Hi, in my last blog I mentioned that my workshop doubles as our guesthouse and as such it is time to make some changes so these two parts can function together. I have decided to do a make over in our guesthouse for both beauty and function. During this time I will not be able to take any orders since all of my material will be in storage as well as not having any workspace. I hope this will not take too much time and I will let you all know when I am open for business again. ATT! I...

I felt that her description resonated with my pebble art so I decided to educate myself on the subject. Kathryn Vercillo wrote about how handcraft is a part of...

Life by the sea is a like a magical dance with nature, sometimes the dance is like a crazy foxtrot, but mostly it is like a wonderful gliding waltz. The weather can be quite shifty but I am never afraid, it is more of an admiration and respect for this power that controls our lives more than we care to admit. I am never bored by this dance, it keeps me focused and connected with nature, the envoronment and my self, this holy trinity that drives me forward as well as giving me balance. The mornings are my favorite time...
