Family Craftherapy.

Coryn and I had some quality craftherapy time last night. I like her being grounded, I get a crafting partner. After homework, we stayed in the studio until almost 8pm! She made her first stuffed dog, I made my first bag! She's got plans for a whole line of animals (watch out Etsy, the holidays are coming!)
(Mable didn't make anything but she insisted on being in the photo, typical.)

Life gave us lemons...

We made lemonade!

Our new shelves look SOOO much better! (and I am kinda diggin the new plates more then the last ones too.) I guess that which does not kill Coryn, only makes our house stronger. Maybe she can move her distruction into the bathroom next.

Broken Plate Karma??

Well, this could be taken a few ways. Either the kitchen gods are getting back at me for breaking countless plates, or it was a gift from crafting heaven, OR it was just bad construction! Either way, every dish I own came crashing to the floor last night, but not before a stop on Coryn's head! The good news is, Coryn has a hard head, and you will be seeing a lot of new turquoise work from me! I had been looking longingly at those plates for a mosaic (and a few necklaces) anyway. Luckily I had a few unbroken plates in the basement that have gotten a new life as dinnerware!

Here is my first set of brooches. I am working on a belt buckle and a mailbox for Etsy too! I applied to be a part of Handmade Arcade, an indie craft fair that takes place on the second Saturday in November in Pittsburg. Cross your fingers! (Thanks Annie!

I think that all of the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival posters hanging at work have gotten to my head. I see a whole flock in my future...
