New Shop!

I have been very busy setting up my own web shop! I really love the supadupa host and think they offer a great formula for a clean crisp shop layout. I have been wanting my own stand alone shop for awhile and finally this is it!
Since I have reduced the amount of fees by having my own shop I have marked the prices down on my items to bring that savings to my customers. On top of that I am also having a week long sale for my GRAND OPENING! Please stop by and have a look and if something catches your eye enjoy a 15% discount with the coupon code SUPASALE

Fun Stuff

I am back in the studio and having so much fun. Wow, do I love to play with my dyes. I found this site that I just love called ColourLovers and I am just starting to play around with it. I made this palette today from one of my pieces

Color by COLOURlovers


And color returns...

My studio is finally set up and I have been a busy bee this last week. Lots of pretty colors flowing and more to come. I am also working hard at updating my etsy shop and beginning work on a store front to be connected to my website. It's a fresh year and I am ready to make things happen! Thank you everyone for your well wishes. I appreciate each and every one of you!

I'm Back!!

I'm sure many of you thought I was gone for good. It's been way too long for sure. We are now comfortable settled into our new home and all the guests have come and gone. The holidays are over and the house is finally settling. I am spending this week setting up my studio and trying to get ready to create again. It's been so long since I have done anything creative I feel lost.
I went to Strasbourg by train last month and had the eye doctor test my eyes to check the progress of the bubble. She was happy to report that the bubble has receded to almost nothing and believes that will be the end of it. I have an appointment next month to check and make sure it is not coming back. I have hope though. The stain that I saw before has diminished to almost nothing. I have to try very hard to see it now and it is more like a memory of what was there than an actually spot, if that makes sense. 2011 was a very scary year for me and I look forward to turning the page to a fresh new year with good eyes to see and create with. I can't imagine a life without being able to see, I think it is an artists greatest nightmare, that or losing their hands.
My new home is very different from the last. Though I thought that Oberhausbergen was quaint and homely it was also small and quiet. Our apartment was always cold even in the hotest days of summer. Here we are right in the middle of the city, there is something going on at all times. We sit way up above everyone being in a tower that is surrounded by much lower buildings (20 stories as opposed to 2-3) I have a bird's eye view of everything around me. I walk out and I am only a short walk from parks, stores, the canal, the train station. Just two blocks away is the pedestrian only shopping streets with many a boutique, bakery and restaurant all with cobbled streets and christmas lights everywhere. I love the soft quiet of the country but there is a part of me that revels in the hustle and bustle of the city. So here I am in my new life, ready to start creating again and excited to see what comes next!
