A Few New Things

I managed to get these little guys into my Etsy shop today.  I hope to add a few more things this weekend but we will see.  We have some family projects to tend to and boy they need doing.   I am just about done with my stack of custom items and special projects and I'm thinking that I'll take a bit of a break and work on getting the shop stocked up for a bit.  I have tons of stuff cut out and I want to get that all put together and done so I can play with some metal for a bit.  I have been collecting old metal buttons and playing with oxidation and patina.  Fun stuff!  I think I am also going to make some more of my pendants using the same technique.  I hope to have something to show for it soon.  Right now, all the pieces I have been working on are sitting on the table in the kitchen slowly changing from shiny to old and crusty.  I have a soft spot in my heart for old and crusty:)  Shiny is just too overdone to me!  Now off to bake some cookies for my sick kiddos and get ready for this crazy couple of days ahead.  Wish me luck!

Princess Linus

I'm taking a break from gall bladder funkiness and sewing to post this picture of lovely Princess Linus.  He is missing his tiara but he loves his beautiful pink collar.  Because, you know, Linus can be a princess if he really wants to.  That's what my dear Ed says.  Happy Wednesday!
