putting a spin on it.

>> Friday, January 27, 2012


after digging out from under 30+ orders (thank you, belle chic!), i was going to take a little bit of a break because my hands are finished.  kaput.  destroyed.  however, i couldn't stop fiddling around with some of the new supplies i ordered and came up with a new ring design.

i have to admit that i am defeated when it comes to the spinner ring that i so want to learn how to make.  right now, it just doesn't seem like it is going to happen, so, i thought about the aspects of the spinner ring that i like and made my own simplified version.  you can see them above in a stack, and below on it's own!  using sterling wire and tiny 14K and copper tubes, this is my own take on it!  the silver is a perfect foil to the warm tones of the 14K and copper - and all day, i've been spinning the little tubes around and around.  while it might not be a true spinner ring, these are definitely fidget rings in their own right.  take a look at them here.

addicted.

>> Thursday, January 26, 2012



we all have our vices and this song sums it all up perfectly. yes, perhaps i am not addicted to illegal substances (i have had some pretty sinful chocolate though) i do have some weaknesses....

- sushi
- lunches with L
- chick flicks
- great songs with great lyrics
- iPods
- earl grey tea
- epic novels
- really salty chips
- driving fast
- texting
- boots
- purses
- cuddling with my kid
- unrequited love stories

this song is pretty awesome - especially in the car booting down the highway.

now i'm off to do some exercise. wish i could get more addicted to that. sigh.

camel.

i am currently coveting the bag in the upper left hand corner of this treasury and it inspired a search for other things "camel" coloured. quite fruitful, don't you think?
