Almost Showtime!

I've finished all my new pieces for the show this Saturday, and I'm pretty excited, just to see how people like (or don't, there is that chance) my stuff! Being a graphic designer for so long, I'm used to not seeing the initial reaction to my work, so it should be fun!

The collages are made with a recycled book (awful writing, nice font), vintage buttons, old embroidery thread, and paint! Necklaces are an amalgam of beads from all sorts of places.

Let me know what YOU think!

Shiny Springy Things!

I'm busy with necklaces this week for the show at the end of April. It's too much fun playing with beads again! I can't claim making the beads myself, though I'd love to make some like the orange flowered pendant piece.

A Little Lovely

I ducked out for a bit - new job, lots of mom things happening. It's spring, can you blame a girl?

We made Easter eggs over the weekend, it's one of my favorite things, because of all the happy accidents you get while dyeing eggs (and dropping them too fast into the mug so they have interesting crackles all over).

This one was one of my experiments, and I thought it had failed, until I turned it over. BEAUTIFUL! And the setting of glittery little boy hands doesn't hurt, either.

Hope you all are having a great spring!
