Thing 27

For Thing 27, I made some mosaic pendants using freshwater pearls, shells, vintage Czech seed beads and sand. I love making these pendants! I also am working on the idea of using a shell as a frame and have included

It has been such a beautiful day today, with clear blue sky and not a breath of breeze so even though the temperature was quite cool, in the sunshine it was really very pleasant indeed.  This was something that did not escape

Trying to stay positive

I’ll try to keep this brief. The good news was that I found the button I lost. The bad news is that somehow I’ve managed to lose the silver bead I made with it. I can’t say how upset that

These days I’m all about embellishing and adding new touches to some of my clothes – let’s call it the spring itch! :) Yesterday I started working on pretty organza flowers and today I managed to sew them onto a

Petunia, naturally. (Needle felting is not the most stimulating activity until you get the thrill of stabbing yourself in the finger with very sharp pointy needle.)

Day Twenty-Six…

I couldn’t decide, so I went with a polar bear and a penguin.  I did a google image search for penguins.  Oh my word!  Baby penguins are just the cutest things!!  I’ve been thinking about the next three days.  Suggestions

Thing-a-Day 26: Origami Tulip

This is made up of two simple pieces of origami slotted together. The flower is based on the origami water bomb and I had a couple of goes, until I was happy with the outcome. I only had one sheet

Day 26: Cat toy

Moxie keeps trying to eat my monsters that I make, so I made her her own toy out of some cheap yarn. It’s stuffed with pollyfill and catnip. She seems to like it well enough, although I doubt it’ll stop

Day 26 – Quick & Dirty Illustrator

Considering, for some reason, I am too tired to create anything worth any real heart, I decided to do something quick and dirty. Took me approximately 20 min. Should have been quicker, but what are you going to do.

Day 26 – Origami Turtles!

I got this wonderful paper in the assortment of paper I got the other day. It’s specifically designed for this turtle model, though it works for other things that have a center to show off.

TAD 2/26 – Pendant

Tried Mod Podge Dimensional Magic.  There’s a few things I’d do differently if I try this again though.  Not thrilled with the results.  Mainly because of my impatient nature though.  Should have tested it out before I went crazy and

Day 26: Happy Monster Doodle

The power just went out for a couple of seconds, so I’ve whipped up this doodle of a monster quickly, because if the power went out again, I probably wouldn’t  able to get a thing up for today.

TAD 2/24 – Name Pens

I have always loved Pentel RSVP pens because you can easily print out something custom, roll it up, and slide it into the back of the pen to make it unique.  3.21″ x 1.25″ is a good measurement for the

Heritage Cooking 27: Anadama Bread

The story goes that a New England fisherman had a very lazy wife and had to cook for himself and when he made this bread he called it “Anna, damn her!” The texture is interesting as it has cooked corn meal in it. I adjusted the

You can tell what kind of house I live in that I first looked for our food coloring in my husband’s workshop, then in the garage, then in the kitchen.  I finally found it in a box of dry walling
