One Brush Stroke at a Time

Well it's finally Fall here in middle Tennessee. Thankfully the heat has dissipated and we're on our way to cooler weather. I couldn't be happier about that.

I'm slowly working my way through the utter despair and sadness of losing my #1 dog, Freckles. His death hit me hard and broke my heart. This is the kind of event that for me, makes me not only huddle under the covers and retreat from the world, but also makes me take a hard look at my life and realize what is important and what brings me happiness and joy and peace. Sometimes you have to seek out those things and other times they're right under your nose.

Like doing my art. That gives me peace. And happily this week I got several orders from both my Etsy stores; By Way of Salem and Salems Charms. It makes me happy to know people like my work. I create things to my liking, not what I think will sell (that never works), or what's trendy. I just do what I love and makes me smile, and if I'm lucky, others will love it too!

Painting witch's this week!

Love making jewelry for horse lovers!
