E and I have been making jewelry. I have a new-found admiration and appreciation for jewelry makers. And a new craft love. I think it is much harder than it looks. For some reason I always thought it was going to be easy. Not so much...I will get some pictures up for those necklaces I made as soon as they meet 'family approval' at a birthday party tomorrow! Seems I'm always one post behind in the pictures...oh the suspense (wink wink).
This is a rule I always remind myself when I (or my girls) are creating something.
Here's a little story...When I was a little girl in France, I went for a year to a Catholic school (click on the link for beautiful pictures of this historical place)- anyway the art teacher gave us an assignment for ''drawing our dream house''. I apparently drew it "incorrectly".You could see both sides of the ends of the house-'realistically wrong' in perspective. Really right in my drawing of a 'dream home', I thought. I was so angry at him for saying my dream house was 'wrong'. I think he wanted me to redo it but if my memory serves correctly, I refused. It's my dream house, I can draw it as I like.
So free-form pancakes all around!
This morning we also made Valentine's ...
And... for fun here's a hat I finished up, but I don't remember if I ever mentioned I was knitting it?...It was pretty easy- easier than it looked to me, and I think it turned out well...It's the "Sideways Grande hat" from "Boutique Knits" by Laura Irwin. I just used a fun yarn I had to see if I could even make it...I believe it's malabrigo but might be wrong??
My daughter M confiscated it from me!
Have a Happy, loving, creative day!
