Some more brooches.
When I say some I mean tons.
Do you know I was about to be stressed about not blogging or listing new things for so long but since several commenters said don't sweat, just take care of yourself, I was like 'nah, I got permission.'
Check out the pattern on this ammonite.
Here's this very dark one.
But I dont know if I'll be listing today, taking all these pix was enough.
Oh so guess what y'all?
I turned 40!!!!!
I feel so accomplished, just from being 40. Like, good for me to have sat around and allowed time to elapse.
And Mr. Devices and I celebrated our 9th anniversary. We decided it felt more like 4 years than 9 though.
I still have nightmares that I'm back with my exes. Shit. What a handful of... handfuls.
What else happened?
Got so used to reading on the kindle app that the other day I was reading an actual paperback and I found myself tapping on a word to get the definition to pop up.
It's like the times I've found myself in front of my house clicking the car unlock button on the keychain and wondering why the front door's not opening.
Is this just me?
Also my mom's cat Blanquito taught himself how to use the toilet.
Dad just caught him on it today.
Here's a couple bracelets, haven't made those in ages.
Very victorian tribal in the mix of elements.
This one uses a long section from a kutchi hair ornament.
And this big ol' rhinestone buckle I curved for braceletness.
Also some beads.
And these earring pair thingies.
Someone asked me how I managed to drill a hole through the glass in these.
It's very thin glass and the layers of resin sort of protect it. I don't know.
I also made a couple necklaces I haven't yet fully photographed.
And I have some bead soups and earring pair collections to photo as well... but I think the next couple hours are gonna be dedicated to a nice nap.
