Fairie Necklace

I spent the week end in Boston with a group of music students. Although it was an enjoyable trip I missed my beads and my paper so today I played with beads all day. This is a pewter charm with crystals. These purple crystals are some of the prettiest I've seen. I've loved spending the day in my art room but alas the kids are due home any minute and then it's back to the mom thing.

Playing with collage

I've spent the last couple days getting my hands dirty with collage. I've been doing a lot of straight forward stuff lately so it was really fun to let loose a little bit. Here are two of the ATC's that came out of last nights fun and games.

This one's for you Andrew

When I woke up this morning I didn't even want to move. Somehow a nasty cold snuck up on me through the night and caught me completely unaware. I had been looking forward to wirefest all week and the mind was so ready but the body was weak, literally. The longer I laid on the couch the will to move took over, and I forced myself into the shower. I knew if I could keep moving I'd find myself at wirefest....and I was right. To make a long story short I met a charming young man named Andrew. We had a lovely conversation, I bought some beautiful pendents, and he gave me an ATC. Just that meeting was enough of a reason to get up today, so thank you Andrew. My gift to you is this wonderful Korean Salmon recipe. I hope you find it as delicious as I do.

2 lb salmon fillet
3 Tbsp. soy sauce
2 tsp oriental sesame oil
1 tsp. vegetable oil
1 quarter-size slice fresh ginger, peeled and finely minced
2 green onions, finely minced
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 Tbsp. sesame seeds
1 Tbsp. sugar

Mix all ingredients in a small bowl. Pour over both sides of fish and let marinate in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Cook on grill until done, about 5 min on each side. Enjoy
