Science With Tiny

While I neglected the camera again and have no picture of us to document our time, I need to record the day so I will always remember how much fun Tiny (Strider) and I had experimenting in the kitchen. On Thursday this week Tiny came to play with me for a few hours. We spent over one of those in the kitchen with a glass pan full of soda and cups of colored vinegar, an eye-dropper, straws and our fingers. About half way through, some little green army men joined in the fun. We built up volcanos, rocks, tunnels, and whatever came to Tiny's mind. We tried cooking the concoction in the micowave and ended freezing an army guy in a cup of goo. We had great fun, fizzing away the time! According to mom, he told everyone about the "experiment" and when I visited later, he retrieved his "freezed army guy" to show me he still had him safe! See you next Thursday, Tiny, when we will try making "gak." I will try to remember to take a picture!

Birds On The Brain

While this week was a busy one, with a trip to the temple in Mesa on Tuesday, home Wednesday evening, a fun day with Strider on Thursday, Monday was spent in my cave, music softly playing in the background, creating a new feathered friend and Friday found me returning to my newest passion, birds! Today I finished my second in the flock who's home will be in Ashley's favorite spot, wherever that might be!

This little one is entitled "All Dressed Up and No Where To Crow." She is all lace, velvet and glitter with turquoise and purple feathers, nesting amongst her bottle of glitter, spool of rhinestones, a key to the city, handmade paper-covered eggs,and other assorted treasures. She is indeed, "dressed to crow." I am having such fun!!

More Crafty Business

For some reason the following post that I just posted moments ago would not let me download my pictures. So the following pictures are of my little bird and her nest. Read further for more on subject!

Crafty Business

Ashley and I had some late night fun a few weeks back. Her friend needed a quaint bouquet and we said we could make one. Ashley went shopping and brought her finds and I dug through cupboards and boxes and added mine to the mix. Then we put our hands and heads together and this is the bouqut we came up with. We love it! And now Ashley is thinking we could sell these!!! So if anyone reading this blog is interested, leave a comment!

We also had some fun with birds and nests. And these I am excited about and have plans for the birth of a few more. I have been dying lace black for my next one. Each bird will be an individual creation with her own story. This first one is entitled " A Bird in the Hand." If I could have my wish, it would be to go into my little room and sit and create, with no interruptions each and every day for at least 6 hours. You know what they say...If wishes were horses.....
