The weekend challenge is to make the following:
- One pendant incorporating a hummingbird.
- Pair of silver hoop earrings.
- One silver thumb ring.
- Sawing out an abstract drawing a friend designed and get it ready for enameling.
BUT before I can start all of that business I must attend the AKS Bead & Gem Show.
We can never have enough beads, right?
They will be at the Ponchartrain Center out in Kenner today until Sunday. They usually have a nice selection of beads although last time it wasn't as nice. I did manage to get a couple of strands. Okay...more than a couple. So go check it out and have fun!
Blogs I've been reading...
I was reading Zom Osborne blog about The Cult of Stuff which lead me to Leslie Herger's blog. Leslie started a blog about The Cult of Stuff. Basically it's about all the stuff out there targeting our insecurities and making us believe that we need stuff to improve our art, house, and appearance. It's everywhere!
So I'm reading her blog and at the same time making the realization that I don't need anything to make my art look better. My art looks fine! And I can use whatever I have. I don't need to run to the art store and unload my 40% coupon and then realize that I can't use it because the item is already on sale! Aargh! Sorry I digress. But then I see this on Leslie's blog...
Ooooh...I NEED THAT!
It's a POGO portable printer. Kicking it old school but in a new kind of way. It prints out pictures with an adhesive on the back. That way I can stick it anywhere. My friends better watch out! No telling where I might stick things. LOL! This would definitely make my art journaling a lot easier. Now isn't that ironic?
Leslie's right about how we are targeted and really don't need all that stuff. BUT it's so much FUN! As long as it doesn't make you unhappy or broke.
Happy hunting and have a fantabulous Friday!
