A lovely idea was offered up at the New Year by my Facebook friend and artist Melanie Park. She invited 5 people to accept a handmade gift from her, the only expectation, that they in turn invite 5 people to receive the same from them (and so on) and they had one year to attend to this business. Well my patient darlings…finally! I have made good on that promise! (Procrastinate much? Who? Me?) I am not a terribly crafty sort, Pinterest mercilessly pokes at that sensitivity daily, but I was drawn to attempt these birds nest necklaces as mistakes might even improve them! I hope my recipients enjoy these handcrafted baubles. And I finally opened the gift from Melanie today (I didn’t feel right enjoying it until I had made good on my end) and it’s a colorful and delightful painting. Thank you Melanie for the gift of art and inspiration! I hope this tradition continues far and wide!

Religion is the rules, regulations, ceremonies and rituals developed by man to create conformity and uniformity in the approach to God. Spirituality is God’s call in your soul. – Iyanla Vanzant
I keep hearing the voice of the Dad from A Christmas Story in my head, “I won it! It’s a major award!”. Well it isn’t a sultry leg lamp exuding the “soft glow of electric sex”, it’s a whole lot better…my photograph Barton Creek was bestowed the honor of Best in Color at the Fine Art of Photography show (on exhibit through May 5th) at the Plymouth Center for the Arts in downtown Plymouth. I was not able to make the opening reception and finally made my way to the show yesterday and just wow! The selected work is fantastic. So much talent. I am truly honored to be included in this exhibit and blown away that my photo was deemed praiseworthy.
