I am all about using my every day ephemera. No combing the antique stores for vintage photo to add butterfly wings and dunce caps to. No weird vintage medical or botanical illos. That is not a record or influence of observing my day. And for fuck sake it has all been done already. I want to use my own junk mail and photos and receipts.
Or Easter candy wrappers as the case may be…
I am writing this from my phone. How awesome is it that I can blog from my phone anywhere, like in the car, or on the John. I swear I am not blogging this from the John. I am however hanging out in the living room, don’t want to go downstairs to the studio computer where all the photos live. So today I am giving you 5 images from my phone that encapsulate my week.
No. 5: Size matters
I am at that point in my ceramic study where I am trying to get a feel for how big to make my mugs. Shrinkage happens. What I think is reduculously huge, turns out to be on the big side of average. The mug on the right was laughably large when I pulled it off the wheel. So here I am recording scale of my new carved mug so I can see how it shrinks once finished.
No. 4: glass feathers
I am making some fused glass feathers for a wind chime. Yes I am still making tons of glass puddles. But while I am working through my stash of broken pieces to melt, I am making this.
No. 3: cats stealing the dog bed
No. 2: I made yarn this week

No. 1: my favorite journal page this week
I am working through a month long journal challenge. Check it out on my Instagram feed.
Off to paint more pages… what are your Friday 5 today
I am having one of those days…
Paying the bills makes me grumpy… I have a feeling I am missing something major.
I got turned around 3 times today running errands. And here in Cary that means driving in circles within circles.
I ended up going to 3 different grocery stores because despite having a list, I kept forgetting shit. I was totally cruised by a creepy dude on the gluten free isle.
I came home to find the front door WIIIIIDE open. Luckily no one escaped and everything is intact. But searching my home with the phone ready to connect 911 did not add joy to the grocery errands fiasco. However I am grateful for my relatively crime free neighborhood.
I am having weird glitchy things happening with many of my online tasks today.
So without any visuals. I am letting this be my post for today since my computer fu is pretty iffy at the moment. Off to huff my White Angelica essential oil (I call it my not-my-circus-not-my-monkeys oil) and fondle yarn.
