“ Well Baby Girl a new day is dawning. I wish you all the happiness in the world. And most of all—I wish you happiness, contentment and continued growth. You deserve it. As we all do. But for sure I wish happiness for you and Eric and Macy. Sometimes we need to stand still to hear the birds sing. ”
Congrats to Patricia Michaels who will be on Season 11 of Project Runway!

Thank you to SWAIA for their gift of a Pendelton. It is the Maria Martinez special addition and I am so very glad to have it. I joined SWAIA at Tomasita’s in December for their luncheon and am honored that they thought of me to include me and to present me with such a touching gift. I am honored to serve as the Youth Outreach Coordinator and am thankful for all of the artists and youth that are apart of the program.
You can’t buy SWAIA’s because they are all out. But you can buy the AICF’s pictured above Buy it here
Happy New Year! We are blessed and thankful for all that have been apart of our lives, our families, and our friends. As my dad says “Keep on doing good work baby girl” so I hope in 2013 I can try harder, be better, love more completely, and do more. Eric and M are amazing people to spend my days with, and I am so grateful for each day. We rang in 2013 playing hangman with M and Gab in California. Total fun.
We just returned from California, for a post holiday getaway.
We had a great holiday at home, but it was good for us to be away too.
Macy had sea urchin, got her first taste and purchase from Tiffany’s, loved racing E up the hills in San Fran, and loved shopping.
Thorina and her family were such great hosts, and I was touched when E serenaded me to a song that his father had sung his mother fifty years ago. It was all very sweet.
Thanksgiving (I totally cooked my first turkey with E’s help!)&
Cocktails & Mocktails Party
Yes. Every holiday is occasion for a party.
My Mom: “M can’t be on the party circuit when she is sick”
M powered through, she is a trooper, and she really was over it.
Planning now begins for our Christmas Party! Winter Wonderland I believe is the theme.
SWAIA’s Winter Indian Market proved to be fun as always when you get a big group of talented people and amazing work around.
I had the honor of continuing the Youth Outreach and we did 1. Youth Demo’s 2. Youth Creation Station (kids made ornaments, cards, and pottery) 3. Youth Art Exhibit showcasing the work of our Native youth and the work they created with the Cherokee Artist Sallyann Paschall and Laguna Artist Marla Allison.
Thanks to my youth demonstrators: Macy Ridge, Hunter Wall, Isaiah, and Ross for demoing during Winter Market in Santa Fe on Thanksgiving weekend.

Thanks to my dear friend Sallyann for her opening up her studio to the Native Youth to show them how to make their own prints. They came out with some amazing work. M loves Sallyan’s cats: Wilma and Charlie. (and as I told Orlando Dugi- they would make some great shoes!)
Macy’s Annual Halloween Party
Held at Shellaberger Tennis Center with over 25 of her friends and fellow Youth Councilors! Thanks to Eric and Corey and Victor for all of their help.
M and I are party people. We love a good party. We love to throw them and seem to always have an event or party on our plates to prepare for. It’s our bonding time, and on the day of she knows the drill when edgiee is freaking out because we don’t have purple napkins She’ll say: “Go with it” . She’s AMAZING. Thank you M.
