Back at it.

It's that time of year again, Winter. Which means I twiddle my thumbs more and make more art! This winter in particular is unique in that I am currently inhabiting a tiny town of just over 400 people in the beautiful, Central Oregon. My town is located on a small part of the Deschutes canyon...stunning. In the summer, this town is crawling with rafters and fly-fisherman as they invade the tiny town because of it's mighty river flowing through town. But come fall, they all leave to search for better, warmer waters. And with my husband working during the day, my dog Trask and I are left to explore the mighty canyon, the high river and my art space by ourselves.

Our adventures, creations and (like the above), photos of ourselves will be found on this blog. (Trask is on the couch not being very adventurous at the moment).

Mykiss Love Desert Style

Time-Based Jewelry:

Thank you so much for taking beautiful photos, Amy Wennerlind, your the best! And thank you sister Sarah, owner of the Green Dandelion Floral Design, for providing stunning bouquets!

Okay friends!

I have posted new earrings on my Etsy!!! Don't forget, if you like my FACEBOOK page, you will receive 15% off a pair of earrings! Just remind me when you order. Stay tuned for a Mykiss Love GIVE-AWAY coming in June!

Time-Based Jewelry- These are one of a kind earrings that are special and unique, take a chance, wear something different! The concept is fleeting, literally, these earrings are not made to last forever.  They are made with real flower parts or other natural parts of the earth. The idea is that the beauty of nature is incomparable and cannot be replicated so why try? Taking them from the earth gives them a short life span, making their beauty rare and intangible. But, displaying them on your ears will provide lasting memories and compliments. Their beauty is amplified in their fleeting life span. These earrings are for a very special night! They are used for weddings, either for the bride or an attendee, a special dance or an unforgettable date! You will be the only one in the room with these and they will single you out as a fun, beautiful and special person.

When you purchase these earrings you are supporting an eco-friendly shop! My time-based earrings do not hurt the earth or fill up the landfills. They are easy to compost or will decompose quickly when brought back to the earth. If you save the hardware I will provide the postage to mail the hardware back to me, if done, you will receive 15% off your next pair of earrings! Reuse Recycle Reduce, go go captain planet!
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
Note: Some flowers are seasonal.

Some of the Time-Based jewelry will last years and years if given the proper care. These earrings are still best worn on special outings, answering a phone often or being too active can shorten the life span of these as they are delicate pieces of nature. Here are some of those natural pieces: (Purchase from my Etsy store or E-mail me)

Happy MAY DAY!!!!!!

Today I got to spend some time with my wonderful friend Sara Harris, creator of Blossoms N Blossoms, she has some AMAZING hair pieces!!! Be sure to check them out!

I love May Day! When I was little my mom and my siblings would go around our neighborhood in New Mexico and place baskets full of goodies on people's doorstep, ring their bells and run away! Sometimes we would hide in a bush or around the corner so we could see their faces as they opened the door to our May Day surprise! Why don't we do that anymore? I'm not sure, but I think I will start the tradition again with my husband. In honor of the May Day surprise here are some Pinterest May Day Inspirations!

Flowers left on your doorstep!!!! What a way to make someone smile!

The good ole May Pole!

So cute, flowers and a burlap sack!

This weekend I am having another Photo Shoot with my good and talented friend Amy Wennerlind. Here is a sneak peak of my process and what I have been working on!

My oh so organized mess. It gets messier as each day passes.

Working away.

Sneak Peek of some of the earrings...sshhhh. 

Yup. Leather leather leather! 

Yes, I even got my hair colored because I needed some red to contrast with some of my green earrings. That's dedication folks. Carly from CC Evans in Bend was the hair artist. She's great!


My best friend Joy is having a baby! Here are some photos from the shower that myself and two other friends threw for her. 

Making her banners!

Welcome Baby Bozzo

People got to write Joy or her Baby girl a note, which will then be made into a small book for them to read as the baby gets older.

I made her a really cute baby sling!

This photo was my inspiration, found it on Pinterest. 

Fit her perfectly. CUSTOM ORDER ONE HERE(email)!

Flowers my mom helped arrange.

Yup, there she is! So beautiful. Due: May 20th.
