that was bonnie; this is clyde

Here is the mate to the other poster below. It was harder to get his eyes to show up because of less contrast.

messing around with photoshop

I spent some time experimenting with artistic filters in Photoshop, and came up with this result. It is a portrait of a family member's dog. I had to create her left eye color where none showed due to lack of contrast. It's not perfect, but not bad for a first attempt, I think. It may make a nice poster if I ever decide to print it out in large size.

hello little blossom


I spied this tiny flower way down low to the ground while I strolled down the sidewalk yesterday. All the desert wildflowers are starting to bloom.

i've been tying knots lately

vintage german glass beads

I have created four necklaces in a row that have beads knotted on silk. It has been kind of relaxing. I don't really like the little sterling clamshell knot cover that lets me join the strand to the toggle or clasp or whatever other findings I want to use. I need to research what other options are available...or engineer my own solution.
