On My Way To See Some Of Mi Amigos

I'm going to try something new here.  Instead of posting a long blog about my adventures I'm going to break it down.  

Remember the saying?
A picture is worth a thousand words.

So where to begin?
In the Aeroporta of course!

That is the Aeroporta in Querétaro.

See me sitting there in the front?  I'm talking to some dude who lives in SMA.

I LOVE this airport because it is small and only 1 hour away from San Miguel.  
I then hop on a shuttle and drive on over to SMA.

This way you can take it all in (although I didn't have time for that).  Honestly I was asleep for the entire ride.  
What can I say?  
I was exhausted from waking up so damn early that day.

So if you ever have the need to spend some time in San Miguel and skip Mexico City, then this airport is for you!

I got searched AGAIN as I always do.  
Why is that?

Have a great weekend everyone.


  1. Hope you're enjoying your holiday {despite looking so incredibly dodgy that they need to search you!}

    1. LOL! Thanks Cinnamon. I waved to you when we were flying over the UK. Did you see me? I did enjoy our holiday and it was fun being patted down and such! ;)

The Arrowmont Experience Pt. 1

I know from previous experience that I had to ask the driver to stop at a grocery store before dropping us off at Arrowmont.  I was feeling so good about having all my ducks in order and then this happened! I'm sure I screamed WTH because everyone was looking at me but I wasn't the only one in shock.
I was thinking...great!  Now I will have to walk to get my wine.  LOL!!!

Arrowmont for 2 entire weeks!  Yeah....Bring it on.  I can do this...roommate annd all.
I was in Anne Havel's All Fired Up: Who Knew a Torch Could Do All This?
My notebook for ALLLllllll the notes I'm going to take.
OMG!  I don't know where to begin.  I have so much to share.  Let's see...
I fell in love with a cup.
Annnd...then I bought a cup made by Jason B. Burnett.  He had me at the hexagons. Just an aside here.  I couldn't buy the cup I fell in love with.  Arrowmont has an assortment of ceramic cups in the mess hall to use.  I could post a cup a day on Insta but my friend did that.  …

Everything Is Beautiful From Far Away...Or Is It?

I'm getting all up there with my new Olloclip.
It just clips on to my iPhone 5S.  I think that is an adapter for the skinnier version of the phone.  I wanted something easier to carry around other then the massive camera to take real close ups.
Here's what I've done so far.

I'm still learning about the clip but for the most part pretty satisfied.  It's good for those close ups in the studio.  Here's me drawing down wire.  This is when I feel like a true metalsmith.  HAHAHAHA!!!
The clip is also good for your morning walks to get those beautiful close ups of nature.
You see...not everything is beautiful from far away.  Sometimes you have to lean in to see the beauty in the macro world.
Have a great Friday!



Mandalas have been on my mind a lot lately.  Struggling to find my truth.  I find making these in the studio calms me.
Even though I knew that hard solder melts at 1450 degrees I still had to try enameling the copper.  In theory the solder should not have run.  If I only took it out of the kiln a minute sooner this may not have happened. A total melt down but I love that color!  :) My intention for the above mandala was a ring.  The challenge was difficult but I managed to make it. I feel myself pivoting once again and feeling the need to create amulets and talismans but in sculpture form.

Each person's life is like a mandala - vast, limitless circle. We stand in the center of our own circle, and everything we see, hear and think forms the mandala of our life...everything that shows up in your mandala is a vehicle for your awakening.
