New Beginings

2008 promises to be another very good year. One of my goals is to begin teaching art, sharing my interests and skills. My felted mermaid amulet bag workshop will be at Art & Soul in Portland in October. The bag is wet-felted and has a kumihimo finger woven cord with bead and charm embellishments. I feel so fortunate to have this opportunity.

I updated by book list. Right now I can't put down Molly Gloss's The Hearts of the Horses. She captures the Eastern Oregon landscape and the struggles of farmers and ranchers during WWI with characters you feel that you know.

I also added two blog links of artist friends from the Portland Artist Group- Jo Reimer and Alesia Zorn. Jo, a mixed media artist, plans to post her daily creations and Alesia shares her calligraphic art.

My travel adventures for the new year include two trips to Port Townsend, WA for Play- a journal retreat and ArtFest with Teesha & Tracy Moore; an artful journey to France with Mari Keis and Dayle Doroshow. My dreams include trips to New Mexico and Mexico.

Each dawn brings a new day full of possibility and new ventures.
