Getting back to it

I have been seriously neglecting my art and my blog, so I’m getting back into it!  I’m going to start doing a drawing a day challenge.  I will be doing this for the next 2 months and sharing them on this blog.  The bad the good and the indecipherable.

Any tips for getting back into the creative groove?

A Mother’s Day Present that Means More —

This Mother’s Day – you can support crafters and a great cause by buying a hand made gift from the Womens Craft Cooperative.  I love giving gifts from the WCC.  The pieces are always impeccably made and always appreciated.

Mother's Day Necklace

Each year, the WCC creates a special Mother’s Day product, and this year they have outdone themselves once again – the necklace that they have created this year is spectacular.  The beads are simply gorgeous and the craftsmanship is fabulous.  The necklace is truly beautiful and super versatile.

Rosies Place Necklace - option 1

For a tribute donation of $65, customers can send a limited edition Mother’s Day necklace to their mother or special someone. This year’s versatile necklace features four unique looks in one; it has three strands that can be worn together as a dramatic 38” long necklace or separately, from 18-20” long. It is comprised of a luminous collection of freshwater cultured pearls in antique copper and green potato pearls strung with Swarovski pacific opal, smoky topaz bi-cone and crystal and glazed aurora borealis Czech glass beads.

About the organization:

One of our most successful programs at Rosie’s Place is our social enterprise, the Women’s Craft Cooperative (WCC). Through introducing women to craft skills and the basics of merchandising, the cooperative aims to foster self-esteem and creativity, along with employable skills. Our products are of the highest quality and not only make special gifts, but are a meaningful way to directly benefit the poor and homeless women at Rosie’s Place.

Cat Scan!

I stumbled upon this awesome blog of cat scans- scanned cats that is. They make really interesting images, but it must have been very difficult to get these shots at all. Cats are hard to corner. Head over to The Cat Scan to check it out.

Journals on Etsy

Etsy Friday has pretty much fizzled out, but I have been creating Treasuries on Etsy, and I thought I would share them here.  I love school supplies and empty books- ready for musings or drawings or numbers.  A new journal is just the ticket!  See the treasury here on Etsy.
