make wonderful stocking stuffers, little gifts, big gifts, just because gifts! I'll be making some today.
Hello, just a few things from my creative corner of the world :-)
I'm hoping for some sun to get pics of my 2 new pieces to show you. I'm pretty excited about one in particular because it represents my branching out from jewelry into containers, with lids....oooo I can't wait to get pics of this piece.
My instructor keeps encouraging me to step outside my comfort zone...and he's right about this -
It's only metal, it can be remelted, it isn't the end of the world if it doesn't turn out perfect.
and...I like to think
Yes! After several changes the piece DID turn out fantastic and I am proud of it!
It's also very lovely to dig deep into your creative brain and make something from your soul, not that all of the smithed pieces on Etsy aren't AMAZING! (they are!)
~it just feels good to create something in my whimsical style, don't we all? <-Crave to create from our own souls?
News from my home: this guy is sick going on day 2...this was taken this time last year...he's not a happy camper today...sooo, I must tread lightly with my hammer taps again...(he's refused coffee for 2 days now, that's pretty serious! or dramatic) :P
