back and forth

My two lives. My late night/early mornings life of mad crafty energy, where my fingers itch to create and my mild mannered day life of teaching, biking, tennis and the love of my life!

Sock Bugs and their Baby Bugs!


Okay, there's this amazing artist, Yvonne Palermo . She makes silver and glass pendants, she has pics of Travis Barker on her site and in her jewelry, and she is infectious!! She ordered an orange Sock Bug, and loves her! So she wants me to get into galleries! How fun is that? And she had all kinds of ideas...and this was her idea that I worked on this weekend.
The Sock Bugs from now on will have a hidden loop, and the Baby Bugs will have a snap strap, so the Baby Bugs can piggyback on the Sock Bugs! How fun is that? So you can have your sock and iPod too! Or something like that.



I'm so excited about this. Also, Yvonne suggested a label on the Sock Bugs, so each Sock Bug will have a hidden label that says 'An Original Sock Bug by Sockdiva' on it. Here's a hanging view, and a Baby Bug portrait:




Oh, and I finished my Clapotis. I love the drape, and the color has grown on me, after much feedback from girlfriends. I'm wearing it now, and it'll probably stay there until Spring!



(Hi Amy! I think you're the only one that checks my blog. How are you doing? Miss you on Craftser!)
