At our front door
Winter in Chicago
It must have snowed another 10 " last night!

Lake Effect snow....

Our Patio

Of course, there has to be a cool snow man, dressed for the weather.

 These are some of the photos for our Alaska Cruise in September.  These were taken on Sept. 4.

In Vancouver we had dinner overlooking the harbor. What an amazing sunset!

Cool gnarly  tree!

 We did not have a lot of time to spend in Vancouver, so we took a tour. Stanley Park was quite nice.

We stopped at a market near the harbor, had lunch and wished there was more time to spend before boarding the ship for our journey. We will just have to return to Vancouver some day!

For the past few days, I have been waking up early and feeling energized. If I can harness the feeling it would be really great!   Taking photos does it for me some times.
I feel as though a switch was flicked on!

Look closely, nature's forms are so amazing. Just like delicate granulation encased in resin. A few petals and gold leaf in an oxidized silver form.
The charms can be worn separately or together.

My good friend Toby was in Chicago. We walked past Millenium Park.
Beautiful and truly wonderful to see her.
We were in school at the Art Institute together...

I think that this is the link!!!
All of these great resources and so little time. I wish they could all link together. Some will post to each other when you set it up correctly. And then, when you would rather not post to all... oops. I forgot how to do THAT thing. As a creative person, I like to be able to do it all. And understand it.. and be in control of it. But it all takes time to really learn.
And it takes time away from new designs and true creativity.
I know I am not the only one who suffers from this problem.
This morning I read a discussion on Linked In about some of this. I will post that link, if any one is interested.

This ring makes a real statement ! It is silver and 18K gold. It features a rectangular carnelian cabochon, an oval rose quartz and a pearl. The carnelian is an oasis between the differing elements in the ring.
