Yep, that’s right…it’s March! I love the month of March. Not only is it the month of my birth, but the weather starts being nice again, the sun is out, the grass is green…and…we all get to be Irish for a day.
We had a couple of really fun Celtic themed classes over the weekend, so that led right into this week’s Diva Challenge (#259) “A Touch of the Irish.” This was one of those pieces I was particularly proud of when I finished it. I have not forged into the ZenGems craze because I did all this stuff 20 years ago when I was designing jewelry, but I broke out my Prismacolor Premier pencils and some luscious hand-made Garza Papel (from Spain) and pulled this off.
I know…huh? I keep looking at it..lol.
If you want to see the steps I took for the gems, check this out…
I didn’t get a blog up last week, it was my birthday…I joked to one of my students who is a professional cake decorator that she should bring me a birthday cupcake (since I am watching my girlish figure) and she arrived with this:
That is one HUGE cupcake…and it was really tasty too.
I did get the Diva Challenge (#258 UMT Rautyflex) done too, although I just did it in my Tangle Journal.
There was some unusually beautiful skies here this week, with pretty vapor trails. I loved how they made a pretty perfect X there…
I will have the April Schedule up by the end of the week. I am working on a sample for a class, so be sure to save the date (April 2) if you are in the area. Origami meets Zentangle, and it is so fun to fold!
That is all for now…Stay Crazy My Friends!
