With apologies to Fancy Pants for taking so long, I've finally finished the "surprise" for correctly guessing that I took the bracelet photo on top of the stove. Here it is - your own set of friendly skull earrings! FP, please email me your mailing address. The blog email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks to everyone for playing my little side game!
So I finished all of the little skulls I made a couple days ago. I thought it would be more efficient to do them all at once that way, but by the second hour of polishing all of them, I was ready to keel over from sheer boredom. I must re-think my strategy there, the next time, or at least put on a video of something...
A big "Thank You" for all of the new entries to my Little Something Wicked Giveaway. As I mentioned in the comments, I'm not going to keep posting my own comments there, in case I need to use the random number generator, but it's been fascinating learning a little bit about the interests of other beaders and knitters (and people just interested in these topics). Once again, The Short One will be (theoretically) picking a name out of hat Wednesday evening, before he toddles off to bed. I will post the winner once he's safely tucked in. If you have not yet entered and would like to, please go here.
I am an intellectual property lawyer by training and have a background in English Renaissance literature. I love science fiction. I primarily watch Sesame Street these days and find myself humming "Pop Goes the Weasel" at odd moments (guess why). I can happily eat ice cream in the middle of winter when the wind chill is 20 below 0. I have been making beads and designing jewelry since 2007.
