The happy pumpkin is a pottery sculpt with glass beads and carnelian chips. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=7229370
I was having so much fun with the carnelian chips I made a ring with another piece of sculpted earthenware and copper wire. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=7230859

This is the first time I have offered the essences individually. I will make more of the single flowers and gemstone elixers available soon.
I only use natural clay: white, red or black (a very dark grey in fact).
I intend to add more engravings, stones and even incorporate some pigments or herbs...Whatever my Muse will suggest. I will most likely make more brooches, pendants...Maybe some figurines too ;).
I like this design, it's both primitive and modern with a discreet charm. I think she'll look great on a jacket or a shawl.

Sadly, it was gone again before I had the chance to view it but one of my fellow front-pagers, Pincushion Queen, had taken screenshots and happily sent them to me.
Thank you! and YAY!

Fiction: The Fifth Sacred Thing. I'm re-reading this one after only having read it the first time a few months ago. Not sure why except perhaps that I'm out of other fiction and also thinking this might put my head in mind for the upcoming road trip. Interestingly, I appear to be reading two books by Starhawk at once, tho it wasn't a conscious choice.
Craft: Sexy Little Knits: Chic Designs to Knit and Crochet. knitting and crochet are two of my "lesser" hobbies along with spinning yarn, and i only do them when i can't make jewelry or i'm in an inspiration "lull". i also generally only do it when it's cold and am usually fascinated with creating lingerie. This book has great patterns for that. Hopefully I can finish this bikini by january.
Metaphysical: The Earth Path: Grounding Your Spirit in the Rhythms of Nature. I've always loved Starhawk for her down-to-earth, non-wishy-washy approach to things as well as her nature-focused concepts. This book serves a dual purpose as a good fluid read as well as a great guide for developing personal and group rituals to honor nature.
What have you been reading lately?
