Autumn Oak Leaf

I beaded this piece and donated it to the Park People of Milwaukee for them to auction off at their silent auction last Saturday. In attendance was Jane Kaczmarek, star of Raising the Bar and Malcolm in the Middle.

Imagine my immense pleasure when I was told today that Jane Kaczmarek had purchased the piece, and said that it was stunning. I am still excited and pleased as punch.

Today's quote comes from chemist Marie Curie - Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.

How wonderful for you! I love the vivid colors and yet the simplicity of the design. No wonder Jane bought it!
