Finding my way home….


My, oh my…. It has been a long while since I’ve even taken a glance this way, so many wonderful things going on. Summer has been really great in every way. The weather has been perfect, the beach just lovely and I’ve had lots of studio time to really tap into the essence of my creative soul. Now it’s time to reconfigure my time for teaching, doing art shows and finding that calm slow space in which to create. Trying to hurry it doesn’t work even a little, so I’m learning to slow down and let it happen the way it should. What has really helped me was taking the True Center class offered by the super, real deal Kelly Clark. Her blog and business is called Umber Dove and I highly suggest you check her out, just the most amazing in every way. Her philosophy, free spirit and raw, amazing artistic ability  is ridiculous!!!! I learned so, so much. Thank you, Kelly!

As we await the arrival of fall, my favorite season,  I think it is a wonderful time to reflect on the bounty of miracles  that await us everyday, if we just look and listen… the sighing of the wind, the rustle of leaves, owls welcoming the night sky and the warming of our very own hearts By those we love. May we be ever grateful, kind and most of all loving.


Here are a few pictures of designs I’ve been working on.

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.
