Day 25 – Jolly good show

I must say it feels good to kick off the 2012 show season with a successful one, especially after last year, which began with three successive shows where I sold zip, nada, nothing. Very depressing, that is. Anyhoo, I got

Chocolate Kidney Bean Brownies!

No picture – oops! But this evening I made chocolate and kidney bean brownies. They kidney beans are pureed, and used in place of butter, with a little oil added. The end result was surprisingly delicious and un-kidney bean-y. Which

Stool 25/29

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.

One possible explanation

On the morning after that dark and stormy night, when the bright morning light gave away no hint of the terrible terribleness of the preceding hours, Jack and the Twigley brothers set about taking stock of the situation. The very

Day 25: My spring tote

Oh boy, I finally managed to finish the tote I started working on yesterday. It was really fun, I learned a lot, but it sure was a lot of work. :) My tote has a U-shape, an interior pocket divided

Day 25: Lemon Biscuits

Possibilities create more possibilities.

Thing-a-Day always makes me remember – and be amazed by – how just one possibility, one idea, creates the space for so many more.  I never end February anywhere near where I thought I would, new ideas always come that

Day 25: Upcycled pillow from old shirt

Possibly the simplest pillow cover to make. This is recovering an old pillow that has gotten a little threadbare. The button front of the shirt makes it easy to remove & replace.

Day 24: Parrot Perch Prototype

Tonight I had already gotten into bed before I remembered that I hadn’t yet done anything for Thing-a-Day. I convinced myself to get up again, but it was a close call. A friend of mine is making an elaborate perch

Day 24: Productive day

I’ve been on a cleaning kick lately for some reason and that fits well with Thing-a-Day. What I’ve most enjoyed about Thing-a-Day is to actually create those things that I’ve pinned on Pinterest.  The project makes me evaluate the possessions
