Eye Candy

Well, sometimes I don’t have much time to blog. But there’s always enough time to dump a few pics for your viewing enjoyment. Photodump time!!!  Yes, these are my photos. I took them using very advanced photography equipment, this limited edition camera called an “iPhone.” It’s state of the art and hasn’t been released to…

App Magnets, How do they work?

One of the best features of the iPhone is all the 8,000,000 apps at my fingertips; particularly photo and writing apps– a favorite is  ‘Verses Poetry Creator.’ The layout is just like those word tiles you see on fridges and other magnetic-friendly surfaces.   A selection of words is provided in your “word drawer,” which is…

New Art

I’ve been working on new projects in the studio.    When I started making jewelry, I bought tons of beads from Michael’s.  Anyone who’s ever shopped at Michael’s knows how easy it is to spend a month’s rent while stopping in for some string.   Also,  I never felt like the end creation was all “mine,” because…

Art to Break Hearts, 10

When I really worry about something, I don’t just fool around. I even have to go to the bathroom when I worry about something. Only, I don’t go. I’m too worried to go. I don’t want to interrupt my worrying to go. ~J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye “Resist much. Obey little.” — WALT…
