Almost time…

Less than 2 hours left in the color scheme contest, and there’s a flurry of activity over here. I’m trying to get the things I’ve made photographed and ready for the website.  The contest ends at midnight, and while I’m not crazy enough to post the results at 12:01am, I do want to take care […]

It’s practically Friday

So I’m jumping the gun and posting my flickr favorites for the week. Actually, this is two weeks of favorites, since I forgot last week. Lots of pretty jewelry this time, and no shortage of feet. As usual. And yet, I always wear plain black shoes myself. Go figure. Those of you still playing along […]

More fun than a jar full of pens

I love making pens. I love putting coordinating pens in a mason jar. I love it when I have even more than six coordinating pens in a mason jar. Maybe I’ll make more pens this week Am I being a tease with all of this stuff?  All of these in-progress shots?  I hope you’re not […]

I’ve tried to start this post 5 times, but I can’t seem to form a coherent sentence. I know I shouldn’t be trying to write in front of the tv, but who thought that Between the Lions could be such a distraction? So far today I’ve learned about the letter H, the three little pigs, […]

It’s a sickness, I tell you.

  Can’t say I’m afraid of the camera now, can we? I’m a pretty shy girl in public, but if there’s one thing I’ve learned since opening my flickr account, it’s that it’s fun to take my own picture. It’s bringing out the ham in me, and I never realized that she existed before. Kind […]
