An Artiste, Am I

I don't profess to be the next trendsetter in Altered Art or Rescued Jewelry Creations but I do make and sell quite a few things month to month in a little store downtown called Margie Pepper's. I love this place. I love it a lot. I love it so much, most of my paycheck from the art I sell goes right back into my friend, Michelle's, hand the second I get it. She owns the place and gave me my start in selling art. I had been selling on eBay but there is something so surreal about knowing at any given moment I could walk into someone's home or pass someone on the street and they could be displaying a piece of my art or jewelry that they paid good money for. I have taken a few pictures of some of my creations for your enjoyment. See something you're interested in, not that I meant for this to be a sales blog, but still...let me know.

They are all lovely. I stopped into Margie Peppers the other day looking for a webkinz for Aspen. We were in a hurry so I couldn't browse but I will be back. Oh yes, I will be back.

Wow, do you have a shop in Salt Lake? I love looking at these kinds of things but rarely get to due to the offspring. Sigh... Beautiful stuff!

Hi my name is Jennifer and I'm a friend of Steph Gibson...I also use to work for Dr. Claypool. Anyways, I love the mini-scrapbook keychain and the enchanted songbird.

Hey Jonathan:  I haven't read all of your wife's "musings" but from what I can tell, you have been blessed with a wonderful family.  A man can be dirt poor but if he has a family he is the richest man in the world.  Mrs. Mason:  I'm sorry for taking so much of your husband time playing Call for Duty! :-)  Kevin and Debbie Manley Pacifica CA.  Email:
