TWiP: Close to Home

This Week in Pictures, Week 33, 2021

Unlike Week 33s past, the 2021 Week 33 did not involve any beachy day trips, weekend getaways, or intercontinental travel. I barely left the house. On the plus side, I did manage to procure a bouquet of zinnias, which inspired some photo play and kept me plenty entertained.

TWiP: Window Box Chicken

This Week in Pictures, Week 31, 2021

I don’t know how the time manages to pass so quickly, but it always does. It’s August already.

TWiP: Instant Gratification

This Week in Pictures, Week 30, 2021

It’s been a little over two years since I bought my first instant camera, and in that time, I’ve taken a few photos that I love, and a whole lot of photos that are kind of terrible.

Did you know that there is a wiki out there for crafting techniques? It’s called Craftacular and is relatively new, and as I was checking it out over my (early) lunch, I noticed that they were looking for people to start a polymer clay section. If anyone here is up for the challenge, here’s the link.

It occurs to me that Diane Black’s indispensable Glass Attic has tremendous wiki potential, if someone knew how to run the whole thing through a routine that would re-code it in that way. I seem to recall that Diane was no longer maintaining the site – is that right? if I’m misremembering, somebody please correct me. It’s something I thought I’d heard last year.

If you are unfamiliar with the concept of a wiki, check this handy primer. And then go write Craftacular’s first Polymer Clay entry!
