Think of every cliche you've heard about the power and mystique of nature and mountains, and you may have your answer. There's a truth and connection that pulls me up the hills like a magnet. If you can't get to the Rockie Mountains, you may be surprised to find your zen moment atop Fort Henry Hill in Kingston, Ontario or for that matter, any mole hill near you.

From Colorado to Canada
Wood smoked night air to the sultry city summer
Only to be eclipsed by an earthquake, a tornado and the G20 Summit violence!
Join me tomorrow when I go to my happy place up Aspen mountain and bring you my new improved

With the help of my daughter Danielle's boyfriend, Mahmood, the inukshuk we built in 2008 actually survived into mid-summer 2009. My first mission upon arrival will be scoot up the mountain in search of the remains of last year's propped up model. I'm not holding my breath as I look at this photo.
Unless I figure out how to do mobile postings from my phone, I will be back the last week of June. By the first week of July, my Etsy store will be stocked with some of what you have seen thus far.

CHI is the word that translates as 'energy of life'. Depending on the eastern discipline, meanings can vary, but I always include the energetic charge of a genuine stone as a prompt to think about the healing.
In this piece, the pink dyed jade is good for emotional grounding and confidence building. It brings balance, courage, wisdom and compassion, and supports several physical ailments including PMS and high blood pressure. Be well today and always. Namaste.

Colette Copeland. And I thought I had an impressive collection.
During a recent get-together, I got to play with some of Colette's Catherine Moore rubber stamps - among others. Yes, I admit
to feeling like a kid in a candy store. And yes, I went online
as soon as I got home to see what I could add to my own collection. Check out www.StampDiva.com.

You know who you are... you run to your mailbox in anticipation of any one of the many Stampington publications. You've seen this adorable bird stamp and the rest of Colette's collection in Somerset Studio, and your incurable need for art and craft supplies takes over each and every room of your home!
Welcome to my world! namaste.

A lifelong obsession with beads and baubles has resulted in a new product soon to be carried in the
Zendoll Workshop. Due to my incurable practicality, most pieces are light weight, colourful, and created with sterling silver findings, genuine gemstones and swarovski crystals. These are yellow peacock glass beads with silver crystals to match the mirrored effect of the glazed bead. Most pairs of earrings will sell for $20. There are many more where these came from! Happy Summer 2010!
