I’ve shown you mine, now let me see yours!
Friday, June 7th, 2013

See the pics below? That’s the sort of thing I do when I’m trying to unwind. I can play with color and make what I see in my head happen. Something I can’t really do when I write. Making jewelry isn’t nearly as time-consuming either. The earrings took maybe an hour, because I kept putting things together, then cutting the wire because I didn’t like the length of the dangles. The pendant took a week because of having to leave it to dry in between applications of paint and ink and varnish, but only about an hour of real labor. The bracelet took a couple of hours because I played with dangles, trying to figure out what I liked putting together.

It’s therapy, and I’ve shared pics of things I’ve made since I started working with jewelry over a year ago. (You can see more of my jewelry on my Pinterest page.)

My question is, are you crafty or artistic? And would you like to share pictures of what you make here? If you send them, I will add them to this post! OR if I get enough, I’ll put together a post next Tuesday to showcase your artistic/crafty efforts! And if you have Pinterest pages where you show your work, send me those links!

Make sure your pics aren’t huge files, you can resize them so they don’t take forever to load. And please keep it to 2—so choose your best! Don’t be shy or think you have to be professional—I’m not! Email your pictures to me at Delilah@delilahdevlin.com.

    I loom hats and knit blankets and I’m getting ready to start making candles. I’ve got pictures on facebook, when I get to an actual computer I’ll post the pics.

    I haven’t done anything crafty in forever! I used to quill but stopped because we have cats. The cats are moving, so I’m hoping to start again.

    Karen, you will love getting back into it. I started this craft/art thing a little over a year ago, and I keep experimenting and adding new skills. It’s really rewarding!

    I used to make dream-catchers and used to crochet. I am just now thinking about doing some things with plastic canvas and start back up doing some crocheting.

    Those are gorgeous! I wish I could do it! I wanna try but im not sure I’m “artsy” enough. I sometimes make blankets with my mom. We used to do it with my grandma all the time. Thats about it.

    I am not crafty. But I have a friend who is really crafty. She crochet a 4 food dragon. I have a picture of that one. I can email you. :-P I do play around when I feel like it and make different earrings. I like something a little different.
    I love that butterfly necklace.
    I “dabble” in writing but I have to be in the mood.

    I am a little of both. I do make some jewelry and I am a clown. I have been clowning for about 30+ years. I’m learning how to crochet now and next year I’ll be traveling alone in an RV. I am also a Magic Castle magician.
