Just a quick post about what I've been up to over Christmas. I hope you all had a fabulous time, and that you aren't all mourning the utter lack of sparkle the way I'll admit I am, just slightly ...
If you follow my blog, you'll know I've only recently picked up my pencils again after a hiatus of many years. I've been having lots of fun drawing, and it was suggested to me that I might like to make some of the drawings into cards. So I did. ;)
These are the first batch, and a new batch of (different) cards are on their way. Anyone who has ever seen their artwork professionally printed will know how thrilled I was when I opened the box. It's the first time it's ever happened to me and it was almost like looking at someone else's work on those smooth, high quality cards - incredibly exciting! (Way more exciting to me than anyone else I showed them to, I'm sure!)
Then one of my lovely customers and followers mentioned that one of my drawings would look nice as a pendant, and that got me thinking ... a few supplies (and a right gluey mess, naturally - as it's me) later, and I now have glossy glass and silver encased miniature wearable artwork, like so:
Exciting, huh? Fear not (unless you hate my wirework), I'm still obsessed with my many - many! - reels of wire and still experimenting with it every chance I get. It's nice, though, to have one creative interest lead (back) to another. What diverse interests and hobbies do any of you have - and are they much more different to each other than mine? :)
