Colette Evans' Profile

About

I love to create and have expressed that in different ways over time here on Etsy.

On Maui I created small driftwood furniture items and treasure hunted at the deserted pre-World War II dump site... gorgeous bottles with rainbow iridescence from oil and dirt!

After a stint in India and Mexico where it was too difficult to ship from, I've found myself in a crazy little town named (you'll love this) Truth or Consequences, New Mexico.

Wow, what a change from Maui, and yet I love it too! - the ocean is in the sky now. Named one of the coolest small town in the country, it's seems everyone here is an artist of some kind, even if it is an artist of space. Second hand shops line the street with every other store front some kind of gallery. It's not fancy, no New York here, but the down-home style is funky…

T or C, as the locals call it, was renamed in the 1950's from Hot Springs, which is what the town is known for. A famous radio show gave a dare to any small town that would rename themselves after the show, thus the town got it's name and the show was broadcast from here.

I live at an old refurbished spa in the heart of the historic district where my rent includes daily soaking in a Japanese style tub! I felt the creative juices start flowin' as soon as I got here - started designing t-shirts, got out my camera, and began treasure hunting again. -

I think the t-shirt is the only truly great American classic apparel item (besides cowboy boots, of course), and I want the line I am in the process of creating to be EXACTLY what it called, "That T-Shirt Women Are Always Looking For (TM)" - the right fit to flatter not just the figure, but the lifestyle we love. I am working up the full line for a kick-starter campaign and would love your input.

And you might find a ditty or two you like from the photographs which I offer when I am willing to part with it. Not sure if I am going to have time to do much beading! - I am a locational astrologer too, and writing a couple books - whew! - those waters are POWERFUL.

Email me if you have questions...
Blessing to you in all your endeavors...xoxo

PS: the two bumper sticker the town is known for are "Nirvana Manana" and my personal fav, "We're all here... cause we're not all there!"
