My Cats of Creation: Updates and Gratitude

For many years, I posted a photo of Tiki or Bamboo any time I managed to squeeze at least a half-hour of writing into my day.

Sister Circle Necklaces

Whenever our Sister Circle gathers, we are often treated to handmade necklaces by Jaidra DuRant to mark the occasion. Jaidra uses semi-precious stones, intricate copper wire wrapping, hand-stamped and glazed clay pieces, and leather to create warm, earthy, one-of-a-kind pieces.
