Whew! I have had a lot going on these past couple of weeks. I am designing a website which really does take a lot of thought, but it has been fun so far.
I have made scrabble tile necklaces from the pictures I showed on my last blog post and have them on Etsy. Making the necklaces are not the hard part, it is deciding on the pictures that I hope people like. I keep refining what I do as well, see what medium works, what doesn't. I am going to make my new pendants via decoupage instead of the plastic cover that I have been using. I will post pics of both finished products so you can see what I mean.
After I finish making all my pendants, I will work on two projects people have asked for--a decoupaged bulletin board with matching pushpins and 'new baby' frame.
I am listening to Stephen King's Duma Key on audio in the car -- the story is located on a beach in Florida. That gave me a mirror idea! I have not been to the beach in ages and I miss it :
It reminds me of walking on the beach seeing all the shells that have washed up. I left the wood unpainted because it reminded me of driftwood and the wood is the color of sand.
Here are my latest pictures:
Mini 1/2" pine cones--how cute are they?!!
Leaf frond on cement--I was checking my picture focusing technique :)
Cardinal on my fence--I have been waiting FOREVER to get a picture of him!
