Nest Feathers and Twine - Formally Artist's Block Studio

The things that make a house a home and the stuff that holds is all together.

Years ago I started this blog with a mindset and goals that I have found have changed direction over time. I am excited to say that this blog has a new name.....Nest Feathers and Twine. I hope you come by and visit often. Feel free to get comfortable and kick off your shoes and join me on this journey of metamorphosis.

just wanted to say i am still here.........
i have been busy with art, yard work, painting prep, and school work! yes school work. so far this year i have had more homework than my children! not just the filling out and signing of forms, but actual homework.

so, due tomorrow i have to write about a funny or cute story involving my daughter between the ages of birth - 3, include a picture of her at that age....sheesh i need to organize my photos.....and decorate....the daughter is a high school senior! the assignment reads like stuff she brought home in kindergarten!

i ended up picking the story that was the easiest to decorate around! all in all this assignment is not bad, we talked about alot of memories and it made me realize just how fast time has gone and that no matter how old she is i will always think of her as my baby.

my daughter has also brought home the crud....last week, the first week of school. we thought it was just allergies, but they are not contagious, and now i have it.

with all of this, plus a few other bits of life going on i will try to get back soon.

made these necklaces and bracelet, working of 4 others, and made vintage button icicles yesterday
in between rounds of yard work, and spackling holes in walls.....
so, yes, that means i did not get walls painted before school started as planned, but life threw us a curve ball or two.

jewels and icicles to go on etsy friday night....probably.....
when you add an item to etsy you get about 30 seconds of 'free' advertising. i am thinking friday evenings and maybe sunday early evening might be a high volume time for etsy cruising? i am learning as i go with this.
