Walking on the Moon

I've been working in the studio quite a bit lately so I it was a pleasant break from routine to ha ve my Florida relatives up for a visit this weekend. We walked around Purdue University in the unusually warm Fall and took in the colorful trees and red bricks of the university.

We stopped to check out the new Neil Armstrong building and I took a few pictures. It's an interesting building in it's angular design. It was also fun to see the astronaut moon boot footprints that decorate the lawn around the building.

It was so refreshing to take some time out to enjoy the Fall and visit with relatives. Now I feel rejuvinated and ready to tackle some more jewelry. I need to make many more pieces for the One of a Kind show this December. I am excited about the new direction I am taking with my jewelry and I want to make a number of new pieces for this show.

Sometimes just getting out of the studio and shaking off the cobwebs can help to inspire creativity. Hopefully everyone will get a chance to get out and enjoy this beautiful Fall weather.
