Monday Mishmash

How was your weekend? Hope it was good! Mine was pretty good. I decided to do some ceramic painting.  I have been wanting to do a project for quite awhile but after the last mishap I have been hesitant to spend the money and haven't made the time to do it. My first project was some sauce dishes.  The translation is "to eat" on the left and "small" on the right.


You can trace your design with pencil. It burns off when fired


Here is "small" painted

Here they are completed
I went to Michael's to get a small paintbrush and decided to get some supplies to make earrings. At one time, I did want to sell them but discovered that as I have gotten older, it is harder to see to make them so I just make them for myself on occasion. Here is the pair I am wearing today.

As for eating over the weekend, I overate on Saturday. I had extra servings of snacks that I certainly did not need. Blergh...  Sunday, I did better and got a little activity in with my Wii buddy Tony. We bike raced and I won 2/3. Men (sorry guys!) can be such wusses when it comes to playing against a woman. Dave admitted that one of the reasons he does not want to play Wii with me is because he doesn't want to lose! Bwhahahaha! I am not THAT good to begin with and have only gotten better with practice but sheesh! I thought it was a lame excuse! LOL!

Not sure what is on the agenda tonight. I want to get a bike ride in but it might rain. Tony and I put air in my bike tires so I am all ready to go otherwise. Until next time...

  2. You are so talented. I tried to make earrings once but couldn't twist the wire pins small enough. We shall not speak of any painting I've attempted. Needless to say, I APPRECIATE art but don't create it like you do. :)

  3. The plates are really cute, Katie. You are definitely artistic, aren't you?

    Is that a new blog signature I see or am I losing it?
