Happy Tuesday!

Many thanks to all of you who reached out after my last email.  It's so good to see your familiar "faces" in my inbox!  For so many years (more than we'd like to admit!) so many of you have been faithful friends to Dave and I.

And to answer your questions, yes, the past eight years have been a rough patch!  I wasn't prepared for the aftereffects of cancer treatment and naively thought I would bounce back immediately after chemo, surgery & radiation.  But the side effects of prevention meds are a whole other nasty can of worms.  And the seemingly endless biopsy scares always knocked my "I'm well" confidence back to  a new low.  But the upside of ALL of that is that I am STILL HERE, STILL CANCER FREE and finally seem to recently regained the lost parts of  myself. So, thanks for your prayers, well wishes and concern.  

MOVING ON!  We've been working hard to restore the "OOMPH" to Zuni Spirits and there are lots of good things coming up.  In the last week or so we've added a variety of carvings to the site and here are just a few images of what's new @ Zunispirits.com .

In other news, I recently entered three pieces in a juried show and all three were accepted!  So Dave and I will be heading out west in October for the WesternTrappings show on the Llano river.  Here are my entries:
Siwolo, Embellished Buffalo Skull
High Hopes, Oil

Clancy's Pride, Watercolor
(Sorry about the reflection!)

Thanks for taking the time to read this .. and thanks for your continued support of Zunispirits.com.  If you haven't stopped by in a while, please do!

All best wishes!

Greetings from Zunispirits!

It's been a long, long time since you've heard from me (Darlene), but I wanted to let you know that after eight years and lots of ups and downs, I am back at work at Zunispirits.com.

I will continue to pursue my painting, but will devote a portion of each day to promoting the artisans of Zuni and perpetuating the love of Zuni fetish carvings here on Zunispirits.com.

Dave will continue to be responsible for photography, ordering, communication, invoicing and shipping.  I will be doing all the website updates and social media.  Hardly a full plate, but with my other passions, something I should be able to maintain, even with my "new normal".

We will continue to offer site update notices here, but the majority of our posting will be on our Facebook page, Pinterest and on Instagram.  So we hope that you'll like/follow us on those venues.

We did a small update to site last week and I will have another, small but potent offering ready next week.  Ricky Laahty, Thelma & Aaron Sheche, Lena Boone, Maxx Laate, Herbert Him and Milton Honawa among them.

Dave and I are grateful for all of you who hung in there with us when our priorities were so far from the business at hand.  Cancer was definitely a life changer .. but not always in a bad way.  We now know that we're tougher than we imagined and have been gifted with faithful friends who truly care.

All best wishes,


Dave & Darlene
