Me, who never gets colds or flu has had a stinky cold for over 5 weeks. Although it could be more than one: there were 3 different viruses going the rounds and I could have all three of them playing tag-team. So the poor blog suffered. Not as bad as my house suffered. And still suffers. Much more important to catch up on making things and the blog than catching up with Dewey hair.
I discovered a nifty patina for textured copper! Somebody left a metallic silver sharpie in the store and the minute I saw it, it was in my pocket. Couldn't wait to try it and I'm not disappointed.
The silver looks different depending on the angle of the earrings, so it will change as the earrings swing.
Wish it looked better in the picture, though, you don't get the proper effect so you'll have to try it yourself.
Hopefully, I accomplished my goal, but other than the fact that I take lousy pictures, I like it. Click on any picture for more detail. (if it's not too blurry, haha)
