Well, I was hoping to get good pictures today of the recent works I've completed, but the sun isn't cooperating. Hopefully later this week I will be able to spend some time in natural, bright light and photograph this stuff so I can get it listed in my shop. I really, really want to have some new, cool things listed for the October Promotion and also for the upcoming holidays. I also want to practice photographing this stuff so that eventually I get the skills to photograph my creations well and have a unified looking shop.
So, anyway, here are 3 pictures showing my current WIP and some recently finished projects. These photos were just taken with my iPhone, so they aren't anything great, but do give you an idea of what I have been doing.
This is a paw print lariat. I really like the way it came out and am going to do a few more colors and list them. I will definitely have to make one for myself as well as for my daughter. I just realized this black and teal lariat will be great for rooting on my football team, The Jacksonville Jaguars!!
These are two beaded, spiral weave necklaces. No clasp needed as they are long enough to go over my head and lay very nicely. The cream and blue one has ceramic beads and the white one has faceted red glass beads. The white one is for me... not only will it be good for Christmas, but it will also be good for when I'm rooting for my hockey team, the Detroit Red Wings!! Woo hoo!!!! Let's go Red Wings!
I'm still slowly working on my loom. I thought I would get a lot done on Sunday, but I was caught up in watching some new perspectives on what happened on 9-11.
Gosh, Sunday was such a tough day. My husband and I relived the events - this time with our kids. I hope that now that they are 12 and 10 years old, more of what they saw on t.v. has sunk in. They only asked a few questions, but seem to have been deeply riveted to what they were watching. I then shared with them where I was that morning and what I had been doing. I don't think I will ever forget. But I do have to admit that the new documentaries that we saw on Saturday night and Sunday, gave me a fresh perspective over how people are still coping with this tragedy.
