My Little Corner of the World

To be creative, you have to feel creative.  And for me, to feel creative, you need to be inspired by your surroundings.  I don't have a dedicated office in my home.  My space is one half of our living room that I have commandeered.  Now, our whole living room functions as a home office.  When I set up my portion of the office, and told my husband that I wanted to paint one wall in our living room, the room you see first when you enter through our front door, purple, he didn't exactly jump for joy.  But I wore him down and I love the results.  I am comfortable here.  It reflects who I am and it influences my designs.

Springtime is Not the time to put away your hand knits!

Welcome spring!  At least I have faith it will soon arrive.  I can see my tulips peeking through the ground now.

But I have news for you.  You don't have to put away your hand knit and crocheted items for the warmer seasons!  This year's new trends include fabulous fiber arts jewelry that is perfect for warm weather.

I've begun a new line of necklaces that are knit and crocheted from cool weather yarns like cotton, rayon, bamboo and silk.  These great necklaces feel great to wear.  They are practically weightless, and feel oh so good around your neck.  They will look perfect with a t-shirt and jeans or a skirt and tank.
Please let me know what you think of my newest creations and spread the word to your friends if you like them!
