Gato...finished a gorgeous home in Saddlebrook.  I
try to spend as much time in Arizona as I can while
we still have one in high school in Illinois and one
in college in Alaska!   Annie is my Vice President
and I consider her Tucson home as my other
studio...as I am always inspired and moved to
create something different and exciting!

Evenings...wine by the Kiva, warming our toes..as
the mountains turn purple..
Margaritas at El Mezon...

A ride in the desert on the new Harley....

and more...

Just returned from the Tucson Gem and Mineral
Show...Great class with Cece Wire at the Tucson
Hilton...What a super group of women we had for
our Certification Course.

All so very talented...each with their special gifts
and something to bring to the table.
