Another Weekday Adventure

Copper Harbor Adventures: Wooly Mastadon

With my work, I don’t have a normal repeating schedule. I don’t often get weekends, and my days off get shifted throughout the week all the time. However, it also means I can take Monday and Tuesday off without batting an eye. This week was the perfect reason to do that. A few of my friends made the trek to come visit me those days and of course we had to go on an adventure. Copper Harbor was a must.

You know what’s coming, photo overload. Regardless, I had such a wonderful time I absolutely had to share.

Some Neon Adventures

DIY Tassels: Wooly Mastadon

This week was a week of projects, but not my normal projects. Yes I did work on my socks but mostly I had the urge to pull out my beading stuff…to make tassels. There’s a backstory here. I have wanted a cute key chain to put on my car keys for awhile, but most of the key chains I owned or looked at were far too heavy. Then I started thinking about the current trend, tassels. More specifically, neon tassels. I love these things but there was no way I’d pay that much money for a tassel. I went on Pinterest, found a really easy DIY with materials I already had and went to work. In hardly any time at all I had six tassels in varying sizes that I can put on keys, use in jewelry, or whatever else I choose.

I love those easy projects that you start on a whim and at the end of the day actually were easy, simple, and look like they are supposed to. I love the neon colors and am ready to put them on everything (and make tons more). Per usual, when getting the materials for this project I also unearthed some cool metal charms I had received as a gift several years ago. All they needed was a cord so I also have two cool necklaces to welcome the summer with open arms.

Now you know I not only have a fiber craft/art addiction, I also have a beading addiction too. It’s all good, I stay out of trouble that way…maybe. Happy weekend. Summer is coming, it’s going to be a good one.

A Brief Weekend Adventure

Weekend Adventures: Wooly Mastadon

It seems that all I post around here right now is about my adventures. Seriously, that is all that is really going on around here. I have kind of lost my knitting mojo…gasp…and am really not sure how to get it back. I am hoping that perhaps casting a new shawl on will do the trick but for the time being I have been doing other random projects (graphic design, cleaning, etc.) and have just been lazy. The bug I caught on Memorial Day held on a bit longer than I had hoped and I completely lost my voice on Thursday and still have yet to find it. Thus I have been lying low although I do feel a ton better and all that is left is to find my voice. However, enough on current things.

Despite the bug I still went out of town to my Grandmother’s house to help with a few beginning of summer chores including putting in her dock for the season this past Friday and Saturday. Actually, this is the first year that my Dad and I installed it on his property next door so it was a bit of an adventure. Normally I am the one to help install the dock but putting it in a new spot is always interesting. It took us several hours (probably around 5 spread over two days). However, it is done and looking awesome and ready to use. I love this spot. It is so cozy and makes me feel at home. Some day I want to live in a place like this, on the water in the woods secluded from most of the world.

Also on this trip we did some quick plant shopping for my Grandmother’s pots around the yard. I spent most of the time just soaking in the beautiful colors, while also occasionally making suggestions to use all of the colors instead of just choosing one color petunia. I couldn’t help but snap a few photos of the lovely colors.

With that I will leave you for the day. I’ll be back later in the week with some knitting progress, but for now, hope that your June is filled with picnics on the beach, beautiful flowers, bright colors, iced tea on the patio, friends and family, and of course knitting.
