July, 2015

Because I will be leaving tomorrow and will not return until July 3rd, I am publishing the July edition early.

My intention was to present my collection series this month but on the 20th of June I had a 'Gathering of the Goddesses Shrine Party' to honor the Summer Solstice.  So many beautiful works of art were created.  I decided to share them with you instead.

It was a very special day.  Fourteen women gathered to create an homage, an altar or a shrine.

I hope you enjoy their creativity!

I did not have the opportunity to photograph everyone and some shrines were not photographed as they were not completed.

so quiet and we're not eating."

 Kay was still working on her shrine...we wish her well.

I hope you have enjoyed the change of pace in this blog.  There is nothing like the camaraderie of

a group of creatives gathering to share a special event.

Until we 'create' again, I will close.

You may find me on Pinterest and soon an updated website.
