Talented Friends and Inventions!
The header photo today is a piece of jewelry that was done by my friend who owns...
SpanishLullabies, on etsy. She is truly amazing in what she does with her jewelry. If you remember, in an earlier post she twisted my shop name in wire while I was sitting and looking at her! Well, I have an interview and pictures of her work coming soon.
I also have two friends who have been making the news press lately! They're both Storytellers. Meaning that they reenact historical times and tell the story from the perspective of the historical person. There's not that many people that do this anymore, especially not in the Northeastern part of the United States. But I have two friends who do!! One is Gwen...
I'm putting together a package to show you my other friend....maybe even including some video! I hope you will enjoy that. It's coming up very soon too....The truth is that I have lots of talented friends...from painters, knitters and crafters, to actors, singers, and teachers...who inspire me all the time. I guess that's why my brain is working so furiously all the time!
And because I felt so good yesterday, I was like a machine of productivity!! :-] I woke up ready to go! And good thing too, because I had a custom order that I had to get done...I sold my little Hide Away Slipper Necklace to a customer and she came back and asked me to make her another one!
The problem for me was that I didn't write the pattern down when I made the original one!! So yesterday I had to figure out how to re-do it, and then WRITE IT DOWN!! :-v It took three tries to get the sizing and everything right, but I did it!! This is one of the necklaces I finished....Yes, I said ONE OF....! :-]
And since I don't like to waste things, not even the ugly...didn't-turn-out-exactly-how-I-wanted...things, I made something out of them too.....KEY CHAINS!
Have a good day everyone! What are your plans today?!
One day of the week I'm just as good as good can be!
The next day I'm in pain so bad that I can hardly see!
One day I'm a typing, tweeting, fool with humorous banter.
The next day I'm an irritated, angry, yelling, ranter!
One day it'll come together, but unfortunately not now!
Too bad too, because this week is starting with an "OW!"
