Hey folks thanks for all the well wishes on my surgery. I'm happy to say it was success and I'm now back home, elevated feet and all. Right now I'm feeling no pain (thanks to the magic of modern pain medication) and a bit silly. Silly enough to post these pics.

Im sot thrilled to have been invited and accepted into this talented group of Artist. It was'nt that long ago that I noticed that most of the artist work I admired and inspired me had these funny little initials in their listings. I soon realized it stood for outstanding craftsmanship and creativity. Just recently I congratulated Johanna Parker on her wonderful design for the new EHAG logo, now I get to proudly post it. This is wonderful news is just the thing I needed to boost my spirits before my surgery Thursday and the rehab to follow. My plate IS full but now it's got dressing! LOL. Thank you EHAG.

Hot does not begin to describe the weather down here now. But at least no storms so far.
One of the projects I've been working on is one some of you might remember, the "rattle" or "maraca" mobile. The show dates are getting closer and I needed to wrap it up. It had to be able to break down, for travel and design wise it had to not distract from the pieces it would display.
It's encrusted with carnival glass rhinestones for a little sparkle.
I think those requirements were met and I like the way it turned out. I suppose when not on the road I could use it as a cupcake or cookie stand for a party, Humm? yet another venue, my plate is already too full.
Finally a quick peek at another piece I've almost finished. The scarredy cat, the JOL its actually a miniature luminaria, it's quite fun when she's all lit up.
