Some Frou Frou Ideas

Here are a couple of ideas I have been toying with. I just took all of my glitzy junk rhinestone jewelry bits and placed them on the back of an old hand mirror and the top of a glass jewelry box. These two pieces are visual mish-mashes of sparkly kitsch. I haven't glued the jewelry bits in place yet - I'm still playing!

Whaddaya think?

College Life

Sorry for the bloggery hiatus. I think perhaps I've been recovering from the shell shock of moving cross country in the sweltering heat of early August to find a place to live close to campus and lately, settling into college life. Whew! What a transition! But a much needed one. I can't say I've fallen in love with Long Island yet, but I am adjusting to the rhythm of life meted out in semesters and the weekly workload expected of a first year grad student of dramaturgy.
After a summer of inactivity creative-wise, I've also managed to work on a few smallish projects this past month. I FINALLY finished the Sami bracelet kit Karin sent me from Sweden:

I had a cold last weekend and worked on a cross-stitch pattern of a medievallish gryphon I found on an Italian embroidery site - I'll post a picture of it later.
