So sleeeeeeepy

This was my last batch of buttons from the Clayathon.  I didn’t even get to drill the holes properly before I left for home.  This time instead of matching to a particular colorway of a fabric collection, I used a particular pattern (French Wallpaper) in several different compatible colors.  These are from Belle by Amy […]

Reporting Live from the Clayathon

I mixed three colors to coordinate with Joel Dewberry’s Aviary collection (the “bloom” palette), and then I whipped up some buttons, a pair of earrings, and something else that I’ll show you in a little more detail another time.

T-60 minutes or so

Closed, originally uploaded by Jasoon. It’s the end of the second week of December, and true to form, I am really looking forward to my time off. Not that I should really refer to it as time “off.” The week before Christmas I will spend on decorating, shopping, making things, and all of the wonderful […]
