Luckily, our weather seems to be a little more settled now after weeks of drought. August is like a taste of fall sometimes - and my favorite time to get some artsy stuff done.
Got any road trips planned? Sometimes spur of the moment journeys are an exciting way to find new places.
I got dragged out of my comfort zone on one last month, in July, but it was worth it. I came home with a few little odd bits to make into garden art and some rustic crafts.
Some of my latest projects were also out of the ordinary; the Encrusted Cannonballs were not something I would normally tackle, but the final result was outstanding.
This is a good month to cut some slender willow stems and make a few wreaths. There are a few months to dry them out so they're ready to make into Christmas decor.
This has been a good year for inspiration. Here are some projects that I have for sale in various places around here.
So that's it for this issue of Rurality. Here's hoping the weather continues fine but not too hot, and I'll get lots done.
A few things I would like to try are some spider webs made of wire, and some attendant spiders made of wire with beads for their bodies and legs. I'll try not to make them too scary!
