Sunday Post #30

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. 

Brace yourself. There is a lot that has been happening…

I’ve been away for much of the last three weeks with work and then the holidays. I spent the first week of my holidays sleeping, only getting up to feed myself and the cats and occasionally going off to the shops to forage for food. I spent the second week socialising, driving to places so I could socialise and spending money on frivolous craft-related things.

I went and saw 22 Jump Street which I can heartily recommend if you are in the mood for a great B grade silly comedy. I giggled and laughed my way through the whole movie and then dug out 21 Jump Street when I got home. I hope at least one of the mock sequels shown at the end is made into a movie as they looked really funny.

I have started doing a little jewellery making and here are the results of two bookmark kits from That Bead Shop. There were supposed to be gold leaves on the left one but I left them off as I thought this looked nicer. Please forgive my dodgy photo taking skills – the big teapot on the right is silver not gold but the light caught it at an odd angle.

I’ve also done some glass tile pendants of steampunk cats and skulls wearing hats. I got the images off CobraGraphics on Etsy. I had to crop them fairly closely as otherwise you would have seen a cat’s paw dragging the skull on the left off the paper and another cat’s tail swiping the steampunk cat on the right. Thank you Portia and Bronte for your “help”.

So what do you think? I’m giving myself an A for effort and maybe a B for execution as my headpin loops aren’t uniform yet. I bought some resin so the next thing is working out what to embed in it.
