The tour last weekend was a success. I received some tremendous feedback (and sales) and I couldn't be happier. Despite my shy, introverted self, I actually enjoyed meeting and talking with so many new people. I also loved connecting and working with other artists with the soul purpose of promoting art. I'm so used to working on my own all the time, it was a real joy to feel part of a team.

Of course, I had to make a purchase. I bought this........

....a necessary addition to my growing ring collection. It was handcrafted by the talented Sue McNenly. It isn't very often that I discover a jeweler whose work is so consistent and amazing that I want to own their entire collection. Sue. I want it all!

We bought a house.
It's in the burbs.
We will have a lot more space.
Better schools.
Plenty of greenbelts and biking trails.
A gourmet, eat-in kitchen.
A real garden (with trees and flowers)
And I will have a new........ studio!!!!

I'm beyond excited.
I can't wait to decorate (and create).

I'm so excited for you to move in and decorate. There is something so satisfying to making a space your own and clearly (from seeing pix of your last place) you are very good at it. Have fun!

Charlene, that is awesome news!! Congratulations! So glad we got to meet and chat a bit before your departure from the city. I would have loved to have dropped by your photography exhibit last weekend...but alas it wasn't possible. Please keep us posted on all the details with your new home. I can't wait to see photos!!
