Creative Life

Jeannine (thank you for the blog help) has tagged me with an interesting activity. 
1. Write the title of your memoir in six words.
2. Post it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who tagged you.
4. Tag five more blogs.

I always over think these things. My son J was there reading and came up with his version for me.
It does seem to fit with my life and where I am today.
My title
“I Can’t Believe I Created That”

I hope to see some interesting post from

Winner Number 8

Well J selected a winner from the comments and it is Tanya and she has a cute Etsy shop.  I will be sending your bag of goodies out this week.  I will email you for shipping details.

Thanks for all the comments and great ideas for storage.  Too bad IKEA is a little far from my location, but I will be putting SA to use with his power tools and lumber for some new storage solutions.

100 and a Give Away

This is my 100th  post.  It has been slow going and I have time that are just so busy that I am not able to write as much as I would like.  I do have many things to talk about just not so much time for putting them into coherent form.  I am such a visual person I feel that presenting images of my actual work (as well as many other creative people) is much more interesting than my writing, but this form makes both possible. 

I honor of this posting milestone I would like to offer some things to my readers.  I have this lovely bag-and a few surprises inside for a lucky winner. Many of my recent post have involved my never-ending studio redesign, so I would like to know some of your best organizing/storage ideas.  Please post a comment including your ideas and some way to contact you and I will draw a name on Sunday April 6 and announce it next Monday, April 7.


I am also planning a major new look for the blog coming soon, it is spring cleaning time you know.  Thanks for all the interest in my blog this last year. 

Eco Fashion Design

Originally uploaded by Oddy Knocky

Here is a great design company that I found (via Crust Station). They are eco friendly and very creative. They have great vintage flair with their clothing. It is just they way I try to run my business. Love the color on their web site

In my own textile business at this time in my life, I have started to focus more on home accessories and fabrics.  But I will always be drawn to fashion design and style.  I still make bags and small fashion accessories, and create the fashion for my own clothing to wear.  

A Thank You

I wanted to thank Timothy for adding my Etsy mini to his blog.  He is a talented metal-smith and jewelry designer.  You can find more of his work at Timothy Adams Etsy site here.  Thanks again.

Art Aceos


This lovely collection is from Jeannine.  She has a project over at her site, to help families of the armed forces.  She did a great collage class last week at the gallery.  Z was able to sit in on the class and really learned some new techniques and came away with some interesting pieces of art.   Head over and check out her art work and help out a good cause.
