I am a new but enthusiastic photog. Carrying my simple point and shoot wherever I go, I have become my biggest beef with camera folk; the impromptu, yes spontaneous, uncensored picture keeper. Kept until a use, always at my discretion, arises. A more useful and less stressful purpose is to display my art, both painted and bead and herein lies the motivation to build the simple light box you see above ..ahh..Ohhhh. Yes, it is quite functional yaall and no blood was shed in its construction.

GODESS..Madonnart Studio,is it's name. I know that but seeing the name as I come down the stairs would make the work more real and truly art and serious focus will ensue. My goal this week is to hang my studio's name, play at a new inspiration board and finish the mural in the bedroom. Gasp!!! is that a...a...plan Madonnart?

Our first annual Christmas party was planned with our usual forethought. We chose a new Italian steak house, festively gleaming in Edmontons -38 sunshine. Lots of lights, glass, untasted fabulous food...CLOSED...???? Reassigning destination via cell to guests, we reassembled at Brewsters and began the celebration.....love these people.

Travelling from Kelowna to Edmonton can be scary in the midst of a mountain blizzard. Temps right now are in the high -30's, with blowing snow and black ice. The love of my life and our furry empty nester will be hitting the highway 2 am Friday morning. No rest for me until they arrive.

The first bracelet was gifted to laurie. Tribal silver with hand blowen amethyst glass. I have a terrible time not giving away all my jewelry. It gives me such a joyful rush to see it embellishing already beautiful loved people, far more fun then the sound of cha...king.

The call went out....panic call I might add. Emergency jewelry was needed within 12 hrs....6 of them before midnight. Big Boss man of number 1 jewelry slave needed 30 gifts for office girls and they wanted beaded things. We began following a carb up session and did not eat or drink until done. We call it our clip on accessory line for pimping up cell phones and bags of all kinds. What do you think?
