Yet another flower where I just kind of winged it. It will be interesting to see how all these come together in my next flower crown. This one is the largest I’ve made so far, its slightly smaller than my hand.
Spent the evening cutting out dragons and scoring card for gatefold cards. Very boring. Also very frustrating as my cricut blade is blunt & I stupidly don’t have one left. Ate some black pepper pistachios which were rather yummy. “Head’s
Like I’ve said in the last post the Spring wants to show her face here in my city and I am more than pleases. Smelling the fresh air I just felt to do this brooch for hurry up the flower
I made 2 modular origami polyhedra today using sonobe units. The large one is purely ornamental, but the small one is going to be filled with lavender, and become an origami drawer freshener.
Buy someone a nice sweater or teach them how to dance. Document. Report back. #dayin #dailyin
A very simple TaD for day 23. Nice easy instructions, a pre-printed piece of paper a little bit of folding and hey-presto…. a paper aeroplane. I must try harder tomorrow. My music for today is ‘Come Softly to Me’ by
I realised I haven’t lit the forge since Saturday so I just had to. As part of my program to learn how to forge a knife as accurately as possible, this little piece of steel, lighty ground just to show
Every day I am going to throw an object up in the air ten times. I am going to film myself doing it and select ten frames where the object is covering my face and make an animated gif.

Cross stitched two dancers for the cover of my daughter’s dance recital picture scrapbook (insides were posted 2.18.2012).
Another day is done and so are some of the things I wanted to do. I made another batch of banana nut crumb muffins. This time I froze half of them. They turned out scrumptious. I also finished the bread
Whew! I got a call at 9:30 last night from the organizer of a show I’d been waitlisted for. They had had a last minute cancellation and were offering me the space. The show is tomorrow and Saturday! GAH! I

I think I missed a post somewhere along the way, why I post tad 22 on 23 feb? I am a little confused … :) So today I will be forced to post twice. hihihi
And finally, baby Jesus. Each piece seems to be harder to make than the one before. I’m learning, though–hopefully the final pieces will be much better.
Oh, yes. More naalbinding. A girl has two feet, you see, so we need two socks. :p
Tonight was metal clay jewelry class. Awesome fun. My moonsnail silicone mold homework rocked! What do you think? I used bronze clay for it. We also filed, drilled holes, cleaned our air dried copper pieces. All will be kiln fired
I found this lady in an old National geographic magazine from the sixties a while ago, and had my eyes on her. She has an awesome style, and a confident air about her that i just love. So i’ve been
Went to a show last night so didn’t have time to post. Yesterday I only had enough time to do a half hour or so of cross stitching. Today I did another couple hours of cross stitching, as well as
