my napaholic

I had to put in a picture of my little helper/ napaholic. I had woke him up taking some pictures of him. Happy New Year to all... it is 10:57 pm now.. almost here...


I finally gave up on the blue dye, I tried sanding , with no difference. I went ahead and painted it, it does look good. The red heart did fine and still looks good against the paint. afew other gourds and my helper Mooshie. I did not want to waste the paint it is a perlacryl.

dyed soy silk

I have been working on my soy silk- so wonderful to spin, although the angora is starting to call me. I only have a little silk left. I love my Jensen Wheel too.

Lovin life

I am having a hard time managing everything. I love it all painting ,drawing, gourds, knees, shells, also my spinning , crochet, knitting, weaving, collage, clay, it just goes on and on. I have been able to decide to sell my bobbin lace pillow I made with help from my friend. also decided to sell my felting stuff. 2 out of 100 is a start...

my CD art

I have been working on this idea for almost 2 years now. last year about this time I tried to work with SCORE to get a start up SBA backed loan. He directed me wrong and did not really help me. I needed it in place at the begining of the tourist season here to make a go of the venture without a big start-up expense. The company he had me go to over the internet had me jump through all kinds of hoops, such as bank account, LLC name, etc and then at the end of the summer said they would not even give me 1/2 of the amount I wanted and the man from SCORE said do not take it because it was not SBA backed loan like I requested and I could loose my house. I am taking my CD art to Etsy and to the visiter centers at the beach to see if I can sell them that way.

Here are some of the birdhouses. Kate, Jackie and I had done these. Then my son Fred and his freinds came over to the beach and Fred and Jamie painted some. They all had bids at the Habitat for Humanity Auction. we felt good just for having fun painting at the beach on a beautiful day.
