Snowman Season

These little guys are ready to be painted. One of my favorite things to do...add paperclay to gourds (these I grew years ago) and then paint them. Tis the season for snowwomen and snowmen!

Day 4 - not doing this anymore LOL -will only post when I feel like it. :)

This is a paper mache' head that I made a while ago. It fell off the wall when a crazy squirrel got into the house, ran up and around the walls and at one point landed on this head knocking it onto the floor. I need to repair it in a few places. Black Beauty, I call it. I don't remember what happened to the squirrel.

Day 3

Adding more blank pages (it's a bit thin) and looking for just the right leaf to jazz up the cover. Oh, and see my new rug! It's not an area rug, but a floor mat - which is why it was only 10% off rather than 30% off - even though the sign directly in front of it said 30% off. I told the clerk that the sign was a bit misleading and confusing. She said it was confusing for them too. Huh? That was supposed to make me feel better? Then she took the sign away. It's okay though. I like the rug a lot.

Day 2

One of my sons hand-makes wooden paddles and covers them with resin. Here's a link to a pic with one of his paddles in his Instagram account--- https://www.instagram.com/p/B2h7fF7AmY3/ . When he does a resin pour (in my husband's workshop - which means it's convenient for both of us) he often saves just a bit of resin for me to use for the blank bezels that I've purchased for making jewelry. This summer I started drying small leaves and flowers to preserve in resin necklaces, which is why there are so many books filled with Queen-Anne's-Lace or ferns in my house.

Day 1

I made some notebooks from cloth and paper . They had been near completion for  awhile, but needed a few extras leaf bits added. Geranium and eucalyptus and sumac and rose and catalpa leaves are all here. Most all of the pages are blank, but I did add a print here and there.

Walk 2

Here is another look into my backyard on April 4, 2020.
