Here are some new creations by Kevin Frederici, Tara Cain and myself!

I'm really enamored of Tara's gorgeous Zen Rocks watercolors. These are the original works too, not prints. The other paintings were made on site over these past few weeks when Kevin and I were experimenting with paint.

Found by happy accident! I was fluoresing Kevin's artwork, and I discovered that one of my bracelets from Kayla has a fluorescent green stone, which I originally thought was aventurine. Turns out it's Willemite. Looking up information, I realized why I was so drawn to it!

Willemite welcomes those who are newly on their spiritual journey and developing psychic abilities. It helps bring a sense of "ease" to these newcomers. This crystal can be a mirror to your soul so that you can step back and see yourself. Willemite helps you do this with no judgment, and this helps you see what changes need to be made so that you can work on them. This crystal helps you work on patience and keeping on your tasks. It is also fluorescent under UV light.

The pendant above is Zincite (red/orange, Franklinite (black), and Willemite (white).

Astrological Sign: Ta**us

People often ask me if there are cool things to do near Occoquan. Here's something I'd recommend that's fun and free for all ages. Boardwalk Lights at Neabsco Boardwalk.

A few things to know before you go. It's a mile walk before you get to the actual boardwalk so wear comfy shoes or boots if it's been raining due to muddy conditions. The parking lot is small and fills up quickly. Be prepared to park in the neighborhoods nearby if the parking lot if full. Be patient, there will be families with littles posing for pics along the path. Bring a flashlight for walking along the darker pathways. Dress warm, take pics, have fun!

It's a good news, bad news day. Our poor June is out sick today and I'm off site hanging my artshow at a local community center. The gallery is "open*sh"..Roger is there but can only take cash sales. I may be able to pop in after my art is up. If so I'll post again when I arrive.

Please send June some good vibes.

It's hard to believe, but some people actually exaggerate about what they do for a living. It's RUFF! (Thank you Penny and Dylan, wonder what you're saying here?)

A humorous gift for anyone who has ever dated! :-)
