so those are my written tears, a portion of them anyway. thanks, Paul Coehlo, for the inspiration.

while i'm here i'll offer a peek of what's new from the JMO studio. i've had my hands in clay lately, and i am LOVING it. oh, the possibilities! i created these musical notes with a cookie cutter, air dry clay, paper, glue and varnish. they will either be strung together like garland or bunting, or each may hang separately. i haven't decided yet.
and with that same clay i've also been doing a little sculpting. this here is Penny Ann, she's about 90% complete. i'm kicking around the idea of giving her a body, though i really love her just the way she is. she was lovingly created by sculpting air dry clay around a styrofoam ball, has glass eyes, a crochet beret (handmade by moi), and her hair is silky soft hand dyed Wenslesydale locks. artist's pencils were used to apply her 'makeup.'
also working on sample patterns for the first ever JMO Collection ~ Summer 2013. i can't divulge many details on that project just yet (sorry), but here's a look at one of the pieces in development. almost the entire collection will be crocheted, with macrame and beaded accents added. i am REALLy excited about this project and will share more details as soon as i can!
well, that's it for now. may the coming year bring you all peace, love and harmony. until next time...
