My husband the college student ( I do love how that sounds!) will be giving a speech in speech class about our business. I have this huge desire to somehow sneak in and watch it. He's quite enthused about it, as this whole steampunk / industrial chic stuff I'm doing is much more to his taste. It makes it extra nice for me with Jerry more involved.
And he gets to destroy stuff, so it's a good deal all the way around. I even bought him his own set of mini- screw drivers for the watches. He has bolt cutters, a dremel and a hack saw. If I could only figure out a way for him to use fire in the process, he would be in heaven!
I have acceptance in another art show, I'll be updating my website this week with the shows I know about so far. It's shaping up to be a great year!
I'm waiting on farmer's Market notification... fingers are crossed I'll get 5 or more slots again this year.
I just bought a bunch of chain to add to my growing collection of chain. Chain now takes up 5 Plano boxes. I think I might be a hoarder.
oh wait, I already know I'm a hoarder. At least I'm pretty tidy about hoarding... they are in Plano boxes after all.
Maybe it's more like a dragon hoarding that the tv show type ! ( Shinny! )
I woke up this weekend and realized my first show is now less than 2 months off. I made 5 bracelets and 3 pins this weekend, and started laying out several more bracelets.
I'm also prepping pieces for more of my watch parts / black triangle bracelets. Jerry even helped me last night between commercials of Walking Dead ( is that not the most awesome show???) by embossing the triangles, and I sanded and buffed them. I need to pick up/clean the studio tonight as it's reaching a level of clutter I cannot tolerate. My hopes are to get everything ship shape tonight, and tomorrow I'll do the rivet/wire work on the triangle components . By the end of the week I'll have them assembled.
It's time to make more jewelry using salvaged bits and parts. I've got a good pile now that are clean. I'm going to dump them out on the work table ( once it's clean) , spread them out, and then see what speaks to me.
As part of Jerry speech, he has a line about I get inspiration from chocolate, romance novels and avoiding house work. Sounds good to me!
