Please forgive the less-than-stellar photography on these – I plan to spend some time making them look pretty in pictures after I’ve drilled the holes and strung them on cords. I don’t know how long that will take and I didn’t want to wait to post these! So this first image is of the pendant […]Read More: Eye candy
Having a great time. Wish you were here. Today we learned to construct Japanese inro pendants, and to decorate them with image transfers, stamps, pigment inks and the ever-important gold leaf. This is my pendant in-progress. It still needs the domed top to be added, and it could use some sanding/buffing. I’m impressed with how […]Read More: Post Card
Well, would you look at that? It’s Friday already! I’m not sure how that happened, but it did, and as a result, I have traded in my trusty spot on the family room couch for a soft, fluffy bed in the Hampton Inn. We drove south tonight, my family and I, so that tomorrow […]Read More: Friday flickr favorites, live from Philly
Note to self: When taking a picture of things on the coffee table, consider washing the fingerprints and sticky spots off of the glass first… I’m always happy to see some of my older work find a home. I just packed up these six Long Heart Pendants today and will be sending them away with […]Read More: Donna Kato keeps making me do things
I am completely incapable of having one of anything, wardrobe-wise. If I find something I like, I need to have it in several colors. This was true of me when I was a teenager and buying GAP pocket tees, it was true of me a few years ago when I was all about the […]Read More: Oops, I did it again
Mmmmmm. Colors. The image above is of tiles I made to show the different cane designs I’ve made in my Swamp color scheme. This particular combination of colors came to me as I was driving through the Great Swamp in late spring a few years ago – the sky, the bark on the trees, and […]Read More: Color junkies and the websites who love them
I don’t remember if I posted about this before, but last Thursday was Aidan’s first day of school, and I decided it was also my first day of the new Fall routine. And I did great. I got up, took a shower, started a load of laundry, got the kids fed, walked Aidan to the […]Read More: Routines and sticking to them
I’ve been seeing comments lately from readers who say they look forward to reading my posts as they sip their morning tea… that’s so very sweet! But now, knowing that I have a legion of fans counting on me, I can’t go to bed without saying something entertaining, can I? (Perhaps “legion” is a bit […]Read More: Good Morning, Sunshine!
We spent this afternoon at our neighborhood’s annual block party. It was a nice time, but it was hot & sticky. We wimped out and left a little early so we could come home, eat a junk finger food supper, watch an episode of Due South and play Rummikub. Dancin Jules tagged me the other […]Read More: Tag, you’re it!
Oh, green, how I love thee. Green makes me happy You know what else apparently makes me happy this week? Pictures of feet on busy-patterned tiled flooring. It’s funny I should have two images like that in my favorites. Speaking of my favorites, I found a nifty screen saver today at Wackylabs.net. You can configure […]Read More: Flickr, Firsts, and Fun
