Last of the year PPF

Hi Everyone!

I hope your holiday was blessed and there was lots of love and laughter. This will be our last Paint Party Friday for 2018. I don't know about you but this year has gone by way too fast. On some level that is a good thing. 
Thanks to Eva and Kristin for hosting PPF and allowing all the wonderful artists to get to know each other. You have inspired me, encouraged me and even at times kept me going, 
so thanks to all of you. 
Now I have art and some other things too. As most of you know I have been in quiescence with lupus. It is not a remission but a slowing down of the dis-ease. Most of you also know that after a 50 year run as a bead artist, author and teacher I had to stop beading due to the lupus. I am doing so well right now that I am not only beading but I even crocheted a hat. YAY!!! 
  But first the last few Black to white pieces.

 Peyote with a twist. This is almost finished.

Crocheted hat. I love how this fits

Oh I baked a pear and apple pie tonight. 

And last but not least I have my bathroom finished with my new floor. It has been in for a few weeks now. I love it so much. It is vinyl and so soft beneath my feet.
 It's called Ocean Heaven.

This is the before
 Have a wonderful week and a very 
happy New Year

Honor and integrity in art, in life.


  1. Glad you are well enough to do some beading just now. Your bathroom looks great, too. I wish you a happy and healthy 2019, happy PPF, hugs, Valerie

  2. It's been fabulous to get to know you through PPF Nicole and see all the beauty you have brought to the artistic table. I know how hard that must be for you at times with you suffering with Lupus but you have always managed to deliver. So glad you are having super creative days with your peyote and that sweet crochet hat, it looks so cosy.
    May your New Year be full of never ending creativity.
    Happy PPF Hugs Tracey x
