  • Butterflies!

    A few hours ago, I celebrated my dear friend’s birthday with her and a group of her adoring pals. She is a kind-spirited, generous, and warm woman, always giving off good “vibes!” I recently found out that her family refers to her as a sweet, playful “butterfly.” I chose to make a butterfly design in […]

  • My Birthday!

    Today is my birthday! 🙂 Janis Joplin said, “I’d trade all my tomorrows for a single yesterday.” Our past defines us, but I am looking forward to the future!

    My birthday is Thursday and I received a very special gift this afternoon. A close friend and mentor gave me an antique Native American turquoise ring.
