oooo...look what i did...added numbers to the top of my piece. my project has moved forward ... slightly. tomorrow, i am off to michael's for a clock hand or two. i also have a working title which i will reveal when this is complete. see this previous entry:

[how DO people embed a reference? something to put on my dumb-junk-i-gotta-do list.]

i won!

a free book from craftside: they introduce books (from, provide a review and rate different craft products. now, i don't want you to go and sign up for their updates...that would mean that there is more competition for the freebies {wink}. it's a wonderful, entertaining and informative site.

i won this book some time ago from the folks at craftside and forgot to brag about it.

update has been a month...

i am a little further along.... see the 1/20/10 post:

the picture on the left shows the elements i have collected up to this point. (i will still use the angel. it briefly hid itself on my table, but is home again with the rest.) since last time, i added the word "H O M E" using scrabble letters and attached them with self-made links of heavy copper wire, because this is what i had. next time i am at the home improvement store, i must get a lmedium guage. the tag is a piece of copper stamping that i purchased somewhere along the way. i cut out the heading from my old postal laws book and positioned it inside this tag and filled the recess with dimensional magic. this tag and the pocket watch dial are not yet adhered. i have a large watch hand coming, and i will try that out on top of the dial. perhaps that is the final element. so until next time, i will be thinking about this some more.
