It occurred to me that designing with paint is silly, when my medium is beads.   Not finished, but you get the idea

Taking a cool down. Cat food is soaking, today’s pieces are glazed and drying or glazed and waiting for more glaze.  Still not happy with the groundwork for the plaque piece.  This is why I don’t do traditional art.  I’m way better in digital or jewelry mediums.

WAIT.

.

WAIT JUST A MINUTE

:LIIIIIIIGHTBUUUUULB:

omg why didn’t I think of that BEFORE?!
(NOPE,not gonna share, just gonna get to work and then show the final result later)

Can’t stop, won’t stop: Protesters in Ferguson rally again, seeking justice for Mike Brown. More than a month and a half after his death, his killer, Darren Wilson, is still a free man. (Pt 2) 

Because it wouldn’t be a protest in Ferguson without fuckery from the police. A driver plowed his car through protesters, grazing several and running over a young boys foot. Beyond taking several hours to transport the boy to the hospital, they took even longer to arrest the motorist. Who did they not wait long to arrest? Two of the protesters who had been documenting the altercation for the world to see. If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. #staywoke #farfromover #nojusticenopeace

Today’s projects, including the just keep swimming turtles for the plaque

Today’s projects, including the just keep swimming turtles for the plaque

4 New pieces in the shop (plus 1 additional of an existing piece).
If you liked the Red Hearted Owl spoon- there are now 2 of them available in the shop. (Like it but want to get one for a friend, now you can!)
I’m looking forward to making more of the zebra pendant.  As zebra stripes are the awareness pattern for Ehlers Danlos, I like the idea of creating pendants that people can wear to wear their “ribbon” without having to sacrifice style to do it!
.
Getting ready to start laying out today’s projects, INCLUDING at least 1 piece of spoonie wall art!

I am exhausted and in pain.  Today’s tasks are primarily creative and restorative.

.

-Work on first wood plaque
   -spoons are loaded and glazed
   -figure out background
   -add lettering

-edit and list new pieces that are ready to go

-lay out days new creations

-work on glaze layers on pieces that need more.

-Sleep/Nap/whatever

Text

So I tried painting one of the wood slabs but I ran into 2 problems:

#1: I couldn’t get the color just right
#2: I didn’t like the way it turned out texture wise.

.

I think I’m going to look for scrapbooking paper to a theme to lay on it instead.  Then mount the spoons on top of THAT.  The turtles are set in painted spoons and are glazed and drying now.

.

We’ll see how I feel about it tomorrow.

OK! I have 25 new spoons bent, looped, and ready to wash, soak and go!

.

I have 3 large boards, 5 thin metal (anodized metal) pieces, and 7 small wood blocks all ready to become spoon-related wall art!

.

Tonight, I’m going to work on finishing the glaze pools on 3 existing pendants, set a few more, and then… work on some wall art to put up in the shop as well.

.

Branching out ya’ll.  

.

.

But first, to feed the animals and set new spoon heads to wash then soak in vinegar.

naturalprose replied to your photo: “Thrift stop one: no spoons, but 2 weird Mary statues”:
:-P She’s kinda got a…Betty Boop lip goin’ on there.

I know right? They’re both kind of.. odd looking- which is cool. I bought them, because nothing I have (I collect them) looks anything like it!

Kris is away at Women of Faith, a friend got free tickets and asked if she wanted to come.  

.

So since I have the house to myself today, I’ll be getting my comfort meal (roast chicken and a pint of ben n jerrys), swinging by Big Lots to dig for stuff for spoon projects, and grab more of my glaze stuff at Michael’s.  IF I have any spoons left after that, I may still try to swing by another thrift shop to do a spoon dig too, but I’m not banking on having the energy.

.

Now I’m just trying to decide if I want to use up 2 spoons to take a shower, or if I can get by with a headband and deoderant.  :Shrug:

"I am a big girl. A voluptuous, curvy, dress-wearing lesbian. I love my body; it’s the only one I’ll ever have. I eat a lot of greens and work out and drink gin martinis and put M&Ms in my froyo and sometimes I don’t do anything but watch Project Runway. I am allowed to look sexy, feel sexy, and be in love. I am worthy of all of those things, and so are you. Own your good and bad, and all the scary parts that you’ve been covering up because it is yours and no amount of judgement can tell you how to love your body. In the words of Sonya Renee, the body is not an apology. You are magic.
