i’m working on lots of new designs. pretty darned excited about them!
after 10 yrs., i still get completely blissed out in the development process.

seeing two dimensional art become three dimensional is just downright fun.

table setting: plastic wrapped dishes (that you still end up rinsing in boiling hot water), ashtray (ugh, so many smokers here in China!), toothpicks, tissues (instead of napkins. always) and peanuts (quite common appetizer).

fish_soup_china_food_travel
fish soup.

i love the farmland here. small areas with lots of different crops, sustaining the areas nearby.

high_speed_train_china_travel
something new to me on this trip- riding a high speed train. 200 MPH!!!
a little nerve-wracking. glad i’m still here to write about it. 🙂

more china travels tomorrow. xoxo-m

  1. Wow! Time sure flies when you’re having fun! Great shots! I am afraid I would be fasting on that trip! LOL! I am not a fan of seafood or fish. I will only eat salmon & that has taken years!

    It is so cool to see your pieces come alive! Have a great trip & keep posting your wonderful pics! xo 🙂

  2. Uhh, great! Since my son has a Chinese girl-friend (met in Iceland :D) China is getting nearer for a travel. I’m looking forward to seeing your pics and reading your news. Karin
