Secret Garden Challenge.....come take a look.

Secret Garden 2015 

Welcome back to my creative journey in not only blogging but jewelry making.  I have had a few curve balls thrown my way and have had to create on the go at my studio and I am at my mom’s condo 4 days a week. I carry supplies (a lot) of what I think I may have time for and may need back and forth.

There was another  challenge in January that I wanted to complete with the group Bohemian Vibe, which was started by Brenda Sue Lansdowne & Christi Friesen in conjunction with a class that I attended in May 2014, sponsored by B’sue Boutiques ( Christi is a popular worldwide polymer clay artist and author of many books & has great clay products at (

It was a lot of fun and I am using some of the same flowers for my Build a Line Challenge (BALC) which will have some simpler designs.
That’s all for now. The second blog hop for the BALC challenge will be this Friday February 20th. Hope you stop back and you will be able to find so many other wonderful blogs from many talented artists.
