Wow! I have been featured on the Everyday Living blog! That is so neat! You can check it out here:

Yesterday I had the rare treat of spending the whole day in my shop alone, no kids, to do whatever I want. I decided to take on a fairly large sculpture and I'm so happy with how it turned out. I can't wait to post it. It still needs to be strung and put together, but when it's done, it will be almost 4 feet from top to bottom.
I suppose, this being my second post ever I should kind of explain what I do. I am a trash-to-treasure artist. I like to find things that would normally be thrown out and make them into something pretty. All my wire sculpture is reclaimed electric fencing. I twist it all by hand, shape it and weld it, clean it and then paint it. Sometimes they hold candles or seeds for the birds, sometimes they get strung with recycled glass and made into windchimes. Then they are posted to my etsy site for "adoption." I love making them, each one is unique and with that handmade quirkyness that can't be duplicated with a machine. Anyway, I hope if you follow my blog, you enjoy what you see and maybe it will inspire you as well.
