Pushing on through…

DSCN5221Still working on the Black and White Skinner Blend push the envelope activities.  More results pictured! I have played with overlapping discs for years with varied success.  Louise Fischer Cozzi taught a great technique in her Craftcast class which I applied in the necklace on the left.  When I strung up the large bead necklace (below right) it looked reminiscent of Melanie West’s necklace which became the Travelling Sisterhood necklace!  I acknowledge the spirit of that in this creation even though that was not my original intention!!

Today I was looking for the exact words of a loved quote to send to a friend. Christopher Robin says to Winnie the Pooh: …there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart… I’ll always be with you.”DSCN5216

And in looking I found some others I love: One of the advantages of being disorganized is that one is always having surprising discoveries.

And “What day is it?”
It’s today,” squeaked Piglet.
My favorite day,” said Pooh.”
