The inspiration was the word “threshold.” The deliberate act of crossing from one place into another. A door, a doorway, a beginning.
But brick by brick, it took on deeper symbolism. Another door opens … into what?
We open the doors, we peek out, we step through. But until that moment, we never really know what’s out there.

While making snow globes, one often has to accept that not everything is possible. On the other hand, sometimes the unexpected happens. Many shimmering glitters and dusts do NOT behave in liquid. They disappear. They fade. They leach color into the liquid. But once in a while … oh! a sparkle holds it own and keeps every promise it makes. “Teal Me Again” is a tribute to the color that will not quit. It dances, it prances, it whistles a tune: It does not tint the liquid. It does not become invisible. It simply makes one smile. Again and again. Teal Me. Again.
