I made Bracelets


DSCN2611 I was determined to make something. So I dug out the beads and a few charms I had stashed away and made 14 bracelets. I used the stretch silicone so they will go on easy. I had a good time making them, even the few times I dropped beads and they scattered everywhere. Finley thought it was a great game. I will take them to Bazaar.


The doors are on the closet, still have to do the trim and my antique knobs. I have collected glass knobs for many years with only the hope that one day they would find a place in our home. So when we moved into this cottage Farmhouse, one by one they have found a home. The doors were here in the peach room, so they are recycled.

Just for fun…..what do you think this is???

The Header

I thought this header fit my mood today. A little like Alice when she fell down the hole. Not sure about what is, but not wanting to go down the hole in the ground either.

I want to create some fun craft, but unable to center on the doing. I think it has to do with the remodel of my upstairs. It’s like I am waiting for something special and until then, I am a little lost. It seems all of my mental energy is directed to one thing…The Loft!

I went looking at blogs this morning, some I had never seen before which was fun. I guess that I am looking for inspiration, and there is really wonderful things being done on blogs, and I do not have a clue how to get a kick start.

I have so many things to work with, paper, scissors, paste, fabric, colored pins, pins, beads, etc, no limit to what I should be able to do.

What do you do when you are blocked creatively?il_430xN_176000144

It rained here for the first time in months. The quail were all over the field waiting for the warms to come up. We could smell the rain before it got here and celebrated the first drops on the patio. We have had so much smoke from the fires up the hill. And earlier in the evening we could see blue sky…that was really nice. Here at my computer I can hear the cars on the wet pavement, it sounds good to me. It wasn’t cold, so we had the back door open all day. My only regret is the flies came in.
