Believe!

I finished a new piece for my friend, Meg Wolf. There is no doubt that Meg Believes! Go see what a remarkable woman she is. You will be inspired.
My own mother had breast cancer last year. It was detected early, and thru the remarkable doctors she saw at M.D. Anderson, in the Houston Medical Center, she did not have to endure chemotherapy. She did take a full load of radiation, which I believe was 27 visits. But, I thank God He gave me more time with her.
Do you see the gorgeous jewelry folder underneath the necklace? It was made by my talented friend, Colette Copeland. Her work is just beautiful!
This past weekend was so gorgeous, I decided my disintegration collaboration package needed to be moved into a more "open" space in my backyard. An area where more of the elements could alter my paper bundle. I bought this wonderful old garden gate in the Big White Tent, at the Round Top Antique Festival, on one of the very first trips I made to the festival. I believe that was about 13 years ago. It has been rusting nicely. I hope some of it gets on my bundle!


Another finished Crystal Princess~this one made for Meg's daughter's 19th Birthday. And, a dainty pair of vintage rhinestone swings! Everyone must have a pair of swings!

Dear Diane,
Every year I go to a wonderful mammography seminar in Sacramento, about 1 1/2 hours away. Every year a wonderful radiologist named Dr. Peter Dempsey speaks to us for an hour or two. Dr. Peter Dempsey comes from the MD Anderson Breast Center. I know how devoted he is to help women fight this disease.

Wow~
Love you~
