junkster extraordinaire, rebel jewelry artist,
chicken farmer and writer of marvelous "fiction"!

One of the packages awaiting my return
contained this awesome shadow box!
Isn't it beautiful?
This shadow box is adorning my mantle.
This beauty was a prize I was lucky
enough to win from the
One World One Heart giveaway!
Who is the artist, you ask?
Well, it is Connie, of course!
Isn't this adorable?
Connie also sent me this tag!
Look at the vintage jewels in the middle!
You know Connie, don't you?

Thank you so much, Connie!

Meet Alistair Iriekins...
my new art studio "mascot"...
No, I didn't name him...
he was "born" with the name!
He was created by Waxela
at Spirit Mama Art in Austin...
and I love him!
Anyone who truly knows me,
understands that Alistair
fits right in at my studio!
Waxela also sent me this magnificent magnet...
another creation of Spirit Mama Art!
Look at that face!
Isn't she marvelous?
Unfortunately, Spirit Mama Art
is leaving Austin...
The good news is that you can find Waxela's
unique art dolls and sock monkey cake toppers
