This past Saturday I decided to go to a couple of yard sales. I haven't been to a yard sale in years. I used to go almost every Saturday when the boys were small. It was fun to find them some toys and books. Well, I read about a needlework sale and figured I needed to check it out. I also read about a church sale and since the two were close together I decided I would go to both of them. Unfortunately, the weather didn't co-operate and the needlework sale didn't yield much. However, the church sale was inside and pretty darn good. I found a roll of vintage velvet ribbon and a needlebook. I love the victorian looking roses on the needle book. This is the first needle book I have ever found and I love it. There are still some needles in it. I think I have found a new thing to collect!

As a self-taught artist, I have developed a practice of experimenting with my own ideas, which seem boundless. Curiosity and research continually drive me daily. For over 20 years I have taken an explorative approach towards art making. My optimistic approach to life is represented in my art as I find beauty in even the most difficult circumstances. This beautiful, imperfect life I live is meant to be shared through my creativity, resourcefulness and curiosity. I hope to influence my audience with joy.
