In the Works

Dreams, plans, projects, and goals make life interesting
 and keep us moving happily forward.
I know they do for me, anyway.

As for projects, I've got a couple exciting ones I'm working on right now.
The first is an elaborate beaded necklace for a show.
  I'll share a photo later when I finish, but for now you'll have to use your imagination.
Picture nature magnified under glass cabochons, bedazzling Swarovski crystals,
luminous dichroic glass, gold plated beads, and carved stone.
Sparkle aplenty!

The second is a personal project, a book project.
As you may have guessed, I'm a book lover.
So, I've dreamed of putting some of my macros together in book form.
I decided this is the year to do it!

I'm currently printing out images and designing the layout of the double page spreads -
balancing color, detail, form, and subject matter.
I can tell you it's really fun and engrossing.

Next, comes answering questions like - 
where to have it printed, how many copies to print, and what size book do I want ????
Caroline made me aware of Artifact Uprising,
which looks like a great printing possibility.....

Yep, life is interesting with projects in hand and lots of dreams.
What projects do you have in the works?

Winter Rain

A few weeks ago, we had a winter rain.
This is not the norm for the frozen north,
but a welcome sight for someone who loves water drops, 
reflections, and worlds within worlds.
Yes, that would be me :)

Happy hunting for fascinating views!

I'm taking a break to spend some time with my family.

Wishing you happiness and wonderful creative times!
