Deadbeat Blogger :)

I would like to pretend that I was injured by a crazed wombat, or maybe abducted by aliens, but in actuality, I have been a total slacker! ... I have come back outta hybernation, and will try to do better :) I am going back into production this weekend with GIANT THANKS to alittlebarofsoap supplies!!!!

In the meantime, feast your eyes on my constant companion (well, when I am HOME, that is!), Ms. Flava!!!

.:: Seryna's Creations ::.

First, you must imagine a time when things were genteel and very, very proper :)

That is what Seryna's Creations is all about...but, wait! here's the spin...

The unbelievable silk ribbon embroidered items are elegant in a victorian theme, yet very contemporary in the color themes and items that she creates so expertly!

Jeweled creations are yet another wonderful surprise! I am sure that you will be visiting her Etsy store again and again, as her creations are irresistable!!!

.:: ArtisticDetour ::.

...one of my mostest favoritest Etsians!

Below is their Etsy profile ( which i copied verbatim!)  ---
it is a wonderful description of two wonderfully balanced and gifted artisans...

"We are a husband and wife team. Robin is the creative force behind our endeavor. She has many years of arts and crafts experience; she began at a very young age sewing, crafting, making jewelry and moving on to ceramics including custom hand painted kiln fired tile work with a sister. She has a unique eye for the abstract beauty found in many mediums. I, John, am along for the ride. My contribution is the written word describing her art the best I can, I share her vision of the art.

I also bake, yes I am a Danish baker classically trained by my father. I hope to offer my products at some future date here on Etsy.
Robin is from Southern California I am from the Northern part, who says a mixed marriage doesn’t work? We have lived many places, from Hawaii to Colorado to Massachusetts and all the way to Thailand and Denmark.

But now we found the end of the rainbow here on our Island. We have 5 children between us, who all have their own artistic detour ahead.

Robin works for a major airline, and I for a aerospace company. Although we have our head in the clouds at work, we get down to earth for our natural and organic designs.

When we open the kiln we eagerly await with child like anticipation of what awaits us. Will it be like we hoped, or something that totally surprises us. You never know. That is what keeps it fun. The pleasant surprises.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and visiting our store. Any questions or comments please convo us.

All poetry by John inspired by Robins work.

Robin and John

The “Artistic Detour” duo."
