Although I have been glazing and kilning and photoshopping and sorting, I haven't seemed to translate that into a blog post lately. My next post will be filled with new work though, I managed to get a good package of new designs in the mail to submit to Beads 2011 before the deadline and I'm in the process of adding my backlog of work to the website.
So instead of beads, I bring you randomness!
One of my "week of birthday" gifts from the hubster...just in time for Storm Watch 2010 in Southern California! Luckily we all survived our extreme weather (sorry to those of you who actually DO experience such things) and it's now back to a balmy sunny temperature. I realize that I'll probably only wear them once or twice a year but they were just too cute to do without (and were hugely on sale to boot...hee hee snort giggle!).
One of my new projects...possibly as an avoidance tactic for all the things I should be doing but am not. Still, aren't these the sweetest little pins? I used linen fabric that is folded and hand sewn into place then topped with one of my extra (read... random orphan or wonky) ceramic beads. I attached a brooch pin to the back so they can be pinned to a scarf or jacket. What do you think...should I add them to my Etsy shop?
I love the Pioneer Woman blog...much to my surprise, after reading a post or two to the hubster, I discovered that he now follows her blog as well...in honor of his love for chick blogs I gave him this photo on canvas for Christmas...it's one of Ree Drummond's amazing photos of moos on her ranch. I couldn't really get a great picture of it on the wall, it looks much larger in person!I was a little hesitant to have cows overseeing the dinner table but have resolved my concerns by letting them know that everything is chicken :)
And finally, this is why it's a challenge to just make the bed some days! It seems that most of my photos of the pupper involve her sleeping...of course that may be because she moves around too much when she's awake...Hope your weekend was wonderful!
