This is the new ATC I've made for the May ATC swap at the Salvage Studio. The theme this month is "black and white." I found a wonderful cabinet card with this photo in it when Sara and I went to the Tulip Festival last week. I loved the fact that it's a photo of two sisters. My sister is so much on my mind lately especially with my trip to visit her coming up later this week. all came together! I'm making one other design for the black and white swap. We have to make a total of thirty ATC's. I'll scan the other one in soon.

Bird's Nest Necklace

I've seen several different people on the internet creating these bird nest charms. I've admired them and almost bought one but decided to try my hand at making one instead. Last night I was playing around with some beads and wire I had on hand and this is the result. I think it's not too bad for a first go. I want to buy some better wire and try it again. What do you think?

Good morning! I ran across this and of course had to take this quiz...silly I know.

I don't know what the day has in store today...I have no plans. I'm still a bit tired from yesterday. I had to drive down to Olympia and work in the center there. It was a beautiful drive down but it made for a long day. I'm going to have to take that drive when I'm not working...I saw lots of antique shops that were just calling out my name!

Self portrait

This is a self portrait I did in response to an exercise on an art site I was looking at. I don't really know how to draw but I thought I'd give it a try anyway. I decided to make it a bit of a fanciful self portrait...I don't really have wings you know. There are definitely days I wish I did!

Hello world!

I've been wanting a place to muse on things so I've decided to start a blog. I've not had much success in the past when I've tried to keep journals or diaries but I think I'll give it another try. So here goes...
