In a good cause



I was asked by Monica if I would join a group of fellow bloggers to create a 2 inch square, decorated with paper, fabric whatever I had on hand. Most people have made at least one, these are my three. Monica is going to join up all the squares and make a doll and hopefully a quilt that will be sent to Art Doll Quarterly and then auctioned on Ebay. The proceeds will go to help fight breast cancer. There's still plenty of time to contribute. If you'd like to help please visit Monica's 'girl gone thread wild' blog




These are a pair of earrings I made from some vintage rhinestone and crystal pieces I had, they are on my Etsy store along with the pair below which feature very tiny lockets that actually open and have room for two images in each locket.



I was also invited by Seth from 'the altered page" blog along with many fellow artists to answer seven questions about art. Each day Seth is featuring the answers to one of the questions. It's interesting to read the amazing range of answers.

Gotta go now my dremel's calling.

It's gotten to the point now Ro, where I don't want to sound like I' just repeating myself and sounding false. However, the squares are just gorgeous.

I'm considering joining. I just am short on time right now....so what else is new?
