You'll find everything from shirts to stickers to ball caps with this sassy cowgirl logo with 2 wording choices. AND... COMING SOON~~ Paper Cowgirl pendants in my Etsy shop. I will be listing those no later than Wednesday, so keep an eye out!
Yee Haw! See you soon, Cowgirls!

hello weekend!

Even those of us who don't have "real" jobs love weekends! After an insanely busy week I am ready for some downtime. My sis and I are thinking we might make a visit to the bird store.
I LOVE seeing all of the gorgeous birds! If Mojo (my Quaker parrot) was a bit less nippy we could take him. Alas, he is a tad naughty, so he must stay at home.
The weather is wonderful... hot, but I prefer hot to cold. I LOVE summer and yes, know it is still spring, but it sure feels like summer in Texas right now.
Hope you have a great weekend!

small joys...

Lately I have found so much peace and joy in small things... a hug from my 17 year old son, a found feather, time to create, a pastel sunset...
My days are sweetly sprinkled with small, but beautiful treasures. I am busy, but that is a good thing. I am glad and grateful to have a life that never, ever bores me! Instead I am busy~ with family, friends,creative projects, good books, my parrot... just living and appreciating all of life's gifts and lessons that come my way.
I wish the same for you!

next, please...

Whew! Art Fest was fun, exhausting and possibly my last outdoor show. The weather is just so crazy here and I can hardly believe that Sunday was actually chilly! It feels good to have this event behind me and now it is time to look forward to Paper Cowgirl in June. I need to prepare class kits and goodie bags and some special things for vendor night!
Yesterday was my birthday and it was a sweet day. My daughter took me out to lunch and we shopped at bit and laughed a lot. The evening was crowned with cake, family, friends and sweet gifts! It was enough to distract me from thinking about my age! ;)
Actually, I am using this birthday to inspire and propel me toward my dreams! In some ways I feel brand new and on the cusp of something very good!

Hope to see you at Watters Creek ART FEST this weekend! My sis and I, along with the amazing Jana, will have our booth filled with one-of-a-kind jewelry creations, altered art & assemblage pieces, seaglass treasues and my handcrafted flower hairclips, headbands and brooches! ♥♥♥
There will be lots of great activities including live music on The Green and a sidewalk chalk art contest (my daughter won this at the fall show). The weather is going to be great, so join us if you can!! ♥♥♥

I write a bit...


A year is an arc, a swath cut
deep into the earth. Mud and ice,
clover, violets, dust and dew
occur within. Days fall, a steady rain
of pebbles down the steep sides,

grit so fine it chafes the lungs,
rocks as jagged as hasty lies.
I have walked from June to June,
barefoot and sweetly shod.
No matter. The stones still bruise.

Sand finds its way into my bed.
Sun and storm pursue my share
of sky, duel above like lazy gods.
In these twelve months graves
have blossomed, flat as fungus,

spread their spore-like, rotten
flowers, an unavoidable plague.
Joys are harder to define,
closer held. I dare not speak
of them. Gems so precious stir

the greed of trifling deities.
A year is a song, the descant
honed and smooth. I hear it
in the ryed wind. It swings
like a blade, closer, closer.
