Equinox is a wonderful thing. Astronomically, It's the time when the sun crosses the plane of the earth's equator making night and day of approximate equal length all over the earth––or to put it another way, it's when dark and light come into balance.
Is it just me? Seems like there's lots of imbalance going around these days.
For me, imbalance leads to unbalance ... and one of the thing I do when I'm feeling unbalanced is move energy around. Because I'm an artist, that means "making things". Over time, I've made a lot of things. And things are beginning to pile up.
My display area
is positively overflowing
with necklaces, bracelets,
pins, and pendants.
So, during this years Vernal Equinox, let's create some balance. Come to my Open Studio on Saturday, March 25th between 11a.m. and 5 p.m. or contact me to make an appointment.
Artgurl Studio Address: 4239 Minnesota Avenue, Fair Oaks, CA.

During one of our classroom prompts, she dashed off this amazing little poem and it got us thinking...
Illustrations would be fun.
Here's what Crystal and I came up with.
