Doing a little happy dance in @chaptersindigo. Found the newest issue of Somerset Home and I wrote one of the articles that is published inside! A little bit on the inspiration behind, and a step by step how-to make magnetic bud vases. Excited about this first for me. Check out my Instastories for a peek.
Inspired by a photo of her grandchild, Jane Wetzel, created this piece imaging that her granddaughter must be wonder struck by the beautiful things in this world. Hit your local Barnes & Noble or newsstand to read the tutorial inside the Summer Issue of Somerset Studio
📬 Kicking off A U G U S T with some #happymail to Ohio & Cally....baby!! 🤗 Wanna hear some worthless fun info? At 23, I was given a full ride by my employer to the sunny state of California! They gave me an opportunity I just couldn't pass up! Before I knew it, my apt was in boxes, I was on a flight (nervous as hell) and I'm confident that the amount of money that was paid to transport my '97 Chevy Cavalier was more than its worth. 💲🤣 Oh... annnnd, I should add, I master negotiated to have my high school bestie included in on my relo! 😛❤ Who does that? Meeeee! That's who! .
We adapted super quick! In fact, our first night there we met and hung out with the guys from LFO at a dive bar. 🤣 You know...the guys who sang the "summer girls" one hit wonder? We thought we were big stuff back then, ya'll. .
Some of the best years of my life but 3 years later, I moved back to my "old bay" state for a year just to move to Virginia for a few years, then North Carolina for a few years and now back H ❤ M E!! I was and AM and forever gypsy-hearted! 🧚♀️🤘
🌍OHIO? I know nothing about! Not a thing. 🙄 Never been. Am I missing anything? What is it known for? Maybe a road trip is in order? Anyone in? I'm a horrible co-pilot. Easily distracted. Occasional napper.😴 Obnoxious radio karaoke host that doesn't know half the words. 🤯---> Just putting it ALL out there if you were considering a road trip with me might be fun. 🤔😂
Hi, only two day till you can read this article I wrote for the first issue of In Her Studio by @stamington. I feel really honoured to be part of other wonderful artists showing their creative spaces in this new magazine.

Brand new August magazines have arrived from @stampington including Art Doll Quarterly, Somerset Home and the brand new title - In Her Studio! Ideal reading material for this gorgeous weather #afth#harrogate#stampington#magazines#goodreads
Finally... I have been waiting for this subscription to arrive:) I am always interested in how other artists make their space in their homes and carve out time to go there and work. I can get easily distracted and often have many projects going at once:( Wonder what these studios looked like before the day of the photo shoot ... a hot mess like mine with metal shavings everywhere?! #whenthemetaltalks#inherstudio#sacredspaces#porchstudio#metalsmithing#waxsealjewelry#stampington
I have been submitting my work to Stampington & Company for almost a decade and I feel fortunate each time my work has been accepted and shared in their publications. But also many submissions have not and that’s quite all right. In those situations my immediate reaction to myself is always very critical at first. I have to be conscious enough at that time to remind myself that it’s not about me, or about what I have created, that often time the work is not bad, it just doesn’t fit the theme, the publication, the particular magazine etc. I have to remind myself that I need to keep doing what I am doing, creating work that I enjoy and the rest is just part of the process. So I am happy to share the the newest issue of GreenCraft magazine is out and is soo good!!! Full of amazing work all made from recycled materials. I share a bouquet of painted palm fronds. It officially goes on newsstands August 1st. I hope you can check it out and find inspiration.
In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can flesh do to me?
Psalms 56:4 ESV
God always checks on us. Where we are at the moment. Who we trust. What we are busy about. He is a jealous God. He wants our full attention.
It feels good to know that someone all powerful is watching over. Always ready to catch us, to comfort us. Always walking with us. Always in us. Someone who meets us wherever we are.
P.s. the very beautiful art is @jodiohl from Somerset Studio magazine #somersetstudiomagazine#stampington
