A Vermont Daily Briefing...


Those who know and love me best are aware that I occasionally have "political opinions" and when perchance the topic is brought up or inadvertantly stumbled upon, do their best to promptly change the subject.

Sometimes, as luck would have it, someone comes along who, like myself, and hopefully with a good bottle of wine, wouldn't mind "whittling away the hours" in fervant debate about the foibles and follies of American politics.

I guess I got lucky. Check out my Nov. 7 Featured Reader Spot, titled:
"This is VDB: In Which Vermont Daily Briefing Readers are Revealed to be Themselves"
on the number one political blog in Vermont, "Vermont Daily Briefing."

It's a good thing my studio has windows...

There is just something wonderful about going bra-less and staying in my sweats and tee for the entire weekend; doing nothing but drinking coffee in the morning, wine in the evening, all the while fervishly creating little goodies for my upcoming craft shows- like a little elf trying to beat Santa's deadline...(was that a run-on sentence??)
I have managed to make 4 more art journals, and two mixed-media art dolls- and thanks to 104.7 "The Point" for its Saturday night 11-1 AM show, (I think its called "The Cosmic Lounge??" ) for its inspiring world music...and as you can see from my little creation below, the music definitely had its effect on me! (visit my shop www.itselemental.etsy.com to see how it was made). And as of today, the last remnants of the autumn leaves are falling from the trees in my backyard- including a gargantuan Oak, and a maple that appeared to be aflame during its peak. I thought the leaves on the ground would make a nice backdrop for my art doll pics.

Craft Madness!!
