and re-construct WINTER! Now, I know many of you sweet blog friends must think we've lost it and are thinking, "Could it be that living with extreme heat does this to them???"
Here's a few of the Winterscapes we created...until Spring arrives.
Let me know what you think...
Since the holidays, I've been catching up with some dear friends who helped me with a late celebration of my birthday....
Debbie took me to a wonderful lunch at The Pita Jungle and gifted me with this amazing travel mug for my tea. Along with all that, she put together two test tubes, one filled with Ginger Peach (long gone and test tube is out in the studio waiting for another assignment!) and one with Vanilla Spice. These teas come from Maya Tea, a local merchant, which makes the tea even sweeter!
Dear friend Sandra and I spent an entire Monday together at her lovely home where she fixed a delicious Mexican lunch for me and gifted me with the lovely jewelry mannequin and some sparkly, pearly baubles for my art...
My sweet friend and teaching colleague, Nancy, treated me to lunch on Friday at Sauce and presented me with these lovelies...

I've got a couple of creations to share with you for some upcoming swaps...so, I can't divulge the swaps yet...
