May you have peace in your life.
Not asking for world peace, just peace in your life or within yourself. Enough to make your piece of the world livable in rough times. It's pretty rough for many.
I've had this design in my head since last year. It just never made it's way out.
This was going to be my ornament of the the year. I have been making ornaments every Christmas for many years.
Every mold for buttons, pendants or ornaments have their own quirks you deal with when you are making your art.
Why do you make molds? Well, for consistency Virginia. Plus it makes my life easier.
This particular mold was making my life miserable. It was taking way too long to produce one ornament. Frankly, I have way to many I need to make with a looming deadline.
I needed a little peace in my life on this one...find your happy place and breath.
I came up with another design after my husband had to say "you did this to yourself." Well yeah. Design yourself in a corner and see if you can get out. I really cornered myself on this one. I wasn't feeling the love on the second design. My son came up with an idea and I took it from there. I was feeling the love on the third design. Now if I can just produce enough because that deadline didn't quit looming just because my mold was messed up.
My turn for Studio Saturday on Christmas Day.
I am happy how the only Peace ornament turned.
Thanks for visiting.
Hop over to see what everyone else made.
