An Ocotillo Obsession in My Artsy-Fartsy World

The artist sees what others only catch a glimpse of. Leonardo da Vinci quote at MyDesertLove.com

**Warning: A little bit of a rant ahead** I have always been the excitable one in my family. “Its really not that good, Vi.” “What is the matter with you?” I like something, better yet – love something, I’m all a-tither! My puppies can relate – yes, I have an invisible tail. I’m confessing now. […]

My Desert Love Designs

Just wanted to share something that REALLY made my day.
Such super generous words - I swear I didn't edit or encourage her in any way ;-) -- Just a relief that it all came through.

It was a really great opportunity to touch over 200 people with my handmade goods. For the Annual Javelina Club Women's Brunch 2018 -- Eeek it was nerve-wracking, but my trusty partner USPS came through once again!

Lordy - I don't know if there's a notification on Etsy for when you get a review posted - probably is, but it always takes forever for things to "click" in my world. I came across my latest review just yesterday - hello! It was posted on the 1st - ugh. Goes to show how the days blow by for us up here on this desert mountain. I admit I kinda avoid my reviews - waiting in trepidation - you know putting yourself out there creatively is SO rewarding, but also a bit of self-torture. hee-hee

I posted "Do you need a moment like this?"
