It took us most of the day to make molds and work on Skinner blends. Her class taught me a lot about Skinner blends, manipulating canes, and applying veneers.
I actually made two Skinner blends but was drawn to the pink/purple Skinner blend for my first large bead...not quite sure why I have been in a pink color mood lately. I threw in a little turquoise color into my blend as well. But I have to say once I had my huge bead, I couldn't decide what to do with it. I think I wrestled with that for two to three days. I also created some earrings from the cane to match my necklace. The earrings will be included in my 52 Pair of Earrings Challenge which I am so behind on but have not forgotten.
It has been awhile since I've liked something that I have created. I was starting to wonder if my creative mojo was starting to run out...impossible! In fact, I signed up for a copper etching class through my wonderful friend Cat Kerr, called Inspirational Pendants through Shabby Cottage Studio. I can't wait to start! It had to take the back burner till I was done with Sarah's class...glad that it is an on-line class. Hoping to start that class this week, although my daughter is ready to have her baby anytime this week which could be an interruption, but one I will gladly take!
Well, Veteran's Day is celebrated today so I just wanted to give a shout out to all the veterans and their families...A HUGE thank you for your service and sacrifice!! It has been a weekend of celebrating for me...Marines's 237 Birthday (my hubby is a marine vet), my son passed a test for a possible job opportunity (he goes through the interviewing process this week), and Veteran's day! Thank goodness my hubby smoked some meat to celebrate...that should last me for a few days and less cooking for me!
Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!!
