Oh my. Did you do any patterning while you were making these. Our Barony is always looking for period toys to make to donate to the Queens chest. As the A&S minister I try and share kits with the group to help them make toys to this end. These are fine examples of exactly the type of things that are perfect.

I bought 2 of the key chains. I had planned on Bringing Markers so we could decorate them together. Since that didnt happen I was Mugged by My Teenager.  Smiley
And Bacon makes every thing even doing dishes.

I recived from Strawberryh today.
Here we have: a bacon washcloth, lots of pretty fibers for needle felting Grin, a key necklace, a ring that actually fits Shocked, note cards, and a cute little doodle guy.

A close up of the pretty ring.

Thanks so much Strawberryh I love it all.

After dealing with Lice in the passed we learned a few things. One a electric lice comb rocks. it is a bug zapper run on a battery. two Mayo! either hair Mayo (in the ethnic section of the hair isle or Sally's) or mayo from your fridge. and last but not least Hair dye. look up all of these and how they work.

We came back from family with lice...so we comb everyone's hairs with the metal comb morning and night....And we all smell vinegar, lavender, tea tree, spearmint and geranium EO!! I've cut all my dreads (I had 5 baby dreads) and I almost have an undercut, lucky my kids don't have much hairs, in the end!

I found the nearest PO and it's faisable to talk to it so I'm super happy! I'll post this week. I had an idea yesterday so I'll see if I have everything on hand first.

edit: I can't find the gallery! :S

I think that Silentblair can't count and as a result I got the biggest most awesome package EVER!
It arrived Sat while I was away camping. on Monday morning my husband was hoovering while I was matching socks. and he said to me "I CAN'T TAKE IT ANY MORE! YOU HAVE TO OPEN THIS NOW! IT SAY"S IT IS BIGGER ON THE INSIDE!"
I had to laugh. as a result I let him help me open it.

This is either going to get me laughs or shot on the Archery range. But I am willing to take a chance because this hat is to amazing not to wear!

Now this one is cool two fold one because Ash rules and two because it is a ice bag cover.
Myself and my daughter need ice and heat packs often and you should never apply either straight to your skin. Ice bag covers are a great way to deal with this, and this one is cool with out even having any ice in it.

This is the Stupendous, amazing, awesome scarf it is from my favorite art piece, so far, on Dr Who. I love Van Gosh and I love Dr Who, so when they combined these two things I went nuts, and she did the coolest thing this a spool knit (I think) to get the fire effect. My husband went "oh wow honey, this is one of the coolest things ever, and it is so you." I must say between this and my white and blue dragon shall I will be the coolest dressed nerd on campus and that is not easy to do when you are 40. And it is just girly enough to keep my husband from steeling it too.

Now as you can see This is by far the most spoiled any one I know has been in a while. I feel like I got three larges
And I opened it on a good day for getting goodies, because my daughter has beed yelling at me all day she has Strep, a UTI, and a Flu and as a result is in more pain the her normal pain and her Dr did her paper work to get a handicap parking pass and a handicap state ID so she is not in a good mood plus add the fact that she is a teen to this and wow I wanted to runaway for my own safety. But if I do I will be warm Smiley

 Champleve': Acid Etched Enameling
No I am both happy and unhappy with this piece.
I had a nice thin line drawing but then I would out we were using fat paint markers, What I should have done was pulled out my knife and sharpened the marker point because then I would have been happier. But it is just different then I wanted. It is on a piece that is way to thin for a brute like me If I do this again I will work on thicker pieces. also with a thicker piece I can use a blow torch if i don't put to many layers on the front.

now because this involves a kiln I do not foresee myself doing more of this any time soon. however it was fun as heal and I might consider assembling the frame work a month before the next glass & Metal symposium and then taking the glass to fill it in. because then I can pre-glue my wire down because that was the hard part it with Issac the air was to moist of the glue to dry and I didn't have a solder station to use. The design is a strawberry with a Celtic triscal in it on the shell of a sea turtle and I did what in Illumination is called a Diapering technique (I don't know what the term would be called in Glass work.

This is what I did in MO. While camping in Issac.
it is on copper I sawed out the willow then using powdered glass I filled it in. I fired it with a blow torch.
The thing I like the most about this project is that it is easy to do and I can do it with minimal shopping. I am buying a Jewelers saw as soon as I have the money, but a basic coping saw with really tiny blades will do and very small drill bits. water mixed with the powdered glass (fine partial mask was worn) and for the acid just water, vinegar with salt, Baking soada and water for the base and water for a clean, and sand paper. things I can get easy. and I already have the torch and I even can grind some of my lamp working glass.

Hi I just got back from a camping trip so I haven't been online while gone. I was at an SCA event. It was a glass and Metal work symposium.  I will post in crafters my finished projects. Smiley
