Maybe there is no hope for me. You might be able to tell that I have a thing for Crazy Lace Agate. NOT my fault – look at it! My only hope now is that I might be able to save others. For all you jewelry makers out there that struggle with cabochon addiction. Run! […]

‘As far as I’m concerned, if a person desires to write, it’s worth trying to find a way to do it, even five minutes a day, and what happens to the writing afterward is a separate issue. The act of doing it has enormous value on its own.’ – Aimee Bender. – I read an article this […]
I made a box.
And put an amethyst in it. I know. I said that amethyst was banned from my studio, See here. But it seems I am a glutton for punishment. The design of this pendant is really more a pocket than a box. I’ve been wanting to try something like this for a while now but wasn’t […]
A disturbance in the ranks.
The troops are gathering. And they’re looking pretty determined. Wally is keeping a close eye on them, whilst appearing nonchalant. And Spencer is on high alert. In a shrewd feign of guarding the jewels. Pickles, not photographed here, is undercover. Some might think that she is slightly ashamed of her body weight, but she is, […]
It’s going to be a Friday sort of day …
I love Fridays, even though it’s not the end of a work week for me. You just get that feeling of, don’t you. Spencer’s had a hard day already, and it’s only 11:15. It took him a while to get out of bed, but once he did, he managed it to make it to the […]
I woke up dreaming that my dad had died 🙁 Very sad. It set my day off badly. I called my dad and he was fine, but I still felt sad. So, today has been a drooping day. All of me is drooping, especially my face which kind of bothers me as it also feels […]
I’ve been finger painting. Which I love, except now I have paint all over my bra strap. I’ve been pallet knife painting. Which I also love and it’s a little less messy – bonus. And, I’ve been doing, whatever the hell this is, Really not sure at the moment. It started off as an acrylic mess, don’t […]
Hit and run.
To anyone reading out there, this is a hit and run, (sorry), but I just had to post this link. I really enjoyed it and I hope you do to. […]
This just out. Guardian angel on sick leave until further notice …
Please, if you are sensitive, and can’t handle the gruesome, look away. This is not a happy sight. I think I knew when he accepted the job that nothing good could come of it. Well, o.k., I admit I gave him no choice in the matter, but, as far as I was concerned the job […]
Playing with Pixlr
I’ve been playing with pixlr and I’m liking this scratchy effect although I’m not sure it would sell my jewelry for me 🙂 It’s great what you can do with these programmes and this one is free if you want to check it out. It just takes a minute to figure it out and then […]
I am a slow reader and proud of it …
I’m still reading The Secret History by Donna Tartt. I don’t think I’m so much a slow reader, but rather, I tend not to read until I go to bed. Occasionally I read during the day, on the weekend perhaps, but usually I have other things I’m doing so I find I’m reluctant to spare […]
Keeping it simple.
Yesterday I wrote a long post about the African Green Opal. It was really boring – so I deleted it. So, until I don’t feel so boring I’m just going to keep it simple, fumble around WordPress to get my bearings and try to get my umph back from wherever it’s gone. These are my […]
