Feel the love…..


I am not a complainer of usual, but this has seemed to be an unusually long, wet, cold and fairly dreary winter. I will say I always try to make the best of every situation, and usually do although there have been a few mornings when I just wanted to lay in bed and ignore whatever I had to do….but, I’m not a quitter, no indeed, so I just put on my big girl panties and got on with it. I have had lots of good days in the studio and love my space there, especially when friends come to visit and hang out. Today was a gorgeous day and I was having trouble staying inside and working. Any excuse was a good one to step outdoors, listen to the birds and get a dose of vitamin D.  I did manage to cut out some very tiny silver pieces as I’m trying some new ideas. Pictures will follow in a few days.  Since this is spring break for me, I’ll do an open studio day this Wednesday, always so much fun. I think I’ll extend it until later in the day…. Happy hour time, 5 o’clock somewhere! As for now , I am so grateful for sunshine, birdsong and green things sprouting. Welcome spring, my friend, welcome!  Here are a few things I’ve finished up.


About turtlemoondesigns

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.
