IT'S ALL ABOUT THE ALCOHOL.
So...I'm still working on things for the upcoming craft show. I made more necklaces and I'm not sure how thrilled I am with them. I love little houses. I thought these bits from Tim Holtz's Idea-Ology would make good roofs.
And they DID!
the Love Shack.
I have it displayed on a wine bottle.
Love Shack. Wine Bottle. Get it??
I just amuse the heck out of myself some days.
It's pretty kitschy, though.
Hence, the naming The LURVE Shack (said with attitude)
Then I made this.
It's not right.
The jingle bell is too big.
The red and green appendage...well...it just ain't natural.
I put it away.
I got it out this morning.
Laughed myself silly at how ridiculous it looked.
Then I changed it up.
Smaller dangly bit.
I'm still not sure that I just love it.
My daughter says it's "almost."
Then because I have alcohol ink still out on the counter
I did this:
This was a hideous gold color.
It was part of a crazy pair of earrings that I somehow acquired.
I covered it in alcohol ink.
That stuff sticks to anything with a hard surface.
You can recolor anything metal.
It's great fun!
I added this piece to it.
And these pieces.
These things look like snails.
They are busted bits of jewelry.
I ended up with this:
I think it's kind of spiffy.
The ultimate in recycling.
Or bad taste.
If I pop open that bottle of wine,
it may start to look better.
