Whirlwind of Activity

Finally a moment where I can come up for air! The last few weeks have been major amounts of stress. I won't get into it, but between family, work and a furbaby (one of my cats) being hit by a car...it's been a rollercoaster ride. All of the above are fine now, including Tink, who is fast on the way to healing from her injuries. Whew!

I'm currently working on a few projects. Multi-tasking, as it were. I'm trying to finish some knitting projects for Christmas presents, as well as working on henna projects. The latter will be sold at my next Henna Openhouse in November. I'll also be selling them at OCHSA's Winter Boutique.

A few of these henna-ed objects: Henna decorated boxes and candles. I use old henna that has been sitting out, pretty much leftover after a gig. I don't like re-using this henna on clients as the stain cannot always be guaranteed. So, rather than wasting the henna and it's lovely lavender scent, I've been decorating wood objects and candles with it.

One cool thing, even after the henna has dried and been varnished, you can still smell that lavender. ;-)

Here's a sample of some of the Henna Luminary Candles that I've created:

Pretty cool, right?

Upcoming event:
November Openhouse at my place. Yeah!!!
I'll post about September's openhouse later ;-)
