A favourite artist

Marcia Decoster is someone I admire.
Here is her blog if you are interested.
She works with seed beads and makes stunning jewelry. Seed beads drive me crazy, they are so tiny and they inadvertently end up on the floor or across my desk. I saw some of Marcia's work in Milwaukee last year at Bead & Button. She was so nice and her work was stunning.

My Secret Daughter

I just finished this book: My Secret Daughter by Shilpi Somaya Gowda
Just an amazing book about 2 mothers in very different circumstances. And then, I was looking for the cover for this blog post, I typed in the title into Google and came across this site. Great reviews and great suggestions for when you are looking of what to read next!

Cirque du Soleil

I LOVE Cirque du Soleil, so we just bought tickets! What fun. It will be in August but I am already excited.....
Now I need someone to come to the Opera with me. Puccini's Turandot is on in early 2012... Anyone?
School's out for the summer so I am already enjoying myself by making plans.

Spring has sprung!!

Spring is my favourite season. I love all of them but spring is so great. All is new and the tulips are the symbol of spring. I was in Seattle and at the market there were so many. Check these out!

Happy Mother's Day

This is one of may favourite days. It makes me feel special. A surprise breakfast, some special presents from my baby and most of all, a handmade card. It is truly a unique bond you feel with your child. The best thing that can happen to anyone! The love of and for a child, so precious.... To all of you who have a special child in your life, as mothers, aunts or other ways, Happy mother's day!
