New Art and Jewelry

Today has successfully come and gone without any warning. I started my day off grumpy, dont even know why. The past two days Ive been feeling irritable, I think its just my 'girl' stuff warning me she is about to slap me in the face again.

The other day I put these photos together after editing a few. I loved how they looked together, and are based on a theme. My mother, nature, nostalgia, old things, collections.

It is for sale in my photo etsy shop, and 1/2 of the proceeds will be donated to one of my local cancer organizations.

The next two images are ones from a while back, about a year ago or more. But I re-edited them and love them alot more now. I just got some new photo textures from Michelle Black, and amazing photographer. So I had some fun with them last night.

I took a whole series of these images during a very dark time in my life. Thankfully I am past that, but the art I made was plenty and tremendous.

This is a new little beauty in the shop. I am so in love with her. She is very old, full of nostalgia and whimsy. A lucky person is thee who becomes her keeper.

I am in need of many more participants for my quilt project!

Much Love, xoxo
