A gift for my mother

I am really enjoying soldering and creating fun pendants. This is one I made for my mother. She has it hanging from a ribbon on a glass jar. I painted the art using colored inks and gouache.

Paper Flowers

Yeah! I am so excited as I begin my new blog! This is a photo from May when I had a graduation party for my daughter. My mother and I made paper flower garlands to hang for my daughter's party. I strung all the flowers together with a variety a colorful ribbons. They are very easy to make. I used 6 sheets of tissue paper cut square in size. Next I accordion folded all the layers and tied them in the middle. Then I gently pulled apart the layers to make each flower.
