Yes, the midwest is a place where the air hurts your skin 1/3rd of the year. I'm a different person when the sun shines. Winter days when the sun pours into my little house are transformative. I'll drop what I'm doing, collect my latest bracelets and set them in the sunbeams to see how they are come alive when the light pours through them. It helps.
Next Sunday, come to Affair of the Arts in Spring Grove, Illinois. It's a fabulous little art show. It will transform you.
Wrap your wrists with Love!
I've completely given into my lifelong love of beads, stones, making stuff and stories, not particularly in that order.
