My new lovelies!

Hi all,
Oh my goodness, I haven't blogged for a week! Have you noticed?
It's always a toss up of spending time on the computer or creating at my art table. I guess that means that the art table won over the computer this last week, lol.

I've recently joined up with a online selling site called "Glitter and Grunge". I met the owners when I had gone to the ZNE retreat back in March. So, I checked into their site and I love it! So now I have a shop on there called Starrydeborah the same name as my etsy shop, but I sell different items then on etsy. I started a line of dress form lovelies that will be my main focus on G & G.
Mainly french themed dress forms, but foo foo kinds too, lol. Some of the forms will be stand alone designs and some will be attached to containers.
They are one of a kind creations and take a bit of time to make them but I am loving them!
I start off with a cut out wooden shape that I order from a great shop on etsy called "popalicioustoo". And then I just start creating from there.

Hope you like seeing my little works of art.
I'll be making many more designs as time goes on and if you get a chance check out Glitter and Grunge and see all the other wonderful artists on there.
Talk to you soon,

Kayaking with my sweetie.

Hi all,
last Sunday my hubby and I took out our Kayak to the local lake and had a nice leisurely peaceful afternoon on the water. There's something so wonderful about a non engine powered boat, so calming.......
The sound of the water lapping up on the shore and the lulling of the motion of the gentle waves make you so relaxed and happy.
Of course, I was in total Queen mode because my husband did all the paddling, lol. All I had to do was sit back with my feet dangling over into the cool water and enjoy!

Here are a few photos of our day.
Ahhhhh, the dog days of summer...... hope your summer is bringing you relaxation and fun with your loved ones too.
Talk to you soon,

Enchanted Makeovers event!

Hi all,
About a month ago I blogged about an organization called Enchanted Makeovers,
a wonderful non-profit created by Terry Grahl that transforms shelters for women and children into places of peace and possibilities.
They had emailed me out of the blue asking if I would like to donate my teacup cards
for their Celebration of Cooking event that they were putting on for the girls and I just
was so honored to have them ask and I jumped at the opportunity.
Well, their event was held a couple of weeks ago and I wanted to show you a quick
video of the day.
There's even a shot of my teacup cards and it just makes me smile to know I
got to be a part of this wonderful event.

Hope you enjoy the music and the happy day :)

San Francisco bay view!

Hi all,
Last weekend I went down to the San Francisco bay area for
a family reunion/going away party for my nephew.
I caught a ride down with my son and of course we couldn't
let the opportunity pass us by to stop for a minute at Treasure
Island and take in the view of the city of San Fran.

Hope you enjoy the scenery.

Talk to you soon, deborah

Michael, we'll miss you

He was not a king, he was not perfect, he was a human being who had a gift
of dance and music that touched the world.

I'll miss you Michael.
