These days, I am trying to make as many things as I can with my own hands. Here are some bookends that I made with some scrap wood, yellow paint and two cans of spinach from the dollar store. I like the way they turned out. I also like my new life in Cape May. I live in a real house, have a studio of my own, started a craft club, and have recently become the artist-in-residence at a local thrift store. We just survived Hurricane Sandy in good shape and are looking forward to walking on the beach again soon.
