Some Days...

Some days are great, others are not. The other day, my daughter and I were in the grocery store and the bakers were playing a game. Stand on a number; if they pick your number, you win a cake. Guess what? I won! Then, when I got home, I found that I had won a blog giveaway (which I will show you when it arrives)! Wow - I should play the lottery, I thought. BAM - going down the stairs in my socks, I fell - I have huge deep bruises on my arm and my backside! Really hurts. Then I got to participate in an ultrasound, and my son is having some anxiety. Life goes on, the birds keep singing. Thankfully spring is a mere 19 days away!

St. Patrick's Day is not very far away, as well. I have some nice green beads in the SueBeads etsy store, and on my web site! Check them out if you like to make themed jewelry!

Good grief! I guess you used up all of your luck too early in the day? I hope you feel better - I hate big mean bruises...If it tells you anything about me...I was THRILLED when I saw that our house had rounded corners :o) The fewer corners to bump into, the better...SO, I guess it's a good thing my house doesn't have stairs!

Awww, Sue, how awful. Good you didn't break anything. But ouch. Was the cake good? If it was chocolate, that would be a little compensation.

ACCK! I am the queen of falling down at home so I totally know how you feel. So sorry it happened to you and hope the bruises heal fast!

Cake's good! But a fall...that's bad. I fell down the steps one time in my house all by myself and didn't happen to have any clothes on...all I could think of was that this was how the emergency people would find me! Luckily, I just had a couple of bruises and some brushburn (on key padded hind areas!) haaaaaa

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!
