Sorry I disappeared for a few days. Winter's finally kicking in around here which sucks of course. I was hoping for a relatively snow-free winter but we can all agree that's not gonna happen. First big storm of the season is due this coming weekend. I'm not a fan of snowstorms, but I'm even less of a fan of blizzards, so I'm hoping it's not going to be a blizzard. Those are the worst.
Continuing to get stuff off the craft table, I unearthed a plain white barrette and covered it with Guatemalan fabric, then glued on the charms.
This is the float I got up in PTown last fall, to which I added a beaded strand with little square mirrors. It was hard to photograph.
I got this cool pendant and beaded a necklace for it. However, it was just a bit too big for me. I can't wear pendants this big, even though it's really pretty. I gave it to my friend Clair.
Well the Seahawks went down in Carolina on Sunday, which sucked. They left their A game back in Seattle. But I made a batch of cookies anyway, last week.
As usual, Sasquatch represents.
I also had a little resin starter kit that I got last year and didn't use. Since I had this empty Altoids tin, the little duck and crab, I envisioned a little beach/pond type scene. I know rubber duckies aren't found on the beach...but in the 1990s a ship dumped a container full of them into the ocean and they floated around the world, landing on beaches all over the place. I had a hell of a time trying to get that 'grass' near the rock on the left to stand up, even though I put it in after the resin was set for a few hours. Still need to cover the outside with paper but this is the gist. I'd used resin for a couple of pendant molds and didn't quite have as much as I wanted for this project.
These are the pendants I made, although I need to add metal bails so that they can be strung. The paper (peace sign & pink) worked so-so. The key & gears came out the best. And I couldn't get the Evergreen State to stay in the middle.
At this point I have so many more craft ideas that I'm already overwhelmed and don't know where to start! I need to seriously try to organize things so I can move ahead with my projects.
