Wow so it finally happened! A Friday night that I was home turned into a very interesting evening. I got my fist Etsy order from my store. Not only was it a sale but it turned into a wholesale order! Yet another first for me. Someone bought 13 of my winged necklaces and chose the sayings in them. Here are a few pictures I took before they took flight and left studio. The roses were from my son, bought with his own money for Mother's Day! So this encourages me to keep going!

ART CRAWL Revisited

Thanks to Mary Jo, jewelry maker extraordinaire, we have some pictures from the Art Crawl to share. The weather was warm but really,really, windy! So here are pictures of Mary Jo Moeller, Angela Brooks, the potter. My son, Hunter Clark selling his pins, and last but not least his mom selling her jewelry.

Baby Squirrel

Spring is here and we had a small visitor today! My son, Hunter found a baby squirrel outside our front door! He had no fear of us humans and was so cute jumping on our feet to keep warm. He was so trusting he would let us pet him and even followed Hunter from the front yard to the back yard. The baby squirrel is going to be released into the local forest preserve so he can have a happy car free life! But how adorable is he???

The Antioch school system is hosting an Art Crawl. It will be held tomorrow May 2nd from 10-5pm. So far the weather looks fabulous and most of us will be outdoors. Our gallery is having artists through out the town of Antioch displaying, selling, and demonstrating their craft. There will be many activities going on through out the day. This is a family friendly event. Don't forget to visit the gallery that day. There will be more artists displaying as well as a kids art project to make and take home for a small materials fee. The gallery is located kitty corner from the Dairy Queen on 83.
I will be my selling my wares as usual, and I am choosing to sell jewelry this time. I am also going to be with my friend Mary Jo Moeller, and she too will be selling jewelry. This is her first time out and I know she is really excited to show off her beautiful jewelry.
We have 17 artists that will be out and about tomorrow doing all kinda of things, jewelry, painting, and I am not sure what else but plenty too look at and see. So lets hope for a great day and a big turn out to support the arts!


Wow! I went to my first mini reunion last weekend in Burlington, Wisconsin. A group of us on facebook got together and had dinner. I hadn't seen any of these people in 29 years! Yikes! Perhaps I am a social misfit? Just thought I would post a picture of my friends and I. I would be the lady in red!
