Wow am I wound up today. I feel like I'm in hyperspeed. I was out with my sis and niece today and I think I actually had more energy than the 4 year old! I can't remember that ever being the case before. I finally was able to get out for a walk this morning after being off for 3 days due to weather. That definetly helps my mood. It was fairly warm today to at about 32 degrees and no wind or rain and lots of sun.

I worked on my Christmas cards this afternoon. I did not make my own. I bought Shoebox funny ones like we always send out. I love the sense of humor in those cards.

The pic is of my polymer clay faux opal technique I started playing with yesterday. I kinda used the process outlined in Polymer Clay Cafe magazine but didn't have one of the materials they called for so I tried a substitution and really like how they turned out. The black ones were done yesterday and the white ones this morning. I actually meant to do something different with the ones this morning but I totally blew through and forgot a step. I still really like how they turned out. The pic doesnt really show the depth or the sparkle all that well. I'm going to make them into earrings and pendants. I embedded sterling silver loops into everything before I baked them so they're ready to go.

My tub is installed! It looks great. Now we need to get the cement board up and start working on tiling the surround. I'm so anxious for this to be over and just relax for a really nice soak. I'm also trying to decide how I want to decorate the room. It has always been fish since we moved in 10 1/2 years ago. I'm ready for a change but haven't picked anything for sure yet.

I'm off to church here in a bit. I love advent services. Its also our last rehearsal before our cantata performance on Sunday night. They choir is doing really well, but last week was a bit rough adjusting to singing from down front and getting used to those acoustics. Tonight should go well. I'm hoping they're serving a good soup in our meal before service starts. Something chunky and creamy. Yum.

  3. Thanks for stopping by Pam and ANg. Yes, I'm enjoying Violettes blog and message boards. Its so nice to find people who resonate with what I feel.
    My opals were polymer clay, ground up iridescent flakes used in paper making and UTEE to give it nice depth and finish.
