Thank you for your email. Please understand if it takes a few to get back to you. 



I am UmberDove.

And by that, I mean an artist.  One who hears stories in the wind, who paints because it is what her soul tells her to do, who smiths because the muse moves through her fingertips, who loves nothing more than the promise of an unexplored trail, the sound of the ocean in her ears, and scent of a serious cup of coffee.


Drumroll Please...

Should you ever embark upon a giveaway of your own, I highly recommend  inviting the participants to share some sort of goodness.  Reading through your entries - and yes, I read through and sit with every single one - was such a source of joy to me.  Like little hits of sunshine peppering the side of your face, or whispers of beauty fluttering through your mane.  Plus, I now have a rich list of books on my to-read list to last me into the winter.  As ever, all of this is to say thank you.  Thank you to every single one of you who took the time to read my words, view my images, write out comments, share in the world.  Thank you.  From the whole of my heart.**


But for now, it IS Tuesday morning, I HAVE had my coffee, and we DO have a winner!  


Stephanie Moix, you gorgeous goddess you, I can't wait to work some silver in your name!   

 Again, my heart is full with gratitude: Thank you, thank you, y'all know how to make my days. 

- U

** (and to those for whom the website was acting up, and let me know via email or facebook, know that I added your names to the great bowl of papers!  Thank you for your patience as I work out the kinks with squarespace!)
