You sent me buttons. Oh How Fantastic!!!!

ML - I have put all the buttons you sent me on flicker for a record to enjoy over and over. Once they get mixed in with my buttons I won't remember which ones came from you. So generous. Here is what I have made out of the ribbons that you sent me. I am going to bead and decorate it next. Doesn't it look like a pretty catapillar. I don't know if there is such a thing. Have a great week, I know I will. Love ya. Rita

I finished one of the Orange and black Bracelets today.

I love the Orange and Black. I loved making it. I wore my sweat pants today and and old shirt because I had to take a look at the sprinklers. Oh gosh, I found one that was broken so I had to dig it up. What a mess. The knees on my sweatpants not only stretched out but they are black from the hole I had to dig. I got it all set up to be fixed and then I had to finish working. As soon as I finished the bracelet I wanted to photograph it so as I was looking for a place around the yard, a couple walked by the front with their dogs. I rushed out to have the lady put on the bracelet (I don't know why I did this) so I could get a good photograph. I can only imagine what they thought. I was so dirty and my hair was sticking off everywhere. Big black knees and dirty hands and here I have this beautiful sparkly bracelet in my hands. They are neighbors, what was I thinking. I spend way too much time by myself. Yikes. The orange beads glow in the dark. so cooolllll!!!! I put more pictures of this on flicker. I used a lot of the black glass buttons. Thanks ML

It has been a whole week!!!!

Wow, time sure seems to be flying by. I am trying to build up product for the show in San Francisco along with my other work. But I at least want to post something once a week. Here is the finished necklace I made with my new metal skills and a tube I knitted. The best part of the tube is the yarn is from North Carolina. I found it in a thrift shop out shopping with my sister. We had such a wonderful time together and I just can hardly wait to go there again this year.

Glitterfest was so fun!!!

I so enjoyed selling at Glitterfest. When I first arrived I was a bit overwelmed with all the talented artists that were there. It was hard for me to stay with my booth and not go looking. I was very envious of all the people walking around. My booth neighbors were fantastic. I was so inspired. Now I feel like I need to do a lot of work before I go to San Francisco next month. Here is a little illustration that I did that was inspired by the Glitterfest. It has nothing to do with the show but I feel it reflects the feelings I felt from all around me. I am working on compiling some illustrations for a calendar.
Yesterday I had to fix my color printer. Oh no, the parts were so tiny and I kept thinking I was gonna drop them inside the printer guts. I didn't and it appears to be fixed (maybe). Argh!!! I need that printer.

Here it is Saturday!!!

I have so much to do today to get ready for the Glitterfest Show I am doing next Saturday. But what am I doing???? I have to go to the Bank this morning so I am sitting here all dressed waiting until they open. Today I am going to try the PMC3 silver clay. We will see how it comes out.
