Still Having Fun

After obtaining inspiration from other people's blogs, I created these watercolor creations.  I am thinking of using a sealant on them and adding a pin back.  I think they will make fun pins.

I visited my niece in Monterey, California.  We went to the Aquarium & Fisherman's Wharf; walked the beach; visited the tidal pools along 17 mile drive; shopped in Carmel; viewed the Ansel Adam's exhibit at the Monterey Museum of Art.  We had good food and a good time.  My camera went with me, unfortunately its battery was at home in the charger.  I wanted to make sure that the battery was fully charged so I could take lots of pictures.

I did have my paint set.  I painted on another painting while on vacation, I left it in my motel room.  The manager cleaned up my room while I was gone.  He threw it away as he thought it was trash since I had torn the paper down to fit in my luggage.

Woven Jewelry

I decided to add a little for interest to my woven flower charm, I like the dangling lady bug.  Then wove a flower and wire pin.
