He has the MuSic in Him...

Amazing artist, musician and advocate for PEACE... Todd Hansen (aka tmusichans) is one of my very first Etsy Friends and makes me laugh with his quick humor and positive outlook on life. He has two shops on Etsy- his original shop tmusichans and newest Etsy shop destash4u. It was so hard to pick just a few of his art pieces! I love his use of color and carefree style. With the colors and feel of Santa Fe & his strong influence for peace on earth it is no wonder he has his own following. ..

Here is one of his "peace" inspired art works. Keeping it green many of his pieces have recycled wood & wire incorporated into them. I am fortunate enough to have some of Todd's wonderful "Santa Fe" custom art tiles hanging in my own studio. You can find his hand made and one of a kind designs in his Esty shop tmusichans Peace and Pottery from Santa Fe~

One of his latest projects "prayer flags"- There are several styles to choose from or have one custom made! Purchase these flags,other hand sewn art pieces and vintage items in his Destash4u shop-
Please check out both of his Etsy shops & Todd's personal blog "Peace through Pottery".

Studio on the Hill

Oh what joy it is to have a little space to be yourself, listen to old music, create and be inspired! Surrounded by artwork by friends and a few of my own seconds I could not be happier. My husband made this little studio for me a few years ago with left over cedar planks and blue pine. It has little crank windows, turquoise shelves and the softest lemony walls. I sit at a old 50's chrome and yellow laminated table rolling out my clay and making whatever comes to mind. Two guardians sit at the covered porch dreaming of bones and cats to chase. In the summer time I crank open my windows and listen to the birds sing. It is mostly peaceful except of course my music! In the wintertime I have a little radiator heater to keep the small space warm and love hearing the patter of rain against the windows. I recently was given the most wonderful magazine called "Where Women Create"- it is such fun to take a peek into someone's special space. So many little clues to their persona there. I would love to hear where you love to create!
