We went to see Indiana Jones and the Giant Temple of Crystal Poo today. And that just about sums up what I thought about the movie. Shia LeBeouf annoys the crap out of me, and Harrison Ford seemed like a big dork. Sigh. I will admit that Cate Blanchett was awesome - I don't remember many of the movies she's been in, but in this one she did a good job.
New Etsy posting for today - upon Aimee's recommendation, I made a "barrette for grownups". She said she was tired of all the plasticky things she saw at places like Claire's, which are clearly not for grownups, but the nice ones at Nordstrom are way too expensive and sometimes way too flashy for everyday wear.
So I used the technique I learned in a class I took with Leslie at a local bead store, and applied it to a barrette instead of a pendant. I'm pleased with how it turned out, though pictures of sparkly things have been quite challenging. I'm still working on that part.
Thoughts? Comments? Like the lanyard, this is an experiment. If someone buys it, I'll make more. Making these takes a long time since each bead is individually wrapped onto the barrette. But once I got into the rhythm, and with a little help from Iron Maiden, it was nice and soothing :)
