This year has gotten off to an exciting start – from the redesign of my website to an exciting trip to Ireland touring the countryside and castles. I have attached a picture of one of my favorite places, the Blarney Castel in Cork Ireland. The reason it was my favorite place is that the weather that day was just perfect. The second biggest reason I loved it so much was for its beauty and peacefulness. It left me feeling connected to nature and inspired at the same time. I surely was not excited to leave this beautiful place, but I was so excited to start creating pieces with ideas I had gotten from the rolling hills and countryside. Please keep an eye out in the next few months for new pieces and a new collection from my trip to Ireland. I hope that someday you will consider a trip to this beautiful country.
