OMG... It's MARCH!
Is it just me???
Or was that a really quick month???
Even with the extra day in it!

I will try to get the last few days of my pictures posted soon.

Thank you for helping me get through one of the rottenest times of the year!
Having a goal, no matter how small, really helped me keep moving.
I hope you had fun and that it made a difference in your February!
Even if you didn't get something done every day, didn't finish as many things as you would have liked, do as many different things... You get credit in my book for showing up and even trying!

The days are getting longer and warmer, but please, keep MAKING THINGS!
and feel free to post them here occasionally...

Many Things...
I'm here because gothtique said I should be. I know I'm a little late for the challenge but...

At the beginning of February I was considering taking part in the Thing-a-day challenge, but I didn't think I could reasonably do it. Setting aside an hour a day to *make something* just didn't seem like something I could do. Mostly because many of the things I make take more than an hour, sometimes more than a day. And I often don't have time or energy every day. So I sort of unofficially set my own goal to make something *for* everyday in February, but not necessarily *on* every day in February. Thus making 29 different things by the end of the month.
Well... lets just say I have surpassed that number, currently having completed 35 projects for the month and I still have a few more days to go.

The Muse, she hit me hard this month when it came to beadwork.
Here is the latest round of earrings and one pendant. There are more necklaces I still need to photograph. This is about a week worth the projects.

Thing-A-day Challenge: Day 20 and 22
I am going to have to make two things tomorrow or Sunday, to make up for the day I lost driving to and from CT...
but twist my arm.

Matt & Mara's wedding gift! (group)
Matt & Mara's wedding gift! (group)
I am not sure these count as my work. But they are my idea. I bought the glasses, commissioned my friend Jack to do the work, but it is not like I invented the logo or blew the glasses myself.

The logo was designed my Mara's sister and is on all the invitations, etc... I asked her permission to use it on the gift.

I made a visit to my jeweler yesterday and he gave me a bunch of little silver men. He said he didn't know what they use them for. Anybody got a clue? Also, he gave me a bunch of 2 in. sand dollars. They don't seem to be stable enough to make a necklace out of them without doing something to them. Anybody got a clue how I would stabilize them?

Frenado Lives ( Day 14)

Mom gave me Lola for Christmas. I decide to make Fernado for Lola. She seemed so alone out on my cold porch. Yes.....I admit I am a bit touched in the head.

I made these origami birds out of watercolour paper. I wet the paper before I started folding. I used clothes pins to secure them into the shape, and allowed to dry. I punched hole in either side of fold on wings to hang with. I then painted them with their first wash. Allowed to dry again. I punched holes along edges of wing and tales for decoration. Then painted eye, beak, and tips of wings. I used glue and clothes pins to secure in appropriate places.
