Dusting off the cobwebs......☺

Image
Apparently I only come  here occasionally to dust off the cobwebs. Well, it is March. More specifically, it is St Patrick's Day. That's not even why I'm here.  I know ... random.😏 I'm here to post a bunch of pictures of stuff I have been doing since the first of the year. I've mentioned before that I do post pics more regularly on Facebook . If you would care to click the ever so convenient link to my page and give it a like you would see stuff a lot more often😉 Ok...... here we go! I'm really enjoying making these! I've been doing a lot of wire weaving. This one is from a Nicole Hanna tutorial. So is this one with a slight variation due to a broken wire☺ And then there is this super cool but quite large birdie pendant☺ I've also been doing some clay work. This time around it was air dry paper clay. Talk about trying my patience! I am not good at waiting. The dry time about k

Merry Christmas 2017

It hasn't even been six months yet ~ and already another post☺

HaHaHa! I kill me☺ Just working on being a little more consistent with the blog. ~The sad thing is that I started this draft on Nov. 4th :( 😒 No need to rush a good thing.. right? Doesn't everyone take 6 weeks to write a blog post that consists of mostly pictures????? Ummm...no? 😞 Well, coincidently this necklace took over a year to complete. This is a beautiful lamp work heart by Juli Cannon. Every time I picked it up to work on it, I was at a loss as to what to do next. So I would set it back down;(    Even when I had it all finished something just wasn't right.   One tiny change and all was right with the world. Well, at least with this necklace☺ I made this using a tutorial. Much easier than it looks☺ Then I had an urge to use another of Juli Cannon's gorgeous lamp work focal beads, so I tied some knots☺ I do try to post pictures of new stuff semi-regularly on the Wigglebutt Creations Facebook page. So until I ca

And then this happened......

I was able to finish a couple more pieces recently. The first one here feels kind of like a little victory☺ I have had the focal and accent beads, and even the thread set aside for more than a year. Every few weeks I would look at it; but that's it... just look. So... a little over a year later, here it is☺ I do like the way it finally turned  out. This one took far too long to wrap because I kept  over thinking the bail. I finally convinced myself to just start doing something - anything and if I didn't like it I could just start over, not that big a deal. Once the pendant was done the rest came together pretty quickly. Still not feeling as creative as I would like,  but I'm moving in the right direction. I can do this!☺

And then.... as if out of no where......

a post appears☺ I have been feeling decidedly "uncreative" lately;~( Hoping to change that pretty quick like. This is from another tutorial by  Nicole Hanna She has some pretty awesome video tutorials too. Hoping the mojo returns pretty soon☺

Thank You ♥

A little bit of randomness........

I've been keeping busy, how about you? A lot has happened since the last time I posted. I won't apologize (again) about my lack of posting . I guess that is just ME☺ I've been gardening and making stuff (and cleaning - bleh)☺ Let's start with gardening. Gardening in Alaska in February and March starts in the greenhouse unless I was growing icicles☺ I started corn and basil super early. These were planted Feb 4. This is 2 weeks growth. I planted 1 tray each of tomatoes and peppers  on February 19th. The rest of my veggies got planted  on March 1st I will spare you the gory details of the many re-plantings☺   This is where we are today This makes me so HAPPY☺   And the fact that it got into the forties today didn't hurt☺♥ In other news I did finish this ~ Super happy with how this turned out. I love moonstone!   Also finished this~ I am even happier at how this turned out ♥ Then ther
