Earth Day every day

Today is Earth Day. In my world it’s Earth Day every day. I preserve, protect and cherish her. She is my God. She breathes life. Her breath is our breath as well. Without her, we cease to exist. So honor her, thank her; and most of all, respect her. Happy Earth Day! Peace, Jomama www.shopjomama.com

Talisman project with Ice Resin®

When I agreed to participate in the Ice Resin® Talisman project I had to pick a word. Any word. My thoughts are, of ALL of the possible words, which one shall I use? The talisman word I chose is… nur·ture [Nourrir in French] noun \ˈnər-chər\: the care and attention given to someone or something that is growing or developing. I've never thought of myself as a nurturing person. I don't coddle or baby, I'm too busy for that. I'm independent and motivated, and I love to do my own thing. But then, it hit me! I do nurture. I nurture my soul, while creating, I nurture the earth when I garden, and also when I recycle; I have the utmost respect for her. I've realized I nurture nature. I'm beginning to notice something here; I AM a nurturer! So you may not think of yourself this way either, but in some way, you probably are. Somewhere deep within. So, whatever aspect of your life it is that needs you, nurture it!
Here I used copper wire, a hobnail bezel, Ice Resin®, Iced enamels, a bottle cap, quail egg and a wishbone...

Spring trends 2014

Spring is here! You know what that means? Spring trends. Now I'm not trendy, never have been, but who doesn't like a few new pieces in their wardrobe? So I like to keep an eye out. First up Pantone radiant orchid. Not sure how I feel about this one, reminds me a little of Barney the dinosaur.
Heels and socks; Ok, I've been doing this for years and people thought I was crazy :)
Tribal touches; I'm on board. Let's just not go overboard with this please.
Flowing pants; Now this I can dig! Soft, feminine, and no muffin top!
Bottom line here, take what you like from the latest releases and put your own twist on it. Create your own style. Be you; don't buy an outfit off the mannequin! Happy spring! Peace, Jomama
