Thank you for visiting my new blog.  I also intermittently post at camoandpearls, but that blog is a far bit more personal.  Here, I’ll talk about art work that I’m posting in my etsy shop.  I might share information on a process I used, or a story about what inspires me.

You can look at pictures on my flickr account: a few of the most recent items will appear to the right…

Follow me on twitter if that’s your thing @thingsofnature.

All the best, Rebecca
