Back to the World

It's been awhile since I took the time to write anything here, but that doesn't mean I’ve been sitting around with a bon-bon box wistfully glued to old B&W movies dreaming of dancing backwards with Fred Astaire! (Or even Ginger Rogers!)

It's been a busy holiday season!  I did my first art shows!  What an educational experience that was!  (Those of you who know me would think I had already had that education!)

Then, Dr. G, The Poodle, and myself took a road trip to Arizona for a little family & friend time.  We home-based near downtown Phoenix in the gorgeous home of Keiko’s favorite non-poodle, Slider.  We revisited a favorite hike that took way more time and energy than we remembered.  And we hung out with some dear friends around a backyard fire with wood-fired pizza and cocktails—the perfect Christmas! 

Since we’ve been back the Meltdown has been cookin:  a new show display designed, five new necklaces, several cuff and bangle bracelets, and some private work in the hopper at the moment.  I'm off in a moment to work on two more necklaces and have a local art show this weekend, weather permitting.

I just wanted to drop y’all a note to let you know that you are never far from my mind, even if my mind is boiling over with other stuff.
