Thing 6

Today I made another polymer clay pendant and some two holes beads perfect for a bracelet all with a nice textured finish. Hint of things to come, perhaps?

Loyalties

Melisandre didn’t think it would take much time, but even she was surprised by how quickly the twitchy little man appeared. “Call me Smith,” he said in response to her question. Neither one of them believed in that particular spot

Chenille Scarf

Day 6: Chenille Scarf

I completed another scarf I’ve been working on while riding Muni last night. It’s crocheted from chenille yarn, and was upcycled from a thrift store scarf I bought for a dollar. The original scarf looked like it was someone’s first

TAD 6: Focaccia

After the churros last night (and for breakfast this morning) I had a definite need to make something savoury and at least somewhat healthy. This focaccia used the basic recipe from crepesofwrath, though instead of the spice mix I topped

Charlie and I walked to the pet supply store in Hampden today. On the way we saw the 3 story tall pink flamingo outside of Cafe Hon and a truck with some cool graffiti. He’s worn out and is taking

Day 6: Heart shaped gift bags

For today I wanted to try something new – machine sewing paper. So I made these very cute paper bags, which are great for gift wrapping, especially for the up coming V-day. You can use them to offer something sweet

Dag 6 : Leeu

“The cat who rolled over” by the guy who thought the cat wouldn’t roll over. Worst sketch so far, the workshop cat on the office chair.

Day 6 I did a paisley cake of sorts.  It didn’t come out quite as I planned but the buttercream dots I added at the end seemed to help it. XD

TAD 2/5 – Peg board

Day 5 isn’t very crafty. But I got a stainless steel peg board hung and it will be covered in crafty tools eventually! It goes well with my gear clock I think.

This is an UnFinished Object from last year.  Two-color, felt coasters in two flower patterns with contrasting color stitching.  I got the pattern from the great Zakka Sewing book.  It is one of my favorite DIY books.

I used what I had–and apparently I’ve had this frame since my college days since it had a photo of an old friend in it– but could see this with a small ornate frame and some floral fabric.  The frame

This recipe for the wagon out on the range, calls for  molasses, and strong coffee so I was skeptical but it turned out really good! Easier than making a roux, I’d say this is not bad at all! I used

Day 5: Little Black Clouds

Another quick “shop the stash” hit today. When I first saw these gray shell teardrops, they reminded me of rain. I thought they’d look great as cascade-style earrings (you know, the kind that feature several teardrops or briolettes attached along

Snapped the original photo on my walk home. A metal lamp with bird shapes cut out to let the light shine through. Played around with some photoshop filters (something I usually don’t get to do too much). Liking the abstraction.
