May 4, 2012


The reference library is doing some reconstruction and I love, love, love, that outside on the protective plywood they have these beautiful word murals, rich with Canadian poetry as well as quotes from science and literature. I spent quite a time gazing at the walls. People surely thought I was mad.


Ah, keyboard cleaning. Something I do not often enough by the amount of crap I had to clean from it! It feels a lot better to have it nice and clean - it's just one of those things that when you are superbusy it rarely gets done.

Under Our Willow Tree


My confidence working with resin is growing. I completely encased a Thai chili in resin for making a pendant. I have been wanting to do this forever! Work with organic material and turn it into a pendant. I don't know why. Perhaps because it is so challenging. I took one step closer yesterday on Crafty Friday.

I love that you found poetry in reconstruction, that's totally cool that you were drawn in by that Jamie! Mad with love is okay mad!

Suzie that chili is absolutely GORGEROUS! I love it, so glossy and bright - amazing job!

I would have done the same thing Jamie! :)

Woah Shannon, at first I thought your keyboard broke, that would not be good. How cool you can do that and clean it? Awesome!

Thank you Shannon, I'm thrilled with how it turned out. As long as I don't destroy it when I cut off the toothpick, I'm pretty thrilled. I love that about resin, so glossy and shiny.

The wall was awesome and it reminded me of how much I love Canadian poetry!

Shannon, it totally looke like you wereplaying keyboard scrabble!

Wow, Suzie, that chili looks so cool! I love the way you're following your inspiration!
