While busy writing my tute, I found myself sneaking in some making time.
In fact, these three lariats here all include sea glass charms I made as samples of the decoupage variation in the tute.
Maybe not pitfalls, I just bore easily. Why I'm always having to come up with something different- short attention span.
So I took a break from tooting and listed these today. Wait. That's my idea of a break? What's wrong with me?
Little Uruguayan charms and bits. Even the macrame cord was from a street artisan I met in Tacuarembo, the town my dad's family lives in. People there have a very well-deserved reputation for thinking their little village is the center of the universe.
The tin above I got in Montevideo, but it's from a box of Chinese tea so it's traveled the world. Isn't that amazing though?
I cut out these teeny bits of old Meyercord waterslide decals I got from TeapotsandTelephones. Thing is when I sealed it with Varathane, the pattern of the tin sort of revived and became much more visible. So Imna have to experiment more with that stuff on old tin, on chain, on everything.
Order and Harmony.
As you can see I got a zillion of these little plaques so I'm keeping on making these earrings as long as they keep on selling. In fact I've been enjoying very steady sales lately, for which I'm so appreciative. Humbled. Between that and the exercise I can almost convince myself I'm a normal, functional human being. I went to a cycling class on Monday!!! My poor butt.
Happy pumpkin month everybody.
