I've got a bouquet. I had no idea that would be my result. The vase was only serving as a hands-free way to photograph the flowers but now it's part of the piece. I need to tinker with the arrangement,... Continue reading

I finished the wee metal model kit. It was fun. It's difficult to photograph because it's very reflective. I cut my marker and pencil cases. The marker case assembled exactly as it was supposed to with only one design flaw;... Continue reading
