Our first Valentine's Day after we got married he told me I could finally get a dog. After few weeks of searching we welcomed Tor into the family.The second one we went out for dinner he surprised me flowers and chocolates. I might just try surprise him this year. I sent love note to hopefully be published in Folio Weekly here. I'll have to put my thinking cap on.
In the photo is my newest creation,a large clay heart with roses in honor of the Holiday.Its set with glass hearts and silver chain and a toggle.

I came across a project for sequin covered wooden beads [here]. This project I wanted to try immediately. I found the strung sequins for a dollar and I all ready had other jewelry making supplies for these earrings.

I'm very sad about my Grandfather and hopeful at the same time. It feels so unfair, but in the end all I can do is be present and love him everyday. I spent Christmas day with him, it was wonderful. I have so many wonderful memories of my Grandfather I treasure each one like gold. My father told us as children he never really got the chance to know his grandparents. I am thankful for him keeping them in my life.

The butterflies I made are sculpted from Fimo polymer clay. The wings are translucent. It took me a few tries to find a method that worked. My first idea was based loosely on making the pieces fit together.
