Cindy Wimmer
I love visiting Cindy's blog because she’s the total package ... talented jewelry artist, loving mother and wife, loyal friend, and sweet-as-pie person! I’m always greeted by visual eye candy at her blog, plus the most generous spirit.

 

Diane Cook
I so admire Diane's authentic self, which shows through all of her work, whether it be a photograph, a blog post, her packaging, or her gorgeous jewelry! She has definitely "found herself" and I appreciate the example she sets for all of us.

 

Deez News
I absolutely love people who have a sense of humor and particularly those who laugh at themselves. Even her sidebar quip — "Kippers" ... Kids in Parents' Pockets Eroding their Retirement Savings" cracks me up. I don't know why I'm laughing ... I've got a coupla those!

As a child, making art saved me ... it saved me from book reports and other mundane projects! As I grew into my teenage years my love for creativity segued into theater as I designed costumes and sets for my high school plays ...
