Zebra Love

I have been experiencing a medical breakdown. It is effecting every aspect of my life - my relationships, my daily life, even my own ability to function without pain or pressure or loss of perspective. I wouldn't recommend it...

I'm not having a lot of fun, here, so it was a pleasure to see the fabulous Etsy Treasury that Tamra of Sock Monkey Greetings created. The truly wonderful part is that she included some fabulous artists and even one of my picture frames! Click the image below to view until Friday, November 21st and enjoy!

All That Gitters...oops...Glitters!

I had one hour left to see it but I was so glad I did! The Biscotti Queen from Fogl's Kitchen created a wonderful Etsy Treasury. But, she also graciously included one of my newer creations, a gemstone necklace of Onyx and Rhodonite. I was very proud to see the fabulous work my necklace was keeping company with - please take a peek below!

Fogl's Kitchen

After years of baking with my grandmother, I am passing on her wonderful cookies to you. I've been baking biscotti for years and have moved from ebay to etsy. Recently, Fogl's Kitchen came to Etsy from Ebay. We LOVE the new space, and the wonderful people we've met.
