I guess I should touch base with folks about what's going on in my part of the world. Two weeks ago an incident with a bat in our basement was going to be part of my next post and as creepy and disrupting as it was then, it just doesn't seem blog worthy today.
Yesterday we felt the vibrations from an earthquake here in our state of Virginia and I thought for sure that would be blog worthy. Alas, after hearing all the comments made by folks on the television that have been in real earthquakes about how silly we acted about it all...not blog worthy. Just not feeling it.
I spent the last several weeks working on making bracelets, some of which turned out pretty cool...but once again they probably aren't blog worthy.
This first one was a second hand bracelet, that I wire wrapped with pink wire and added clear plastic beads from a second hand necklace.
This is a polymer clay bracelet embellished with wire and leather cording tied in knots for some texture.
While this one is polymer clay painted with the ever present gold leafing pen, wrapped in wire and embellished with Tim Holtz gears, held on with black polymer clay fashioned to look like screw-heads.
These last two are polymer clay bases covered with randomly shaped chunks and pieces of polymer clay. Good way to use up scraps. Then carved and baked, after which I highlighted them with ivory acrylic paint.
My hubby is working very hard at revamping my clothes closet. The before pictures I took just don't do justice to how old fashioned and non-functional it really was, so that turned out to be not so blog worthy.
Hubby tore down all the old shelving and rods and is putting up new white shelving. It's very nice and bright. Having a carpenter for a spouse is a good thing. After shots will be forthcoming.
Now you probably know by now, I'm normally a very happy, upbeat gal. I like and appreciate most things. When it comes to art and crafting, if I find something interesting, I usually Google it and check it out online and then proceed with my take on it. It's just this...I don't get physically excited over things. Shoot, sometimes when something is really funny, I don't even laugh, I just say "now that's really funny". I'm laid back. Always. So when I say something is lovely or that I really like it, I mean just that. So don't think that I don't. If you want me to jump up and down to prove how much I love something, you will probably be disappointed.
I'm not sure how any of that that applies to this post, except to say that with the bat, and the earthquake and my clothes closet being remodeled, plus the silly bracelets, this is seemingly a non blog worthy post. I guess sometimes that's just the way it is. Glug.
Don't forget to send photos of your work area and/or your current projects to be the topic of future posts on Where We Really Create. We are showcasing Jenny B. this week and be on the lookout for my friend Kristen next week. My favorite sibling will be the next week. So keep those cards and letters coming and we'll talk again soon.
Please forgive the typos, this stupid blogger is making me coo-coo, and I may not have corrected them all.
