I might finally be able to get my head around the fact that I need to do market stuff. Maybe I can chalk it up to the fact that I took a jewelry class at Beadworld alittle more than a week ago. We cut up metal tins and turned pieces into earrings and pendants. Since then I’ve scoured a handful of thrift stores looking for tins with interesting prints. My local Goodwill is by far the best source. That place never fails to amaze me! And, I love having real reasons to pop in.
This lovely Klimt coffee tin many have to stay intact, even though these prints will make for lovely pieces.
Saturday I cut up almost all of the ones I had. Why I didn’t take a “before” photo, I do not know. However, here’s a sample of some of the cut up pieces. (Now to find a proper storage box before I hurt myself.
Here’s the pair of class-made earrings that started all of this.
Because Morgan was “Super Hero Homework Man” this weekend, I found myself with extra time for a few other projects, too.
I finished the “Meatopia” puzzle that he and I started.
I prepped my glittery signs so that they’re ready to be displayed at the market.
I finished another windowpane scarf.
I started another poncho. This new one has a very granny square/crochet vibe, and I’m OK with that.
Oh, and I finally started painting the five papier mache critters that have been parked on my kitchen counter for far too long.
These are another great example of when I need to take breathers from the process and do some photo documentation. It’s good to have goals.
