Summer 2011

I'm soooo not into this posting everyday stuff! Have made some pretty wedding cards and am trying to sell some of my recycled jean purses and wind chimes. Will try to get pictures up after my niece's wedding.

Never did well with diaries or journals...
so am not surprised I don't keep up with this blogging stuff!
Back early from Texas this year.
Family emergency.
In process of cleaning up the art cellar so I can start some new projects.

Pit Beads

"Art in My Garbage" is a favorite theme I deamed up.
All that "stuff" in the trash-bin surely has another life as an "art supply" - Yesterday the discovery was date pits ;-D
They scrub up well, have a nice rustic, "woody" look and make great beads when drilled with a fine dremel bit. Have also just discovered "sea beans", along with the lovely shells on the Texas beaches. The teeniest bit of baby oil shines them up nice. Avocados, apple seeds, prune pits, etc. can all be used as well. http://www.beachbeans.com/bean_descriptions.html
