I am reopening my jewelry and art site on Etsy today!
I am loving motherhood, with my ever-active, two-year old son, Zequi, and my two totally creative and very interesting and intelligent stepchildren, Lili and Diego (grade school and middle school ages). They are inspiring. I am learning to be a child again and enjoy simple things. I know that is totally over-used to say that, but I really sat in the swimming pool with my clothes on blissfully splashing just to splash to see why on earth my two-year old was squealing with joy…and behold…it WAS fun!
I do have my art shed in which to store my tools and creativity, which is my “wo-Man cave,” but with a 2 year old to look after, I haven’t gotten to hang out there much. Every time I step in there, however, I enter a world of creativity with so many half-captured ideas and unfinished explorations in art, that I cannot wait for more time to spend there to finish my artistic adventures.
Currently, my family is planning a missions trip to Puebla, Mexico. We will be helping/working at an “orphanage” which helps children who have been abandoned either by family that could not support them, that were abusive, or who really have no family. My jewelry and art sales will be going toward my family’s journey there in January of 2015. We went at the end of last year, and my husband has a real love for this ministry and what it happening there. It is one of the best run organizations I have gotten to see, and I have gotten to see inside of many over the years.
