learn how to sew (read all 2 entries…)
I've signed up for classes

and took my first last week. I have a month’s worth coming up and I can’t wait. I actually made something on my first day.



make a mosaic
I've wanted to do this for years

I got some small mirror tiles and small colored tiles to break and add to my calavera project (a painted and decorated skull figure for Day of the Dead). while this isn’t just a mosaic project (the mosaic pieces are to add to the rest of the decorated skull figure), I feel like it’s definitely a start to making mosaic pieces.

I got a book at the used bookstore yesterday about making mosaics, so it’s definitely something I want to do soon. The book will serve as inspiration to take my mosaic idea further. I’d love to do a table top!

This one is gonna take a while!
