Mercy Ships is an amazing organization and I absolutely love working with them. You may recall I shared a little about my first project with them in this post last fall. Remember these?
The exciting news is that Taproot Studio Jewelry will soon be available for purchase on the Mercy Ships website! I want to leave the big reveal to them, so I'll just give you a little peek at a few of the details.
I'm really excited about this project and will definitely let you know when the pieces are available.
Being in full-blown metalsmithing mode results in two things:
a.) hideous fingernails and
b.) little time for painting
The fingernail situation is a little hopeless for the time being but I intend to do something about the painting issue in the next few days. I'd at least like to do some quick watercolors of the lilies we have blooming here...might be a nice project for Memorial Day.
For my friends in far away places... Memorial Day is the last Monday in May set aside each year in the States to remember men and women who died while serving our country.
For me Memorial Day signals the official beginning of picnics and lazy days at nearby lakes and occasionally the ocean...only a few weeks until I'm slathering myself with sunscreen and digging my toes in the sand!
I've missed linking up with my friends at Paint Party Friday, Creative Every Day, and Sunday Sketches lately, so I'm going to carve out some time in these next few days to visit as many of them as I can. I can't wait to see what everyone's been up to!
If' you've never visited these sites I hope you'll take a few minutes sometime to check them out. It's really fun to follow the links and be inspired by the beautiful, diverse works of the artists who participate each week. It's even more fun to participate and all three of these link-ups are open to everyone. Yes, that means YOU!
Have a great weekend, everyone. I'm off to dig out those watercolors!
