I had the pleasure of meeting jewelry artist and fellow Etsian Susan, aka yellowplum of Yellowplum Beads, on Sunday. She makes beautiful, intricate beaded jewelry, and is incredibly friendly and so easy to talk to. I’m really glad she suggested we meet up (I am far too shy to make the first move in most social situations) because now I have a new friend! That’s two this month, which I’m sure is some kind of record for hermits.
I also spent some time working on a new custom banner for Brianna of The Crochet Side fame. I would point you directly to the artwork, but I believe she’s waiting with baited breath to unveil a super-secret project relating to said banner, so I will keep my mouth shut and let her do the talking.
I have a photo shoot coming up sometime this month, exact date and time yet to be determined. I have a stash of smaller vintage clocks to work with, and over the weekend I bought yet another vintage clock (found via JennSki’s blog) on impulse. This one is so fracking adorable that I will probably put it up in my office when it has outlived its usefulness as a photo prop.
In fact, I’d really like to make some kind of wall art with all these pretty old clocks I have laying about, but I’m not sure how to go about doing so. Most of them are thick and heavy and wouldn’t hang on a wall easily, and as I may have mentioned before, I am engineering-challenged. This may be a job for the resident super-genius-engineery-type-person, Mr. Tim.
I had such grand ambitions for this evening: to make a baked ziti for dinner, take some photos, maybe even work on a new Web site layout. Then I realized that I’d forgotten to run the dishwasher last night, hence no clean dishes with which to cook (and it should go without saying that I am too lazy to do them by hand). So then I figured I’d take photos while I was waiting for the dishes to finish, until I discovered I’d left my camera’s switch in the “On” position (for about two weeks, no less), hence no battery power. And quite frankly, I am just too tired to wrangle with HTML/CSS/PHP code right now.
So, all grand ambitions have been postponed in favor of sitting on my butt and writing this blog post. Aren’t you lucky?
