yesterday at Lowe's i picked up a drill press for $99 (brand name is "Task Force"). jeff put it together today and then we had shop class on learning how to use it. pretty easy to use and it drills holes in seconds! going to save so much work by not having to drill things by hand. Now i just have to find some way to make it a little more girlie looking!
Creating is my key to another time. It unlocks the gate to my secret garden; my refuge. It takes me to another era where things were simpler and I find the process soothing to my soul. Lemoncholy’s Studio began with my fondness for vintage items. Searching flea markets, I find items long forgotten, sometimes damaged, but still purposeful. They just need some love and attention. I want these found objects to tell a new story, have meaning and to be inspiring. I have a vision for them to begin again. Intuitively I combine elements in an enchanting way to provoke a narrative response that alludes to something we seek without knowing it. Often, it is a reminder of our childhood. My jewelry is about craftsmanship and virtue but not perfection. By removing perfectionism, I free my imagination to play and ultimately, this freedom results in whimsical pieces of grace and beauty. I am a grown up Navy brat and moved every 2 years of life. This education in life has well prepared for the journey i have chosen for myself. I am the mother of 2 boys, Tucker and Dillon. We live here at the jersey shore in our own little bohemian corner of the world.
