Creating in a beautiful place is far better!

More love for Lake Norfork and I included how I spent my time there in this one:
My Beautiful view to Create, Relax, & Enjoy

Working while out here was luxury and not work at all!

When I go to the beach I collect sea shells.  Apparently when I go to the Ozarks in the Fall I collect miniature pine cones.  I have some crafty ideas to do with these!  I'll share them with you, naturally ;)

My very favorite "most comfortable" flip flop broke on Day I spent Day Two walking around on it anyway...quite the challenge considering the terrain.  When we left I decided that I'd get whatever shoe they had in my favorite store in Norfork, Arkansas: For Mother Earth.  Fortunately they had sandals crafted by a Hippie-style community village in lower Missouri.  Unfortunately they were costly (as they should be!) and I had a hard time coughing up the money...I cannot say that I have yet regretted it though!

 Rope Sandals:  yes, I can even run in them!
Camping with just hubby & me is very different than preparing food for all five of us.  I enjoy those times as well, but have to say this was extremely relaxing!

White sandy beach...I kept coming was surreal!
I strung a few necklaces while out there - and I have to say I think they were the best I've made so far.  I don't know if it was the inspiring scenery or the natural light - giving me better opportunity to see what I was doing - but I was satisfied.  After going to "For Mother Earth" I found even more inspiration and created a necklace from the inspiration I felt there and I finally said, "okay, now this is clearly my signature on my art."  That felt good and it honestly surprised me!  So, I'm excited to share it with you.  I am noticing that there is this balance and these mini-seasons of Create/Prepare/Present.  I don't have time to do all at once.  So, bear with me as I've been creating...and thanks so much for supporting!!!!
