Happy What’s on Your Workdesk WednesdayI hope those of you who celebrated it had a lovely Thanksgiving. (And for the rest of you, I hope you had a lovely just-another-Thursday.) 🙂

We went to a friend’s house and the cake I brought was a huge hit. It’s the darkest, richest, chocolatiest cake I’ve ever made. In case you need a cake like that here’s the recipe for ya:  Cooks Country Chocolate Layer Cake

2014 12 03 woyww  tribal pendants

My work desk this week shows me making a couple more of Sylvie Peraud’s Tribal Pendants from CraftArtEdu.com.

You can see the one I finished next to the pasta machine, I wasn’t very happy with it. I spent too much time messing around with the colors and obliterated much of the texture.

So, I made two more and baked them before coloring. I did it her way first, but now I’m going to do the alcohol ink coloring quite differently than the way she said in the class. We’ll see how they come out.

In other news, I’ll be starting work on my own classes at CraftArtEdu.com very soon. I’m excited about that!

Some of you were waiting to see the completed sweaters I started in September. Here’s my blog post on two of them, plus a pattern review.

Wondering why I’m posting photos of my desk? Well it’s What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday, the day we all go visiting the creative spaces of creative people all over the world. The blog link party starts at Julia’s.

Happy creating, all!

  1. Get you being a teacher! I think both pendants are pretty true to your sketches! I looked in on the sweater top review – it looks lovely on you and I agree, the buttons on the collar a re a great touch. I would like it in a tunic length..but that’s because I have a lot to hide! Love the way it kicks out a little at the bottom, and a really nice fabric. You’re brave, because if I even remotely thought it would be scratchy, I wouldn’t have bothered!

    1. Thanks, Julia! Yeah, I’ve got a bit to hide, myself. Until I took this photo I thought I was doing a better job of it, lol.

      Happy creating!

  2. The tribal pendants look fab, and I just love the woolly pullys – gorgeous. Exciting news about the course, eh?! Hope it goes really well. Happy WOYWW, Chris # 15

  3. Congrats on your new classes! You’re becoming quite the guru. I can’t see the texture of the pendants, but I like the colors. Are you going to use either in a necklace?

    1. Thanks, Robin! I’ll show closer photos so you can see the textures once they’re done. I do hope to like one of them enough to make a necklace. 🙂

  4. Thank you for the free classes. They are very informative.
    I plan on checking out some other classes you offer.

  5. Thank you for the chocolate cake recipe. I like your tribal mask. A guy I work with is originally from India so everytime he comes back from a visit – I get a gift. Yay! This time is was two masks that they make from clay in his village. They are so cool. I will feature them sometime on my blog. I told him they would be perfect hanging in my craftroom. Thank you for your visit. And the RPatz mousepad is my daughters, but she left it so it is mine. 🙂

  6. This desk hopping should come with a warning for the easily addicted! LOL! Of course I had to pop over to CraftArtEdu to take a peek at the class. I don’t, or at least up to this point, worked in clay but these tribal pendants have gotten my attention! Indeed all the creative goodness that goes along with working in clay that is so addictively displayed on your desk has me wanting to sign up for this class too! No, no, I just can’t, ummm, pardon me while I tell my creative muse that she needs to keep her eyes averted while I desk hop on Tuesdays because I just can’t take on any new mediums… I haven’t even touched my rigid heddle loom since I set it up! Well, that settled – yeah, like my muse listens to me! lol! Anyway, sorry for getting around to your desk so late… I am indeed one of the tortoise in life 😀
    Hugs and happy crafting… til next week…

    1. Haha, your note cracked me up, Beth. Yes, I know all about telling yourself you simply CANNOT take on another type of project, only to find all your money spent on supplies and you in the midst of it. 🙂

      The past couple of years my mantra has been “focus.” I’ve been learning to focus on getting accomplished at a few things, which is much harder work, I’ve found, rather than dabbling in many things.

      The temptation is always there, but I remind myself that every time I dabble in something new, I’m taking away from getting truly skilled at something else.

      Thanks for stopping by and happy creating, in whatever media!
