That’s right. A tangle named Dewd. I had done Dewd previously in my Venice Journal as part of the Project Pack 1 videos:
He is a cute little Dewd. Diva chose this for this week’s Challenge (#343) so I felt compelled to do it again. I started on a Black Tile that I had spray dyed with some sparkly substance.
Then something went horribly wrong when I got the idea to try Trans-zending on it. With a Purple Moonlight Gelly Roll. What was I thinking?
Remember kids, not everything turns out like it did in your head.
On a less terrifying note, I have been working my way through Ornament samples for class on the 9th. I am setting up stations for each ornament, so you can make as many as you like, and skip the ones that you don’t fancy.
Bijou makes a couple appearances on the list this year.
And again as a bell. (Credit Dorian Eng, CZT for this one.)
And a few cut outs that come out cute (There are more shapes too!)
And another one of Dorian Eng’s Designs.
And a little something I whipped up yesterday!
I’m sure I left our a few, but where would the fun be if I revealed everything? Class is on December 9th…come play with me (and take care of that pesky holiday shopping.)
So last week, I was off to the airport, to go to Guatemala. Sometimes, as we saw with my Dewd tile, things don’t always work out. From the time we left the house to the time we got to the gate, the plane filled up, and I didn’t get a seat (oh, the joys of flying stand-by.) So I drove home.
Strangly enough, I did not actually have a Plan B (very unlike me.) I decided to make the best of the “alone time” to start on my major rework of my home studio space. It was starting to not be much of a work space anymore, but more of a hoarders paradise.
Panoramas make the room look a little creepy. I am currently over half way done, so I’ll show you a little piece for now, so you can monitor my progress.
I actually had to wait for the trash to get emptied today, and a load out to the shop, so I can finish loading out what is getting tossed, and what is getting donated. I am pretty pleased so far, and have been concentrating on putting things away when I bring them in here, not just piling them on my workbench. It was starting to look like this all the time:
I am grateful to have this lovely space, but I have not been taking very good care of it.
And, since I hadn’t planned to cook for Thanksgiving, I treated myself to dinner out. I live across the street from a very large Indian Casino (Pechanga) and I made a reservation to eat this:
It’s a good thing I had other nice stuff for you to look at!
And, I know I promised this a long time ago, but with all the construction going on in our backyard I wasn’t able to get it done until now. Glass Pens. Coolness.
Still learning to edit videos. Still learning to speak English most days.
Have a great week!
