It's a New Year - It's a New Blog.
We have had a bit of down time around the studio which I have welcomed with open arms. I've had the chance to catch up on some of my favorite things and find inspiration in others and nature.
I have been taking some design classes and am really enjoying the opportunity to be creative - just for me.
I took these photos before our Big Snow event that has been going and going and going here in the Heart of it All. Our up coming vacation to the beach is looking sweeter every day!
I just loved these guys. I work so much with cuttings, it's wonderful when I get to marvel in the beauty of a live plant. Stuck to the ground. Yummy holly berries, viburnum, winterberry and crabapples. Aren't they divine?!
These were all taken at the Chadwick Arboretum's Learning Gardens on OSU's campus. (Where me and my husband met during a work/study program, six and a half years ago.) A special place, indeed. I highly recommend a visit if you are in the area.
My hope for this Blog in the New Year is that it will be not only about my work experiences, but also about what and who inspires me as a artist and designer.
Enjoy and have a wonderful wintery day.
