Make something beautiful every day.

I've been trying to make a little something pretty every day, whether  it's a doodle, a bead thing, a paper toy, a painting or a cake. Today was this page of stampy farm animals made with tiny foam stickers I bought at the Dollar Tree.

Here is a little pendant I made. I molded the bird and heart from baked clay then textured them with gold paint. I've put some of my "makings" up for sale in my etsy shop.


 I have peaches to make a pie but it's too hot to cook. Maybe tomorrow. What have you been making this summer? What new things would you like to learn how to do?

Best thoughts,


“Whether or not you can never become great at something, you can always become better at it. Don’t ever forget that. And don’t say, “I’ll never be good.” You can become better, and one day you’ll wake up and you’ll find out how good you actually became." ~ Neil deGrasse Tyson

  2. How lovely to use the little foam stickers for stamps .... clever too. I shall keep an eye out for other suitable little things for my small folk to use too. Thank you! I have just found your fantastic space on this internet thing and shall visit often I think :-).

  3. Hey Marilyn,
    Glad to see you busy. I'll have to visit your Etsy shop again. I saw your paintings last month or so. I missed the Los Rios with you...
