How the World seems to have changed since the last time I wrote on these pages….

Sometimes one must retreat, cocoon and rest.

Spring is here and this butterfly has morphed.

I feel like so many layers have been shed this winter… I have some stories, some wild and crazy stories, some that I will one day share, just not today.

Today I want to talk about a simple yet profound concept

that seems to be at risk these days.

Being Human.

Yes, we are simply human.

We need air, water, food and shelter to live, but we need love, community, support and healing in order to thrive.

We need each other. More than ever these days.

Social media seems to excite yet isolate us more and more…. external 3 dimensional pressures, working, paying bills, listening or not listening to the news…..

this all weighs in.

I feel it folks. Do you?

What can we do, what can we empower ourselves with?

We can connect with each other, support each other, we can cry, be vulnerable, be seen and most importantly we can love.

We can embrace our imperfections,

touch those hard to reach and painful places within our souls

screaming out to be heard.

We can hold space for one another.

Not just humans, but winged beings, finned beings, water beings, tree beings, plant beings and fured beings. We are just another one of the earth’s majestic creatures and we can let our light shine bright. Make it count.

For me, this means being present. Fully present in my surroundings and especially with my family. This means floating in and out of this cyber space we have grown so comfortable with. This means, walking in the woods, understanding that we are all connected. Understanding that what we do and say to others, we do and say to ourselves.

I am really just beginning to fully understand it’s impact.

I am humbled. I give thanks each and every day.


Let yourself be seen. Try it.

Let yourself be heard. Be brave. Say what you feel and don’t shy away.

It’s time.

There is no more space left in this world for anything else.

Soon, I will be launching a whole new line of work. A deep and meaningful collection of pieces that speak loudly to what my soul has to share. I want you to know that we need each other, we need this earth and we need to embrace this NOW.


Our kids need this.

Let us rejoice everyday, even if it’s for one single piece of beauty we have seen, heard, smelt, felt, touched or tasted.


We must shift our view and see the gifts in the everyday. Trust me, I know this can be a struggle, God knows, but Love, Gratitude and Humility can be truly Transforming.

Until next time, be well and Be Human.

no apologies.

in Love

Dearest Snow Flakes,
Yes, Winter is here….. and some would say that I am crazy with all that I am about to share….
I like to keep busy as most of you know… Although I am trying to connect to the “being” in human being instead of the “doing” that seems to be the norm these days…. especially at this time of year!

As usual I have so much to share, I will have to do it in a few posts…. I have some feasts for the eyes and soul this time….

And a personal legacy.
I would like to share with you first and foremost my second greatest creation:
We welcomed our son, baby Rio at home peacefully and full of LOVE on October 26th 2014

All I can really say is that it was an amazing empowering experience and he is pure magic and joy….


He is my bundle of LOVE


I am ready to share him with the world now. LOL

Before Rio was born, I managed to create many pieces of stone and crystal beauty which I will share with you next post, however I also wanted to share my favourite photographer who we have been working with professionally and personally for almost 10 years… Her work is outstanding…. as you can see above and below.

Christine Hailstone of Lifestone Photography

if you like what you see, you can call or e-mail her for a shoot!!! 647-270-6509  hailstonephoto@hotmail.com

She managed to catch a few glimpses of me in my pregnant glory just one week before Rio’s birth…





A Father's love

Now As a mama of two, life doesn’t look like this anymore….. I am in total LOVE, but I am also Exhausted… I seemed to have forgotten about late night nursing, or I should say nursing around the clock….

There is something completely satisfying about giving another life everything they can possibly need….

We humans are amazing creatures.

Fern is doing well, and loves her little brother….


This brings me to another piece of BIG news bringing some BIG change in our lives…..

We are moving!!!

Up North

In the Winter!

I did mention that I would sound CRAZY!!!

But in all honesty, we are so excited….

Meaford will be our new home. We will be living on the Escarpment, in the woods, steps from the turquoise waters of Georgian Bay….. A dream come true.


This will be our new home and eventually home of Opal Wing Creations….

I will be keeping the studio in Glen Williams for now, to ease transition, however the garage will slowly be renovated into my woodland studio.

The studio in Glen Williams will still in open, so please come by…. There are some LOVELY pieces created in this wonderful time of creative courage….

Change isn’t always easy, and although everything looks just dreamy and pure magic (which it is)

there is much emotion, fear and work behind it all…. I mean who would post photos of a mama in the last phases of transition in labour??? ¬†So sharing the fruits of labour seems to be where its at in the meantime….

Stay tuned for some lovely pieces of labradorite, opal, variscite, ammonite and many beauty stone beauties….
