How my brain works... I have been trying to figure out the pie problem, but thought of a way to make coconut...haha. I see that I will have to figure out how to do things by trying to figure out how to do something else. I am going to go try my idea for the coconut..I will let you know how it works out.

I have been trying to figure out how to make realistic looking fruit pies. I haven't come up with the formula yet, but I do enjoy the experimentation. I have a few more ideas to try out tomorrow.

Today I was really tired. I decided to join a gym and after working out today, I didn't feel like doing anything creative other than think about it. :)

Free Day

We went to the free day at Kingman Museum -- Natural History Museum and Planetarium today. It was a cute little museum, but the planetarium was the best part. We saw the Seven Wonders show and I learned a few things. I also found out a few places that I could fossil hunt, but of course they are hours away from her. I got a few ideas for future crafts from our visit. We shall see how things work out.

I am planning a photo shoot from my charms and other crafts for tomorrow. Hopefully, they will show better in the new photographs. I need a few shots showing them being used and packaging.

Lazy Day

School was out today, but I didn't know until I drove my kid all the way there. It messed up my plans for the day, but created oppurtunity to spend time with my daughter.

Added a couple more things to my shop and created a banner. I am not sure I am totally satisfied with the banner, but I can keep working on it. I have been doing a lot of research on how to promote my shop and have a few ideas. As I do them and find out if they work, I will let you know.

White chocolate instead of coconut

I have been trying to figure out how to create the look of coconut with clay, but it came out looking like shavings of white chocolate or rice. Two good  ideas...interesting to know...wheee. I love how my failures are also successes. I am going to keep trying to figure out this coconut thing..maybe I will come up with more successful failures.


Today I have been doing research on Art and Craft Festivals. It seems that it is very expensive to set up a booth at most shows. I might look into that farther once I start making some income.

I at least found something interesting to do in Battle Creek this weekend..
