I'm still Here!

I'm still here. I know I have not blogged in a while but you know what happens when I start creating.. I close the doors, dim the lights, turn off the phone, cancel the paper... well, basically I try to be as much of a hermit as possible..
I realized I have not blogged in a long time so I wanted to share with you the wonderful Etsy Feedback Poem Jennifer Ledford of Tocadora Leather left on my Feedback page. I love it! Thank you Jennifer!

Time and again I return to the place
The enchanted glade of texture and glaze
Where beauty abounds and fills me wonder
And quickly divides me and my money asunder

I find stunning cabochons, pendants, and beads
And all of the buttons my leatherwork needs
I just have to have them! I purchase with haste!
Yes, when Lisa is listing, I wear my game face.

I’ve built up a stash, and they’ve traveled with me
From El Paso, Texas to this fine southern city.
Every day I steal time, to touch them and play
These miniature artworks, created from clay.

I put them on leather, I wrap them in wire
I’ll string them with beads for all to admire
I’ll sell them and ship them with wistful goodbyes
So I’ll have more money to score the next prize!

Lisa, oh Lisa, her work’s outta sight
Who else’s listings a frenzy incite
Where it’s artist ’gainst artist in pure buying lust
And the gleeful victor facebooks “Eat my Dust!”?

I’m so glad to know her, It’s truly a pleasure
As artist AND person, Lisa’s a treasure.
I honor her wisdom, her humor, and courage.
And I am so proud to be in her entourage.

Yes. Entourage doesn’t rhyme with courage…
but I’m taking some license cause it looked so darn cool. ;D
