Christmas in Miniature

I have been busy at the torch again!

Creating my handmade miniature Christmas ornaments.  Pretty little filigree balls coated with white glass enamel.  Perfect for that little Christmas tree.  I have added some of these to my big Christmas tree for added flair and dimension.

These and more including a variety of colors are available in my Squier Etsy Shop's Christmas Section.

The white reminds me of snow covered ornaments.

Oh so pretty!

Leaves Are Falling

Escape to Nature
by Artist Rita Squier

Original Watercolor Painting
Size: 2.5 x 3.5 inches

It's that busy Autumn time of year when the leaves are falling from the trees.  The more you rake the leaves, the more they fall from the trees.  Keeps a person very busy!

My only wish would be for all the leaves to fall before the first snow!

Good Morning Snow?

January Frost
by Artist Rita Squier

Original Watercolor Painting
Size: 5x7 inches

It is April not January, however, we awoke to snow this chilly morning.  The temperature was in the low 20s.  It was mid 60s yesterday afternoon and it was over 70 the day before.  Such is the temperature of Spring up and down with Winter trying to hold on tight.  But I have flowers blooming in my gardens, crocuses, hyacinths, daffodils, siberian irises and more.

I have been working on the redesign of my website.  This January Frost painting and more 5x7 watercolors are on display and up for sale.  My goal is to continue to add more of my art to the website.  The six new pieces added yesterday were all painted this year.  A few have been displayed here on my blog and now they are listed for sale.

Monday Morning Lamby

One should not leave their newly needle felted project on the living room coffee table if you have a playful cat.

Scooter kitty decided Lamby was a fun new friend for him to play with.  Poor Lamby.  He even ended up with a tuft of red wool from our living room carpet on the top of his head from his adventures with Scooter.

I placed Lamby back on the foam needle felting cushion and kept him on the corner of my desk.  In between emails, bookkeeping, design work and waiting for customers to get back to me, I was able to needle felt Lamby back to beautiful cuteness.

For now ... Lamby lives on my desk ...

Little Lamby

The second DIY kit I purchased was a needle felting kit to create a sheep from BearCreekDesigns on Etsy.

I decided I wanted to give needle felting a try.  This DIY Kit was perfect for a beginner like me.  I began creating the body and the head while watching a movie on DVD on Saturday night.

By Sunday afternoon, I had this adorable little Lamby!  He's so cute.  Needle felting was not as difficult as I thought it would be and I really enjoyed creating this little fellow.

Homemade Cheese

Yes, Fresh Homemade Mozzarella!

I splurged on two DIY Kits I found on Etsy.  Kind of as little birthday presents for me from my darling little furry friends.  I ordered them earlier in the week and both arrived by the end of the week.

I found a DIY Mozzarella Kit from UrbanCheesecraft on Etsy.

This afternoon Michael and I made our first batch of homemade mozzarella cheese.  It was so much fun and very easy to do too!  Cheese in an hour.

We made two blobs of cheese, I made mine plain and Michael added dried oregano to his.  They both turned out great.  We ate some as hors d'oeuvres and shredded some on top of homemade pizzas.   The kit comes with enough stuff to make 10 batches.  Just add your own milk.
