Any old wine bottles laying around (because every crafter should slowly gain a pig stye of potential projects)? Soda bottles, Snapple bottles, etcetera, etcetera...
Crack them and fill the cracks with liquid gold because in some old cultures things were considered beautiful after being broken because that was added to fix things up.
Who cares, do whatever you want.
I had been on Pinterest a long while ago and I've wanted to do this since, but I don't drink wine. So, after asking around I gathered a good amount, and with no particular design in mind, I started painting. Of course, you could do some kind of design of your own, but I wanted to do it so bad I just started painting as soon as they were acquired. :)
Now, they are on my bookshelf serving as additions to my progressively unique dwelling.

Ever since my dog, Dory, chewed the cord on my iron, I've had to put all of my projects on hold, and I am really missing my machine. So, to keep myself busy, and to not go insane, I've been cutting up old shirts, jeans, fabric scraps, etc. and sewing them together.

Anyone out there share my challenge? Working 60-65 hours per week leaves little time for sewing, which makes really big, long projects
Ah, well. At least it's fun, no matter how long it takes to finish!

95 blocks later, you'll be a master.
It's always a satisfying feeling to get to some major milestone in a project that spans several weeks. Today, I finished the final blocks for Mike's new quilt.

On Wednesday, I spoke to two sections of Advanced PR classes at Baylor. In general, young adults know all about how to use social media... for personal reasons. Most don't quite grasp how to use it for business purposes. I appreciate my professor friends who invite me to their classrooms and I enjoy doing it.
On Thursday, I spoke to the Association of Fundraising Professionals. Almost all of these folks were strangers to me, but they were a warm bunch and eager to listen. Several followed up with me later in the day to ask for more advice about their organization needs.
Most rewarding: one person sent me a message detailing a Facebook crisis that happened as soon as she returned to the office -- that she handled it just as I had advised such a situation should be handled -- and that the result was she turned a negative "troll" into a positive "trumpeter" and received accolades for it from higher-ups. Nicely done! Made my day.

The perfect apron for her art teacher!
It is amazing what Caille has accomplished in the last week!
