Back to jewelry basics

I’ve been lacking in posts due to a couple weeks of chaos- illnesses then power & water outages & work is busiest this time of year (which I discussed more on my records blog). The new blog has been a real creative commitment and is starting to feel good!
I’m typing this post from Vancouver in a quick anniversary weekend get away! Before I left I threw together the above jewelry with beads gathered from a going out of business craft store on Quadra (not a shocker but a few good scores for me). Silver hoops with recycled found beach glass beads i got when in Hawaii. A cool ant in resin pendant that i added a jump ring to & it’s ready to wear. The hope is to dive into resin work in Feb! (thing a day www. for 30 days of Feb details to come). Is the other an agate? Oriental gemstone pendent I added beads from Thailand to (thanks Barb & Terry).

MAKE SOMETHING EVERY DAY

Great Blue Heron vs. Balde Eagle

Well it was actually eagle vs. eagle the other day, in the driveway,  when I started yelling “They’re mating! They’re mating!” Corey has got some serious laugh leverage off that day. Man that was loud and violent. Damn foodchain.

Anyway-I’m typing this entry from the lanai as the sun sets on a breezy but sunny Monday. Temperature today 10 degrees. We don’t get the actual  sunset here but we do get the after pink glow and that’s niiiice.  Yesterday it rained so hard your underwear would be soaked getting to the car. The day before? Full sun and 13 degrees. LOVE Spring times.

There is in fact, a massive great blue heron on the ocean edge, feeding on the oyster bed.

I’m working on a balde eagle slideshow tonight. What are other 36 year old Canadian womyn doing today, eh?  This poses several technological issues and I am home without supervision, for the week. That’s polite code for  “my hunky nerd is in camp”. iPhoto lets me create the slideshow fairly easy tho I had issues adding music to the Hukilau slideshow (click on LINK) as there was no “option to repeat song”. So the awesome Hukilau song only lasted 2 of 6 minutes.  Then I export it to Youtube (if it meets their specks & has no nudity.. cough) and that can take an entire day now. It’s soo busy! Then often, the wordpress blog post won’t allow me to use this or that file type.

So fingers crossed, wish me luck. *she glugs her wine*
