Whew, what a day!

I left early, went down to the engineer's and we went to SouthSide Works for some last minute shopping and a holiday lunch together at Cheesecake Factory. We both ordered "lunch size" entrees, which were still too big for us to eat! Then I came home and the hvac guy came to do the furnace clean and check. Then I ran up to the store with my son. Then I made a very bad mom dinner. Then I went through all the gifts to make sure everything was in order. Then we cleaned the rat cage. Then I uploaded a bunch of stuff to my flickr account. Now I am going to go wrap some gifts. Long day. I am looking forward to going to bed and sleeping in tomorrow!

The kids and engineer are going to see Avatar tomorrow. I am not. I heard that us old folks will get ill with all the motion and effects. Which I believe, since I can't even watch someone playing the Wii car racing games without getting dizzy! I will instead make beads! I have two orders I need to get done, plus I really need to get some new beads for the etsy store!

Glad you mentioned that about Avatar, I was thinking of going to see it with my oldest and knowing that, there is no way!! I get dizzy too and I really don't enjoy that so is that.
I hope you have a Merry Christmas!!

Happy Accident!

Months ago, I took a class at ArtBliss given by Barbara Lewis of Painting with Fire. It involved learning how to make torch-fired enamel beads. I loved it - as you may be able to guess. Barbara did teach us how to fuse items into a flat pendant, but we didn't spend a lot of time on that process, as the day seemed to go so fast! I was making enameled pieces the other night, and due to my own ineptness (remember the big toe burn???) I was able to fuse these two pieces together totally by accident. Now of course, it isn't a usable piece. However, now that I know how to do it, I can see some pieces like this in my future! I can't wait to get more copper cutouts!

Art Elements February Theme Challenge - Birds of Prey

Cathy Mendola chose Birds of Prey for the theme this month, and it's a pretty awesome theme. You are going to see some amazing work by my team members and the guests who have participated this month! I had plans of doing more than I did, as indicated by the purchases I made for the projects I had in my head. However, I have been doing some work in my house, so whenever time permitted, meaning after work and weekend hours, we were pretty much doing the room renovations. One of them is going to be my study/studio, and I seem to be foiled at every move by trying to get some work tables. So I have only one small project to show you this month.  But first, the purchases!

This first Bali carved owl totem I got from fifirosedesigns on etsy - I wanted to make a mold and make my own cabochon to use in a necklace. However, I really did get around to doing that. So, I purchased the owl heads below.

These owl head cabochons are from ArtisticVariations84 on etsy - they are just fantastic, but …

October Art Elements Theme Challenge - Petroglyphs

I'm afraid I just didn't have the time to participate in last months theme, which was faerie. This month the theme is petroglyphs hosted by Karen Totten. Since I'm spending 10 days in Iceland this month, I really didn't get to spend any extended amount of time on the theme, but I did find these AWESOME petroglyph earring charms by Jill of Foxpaws on etsy! I highly recommend checking out her shop - every package you get is a gift in itself - TRUST ME!

SO here are the earrings I made!

I hope you also visit all the other participants! I'm sure there will be some awesome creations!
