motorin'


motoring, originally uploaded by kritty.

It's pretty comical how long it took us to get the right ingredients to make this fun little motor. I really need a shot of all the wire configurations that DIDN'T work. Well, I saw this in a round about way from kidding around's husband's blog and I found the howtoons link (and ordered the book). I think what finally worked was following the directions. (switching from a D cell to C cell battery, and buying the proper wire...) It was a fun learning process for everyone. Can't wait for the book! I think I'm more into this than the kids....

Black and white




I have to go back to work tomorrow. I wish I could play and paint and create instead, but I will balance more work and play this year. It's a goal!
I've been working on making my own toile and willow ware designs.
After just looking at Happy Doodle Land's post, I have to get myself to Anthropologie
She found a great bowl and I saw online they carry these cool toile desert plates.... If I get some (even one) I will post!
Also cutting some silhouettes but those aren't ready for viewing.
I hope I make some good stuff this year! {and if you are reading this I hope you do too}
I have been so inspired by some new (to me) blogs I've been finding!!
Have a great week!
