Shoptoberfest in Coon Valley, WI, USA 2017

Making all sorts of neat, new things for the Coon Valley Show!


The show is Sunday, October 15th, 2017. The address is in the event details.

And here's a little preview:

This one uses amethyst, opalite, freshwater pearls in two different shades and shapes, and silver plated spacers and other findings. Ear hooks are silver plated over surgical steel. Very good for sensitive ears!

I have other shows upcoming. They are viewable on my facebook page here:

There are also new items up in my Etsy shop! 

Honestly contemplating building a website! I've done it before, and it's a wicked amount of work, but also a lot of fun. :) Watch this blog for updates and information if I decide to do that! (It will be sometime in November if I decide to do it! *hints*)

I re-designed my Etsy shop banner, and have made it into a newer, sleeker logo:


I've been keeping wickedly busy! Hope to see you at one of my shows this fall!

Quick Watercolor of Fictional Butterflies- Day Three

My best friend of mine asked me to paint, (OMG), three butterflies in purple, pink and blue with a cheery background. I added the carnation because that is her favorite flower, in her favorite color- pink. :)


As usual, it's not perfect, (but what is?), and it was made super quickly, (under 30 minutes). The Teacup was about 15 minutes. Fast!

Oh yea, I outlined the butterflies in colored-coordinated pens, and drew on the antennae with black sharpie. So slightly mixed media, maybe. 

This is Day Three of the 30 in 30 challenge. You can read more about it by clicking here- and feel free to join in if you are inspired!

Quick Watercolor of a Fictional Teacup- Day Two

Here is my Day Two #30in30 painting a day challenge piece. I am starting a day late because of "Teh Sick." I'm hoping to catch up, (make two paintings), tomorrow.


It's not perfect, but it's a pretty good start to the 30 in 30 challenge. You can read more about the challenge by clicking here. :)
