Birthday Sushi

Just spent lunchtime with my friend, Harmony at a favorite Japanese restaurant. It was both a relaxing and inspiring time. She is so sweet, is a glass-half-full gal with a genuine love for people. And she loves food. In fact, she had me try two new foods today. Good thing it was with her, because I would not have known how to eat Edamame! (tee, hee, hee)

Thank you, Harmony for a delightful time.

Check out her food blog, Beyond Toast. (I'm making her brown rice pudding tonight!)

Sweet Spring Accessory

Check out this fun flower pin made from fabric scraps! I made it at a friends workshop and I'm officially in love with her "Big Shot" die-cutting tool. I'm convinced it makes all things possible. And now I want one (figures). Can you imagine hand cutting these shapes? No thank you.

Sunday Afternoon

It's been a weird weekend. Saturday was craft and pottery shows, antiquing, errands, laundry, email accounts and facebook. Yes, I'm now on facebook. (I know, I can't believe it either!)

Today I'm baking bread, making lasagna and trying to make sense of facebook. All the while watching the sunshine melt the last of the snow from my anxious spring garden and staring at my untouched creative "to-do" list. The kitty's are sleeping, hubby's in school and the house is quiet. Here's hoping your Sunday is peaceful, wherever you are.

Art Giveaway, Claimed!

We have a winner...Congratulations, Janet! Next week, Jane will be jetting off to you in sunny Arizona.

Thanks for your kind words, as well. It's amazing what happens when you disappear for a few hours to do laundry and make chicken noodle soup!

For those new to the Bliss blog, I have a monthly Art Giveaway and do my best to post weekly. You can also peruse my creative endeavors over at Blissgirl. I'm working a few options to bring my creations to the masses...incuding the broaches. It's going to be a busy Spring. Stay tuned!

Art Giveaway Alert!

Decorate your favorite denim jacket, purse, sundress, or spring sweater with a mixed-media broach! Each is handmade from scraps of my favorite fabrics and adorned with various details. All have a 3D quality, are pin-backed, and sized between 2"-2.5" around.

Here's how the giveaway works:
Be the first to post a comment here on the blog noting which broach is your favorite, and it's yours! Finally...an Art Giveaway with choices!

Please Recycle

Recently completed a canvas bag and fancy sign for our paper recycle bin--so it looks nicer than a bulging paper bag stuffed inside a fun basket. Apparently, it's also appealing for the homeowner!
