You Know What to Do!

One of my favorite quotes.  You know what to do.  You know what your music is.  Go create!

Every single one of us can do things that no one else can do - can love things that no one else can love. We are like violins. We can be used for doorstops, or we can make music. You know what to do.  - Barbara Sher

Stop living like there is something wrong with you

Funny Video of Me Poking a Tin!

I had originally loaded this on Facebook, but when I wanted to point it out to someone else, I thought this would be a better place to have it.  If you’re interested in purchasing my window tins, but aren’t sure how sturdy the plastic window is, I understand!  I’ve bought tins myself with those flimsy windows that seem like they’ll fall off in a slight breeze.  So this video is for you!  I poke at my window tins, demonstrating that they are pretty sturdy!

For some reason, it won’t let me embed it, so just click here to see it!

Boston Mosaics

I was in Boston last week and we walked across the Charlestown Bridge to get to the USS Constitution (which I highly recommend visiting).  After crossing the bridge, we stumbled upon the Paul Revere Park.  It’s a gorgeous park.  And the entrance to the park had some beautiful mosaics.

Now that I’m home, I’ve done a little research to find that there were a few mosaics that I missed, unfortunately.  I also learned that the mosaics were created by artist Susan Gamble, who also created many of the wonderful hand made tiles included in them.  Since I do both mosaics and create tiles, I found these mosaics inspirational in numerous ways!

If you are ever in Boston, make time to stop by the Paul Revere Park.  And spend more time exploring than I did!

Meanwhile, here are a few photos to enjoy:

New Badge Holder

I use a badge holder at my day job.  I had created the one on the left several years ago, and it has taken a beating!  So it was time to create a new one, especially since I’m in a bit of crafting withdrawal at the moment!  (I haven’t been able to craft for a while!)  I really like the colors on the old one.  They always seemed to go with what I was wearing (which is typically jeans).  We’ll see how the new one works out.  I may have overdone the ribbons….. Wait, can you over-do ribbons??  :)
