America Is Not… Is
America is not a land marked by boarders on a map
America is not made of rock land or sea
America is not the country
we were fooled into
mistaking it to be
America is not a monger of war
not a preacher of nationalism
America does not exploit
the weaknesses of humanity
America has never been
or depicted properly
by those career manipulators
America is not a place
where one man can reject
the presence of another
America is raw unearthed potential
freedom truth beauty equality!
America resides in the heart and mind
America is home of the human spirit
America is a dream of potential earth utopia
America is something we all cherish and long for
America, its time we redefine ourselves
rethink our concept of who we are.

So I had my first solo jewelry party Saturday, and needles to say I was nervous as hell. In between falling of a chair while I was decorating, and trying to make my earring tags two hours before the party; I was convinced it was going to be a total failure, and found myself in a mental spiral blaming myself for not being prepared. Why oh why, did I leave so much for the last minute.
But I was wrong! The party turned out wonderful! Some friends came by early to help me finish decorating, and getting the food out while I got my forest display finished. And since the party was in my tiny communities clubhouse I wasn’t expecting much of a turn out, but boy was I happy to be wrong.
For three hours, there was tons of people coming in and out , even better everyone who came purchased something and said that they would be back for more! Most people were amazed that I create this silver jewelry by hand, using Art Clay silver paste to cast leaves from my garden and creating other work from Art Clay Silver clay.

Well I’ve been missing for a few days, but I swear I have a good excuse. I spent all of last week (when I wasn’t working on my jewelry) getting ready for our Halloween Party. Thursday and Friday I made ribbons for the costume contest plus Halloween crackers; paper towel tubes covered in black crepe paper, and then filled with toys and candy and sealed at the ends with orange spiders. I was also working on desserts. I wanted a lot of red and orange to really pop on the black trays that they were going to be on. So I dipped strawberries, dried mango, and apricots in dark chocolate, made pretzels wands dipped in milk chocolate with white chocolate and sprinkles whipped over them. Plus Chocolate cupcakes with bright orange colored vanilla butter-cream icing with chocolate and silver sprinkles. I was all set to be delicious!
We were just about finished getting the house ready Friday night, when Rich and I decided to run out and grab a quick dinner.
