We have been making some more charms around here. These were made for valentine's day to give away. The larger hearts were made into magnets or brooches. I love making these, they are really relaxing. Sometimes. Sometimes, they are maddening, but that's only when the clay gets too soft. I helps to pop it in the freezer and wait a bit. Then it's all so much easier. I also still love watching the tutorials on you tube—there are so many out there and I find them mesmerizing.
I just finished Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl: A Memoir, by Carrie Brownstein and it gave me such crazy dreams! I have been having crazy dreams anyway, mostly about babies, but these dreams were not about babies, but about living in Eugene and Seattle in the mid/late 90s during the whole Eugene/Portland/Olympia/Seattle scene. This book brought back so many memories. Mostly of being freezing cold or very hot waiting for shows to start or end, my ears feeling like they would bleed the music was so loud, seeing amazing raw bands that blew my mind (or were unbelievably horrible) feeling itchy from goodwill clothes, and the smoke. She doesn't mention the smoke, but god, remember that?! I would have to put my clothes outside after shows because they stank so bad.
