I was gone for 2 weeks, teaching in Tennessee and North Carolina. When I returned home, I had 2 weeks to finish filming and editing my second online summer workshop with Artful Gathering. I knew I could do it, but I didn't anticipate all the technical issues with camcorders, tripods, computer issues etc. Arggggggg, i'm ready to shoot myself! But finally, I am done! Here is a little promotional video of my second session class on soldering. Now unfortunately I have no excuses why I don't have time to clean my house :(

I was just sitting at the kitchen table when i heard a loud "thud" and knew immediately a bird had hit the window. Went out and scooped him up and realized he was just a bitty baby :(
(i suspect he is an eastern goldfinch, our state bird, NJ)
I wrapped him in my scarf and brought him inside; occasionally blowing warm air into his face. He took a hard hit and his eyes were closed for a few. I keep this little insect container around for just instances and placed him inside as he started to come around. About 20 minutes later, I felt he was ready to do the flight check.
off he flew! he is so cute. i've been here since 1995 and have never seen a goldfinch baby :)
he's still hanging out in the same spot. guess that's where he will spend the night. i'll check on my boy in the morning.
Creating is my key to another time. It unlocks the gate to my secret garden; my refuge. It takes me to another era where things were simpler and I find the process soothing to my soul. Lemoncholy’s Studio began with my fondness for vintage items. Searching flea markets, I find items long forgotten, sometimes damaged, but still purposeful. They just need some love and attention. I want these found objects to tell a new story, have meaning and to be inspiring. I have a vision for them to begin again. Intuitively I combine elements in an enchanting way to provoke a narrative response that alludes to something we seek without knowing it. Often, it is a reminder of our childhood. My jewelry is about craftsmanship and virtue but not perfection. By removing perfectionism, I free my imagination to play and ultimately, this freedom results in whimsical pieces of grace and beauty. I am a grown up Navy brat and moved every 2 years of life. This education in life has well prepared for the journey i have chosen for myself. I am the mother of 2 boys, Tucker and Dillon. We live here at the jersey shore in our own little bohemian corner of the world.
