Wow, it's been a long time since I've visited! Not that I haven't been doing any art. Just haven't been posting on here.
Trio of Colorful Hot Air Balloons by Cillana
Trio of Colorful Hot Air Balloons
I took this photo during the Louisiana Hot Air Balloon Championship Festival in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on August 9, 2009. During this event of the festival, the people manning the balloons were trying to hit a target on the ground. The audience surrounded a field where the target was. It was exciting to watch the balloons come from over the trees, dip down low to try to hit the target, then quickly rise back up again to get over the trees on the other side of the field.

Prints for sale on Etsy:…
It's gotten too hot to take photos. Anyway the birds and flowers have disappeared with the heat as well. They don't like it either. I have plenty of previously taken photos to go through, but I just got tired of it. I got some new business cards and I'm trying to see if I can sell my prints at a couple local nature clubs with a percent donation to the club. Haven't heard back yet on the first one. Other one is on break until September.

So back to making jewelry! I got some new tools and books. I'm trying some new techniques. Hopefully I'll get some photos up soon.

I'm also spending my time researching some vintage items (so far costume jewelry) left behind by my grandmother when she passed last year. I'm planning to sell them on Etsy.

I've also been volunteering at the local library and reading lots and lots. I challenged myself to read 52 books in 2013 for the Goodreads reading challenge. I'm doing well so far. Been reading a lot of Jim Butcher, Jonathan Kellerman, and Naomi Novik.
