A Few of My Favorite Things

I really do believe that things happen for a reason. 
I have been having some 
"computer issues"
involving my photos.
As I was trying to fix the issue with the help of the good people at Apple,
I suddenly began to import thousands of photos!
I don't know where all of them came from.
Some did come from my blog, but others,
I don't know.
They were mine.
I just don't know how 
IPhoto managed to import them
As I was looking through them,
I saw some of my old favorites.
These are beads and jewelry I made that I really liked.
Here are some of my favorite things.

I made this heart using glass from recycled wine bottles!
I need to make more of these!

I made this "creature" from a photo of a tutorial that was being offered several years ago.
I didn't buy the tut because the creature in that tut was made from 
boro glass.
I only use soft glass.
Boro is very hard glass.

This vessel is one of my favorite vessels!
I truly enjoy making vessels, and this one really stole my heart.

After two years of frustration, I finally learned how to make
Beaded Kumihimo!
This was one my first completed bracelets!
I used one of my tiger bead beads as a closure.
I love beaded kumihimo!

I'm starting to get better at this craft.  I've added beads in the middle and more beads for closure.
 Last, but not least, my 
The eye patch I made for my cataract surgery.
This was fun to make and
fun to wear!!!

Stay tuned.
New topics coming soon!

Wow! I love your recycled glass bead, and your kumi is fabulous! I love the way you finished the ends.

Your eye patch is so amazing, Mallory... does it still come out for special occasions? (Hallowe'en? Don't know if you partake.)

Sometimes great moments happen in the midst of challenges!
