The month began with a wonderful visit with family (I promise I will post some pictures from the trip). Unfortunately, Joe and I woke the morning after our return to discover new colds had waited for us quite impatiently. They've been the sort of guests who greatly overstay their welcome. I'm hoping to find a shiny new immune system under the Christmas tree. Or better yet, a matched his and hers set. That would be splendid!
I also wanted to share my New Leaf pendant, my entry for this month's Echo Creative Club. Jeannie's polymer clay leaf made me think of the New Year and new beginnings. And New Year's celebrations.
I thought I'd create a brooch with lots of festive corkscrews to remind me of streamers. Somewhere along the way it became a pendant. It's a much simpler design than my usual, but I like it.
Now I need to go see everyone else's designs.
