a february reprieve from winter

Look who Dave found in the garden today, singing away in the sunshine with a chorus of her crocus friends. Pretty soon she'll be joined in the studio by Flora, a magnolia fairy and her friends Gus and Weed...keep checking in here and at the Camp Cactus Etsy shop.

Happy Spring!

spring cleaning

Sheesh! Camp Cactus is a mess! Bits and pieces of stuff and junk on all the work surfaces, left over from the mad rush to complete a bunch of new pocket shrines ("Russell's reliquaries") for the "Say it with Heart" valentine's show at Jude's

I have to say, I was actually a bit shocked when most of them sold. I guess I wasn't too sure how they would be received, but all in all, it was a great show. All the artists pitched in with a surplus of good energy and got the word out. As always, working with Jude was fun and relaxing, and for me, an exercise in letting myself go with the flow, instead of having to be the flow! Thanks, Jude!

So, today is studio cleanup day...gotta get ready for some new fairies to visit!
