Make something beautiful every day.

I've been trying to make a little something pretty every day, whether  it's a doodle, a bead thing, a paper toy, a painting or a cake. Today was this page of stampy farm animals made with tiny foam stickers I bought at the Dollar Tree.

Here is a little pendant I made. I molded the bird and heart from baked clay then textured them with gold paint. I've put some of my "makings" up for sale in my etsy shop.


I have peaches to make a pie but it's too hot to cook. Maybe tomorrow. What have you been making this summer? What new things would you like to learn how to do?

Best thoughts,


“Whether or not you can never become great at something, you can always become better at it. Don’t ever forget that. And don’t say, “I’ll never be good.” You can become better, and one day you’ll wake up and you’ll find out how good you actually became." ~ Neil deGrasse Tyson

I've spent most of this summer building new flowerbeds and I've done a lot of weeding and planting.
This fall is going to be quite different though--I'm going to be taking a couple of college classes provided that I can get registered late this afternoon or tomorrow.
The two classes I'm hoping for are (1) a class in fashion design which teaches you how to use pattern making software and perhaps (2) a class in short story writing. We'll see if it can be managed this week.
If I manage to get my classes, I've be involved in creative stuff the entire fall.

Those classes sound wonderful. I love short stories. And pattern making software sounds very interesting. The things you could make! Let me know how it goes!

You know what I'd most love to learn?
I'd really love both a carpentry course and a metal-working course.
I'm intrigued to see what you make next with your bead making.
