Since it's snowing like, every other day almost, I've been making lots of stuff. Been wanting to make necklaces for those pendants for awhile. The Chinese Horoscope characters are Dragon and Tiger. And also a bracelet from some of those awesome Czech beads that Joe brought back from Prague.
Bigger pic of the necklaces. The blue morpho wing pendant (far left) just didn't look good with anything other than liquid silver. And I also didn't want any beads distracting from the pendant cause it's soooo pretty.
Couple bracelets for Kris; the one on the right has the Notre Dame colours.
This ice crystal was really shining on some snow outside so I boosted the contrast on the pic on the computer and that brought out a bunch of rainbows in the snow.
A fresh coating of snow is always really pretty as long as it's just a couple inches. I put this on the hood of my car and then got the brain storm to spray coloured water all over it.
This was just before the Superbowl so I did the Hawks' colours and 12th man on the back of the car.
Mary was in from Idaho so I made this for her.
Hanging thing...I guess for a window or whatever.
Craft kit of the month project: painting techniques. I had to use my own paint cause the stuff that came in the kit was dry, and a really yucky shade of midnight blue. Dots are time consuming and can be really hard to make the right size.
Melted some of those plastic three sided beads. I used to call them tri-beads when I was a kid. It took a long to time arrange them around the bottom of the pie pan and I must've bumped the pan when I put it in the oven because that one side came out all wonky.

This was shot looking through the above, at my light.
The day of the Superbowl, I had potato skins with cheese, turkey bacon & scallions and a Jones cream soda. When I got the potato, the bin sign said, 'Idaho'. Jones Soda is bottled in Seattle but is a product of BC, so I had a Pacific Northwest themed snack.
And then I had to do this to the bottle afterwards with Hawks' colour glitter & rhinestones.
Finally, I started this cross stitch during the game and took about a week, off and on, to finish.
