Let me share Mari O’Dell’s holiday greeting that reminds us all to remember that: ..
If your blessing is wealth, share it. If your blessing is health, take care of it. If your blessings are people, love them. This season we see more clearly now we’re blessed by giving and receiving. We know deep down what matters most is family and friends.

Don’t be fooled by this little quilt-like image of Heather Campbell’s mixed media assemblage that includes much sculpted polymer. You must envision it full-sized – a 4-foot square!
And be sure to look at Heather’s in-process photos like the one below to get a better idea of the size and complexity of the piece.
The heavily encrusted circles and spirals join into one piece called Keep Circling. This story speaks about the need to, “Keep searching for that space and place that gives you meaning and purpose. You are the only one that can recognize and identify your center as home.” she explains.
Heather says that, “All my assemblage pieces have a story, and it’s so much more fulfilling to me to work on something with parts and pieces, and problem solving.”
Heather refers to her style as Bohemian Nouveau, combining the free spirited characteristics of the Bohemian lifestyle with the decorative motifs of the Art Nouveau movement. Learn much more on her sites on Pinterest, Artful Home and Artists of Utah.
North Carolina’s Patti Bannister considers herself a painter but when a tactile mood hits her she returns to polymer…and cats.
These mosaic pieces will make their way as jewelry on her Etsy site. See Patti’s whole range of work on Flickr. Patti’s example makes us appreciate our accommodating medium that allows us to stay flexible and switch gears whenever the mood strikes or the situation changes.
On the road again
We’re back on the road heading to family for Thanksgiving. Still itching from poison oak but happy to be driving east.
