And the Winner is . . . .

It could be you! Lorelei over at Lorelei’s Blog is hosting a giveaway for Cynthia Thornton of Green Girl Studio’s book “Enchanted Adornments: Creating Mixed-Media Jewelry with Metal, Clay, Wire, Resin & More” which will be released November 1st. Building up to that release, Lorelei will be hosting, not one, not two, but EIGHT (8) giveaways.

Check out her blog and enter to win the first and stay tuned for the following giveaways!

In local news, Kate Clawson of Ongoing Explorations of an Organic Artist has won the Snowflake Obsidian and Pearl earrings

for her email comment on my “Ups and Downs” blog post. Apparently she was not able to post to my blog. I know that sometimes I have to preview a blog before I am allowed to actually post my comments. Anyway, check out her lovely blog – she does amazing things with polymer clay!

Speaking of giveaways, I am a winner of the Art Bead Scene Studio Saturday giveaway from Cindy Gimbrone. Check out this gorgeous bronze pendant she is going to send me. Can't wait!

I was supposed to go in for jury duty today, but I just got a call saying I have been ‘release from that obligation’ – funny how I suddenly feel “sooo freeee!!!” Now I can make plans for my week. I can do some serious work in my untidy house and create something beautiful in my studio. Check out my before and after photos of one corner of my now lovely little kitchen.

Boggles the mind that I let the chaos get so bad.

Your blog post is a joy on many levels. I exist in two states. "Tidy" and "me"

The left picture describes what I am like when I am on my own. And the other when my partner is around. But it isn't just because she tidies more than me. It is because I am so much better at being organised when she is around. She gets me to be what I want to be. Did you ever read about being an HSP?

Those moulded pieces of metal are glorious too.

You seem to be brimming with enthusiasm. Am I right with that diagnosis?

Hello Richard,
Life is good at the moment. At least I don't have to do Jury Duty this week, though is is my civic privilege.

What a lovely kitchen you have! The blue-edged tile, the glass cabinet knobs, the art glass in the window...perfect!

And so my sister, why pray tell, are you not part of BlogHer?

Thanks for sharing. I always say my kithen is too small, so there isn't enough space for all my stuff. I guess it's really because I'd rather be doing other things besides cleaning!
