I think I fixed the pictures in the previous post. Tell me if you can see them.
A crazy rainstorm just burst upon Chicago, with lightning strong enough to make all the car alarms go off. It'll hopefully take care of this nasty humidity that suddenly blanketed the city.
Mistress of Tides.
My mother just returned after a long stay in California where she came upon and adopted 2 sweet kitty cats. We've never had cats before. But now when we go over to Mom and Dad's-- what will Bingo do? He is very possessive of his territory. His universe is about to be turned upside down!
I went out and got all the accouterments: the litter box, the litter, the litter box liners, food, toys, bed, scratching post- phew! And since I've never had cats I was all upset-and-confused shopping. Where you're looking at all the brands and different styles of everything totally clueless as to what to get. I mean, is multi-cat litter formula really any different than regular formula?
Our Lady of Unbearable Seeing.
Tonight, even though they were hiding beneath the beds, I managed to give one a little scratch under the ear and next thing you know she was rolling all over me purring her fuzzy heart out.
I'm so happy Mom has that to keep her busy after her recent retirement.
The Interplanetary Horror Vacui.
Too much time on her hands leads to coming over cuz she's bored which in turn leads to her noticing the tumbleweeds of dog hair around this place, and nothing good can come of that.
Check out the glowing cab by Polymerpretties. I actually grunged it a bit and bordered it with black paint to tone it down some. The thing is so luminous, I think my face got sunburnt from looking at it too long.
From Sorrow to Sorrow.
In this batch I'm recycling some item names, from a little while back when I had a bit more inspiration.
Threshold of the Infinite.
This one is totally cosmic to me. Can you see my glittery dangle from yesterday? Or was it the day before? What year is this? Where am I?
Are these as good as my last batch with the buddhist reliquaries? I never know. If they sell I'll be all "Of course they're gorgeous! I know what I'm doing- I'm awesome." And if they don't I'll be all, "What was I thinking? These are hideous."
Before We Are Clay.
Does anyone know what the green stone is here? there's one dangling from the focal and another at the end of the 'chain'. It's quite pretty, though these pictures don't do them justice.
Here you can see a mini milagro I made. I struggled a bit trying to paint it til I realized the best paint brush was the end of some thin waxed polyester cording I have. Then I oxidized over the paint which took a lot of it off. To nice effect, I think. Oh crap, I just remembered I haven't waxed it yet. For protection. I get so eager to show them off I don't even finish them before I'm taking pictures.
Also, as I was working on this the sunlight hit the tourmaline just so and I realized that every one of these stones have translucent sections that glow in the light. It's gorgeous.
Notice the wider blog? It's so I can use the extra large size images without them getting cut off. Still getting a hang of it.
