Living La Dolce Vida
The sweet life. That means different things to each person. It most likely includes family, food and fun. Something satisfying to do on a regular basis. Maybe that's exercise. Or music.
What does the good life symbolize to you?
These little earrings are the result of me thinking about "GOOD" and "LIFE" - how do we create that for ourselves.
How do we express that? Is it something you think about?
These are a translucent resin with the words "GOOD" and "LIFE" inside. A little reminder, or maybe a statement of achievement.
Someting to seek, that's different for everyone. What does the good life mean for you?
Wow, finally Friday! I'm so happy to see the end of the week arriving. Folks at the day job have been sick this week, so there hasn't been a full crew on board. That means the ones still standing have a lot to do. It's been a rough, difficult week.
I started another book by the spanish author I've been reading, it's titled "The Fencing Master" and it's set in the 1880's in Spain. I really enjoy the atmosphere in his books, and there's a lot of detail about styles, clothing and interiors that facinates me.
This weekend I have plans to clean up a bunch of resin pieces and get them finished, and to do photography and get them showing in the Etsy shops. It seems to take me forever to do the pictures and upload them. But until I do, no one can see what I've been working on, except me!
I really hope the weather holds this weekend so I can spend a little time out on the deck again, reading about the fine art of fencing with foil and grace. Who knows how that will inspire the outcome of my creativity time!
I have an idea to make some stick pins. I need to test my ideas out.
Oh - don't forget, if you want to be in the running to win one of my pewter charms over at the Art Bead Scene, leave a reply to the Studio Saturday post. The winner will be announced tomorrow.
