Spoon Flower here you can send your designs to have them printed on fabric, wallpaper or wrapping paper. They also have a design contest, which is like a new special video game for me. I have been brushing up on computer graphics and just make my first submission. I made the design to small, didn't give the file a cute name but I did get it in. If you would like to vote for me you can follow this lead -
There are lots of designs and you can vote for as many as you want. If you can't find my design, that's okay I will probably do this again. I might even think of a way to work polymer clay into the mix. In the mean time I am enjoying the distraction from my real work of turning out whistles.

This necklace was started years ago. I intended to fasten the pieces together with wire or sinew but it just wasn't coming together. I started working with jump rings more a few months ago. I bought a variety of sizes and didn't really have a use for the larger sizes. They were just the thing to finish this piece.
This is not a style that I am likely to pursue but is always good to see a piece completed, even if it take a few years.

Treat other with compassion even if you suspect that they are A-holes. Give them an opportunity to be better.

The flowers are from New South Wales so their carbon foot print is now great but it's a little bit of sun for anyone visiting my table.

|Little bug lockets and others with a Canadian dime.|
For those who think I am reaching for a way to tie bugs into Christmas. Your dame right, it was a stretch.

|I met myself on the way to Granville Island|
This is a selfi I took the other day. It is hard to believe that this is the middle of the city but this is my walk to Granville island in the winter when maintenance is being done on the seawall. If this was a video you would hear the roar of traffic not far away.
I am currently taking a little time away from the market to get ready for the East Van Cuture which a big deal for artists in this part of Vancouver.
