My worry wart came today. It’s bigger than I thought, which is good as I have a lot of worries. As it’s so big I thought I would put it on the mantle along with the others in my menagerie of oddities so that the other people living with me can take advantage of its […]

How To #4 – More links.
Cut 1″ lengths of 14 gauge sterling silver wire. This produces a fairly chunky link – you can experiment with different lengths and gauges to suit your taste. Now put the music on and bring out the christmas present you got from your middle child who thoughtfully wants to protect your hearing from the hammering […]
This is a worry wart. I need one. (Click photo to get your own wart). –
Wot chu say Wol?
Some paintings I’m working on. But I’m really struggling. I think the problem is, I’m all over the place. Wot chu say Wol? My thoughts exactly. –
The way of the lost.
I may have got a bit carried away with this one. The houses are rightly shocked as they are being swept away downstream after the road collapsed into the river. Well, it’s just a beginning. Here are the first two. I don’t particularly like them which is why I think the houses went the way […]
I have issues, Wally has issues, we all have issues.
I did paint yesterday – after all that moaning. I also made a decision. (I’m having commitment issues as I type. Decision is a pretty decisive word). The other day I saw an article on Etsy about a quilt maker who decided to make a quilt a day. You can find her shop here. […]
I think its going to be a jewelry kind of day today. I haven’t made anything since my dad was here except to paint. But, I’ve now decided to give up on the painting. Yep, I’ve gone into my, I can’t do it and it’s bringing me down, stage. It generally happens after a few […]
Pissarro and the deadliest colour in the crayon box.
An update of yesterday’s painting. Dick Frances (yep, still with him) was going at it with the whole horse tampering thing and somehow, in the heat of things, I got a bit carried away with the tree. Think I’ll knock it back a bit today. I’m enjoying the colours especially the pink behind the house […]
A rainy Pissarro kind of day.
Big storm last night and it looks like more rain today. Right now it’s dark and cosy. A good reading day, but, I’m thinking studio … A while back I started this, which turned into this, then this, and now this, As always I think I prefer the first one. Bummer! Today I’ll be continuing […]
It’s O.K. really :)
Update from this mornings post. – So, perhaps the hair didn’t come out so well but I had a jewelry sale this morning which topped me close to the $1000 mark. Okay, so I didn’t really make $1000, as P would be eager to point out to you, as I have never worked my jewelry […]
When Hairy met Scary.
Dad’s gone, the garden is a disaster and I’m getting my hair cut today. Sounds like it’s going to be a touch and go day. Actually dad’s going wasn’t as bad as it usually is. I hate to see him go and it always seems as though we just do a drive by at the […]
It doesn’t look as though I did much more to it but I managed to sneak back in the studio yesterday and now I have this. I’m not sure if I want to put the windows and doors in. I kind of like it without them. My houses always seem to look a bit shocked […]
Getting loose with Michael.
Just can’t get anything going with my dad still here but I did work some more on this yesterday. It went from this, to this, to this. Really not sure about it yet. I somehow think I prefer the choppy feel of the second, but I’ll wait and see. I love colour. If you were […]
Not a lot being done around here. I didn’t take any new photos to list but I have been buying up all the bead supplies on Etsy … People aren’t allowed to visit me any more because I turn into super sofa sitting girl with my veins plugged into the computer. Here are some things […]
