TWiP: The end of Elements and Earrings

This Week in Pictures, Week 35, 2022

It’s been a long month, LOL! Maybe two projects was too many, but I’m glad I did them. I’m ready to be done, and to be free to work on whatever I feel like working on (including nothing, if that’s how I feel)!

TWiP: Yet another batch of Elements and Earrings

This Week in Pictures, Week 34, 2022

I’m not sure what I was thinking, taking on two daily projects in August. They’re taking over my life 😆 Both the earring project and the photo project have been good for me in their own ways, but I think I will be quite ready to devote my energy to other things, once this month is over.

TWiP: Even More Elements and Earrings

This Week in Pictures, Week 33, 2022

My daily August creative projects continue: Earring of the Day, where I make a bunch of earrings in different styles than usual and add them to the shop, and Picture Elements, a photography prompt-based project I’m doing with Tracey Clark.

TWiP: Elements and Earrings

This week in Pictures, Week 31, 2022

So many people slow down in August, take some time off. Maybe I should have done that, too, but instead I decided I needed a creative project to shake up my polymer clay world a bit. So I came up with the Earring of the Day project, a great excuse to play with lots of different techniques.

Then, just for kicks, I signed up for a photography project. I am taking part in Picture Elements, which is a prompt-based photography class, which explores 7 visual elements of art: color, line, shape, form, value, texture, and space. Having never gotten any official art education, I think the exposure to these concepts will be valuable to me in more than just a photography capacity.

1 Second Everyday for 2021

1 Second Everyday for 2021

I decided to do this project when I came across a few videos from the first time I tried this, back in 2018. I only managed 3 non-consecutive months with that project, but those little films contained clips with my dad, his brother, a great-uncle, and a cat, all of whom are no longer with us. It made me realize that even though I have a huge library of photographs of the people I love, there’s something extra special about moving pictures.

TWiP: Polymer Inspired

This Week in Pictures, Week 50, 2021

I wrapped up my ornament-making season this week, and then whipped up a few jewelry pieces, because I was surprisingly still in the mood. That’s not great news for my dining room table, but it’s good news for anyone who’s been thinking they’d like a new colorful bangle bracelet to go with that sweater…

TWiP: Ornament Season Begins

This Week in Pictures, Week 47, 2021

Ah, Thanksgiving week. I have always loved Thanksgiving, both for the opportunity to gather with family, and as a harbinger of the Christmas season. But during years such as this one, where I have been gainfully employed, I have also come to appreciate Thanksgiving for the four-day weekend it provides 🙂
