Spring Cleaning……


I used to consider myself  a bit of a neat freak, but a few years back I decided that life was too much fun and I got over that. My home is tidy and fairly organized, but my workspace was getting really chaotic and I was finding it hard to focus. My inside beading area was really to blame because it is sooo time consuming to clean up all that little stuff and I’d rather be creating. The garage metal working area wasn’t much better. Well, enough was enough and I cleaned it all up while enjoying a glass of wine to help ease the stress. By the end of that purging session, I closed my eyes and just chucked the bead board and leftover tidbits…. straight into the trash can.  I think the wine helped with that. Wow, that felt great! I have vowed to never let it get that bad again…. we’ll see, but I have renewed my focus and feel like I really accomplished something. I look forward to sitting down and knowing where stuff is and having room to create! Spring cleaning can sometimes be a good thing.

Sky watcher, dreamer, seeker, stone hoarder.... Finding a love and growing passion for metalsmithing happened as a later in life discovery. I taught preschool for 23 years, but started doing metal work as a hobby about 13 years ago. All I can say is that I get lost and found in it. Three years ago I "retired" from teaching, I'm way too young for that! Now I follow my muse, and feel more filled up in my heart and soul than I could have ever imagined, but I do miss those sweet little faces too!! What a truly amazing thing this has become, my life! Please feel free to contact me with questions or for custom work.
