would it be wrong
if i said that all i want to do right now is make necklaces??
i'm half joking. but mostly serious. i've been playing around with making them [using shrinky dinks]. the peace sign one was for a friend's birthday. she's a former new yorker fashionista living in marin county who doesn't NEED anything. and she's very busy working with organizations working towards peace. so she got a peace one.
and then i made myself some rainbow ones out of scraps.
if there was a way for me to make a living doing this i might seriously contemplate dropping everything else. [or if i could land that job naming colors - or color trendcasting].
do you remember shinky dinks? i forgot how absolutely fun they were. i'm using them for a project [this is a top secret project that i'll reveal probably latter this summer?], and am having the best time. it's like a little bit of magic goodness. draw, punch hole, put in oven, ooh and ahh as they shrink. [although you do have to keep an eye on them while they shrink and curl up so the ends don't end up stuck together].
maybe i'm trying to surround myself with rainbow goodness [above my daiso haul]. it feels like there is a funk front that just won't clear offshore. i just can't seem to shake it. maybe it's the endless wintery rainstorms we keep having [you would not think it's JUNE round these parts]. maybe it's the fact the little has reverted to earlier wake ups this last week and a half. i'm hoping it's a phase and she goes back to her former ways. [i'm seriously NO GOOD at 6am. and 5:30. G R O A N].
in sort of amazing press news... i'm in the italian flash art magazine. i can't believe that show will come down in 6 days.
oh ! if you are local i'm teaching a printmaking with out a press class at San Franciso City College Continuing Education... out at Fort Mason - it will start June 11th - 5 weeks.... more info here .
bye. i'm going to go dream about my shrinky dink necklace empire !
