Ok, so the sun is not in the sky today and it's cold, but I can think wishfully, can't I? And I didn't want to be "here" today actually. Today I needed to get out of the house. Even though we were out yesterday we were surrounded by friends, I needed some alone time today to just recharge. So I went to the post office and then off to the craft store, and just spent some time looking around. I picked up some new fancy papers to photograph on and some neat new polymer clay tools, which I hope will work with my porcelain just as well as polymer. Also, I saw that the Winter issue of Stringing is still on the shelves.
Above, a snapshot from the page in Stringing where my project "Mystified" is, on the right. On the left, I was very excited to see another designer's project using one of my beads! Ricky Talmage made this beautiful necklace called "Lilly in Autumn" with one of my Earth Elemental Goddess pendants, with silver and moss agate. It's quite wonderful! I have a close up picture at the top of his post of the same style and color of pendant she used, available in my Etsy shop. I am also playing with multicolored versions of these pendants, like the Water Goddess one below. What do you think?In honor of "Lilly in Autumn", today's song is by Lily Allen. I love her! And this is one of the first I had heard and is still one of my favorite songs by her. The song is "LDN" and it is about life in London. Someday I would love to go there, I think that is one of the places in the world I would love to visit. Maybe Japan too.
