This is the part I like most about what I do. I like experimenting and coming to understand the medium more each day. I like trying new ideas that cross my mind, to test the way things will respond, sometimes, they don't pan out and sometimes they do. I caught a bit of flow with my works and I'm enjoying floating downstream. My goal is to finish these pieces today and have something to show you tomorrow.

on another subject.....Have you read Life of Pi? I yelped when I saw the film trailer it looks WONDERFUL! If you haven't read it you should before the film is out, you might like it, it's one of my favorite books.

on still another subject.... Do you hike with a heavy camera like I do? I found this and have been using it for two weeks, it's the best contraption around. The only little consideration is that wearing your camera by your side makes your hips wider so watch out going though thinny places, you need to swing the camera in front of you, it takes a little bit of awareness.

Here's to a productive day for me and for you too, xo, Ro


  1. I was just thinking about you when this post showed up--wow! Glad you're in the flow--and with such a lovely boatload of stones today. Enjoy!!!!! (And I'll look forward to seeing the results, that's for sure!)

    And, YES, LOVE "Life of Pi"--I even have an autographed copy, which is a treasure. Hope I get to see the movie!

    Happy floating!

  2. Total emersion here, I know you know the feeling. I'm being "self"ish with my time. Work, read, walk.....g l o r i o u s !!

    Oh yeah?, autographed!! YOU are my hero!!

    Ang Lee He's the MAN :)

  3. Oooh! Very pretty! Can't wait to see them all finished. You've been busy!
    I'm going to get that book, I remember hearing about it years ago and then I never got around to reading it.
    I'll have to check out that camera thingy too, I never have my camera on me because it's so heavy I hate lugging it around.

  4. Hi DJ, yes I have been busy and enjoying it too.

    It's a wonderful book, I hope you do read it.

    I detest carrying my heavy camera but I know if I don't I'll regret it, this strap certainly makes it more pleasant.

    I hope you have a good day!

  5. Oh me, oh my, I'm a fool for your jewelry ! Your offerings look delicious already :). (You had me at the earlier photo of stones.)

    I know of the book, but have not read it. I love recommendations, so that's awesome. Thanks for the cool idea too for toting my camera.

    Good girl being "self"ish with your time. Hope your fingers are better as you Ro Ro Ro your boat.....goin' where the flow takes you!


    1. Oh boy I don't know what I was thinking with all those rings to finish, three settings yet to build, I had to keep my head down, I went full bore then ended my day at the dog wash, Scout too!

      I hope you do read it Lisa, its wonderful!! REALLY!!

      I did, I was rowing and rowing :)


  6. I'm so glad to be able to sit again, at the computer,I'm finally on the mend again!
    Love those stones Ro, and the settings...yummy!

    1. You certainly have been on my mind, I'm so HAPPY you're finally feeling better!!!!! I had to drive right past you to visit the stone guys, I wanted to pick you up but I may have had to do it in the literal sense.


  7. You have been one busy lady! I can't wait to see the finished products.

  8. Busy and crazy, I bit off a lot but I got em done, YAYYYY, pictures today. I'm also hunting for a model, can you come over?
