Wild Atlantic Salmon!

I just put the fish into the oven. You can tell the difference between the wild versus the farm raised salmon, the color on the wild is a red/pink color, and the farm raised is a pink. I haven't had wild salmon in years! I remember back when I used to live in WA state, we used to go fishing and caught salmon, that was fun. I am also in the process of making rice and asparagus for the meal also. Maybe a salad too. Then we gotta eat, once hubby comes home from work, and then off to the gym!

Thai green curry

So far today I went to school, came home, called real estate people about apartments for rent, and left a message, and am now defrosting chicken, I am gonna attempt to make this Thai green curry. There is a recipe on the back that sounded tasty, I got the ingredients for it yesterday,its called Thai ginger chicken & cashew nuts. Hubby is at work for some extra $$, we need it, plus they asked him to come in, so he should be done with this in a half hour or so, so I better get cooking!

I need to go to the bead store!

I am  really running low on all my beads, I really need to go to the bead store! But my husband and I  are going to be moving though down to PA in two weeks and I really don't have money to spend on beads, need that for moving. I hope there will be some bead stores around or rock stores, but it doesn't look like there are, its in the state college vicinity.  Might have to buy online. hmmm.....

Etsy Artisan Interview for March!


1., How did you find Etsy?
A friend of ours who is a potter mentioned Etsy to us during the time we were having a Holiday Openhouse. We thought we would try it out!

2., How did you get into the craft/artwork that you do now?
I have been painting and drawing since I was 7 years old. After attending college, I graduated with a degree in Fine Arts and English. Right around the time I turned 30, someone gave me an oxyacetylene torch set and I started cutting up old car parts. The very first piece I made was an angel in memory of my second oldest sister who died before she turned 40. I am also an artist in residence for the PA council of the Arts and have been an active teaching artist for them for almost 15 years.

3., What inspires you?
I am inspired by nature, my pets and my dreams!

4., Who is your fav. artist?
My favorite artist is an artist named Franz Marc. I love his form of animals and color that leads to abstract art but is still recognizable. I also love the Impressionist artists.
