The excitement builds… the anticipation of a great day.

I already know that it is going to be an incredible day… The caliber of arts and crafts in this show is amazing. I know of a few fellow vendors from The Creative Connection event are here… Hopefully i will have the chance to get photos of their booth spaces to share with you along with some of the other unique vendors. I hope you can attend Craftstravaganza!!! It’s here!!!


Two of my art & soul friends met me yesterday to help set up and connect over dinner, giggles and cackles. It was so much fun, we giggled like school girls! Thank you Linda and Hilary for joining me!

I hope your day brings joy in soulful friendships and family, some fun shopping (at Craftstravaganza πŸ˜‰ ) and happiness as you enjoy your Saturday.

Fancy Filigree Handwired Necklace


This might be one of my favorite photographs… I was trying to capture the sparkling colors of the crystals layered on top of the filigree.

I may not have been successful in capturing the colors, but I love the shadows of the swirled wire dancing on the dress form…


It is not advisable to photograph in direct sunlight, but I have to admit that I am smitten by the results.

The final photo does a better job of showcasing the necklace.


This necklace was a custom creation designed for a very special Mother’s Day gift for one of my clients.

I finally received my custom chain order… 300 glorious feet of textured black chain just in time for the St. Paul Craftstravaganza!


Hope you can join us! Have a fabulous sunny day!
