when it started getting cold a few weeks ago i was inspired to make some wintery themed crafts such as this snowflake ornament.
it's been featured in Etsy Stock Take – Best of November.
and i also made this "first frost" painting which i'd describe as a lighthearted, abstract winter landscape telling the story of the transition from fall/ autumn into the cold winter. it is a glance through the window, discovering the first frost which announces the arrival of a new season. the trees outside are shaking off their last remaining leaves, the first snow flurry is in the air.
the four connected wire hearts were a custom order, they represent a family which makes it extra special. i enjoyed making this a lot!
and then i finally got around to making earrings, something i had wanted to do for a while now. usually i make wire pendants and ornaments, but these are now earrings that i still need to photograph on a person. since the weather got back to giving us mild to warm fall days, they are fall inspired acorn dangle earrings.
have you had a chance to be artsy and crafty as well?
