KD tells me I need to get off my ass and post more. Yikes. No pressure. Love yah KD. ha ha ha ..
No sob stories, but we’ve been remodeling and my art’s been boxed up during the remodel. Honestly, since remodeling, I’ve *also* been afraid to make a mess! Last night I gingerly pulled out a few things to work on. I’m sloooowly getting used to my new ‘digs’ (where once I used to spread out across the floor, make art and big messes). I’ll get used to it I’m sure. The new living room looks awesome and am very happy. I just miss my mountain of crafty stuff by my side.
So, for my birthday I got a brand new soldering iron to make those way cool microscope slide pendants I’ve been seeing all over the internet. My husband was a little hesitant about getting me one. He caved and got it, but only as long as I use safety goggles. I thought forgoing fashion was a small price to pay for making way cool soldered pendants. 😉 I’ve been working on mini drawings to fit within the slides. They’re coming along nicely, but I’m waiting until I have a page of them before making the pendants. (I also thought they might make nice rubber stamps. Hmm. Next project.) Here’s a sneak peek at the art so far. I’ll post a couple of the test collage pendants I made as soon as I can. By the way, soldering was tough, stinky, and hard to get used to. But, the pendants are pretty cool once done. If you are starting out, hang in there. It gets easier.
