Unfinished brooch, Coral sea polyp - 2"x2"x1.25" Also a trial and error pic

What have I been doing lately? Well making stuff of course. I've begun to make my sea creatures again, only all in cold connection. Having no studio makes a person very creative.

For a while I was crocheting a blanket but when I was bored of that (about 1/2 way through) I decided I wanted to see how small I could crochet. I remembered that my great grandmother used to crochet lace. So I went out to the craft store and bought the smallest hook I could find and corresponding string/yarn. I started out making some horrible looking flowers and then I began making these little lace hat like things. Then the brain gears began to turn and fun ideas started to pop in to my head. This is what happened, it is in no way done I am still beside myself about the creature within (as you can see I've made more than one). I sometimes tend to over embellish. I think I need some time to see where I'm going with this but this was my favorite one until I burned it with he heat gun... damn! So I will continue to think... lots of thinking. I will post a picture when it is done.

I want to try crocheting sewing thread and see how small that is next. I'm going to go do that now. Fun fun!

I just don't want to work at Walmart!

Time just seems to keep passing me by. I am waiting to here about a particular jewelry job and I am starting to get annoyed. I applied 2 weeks ago and I called twice about my application. They just said nicely that they have about 500 applications for all the different jobs that they are hiring for and someone will let me know after they have processed all the applications. ugh! what about I need a job now and I would like it to not be at Walmart please. Oh I am starting to get desperate as I dip into my savings fund. Time to apply for as many jobs as i can I guess. I just don't want to work at Walmart..... Oh yeah there is always Disney World duh! I'll just work there doing princess makeovers all day. Samantha got a princess makeover! I could do that just slap the kid with as much gritter as possible, add a fancy hair extension, and a tiara! *poof* done! and look how happy she is!
