I made a silly shiny thing

I've been trying to do creative things again, if possible things that work up fairly quickly. Here's the one I perpetrated this week: Dandelion clock )

Beady Braceletry

Emily has her camera again.

The weather is less hot this week.

Therefore, Emily has been going to the bigger, farther away parks.

Monday, I dropped her off at Cal State to visit the arboretum. Today, I dropped her at Tri City. She blogged about both, see here and scroll down. So anyway, this morning, I had the house to myself for a couple of hours. I decided to take advantage of the opportunity by finishing up the Tibetan bead project. Bracelet Quartet )

After the bad night and getting up far too early, I went back to bed for a couple of hours. That actually helped; I started playing around with the materials for a birthday present I wanted to make, got going, and [shock gasp] finished it. And here it is )

I made a shiny thing

It's been a long, stressful, and depressing week. So today after I'd got the wash going and walked to the market, I blew off the usefuls and played.

I made a shiny thing. Then I took a picture of it, and the last shiny thing I made, too. Look, shiny! )

I made a shiny thing

I decided to take a day off from my online watercolor class and do what I felt like doing. These had been sitting and waiting for inspiration since I bought the pendant some years ago, and today it all came together. So I made a shiny thing. Wanna see my shiny thing? )

Finished a project

Today, as the have-to pile rose higher and higher, completely overwhelming the want-to pile, I decided to re-evaluate the entire list process. Rather than attempt to complete a thing-in-progress, I chose to try to complete a small bit of jewelry fiddlery. A poor thing, but mine own )
