

the garden is surviving the heat, corn coming in, tomatoes, carrots, beets, peppers, brussel sprouts?! lots of squash and weeds... and really killer mosquito's

Etsy Shop

2 years of nursing school ahead of me and I decide to open an Etsy Shop.

guess I'm in for quite the ride.

One studio mate that has pushed this new work along is my new 120lb Hay Budden. Resurfacing an anvil wasn't quite as daunting as I imagined, and hopefully I didn't mess anything up too terribly. Its got great ring and rebound, and a serious amount of space for me to work on.

new year/last year

Since my last post I have: applied to move overseas as a "traveling spouse" (obviously that didn't work out), bought, slightly renovated and moved into our unbelievably perfect new home on Greenmount, developed new biology, chemistry, and statistics skills, and set up a beautiful new studio. I am currently in the Nursing track at CCBC. What a surprise. I love Biology, Chemistry, and really enjoyed Statistics. I am a full time student and will be applying to programs in the next few months.

I am overwhelmed by my circumstances. The gift of learning, the gift of existing in a beautiful space, loving and amazing friends, an extraordinary husband. This past year has been a year of immense growth of which I am so thankful for.

Here are a few pics of my life and work that have been squeezed out along the way.

my lush backyard... more house pics to come. looking forward to some serious gardening.. beekeeping? and who know! p.s. we have Great new neighbors!
