Give Me A Thrinch...
...and I'll make more thrinchies (3"x3" pieces of art).
Here are a couple more thrinchie magnets I made. The sun is for an "Under the Sun" themed challenge. Its background is paint and stamps. The face is polymar clay. And the rays were cut from copper foil tape.
The zetti is for a zetti-themed challenge wherein you must use at least 3 medias. I used acrylic paints for the background; collage images; rubberstamping; and hand drawing and lettering.
Last week was super busy, and the time spent included my first appointment with an endriconologist who started coming to town 1-2x a month beginning in February. He was so thorough and he made some drastic, but positive, changes to my insulin dosages. I'll be in touch with him weekly via email until I see him again in July.
This week I'll be spending most of my time getting my daughter ready for her upcoming trip: almost six weeks at my parents' place (featuring a heated pool) in New Mexico, where she'll also spend a lot of time with her cousin. My husband is taking her down. He'll be gone two weeks, and during that time he'll drive across Texas to spend some time with his family in Louisiana before returning to Juneau. About 1.5 weeks later, I'll fly down, stay with my family for a couple of weeks, and then return home with my daughter at the end of June. Anyway, there is a lot to be done this week, beginning with taking my daughter to the dentist, and then shopping, today.
