Day 266 – on the road again

by Shannon

We left the shop yesterday at 8:00PM, drove the the cities (4.5 hrs with snack and potty break for the kids), spent the night in a hotel, woke up 6 hours later to buy some inventory, popped over to MOA to make some Grinches at Build a Bear workshop and then drove home (another 4 hrs) again. Before we left, I made earrings out of some parts sitting in my repair box.

by Shannon

These little bees have their own summer feeling. It appears to be a trend that I’m on lately!

Days 250-255 – post when you can!

by Shannon

My 3rd Annual Opener Art Festival was on Saturday. The show was definitely a success! My week was more of a wreck… One night I forgot my phone, the next it was dead- then I was too tired to post – and finally, no Internet at home and the phone never had reception out there.
Anyway, I’m going to catch up with these two pics – crochet chain necklace, adjustable Celtic bead necklace, Dala horse earrings, Dala horse bookmark, fisherman earrings and 2 pewter bookmarks!

Day 242 – mystery braid

by Shannon

I bought some kits to try out for different workshop ideas. This one is supposed to teach you how to make a mystery braid out of a strip of leather with 3 symmetrical cuts lengthwise – the ends are still attached. I did accomplish making it into a bracelet. Te problem is I couldn’t follow their directions. I did it my own way an I probably cannot teach kids to keep twisting until it works!

Days 237 & 238

by Shannon

When u packed for our mini vacation, I grabbed a bowl of leftover bead off the table as I rushed out the door. As it turns out, there was beads, some stringing materials and not much else in the bowl. Yesterday, I made another howlite skull bracelet.
Today, I made a couple of bracelets with howlite peace signs. Now that my phone has charged sufficiently, I can catch up again!

Day 236 – more of Bella’s baubles

by Shannon

My B has been asking for post earrings amid her other requests. Her ears homes are still fairly new, so weight is always a concern. The last time I ordered supplies, she picked out the sterling findings in a few options. I thought something to match her Halloween stuff would be fun.
Her response…”so now I’m a Vikings fan?!?”
