Welcome to my blog

Today is a beautiful rainy spring day in Seldovia. A little wind, a little sun and here and there some sprinkles of rain.

I am making some homemade soup and finishing up some artwork. I am so glad you stopped by..please get yourself a cup of coffee and join me in my kitchen studio.

I have a regular studio upstairs ...but to tell you the truth..my kitchen table is where I do most of my art....with a cup of coffee and good friends stopping by to chat. Sit down and stay awhile..I am never too busy for company!

Bright beautiful and 20*.......somehow you don't notice the cold when it is sooooo incredibley beautiful outside...everything sparkles with the new snow. Looking very Christmasy around here.

This is what I am working on today. Finishing up this fairy and getting ready to put a couple of things in my Etsy Store. I am so excited about doing that. Just learning the ins and outs of it. I know I need to work on writing a good script for the item...but I am sure I will get the hang of it as I go along ....learn as I go sort of thing. Mistakes will be made but that is also learning.

Alaska in December

Alaska in December is cold and dark. It is the seemingly hardest time to get through. I think if you have a hobby it helps.

Mine is polymer clay sculpting and watercolor painting. I hope to share some of my work here on this blog. I am new to blogging and so am learning as I go.

I live in a small Alaskan fishing village. The only way in or out of the village is by plane and only in the daylight hours...or by boat. There are only about 250 people living here in the winter and it feels like a really big safe loving family. My brother's wife calls it my "bubble world" yep she is right..it is....

I am the mother of 6 incredible children, beautiful, smart and talented....all grown now with children of their own.....

Well time to post this to see how it actually works....
