Happy "Maker Monday!"... when I feature something I've made over the course of the previous week and encourage the maker lifestyle.

Yesterday, we all went out of town to go to a place in Punxsutawney PA. The Nomadic Trading Company is a huge building that used to be an 1800's silk milk; now converted to Flea Market, Auction house and Indoor Shopping Village. Needless to say, it was full of cool stuff... and we had a bawl. Off and on, I would remember to take a couple photos...

And then on the way home, we stopped a couple of times to take a short walk in nature.
One of the plants I was taking photos of, was of skunk cabbage --- which has begun to sprout up in swampy areas all over the place.
I was so inspired by the day, that I made the photo at the top of today's post... and I think it is my favorite of the altered photographs that I've made.. or at least, so far.

Also this past week, I was working on a custom order. A lady had written to me; and wanted to buy 50 rosary rings (all with Saint Luke Catholic medals on them) for her son's baptism. She wanted a little something to gift folks who came for the event to take home with them. Such a cool idea! I special ordered the necessary supplies and once they got here, got to work. They should be arriving to her house today.

Hope you all have a great day, and I will see you all back here tomorrow...
