Tatted lace jewelry in progress

A handful of the tatted lace bracelets I've been making. These still need clasps.

This is what is currently on my needle. It's a frilly version of the above bracelets.

A gift

Last weekend my grandma turned 90 years old. She is my last remaining grandparent, and has little need for much in the material world these days. She is a devoted catholic who went to church 6 days a week, until the Bishop took away the priests at surrounding churches and now has one priest servicing four different churches. I tried to think of something I could do for her, the mother of 13 children and grandmother of countless grandchildren and great grandchildren. A Rosary was the only thing I could think of that she would actually use and enjoy.

I found beads that I thought she would like, I found the two metal parts required for a rosary, and I took my spool of wire and went to work. Yes, you read that right, I made every single tiny little link in this thing by hand. (including the o-rings) It took me somewhere near 10 or 12 hours to complete. 28 figure 8 links, 59 beaded links and 4 o-rings.

When I gave it to her and told her I made it, she nearly cried and just smiled and said "how thoughtful". Then I told her that I didn't have it blessed, because I thought she would like to have that done in her own church. She just gave me a proud grin. It really made my day to see her so happy, and to see the way her face lit up when she got hugs from my kids.

Woodshop Creations Logo and Card

This is the logo and business card I made for my dad's business.

My brand logo

This is a logo that I made for myself. My husband and I have a million ideas for what to put this label on. It is pronounced "feel it", English humor. It's about how things make you feel, a texture, a color, a phrase... I do a lot of things in my life because of how it makes me feel. I pick out my clothes for the day based on how I feel, I pick my meals based on how I feel, I do my art based on how I feel, and I especially pick my music based on how I feel. Whatever you do in life, you need to feel it, it's about experiencing life through our senses... it's about EXPERIENCING life, not just floating through it.

Recipe Book

 This is a recipe that I made up and a friend helped me name it. I made this page (and several other pages) for a cookbook I made for my mom.
This is the cover of the cookbook

*Again, I'm not sure why blogger changes the colors on some of my work, those grapes are a nice purple and the green doesn't look right on here either.
