AEDM-Day 28

I had a quiet, restful, and productive day yesterday and am hoping for another today.

I just learned through one of my Yahoo! groups that a steampunk tutorial is available for making dominoes with metal and bling. The tut can be found at Funky Time Art. I am looking forward to trying this style but first I have to find some two part resin for the finish. The tutorial actually gives a link to a source, so I don't really have to find it, but I have to purchase it.

I finished up my tags for a swap in another of my Yahoo! groups, but didn't really get much information about them. I posted a message asking about size, but didn't get an answer, so I made them a size that pleased me and am hoping that is good. Here they are:

I also finished up a card that I am swapping with a friend from one of my Yahoo! groups, but won't show it yet because she might read this and I don't want to spoil the surprise. Both this card and the tags will go out in Monday's mail.

I cannot believe it is so close to Christmas! This year has flown by and I don't feel ready. We are trying to have a "green" Christmas this year. By that I don't mean "without snow", but making and remaking items to give rather than buying new. I don't know if we will accomplish this completely, but with that as our mindset, we are sure to come up with some "from the heart" gifts that will be treasured by the receivers.

I am looking forward to lunch (I haven't had breakfast, yet) because I still have the hoarseness and cough which I will treat with a bowl of my homemade turkey rice soup. The secret to this years special flavor is just a bit of leftover gravy in the broth and just a pinch of tarragon at the end of the cooking process.

The picture is not so great, but the soup is delicious!

I am hoping to have an artful, productive day and will share it with you tomorrow.



  1. I love turkey soup! Fun tags. Hope you feel better soon.

  2. I like the blue one! I make turkey orzo soup for Thanksgiving every year. My family really enjoys it.

  3. thanks for visiting me and I very much enjoyed your soup recipe and your art.
    Get well soon.

  4. Two more days of AEDM, Vicki! We have kept up so far. Only 2 more! I've enjoyed it, but I'm ready to do something else for a while. LOL

    Your tags are great and the soup looks good! :)

  5. Your soup looks yummy! No doubt it will help you to heal faster. The tags are great!

  6. I love to throw a little of the extra gravy in the soup, too ... thickens it a bit and uses it up LOL! Love your tags ...
