Time to be productive

Yesterday was a quiet day. Did some supply orders, which always takes me forever since I love looking at supplies (even packaging supplies) and I always end up ordering more stuff than I intended to buy. It IS stuff I need, I just didn't know I needed it before I saw it ;)

JF, my husband, made a birthday veggie couscous, which was delish! He also made bread without the breadmaker (we have a breadmaker that we use around once a week) which is very tasty, but dense. For some reason it didn't rise as it was supposed to, and JF said we should save it as a weapon against intruders (if we ever had intruders). Did I mention it was dense? As we speak, JF is slicing it up and is going to bake them and try and make crisps or melba toast with them.

Today is going to be a production day. I have stock to replenish for two upcoming shows: a small fundraising craft show where part of the proceeds are going to the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of Canada (JF was diagnosed with colitis two years ago) and a crafters' market in May, which will be in Ottawa, Ontario. Looking forward to these two events!

I never know what's going to go well at any given show, so I'll be making more of these:

Chiyogami earrings:

And pendants:

And pendants with beads and stones:

Off to work I go.

Croutons would be a good use for that bread, too.

Sorry to hear about JF's colitis. Yuck, yuck, yuck. And I know a few people who have Crohn's too. Good to hear of a show that supports both diseases.

those pendants are gorgeous! Stuart makes all our bread by hand, I think it is just practice, but these loaves look brilliant even if they might be a bit heavy.
