Day by Day

Winter is ticking along, and I find myself thinking about the warm times to come. My mind dances around the thought of spring colors and activities.

Spring weather makes the for the best crystal mining. This is a quartz speciman my Miguel mined Arkansas. If you have never gone crystal or fossil mining, you are missing out.

Even during the dormant months, the colors of nature are ever present. You just have to look a little harder for them. This evergreen bush only shares its crimson fruits in the winter, keeping the brightly hued wild birds fed and singing.

My hands have been nimble and warm in the studio. Currently, I am inspired by the sleeping spring flowers and grasses. Here is a sneak peak of some lovelies made with repurposed materials.

What excites you most about spring?
