Day of the Dead Rosary from the Dia de los Muertos Mixed Media kit from Gauche Alchemy

Ending 2012 on a High Note

Everyday Adventures

I’m afraid I don’t even know where to begin to recap this year. There have been both ups and downs, and plenty of big and small within those categories.

One of the major highlights, creatively, for me has been being a part of the Gauche Alchemy team. My latest project, a Day of the Dead Rosary, went up on Friday and I think it’s my favorite project to date:

I made the bulk of the beads from a sheet of paper in the kit, added the included skull beads and cameo (also in the kit) and then made a pouch for it from the sugar skull fabric leftover from an earlier project–again, from the same kit. And I still have supplies left over!

For the last few weeks I’ve been kinda lucky, too! First I won a blog-hop prize sponsored by Helmar USA and then a giveaway from the Sparkling Gnome. The Helmar glues have been freaking amazing to work with–if you can’t find them locally it’s worth ordering online (I know that’s what I’ll be doing). And I’m just giddy to play with the goodies on their way from gnome HQ 🙂

But that’s not all I’ll be doing in January! While I won’t be posting here on the 64 Arts (or on any of the sites in the Helper Monkey Network), I’ll be working behind the scenes to spiff things up a bit between the sites and planning out the year to come. And it’s going to be a great year!

Best of the New Year to you all, and we’ll talk again in February!
