BIRDS OF A FEATHER

MABEL just couldn't take it!
(make sure you squint so you don't see the dust!)


A new bird flew in to meet the round robin !


Lenna's wonderful journal!

Esther's spoiling me with gifts of paper, atc's, bits, bobs, and


BEADS!

Ok....seriously, I came home to work on some jewelry today because I'm stressing over this party tomorrow night. I should have known it wasn't going to be good when Mabel was facing down, instead of up, really not a good sign. Maybe I talked myself right into it, but nothing worked out.....you know, did you ever have that day when you can't even figure out how you EVER made jewelry, cause every move is just awful, I mean, cutting wire in the wrong spot so the entire piece falls apart, crushing beads with pliers....I hope you know what I mean. So that was the end of the work session. Thank goodness some sweetness flew in from my friend Lenna, who I am working on an altered book exchange with. Of course she is done ahead of me, BUT, I have started, and you will soon see. Her journal is magical, and the marks on the paper are lyrical in movement, just like some of her backgrounds....just amazing! And sweet Esther to my rescue too.. I ordered a pair of earrings from my famous french jewelry designer and she sends me things like it's Christmas....I squeal when I open her packages......all kinds of precious little things for me to play with! Oh! And along with that Lenna sends me this little cutie bird to warm my heart and soul, and she's staying close to round robin!! So I didn't make anything today with my hands, but I made memories for a lifetime!! Thanks friends!!

I have to say I could TOTALLY relate to your experience with nothing working out...I have been there way too many times with nothing to show after spending too much time trying to make something work out! BUT...look at those goodies that came to cheer you up! Lenna's journal is incredible... I'm just blown away by it (I enlarged it to see all of the great details). And the new bird friend...does he/she have a name? And look at that sweet Esther! Her ATCs are amazing of course...and the beads are wonderful (sure love those coins and the religious medalion). Good luck with last minute preparations for your show!

I so know those moments - when the wire wrapping looks like this was the very first time; the beads crack ... Then I know it is better to walk away from it. But didn't you receive a whole lot of goodness in the mail! Lenna's book is awesome and I can't wait to see yours. As for Esther's goodies - well, they speak for themselves - wow! Those ATCs!!! You lucky girl, Sharon!

That was me yesterday ... sewing I must have broken 7 needles . Sometimes you need to walk as I did for about an hour then it all came together.

Terri Kahrs said...

Sounds like a few "hugs" arrived just when you needed them the most! Good luck with your show tonight!!! Love & More Hugs, Terri xoxo

I'm sending positive thoughts to you so that today and tonight go really well!!! Poor Mabel!! See what stress can do. I'll send her positive thoughts too!! I hope your day and especially tonight are fabulous!

I am so there with you on the feeling! I was having it last night...of course it usually comes out about the same time that I am on an intense deadline and it is a command performance. My muse doesn't like to be rushed apparently. But sweet treats from Esther would make me insanely happy too! Enjoy the day! Erin

wishing you the best for a successful show tonight! Mabel is too funny...all the great gifts should help to boost your spirits from all the aggrevation...we've all been there!

Joella said...

oh you poor thing...I'm so glad your day ended on a happy note! Ester's right, it's best just to walk away when we have days like this! Tomorrow is another day:)

sharon said...

Thank you everyone.....Mabel is flying straight now!

Barbara Lewis said...

Oh, I have definitely been in your shoes in the studio. It usually happens when I feel rushed, which is a bad way to enter the studio. But the goodies you received from friends more than made up for your frustration!

Lenna Andrews said...
