Tell me what you want?

"Tell me what you want, what you really, really want!" the song by the Spice Girls begs. Now I beg of you, appreciators and artisans alike.  What is it that would tempt you sorely to part with your hard-earned dollars these days? What would you like to see in the store window above?

Why do I need to know?  

Any artist trying to survive needs a public, needs to find a need and fill it.  I don't care if you're a poet or a sculptor, you are looking for a niche to fill.  And those of us who read, listen, wear, and most of all have hard-earned dollars to share want something really special.

Lately I haven't cared that I don't have much to spend because I don't see all that much that really sings to me.  However, I will save my desires for the next post.  Right now I want to hear from you.

  • What stories that haven't been told are you longing to read?  
  • What colors can't you find out there?  
  • What would you wear and need to wear that just isn't being offered anywhere?  
  • And so on?   Tell me more. . .
Please, please tell me in your comments on this blog.  All you have to do is click on the word comments and the window will tell you what to do.


To get what you want and need and more, it is necessary to formulate a vision of it and most of all ASK!

What's Happening at Heart*space?

Hi Friends,

I've been neglecting my Etsy Store and this blog for a few weeks due to some unpleasant adventures. Trust me, it was no picnic, but love carried us through. At last everyone is well and hope is rising with the flowers.

I'm back on a creative binge.  I have begun work on three altar installations and have placed some of my newest jewelry creations at a cool beauty salon called Images Unlimited where Jenny, Tari and the other talented stylists help men and women to look their best from head to toe.  I'm so pleased to have already sold a few of my most fashion forward pieces to Images Unlimited clients already!  Just for joy and for a Mothers' Day gift to myself I got my scraggly hair cut for the first time in ages.  I must say they did a great job.

So, if you live in Portland, Oregon and need a good haircut, you'll have to run down to Images Unlimited where they'll pamper you royally.  Tell them Claire sent you and take a look at my Mermaid Necklaces, one with the look of beach glass, the other with charms and pearls.

While my life settles back to its usual happy chaos, I will finish the Wise Women installations and hope to post them soon.  In the meantime, I pray that spring warms into summer less eventfully, or at least may all your events be blessed.  I know I am glad to be alive and living right here at this time.
