Today I was awfully depressed after not doing so well on my mid-term in college that I decided the best medicine was to create. I happened to have some scrap clay on my table and created these:
Two with the two openings I plan on putting pretty organza ribbons through and make into a pretty pendant necklace. Same with the one ith a single hole.
the one with the four curled corners will probably have a sterling silver chain at the top. Each bead, with the exception of the one on the bottom left has beads and dichoric glass beads on them. the blue double even has some swarovski crystals and a turquoise bead. I decided to put a flower and leaves on the one with the four corners and it came out really pretty.
This was just another of those abstract, let's see what comes out, sort of creation days. You never know what is going to come up when I am upset. LOLOL

This picture shows where I am right now. I have been in awe of Christi's work for a long, long time and the fact that she is so generous with her techniques is amazing to me. I am about three quarters done with this piece and I can't wait to get it totally done. I love dragons anyway, and this necklace has truly been a challenge, but I am getting there.
On top of that, I quit smoking!!! Yup, been 20 days now and I have no intension of going back. To say it has not been a struggle would be an udnerstatement, but there is no way I am going to allow the Nicodemon to get a hold of me ever again. Twenty days is quite an accomplishemnt for me so I just have to stand firm and all will be well.

Everything is nice and neat and DH had such a great idea. I was going to give away the entertainment center and he said,"Why don't you use it to store your craft supplies?" Well, gee, leave it to the man of the house to come up with a super solution. I thought I was going to have to move my crafting into the kitchen. LOLOL Behind the craft area that is in this picture is our two computers. Makes everything great and in one neat area. Now I can get back to doing some long overdue crafting. But WAIT, can't do that yet...Mom's moving day is in two weeks. THEN I can get back to playing (wink)

Being upset didn't last long as I chaulked it up to another learning experience and have convinced myself that my next attempt (which will be this weekend) will be even better as I have gained more knowledge.
I got tickled at my workout partner when I told her about my mishap. Her response was, "And now a moment of silence for the brutally murdered mermaid …………………………..” hehehehe Not only does this gal keep me motivated, but she has an awesome sense of humor to boot. Thanks Mila for making me feel better about my huge flub (smile).
All I know is that I am not giving up. In fact, it makes me even more determined to achieve this goal. Upward and onward (with a smile and a prayer)

Your encouragement and critiques are helping me more than you know.
Hopefully my next post will be clearer as I get closer to making her real.
Unfortunately I was not able to get a clear picture of this one, but it is the closest I have come so far. Still need work on eyes, but it is coming. The fact that I have come this far is amazing to me
