All seems to be well in my family right now. Person after person has diverted a major catastrophe-to-be. 2009 has already had it's trials, but we've come through swimmingly (well, not me, I have a pretty boring life and that's how I like it). I have said for awhile now that 2009 is the year to shine!
I took pictures both days this weekend. Saturday at a park in a nearby town. Sunday at various parts of Portland. I have this fear of bridges... so Sunday, I walked across the Hawthorn Bridge in Portland! Walked across, taking many photos, then walked back, taking more. We also went to Union Station and took pictures there, and ended up at the Pittock Mansion that has the best view of Mt. Hood and the city. My husband took pictures there for an art show he has at work today.
It felt really good to face my fears on the bridge! Now I want to walk across all of the ones downtown! It was such a small act, but it made me feel about 10 feet tall!
Most of you know that I've been looking for a wholesale account for my pendants and have been looking into advertising venues for my shop as well. You'll notice the four ads on the right. I am sponsoring 4 ad blocks for project wonderful, and soon I will be putting my ad in as well, and it will go on other's sites. It is one step I'm taking. If you see anything of interest in that spot, please click away!
I wrote an article on Outdoor Photography for another blog, and I think it may post tomorrow. When I get word, I will certainly post a link for it on here! There may be several guest blog spots soon. I'm also considering having interviews on here of other artists.
This weekend, in addition to taking photos, I made a dozen new pendants. Some were repeats of ones I already have in my shop. Some are new and I should be able to list them within the week. I've also renewed several items for Valentine's day... like the rose pendant, the red journal, etc. And just in case you guys have not seen it, please check out this custom pendant... that I will make from your photo for a completely unique and personal gift!
Tomorrow it will be more personal stuff and less advertising, I promise... I'm just in that mode right now! I'd love to let people know what YOU are doing. Email me at I think I will make one day each week an artisan day.
I hope that all is well in your world. And that today shines!

Like this tree. As you may or may not know, I am a big fan of trees with crooked and bent trunks!

This one is a SURVIVOR!

I titled this one the dance... it looks like two trees coming together in a sensual dance.

Impressive words, Robyn, as all of your words have been -- and especially lately. Yes, here's to 2009, and the great things ahead!
