Desktop, January 7, 2012: Goddesses and Valentines

Been indulging in my favorite things the last couple of weeks. The week between Christmas and New Years has always been about down time and catch-up. The routine is ingrained in my psyche due to years of higher education. So, the first two weeks of the new year are easy to let myself relax and reflect on the year passing...and feel like I get a little ahead. It was always a delusion, the getting ahead thing.
Although, this year I have finished and listed my handmade Valentine's Day cards before the end of the first week of the year. Not spectacular but moving forward in a timely manner. LOL
I have been creating hangy-downs with my goddesses. I shared the beginnings of different ideas in my muffin tin in my last post. I got totally absorbed in searching my large stash of vintage beads and old costume jewelry. It took the better part of three days to do the search and do some research online and read a book about goddesses globally. Very interesting reading.
I'm thinking I want to call these "Watchers" because I am tempted to put one on the rear view mirror in my car. I, also, want to wear them, each a color statement. They feel a little magical to me. I'm totally pleased with all the doodads I have stashed to use. Now they are vintage doodads. LOL I would love to know what you think about my "Watcher Goddesses". Enjoy!


  1. I like putting beads like this around my fat ginger jar lamps.

  2. You are so creative! I really love the beads, and you did a really lovely job with the Valentines cards. Thanks for sharing! :)
