In the Spirit of Giving….

This neat lady – another glass fuser – the Designing Diva, AKA Randi Sue – is GIVING AWAY some of her lovely jewelry – as prizes in her contest where you write a bit about giving back to the community and are entered in a drawing – let’s celebrate giving, and sharing, what makes the holidays mean more, much more than just commercialized clap-trap!  Even the Grinch knows, “Christmas means just a little bit more than something that comes from a store…”

Making Art to Make a Difference

I am so pleased – I decided to “make art to make a difference” – so when I do well at a sale, I donate some of the proceeds to a charity – give back a little. Ever since I took this approach, my jewelry sales have been going well – and I will be able to help some deserving folks, including kids, have a merrier Christmas – AND I get to keep honing my art, learning my craft, and honoring the Muse – JOY!

You’re Invited!

I will be doing a show this weekend at a very nice place, the historic Hawken House in Webster Groves.  You can come, shop, and walk through this lovely home, that will be decorated in a Victorian Christmas style…
