In My Studio – April 2

Posted by lori . 13 Comments


This week, I made a super cute yo-yo bear as the final yo-yo project of March’s “Try This” posts.  I want to try more of these…maybe a bunny rabbit next.


Yo-yo bear was the only project I completed this week; but while driving to Purdue University to visit my daughter, I saw this sign…


I didn’t make many things this week, but I did support several fellow artists.  NOT “spent a bunch of money,” RATHER “supported fellow artists.”  That’s my take on it…my husband didn’t buy it (pun intended).  Here’s what I picked up:

Handmade cards (handmade paper and pressed flowers) from Hole in the Woods Farm.


An exquisite pen (for my husband) from Bunnyhop Woodworking.

A felted egg and a couple deer antler buttons (also from Bunnyhop Woodworking).

A colorful beaded bracelet.

An intricately cut cross.

Pretty new placemats.


 A leather pouch that intrigued me.

A couple puppy air fresheners and some tealights.

And, a few J. R. Watkins products.  I have never tried J. R. Watkins products.

What a great way to start off the weekend!  I didn’t have much time to explore the Fulton Country Museum; but I will take time to visit the museum properly on another trip down to visit my daughter.  I’ll make sure to write about it.  It looks like a wonderful museum.

Note:  The “Daily Inspiration” picture is the Fulton County Museum’s round barn.
