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.

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.
