happy new year to all

The weather outside is frightful, although the sun is finally shining. I know I shouldn't be such a baby, but baby, it's COLD outside! I've got the fireplace cranked up in the studio, but I can still see my breath out there, and it's making it hard to work with miniscule scraps of paper and bits of stuff. I'm working on some tiny little "love shrines" for a show coming up in a couple of weeks. (see the blurb in the right hand column.)
I called my sister Kathy a week or so ago, to get some ideas for what to call these little things...pocket shrines? mixed media assemblages?
She came up with: "Russell's Reliquaries - Diminutive Deposits of Hope"...I kinda like it!
