It's been a while

So I am not really good at keeping up with this blog. But I have made a few new necklaces and I wanted to post them up for you guys. I will be listing them in my Etsy shop soon.

This is what I wish I was doing right now instead of being at work.
Happy Monday!

New "creations"

I have recently listed some new necklaces in my Etsy shop and
I would like to share them with you guys. These have been so fun to
make and it has been exciting to find new cans to use for my pieces. The new apartment that we just moved to is near a ton of international farmers markets and I have found so many new cans to use. So here are a few of the new. Enjoy!

New Name, New Apartment!

Finally the kitty has a name besides kitty. It's Tato. Short for Potato. I think he likes it and it seems to fit him nicely.

We also found a new apartment. It is so beautiful! Two bedroom, one bath with hardwood floors, black granite counter tops, new stainless steel appliances and a washer and dryer! I will no longer have to travel to have clean clothes. I also get to paint the walls! They are a pretty green color now which is nice, but I want a teal wall like I've never wanted anything else. So I think the living room is going to have a teal wall. Here are some pictures of the kitchen.

I wanted to share with you my new roommate! Today is my birthday and Vic had his mum send a kitty on an airplane all the way from Maine to get here for my birthday! This is possibilty the best cat ever! He is seven months old and he purrs SO loud, I love it! We are still getting to know each other so he doesn't have a name yet. I have a few ideas in my head, but I need to hang out with him some more before I decide on one.

Something new....

Hello to a beautiful rainy day. I wanted to share something that I am really excited about. I have been working on little versions of my metal quilts. I love the process of weaving the metal together, but I was worried that my pieces were maybe getting lost in translation and people just don't know what to do with them. So I started making small scale woven metal pieces. An exciting thing about these new pieces are that they incorporate recycled aluminum cans! This adds interesting color and uses materials that were going to waste.

I then turned these little "quilts" into jewelry! I have made pendents, bracelets and earrings. I am looking forward to sharing these and see what people think. I feel like there are many possibles with this line of jewelry. So let me know what you think.

On a personal note, my birthday is tomorrow and I am turning 27. I don't know how I feel about this. Not that there is anything I can do about it.... But I guess it is time to say goodbye to my mid-twenties, unless 27 still counts. I think I am going to still count as being in the middle.

Have a great weekend.
