For Susan

For the past several years, I have created a fiber art piece for one of the girls in my family. In 2009, my sister, Susan, was the recipient. This is her piece.

The Trinity School Artist Market in Atlanta was last week and I sold three out of my four pieces. I was thrilled! The artwork there was amazing and I was very honored to be asked to participate. So, this week I am definitely looking on the sunny side.

I made this piece for Monica, my 33 year old niece, who was diagnosed with breast cancer last October. She has just completed her 4th out of 6 chemo treatments. It is kind of hard to see the words on the piece, but two of the flowers have the names of her children on them. (Jett is 7 years old and Mattie Louise is 4)
If you look closely, you can see the pink breast cancer ribbon weaving through the piece.
Faith, Hope, Love, Joy, Strength, Believe, Trust, Courage, Inspire, Prayer are all included.

Spent the weekend at the beach and wanted to share some photos.

I love the texture in the sand.

I thought this was very interesting.

This was the first time I have ever seen a "sea cucumber". We were able to get him back in the water.
These beautiful shells were everywhere.

"BUBBLES" is another piece that I am going to take to the Trinity School Artist Market. (

"FRANNIE" is another of my junk art pieces. This mask is made with another piece of wood that I found on the beach. The earrings are from the 80's - lovely aren't they. I also added buttons, metal and little wooden pieces. These masks are fun to make because I use anything that I can find.
I'm headed to the beach this weekend and hope the weather will be warm enough for beachcombing. Hopefully, I will find some wonderful "treasures".
