new work meet the maker

The Week Between

Ah, the week between Christmas and New Year is one of my favorites. I’m moving slowly here, after a few months of frenzied metalsmithing. My priorities have shifted from making 45 Copper Jewel Rings to making cartoon-themed lunches, playing with milk, and decorating paper clips. Yes, the work of this vacation is very serious. As my callouses soften, I’m looking forward to trying some projects and recipes I’ve been eying.

A little someone’s eighth birthday coming up quick and these little chickies will be made and gifted to her, per her request.

We’re going to make art with milk and food coloring because, wow, these colors are amazing.

I wanna make a couple of these cell phone charger pouches because they are totally awesome. And functional. And cute.

I think some doily luminaries would be a pretty addition to the dark winter evenings.

My girls would definitely appreciate these Angry Birds for lunch.

My mini clips are going to need an Artsyville-style face lift with washi tape. It’s very important.

I’m pretty sure these confetti eggs are gong to make our little New Year’s celebration way more fun.

Fried pickles are among my favorite foods, but pickle fries? Even better. These will be essential this week.

Happy Week Between!

    This is definitely a favorite time of mine, also…it’s a crafty week, a contemplative week, a deep soul-searching week…a cocoa-drinking week. For us, it’s shaping up to be a chicken pox week, too…wheeeeeee! Hope to see you sometime this winter, here or there…I like to be encouraged to come out of hibernation every once in a while (not that we have any snow yet to snuggle down under…what’s up with that?). Happy Between to you, too, m’dear!

    Glad you are getting to enjoy some down time, although with that list of good ideas I think your time is going to be fairly full! Happy New Year to you all! Em xx

    So many great plans! I hope you will continue making the copper jewel rings – even if not 45 of them in one go – it’s a gorgeous ring, and on my list of presents for myself at some point in the next year! :)
    Happy New Year!

    Hellooooo Amy! :) Hope you’re enjoying your days in-between, or mellandagarna as we say in Swedish! Loved browsing your links of inspiration, but the milk art just blew me away!! I do hope you post your milk art on your blog, if you attempt it?!

    Oh, also, the milk art reminded me a bit of paper marbling (although much wilder)? Like you can find inside the covers of old books? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paper_marbling

    Happy New Year!
