TWiP: Winter is back.

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for Project 365 (the theme for 2017 is “words”), plus some snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week.

Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…

Saturday

Instagram πŸ“±: I was up until nearly 4am thinking about polymer things I wanted to make, so I figured I’d better unpack my Clayathon supplies and set up my work table, if I ever want to get a good night’s sleep again πŸ˜‰

Instagram πŸ“±: I’m not really a bead maker, but I’ve got this chunky necklace I need to get out of my brain and onto a string. Before I can assemble it, though, I need to figure out how to sand and buff a few dozen round beads without losing my mind…

365 πŸ“·: 2017 63/365 – Giraffemoji – The kids are out of the house for the night, so, party animals that we are, we’ve got a fire in the fireplace and a pregnant giraffe webcam on the TV.

Sunday

Instagram πŸ“±: Opinions please: the beads are not arranged symmetrically by design, but both of the people who saw me wearing it thought the asymmetry was accidental (like the bright bead at the bottom was meant to be exactly in the center [it’s not]). Do you think I should rearrange the beads to make the asymmetry more pronounced?

365 πŸ“·: 2017 64/365 – Happy Birthday – We celebrated my Mom and my Aunt’s birthdays with a nice family party β™₯ [Taken at my parents’ house.]

Monday

365 πŸ“±: 2017 65/365 – Thumb tacks – I tried my hand at polymer clay covered thumb tacks this weekend, and I really like them! Today they took their rightful place in my cubicle. [Taken at work.]

Tuesday

365 πŸ“±: 2017 66/365 – 90’s Spring – I’m tired of my Winter playlists. Switching over to an mp3 cd comprised of the songs that were on some old mix tapes I made in Spring months between 1993 and 1997. [Taken in the car.]

Wednesday

365 πŸ“·: 2017 67/365 – Jingmei – I have been trying to find the perfect duo-tone watch band for my smartwatch since I got it for Christmas. The first one I got was actually only silver. The second one was perfect until I dropped the watch and the band broke. This is the third, and it has taken more than a month to get here by mail. I hope I love it as much as the second one! I have to remove at least four links first, though. I have small wrists.

Thursday

365 πŸ“±: 2017 68/365 – Nokchawon – It’s two Asian words in a row this week! I don’t know if Nokchawon is a brand name, or the name of this type of tea, but it’s really good stuff. It’s buckwheat tea! I didn’t even know that existed until recently. I was skeptical when I tried it, but it’s actually quite good. [Taken at work.]

Friday

365 πŸ“±: 2017 69/365 – hello, snow – If I’m going to keep doing this post-it on a window thing, I’m going to need to invest in some other colors. The yellow is getting boring. It snowed another 2 inches or so after I took this picture this morning. [Taken at work.]

Instagram πŸ“±: New snow is always so pretty on the bare trees. I’m hoping the commute back home is also pretty tonight ❄ It could so easily be a slushy mess! [Taken at work.]

Thanks for taking a peek at this week’s photos! If you want to see this stuff as it happens, please feel free to follow me on FlickrΒ and/or Instagram.

I may already have plans to blog about some of these things in greater detail over the coming week, but be sure to leave a comment if there’s something in particular you want to know about!
