2 packages of $1.25 modeling clay from the dollar store. A $1.00 clay plant pot from a thrift store. Two $1.00 pots of brown craft paint, a $1.00 pot of puzzle sealer and two beads! First time I’ve ever used modeling clay.

Second coin carving. 1967 Canadian penny. Used the same tools as I did for the Hobo Nickel. A couple of dollar store wood chisels, a sewing needle and a small hammer for putting watch cases together. Basically all the wrong equipment but I really wanted to try this and couldn’t wait for my supplies to arrive.

I usually dismantle non functioning watches and use the parts in other projects, but these six seemed to go together so well that I made a bracelet out of them.

Made a pendant out of a penny, some watch gears and a little etching.

The watch movement in this one can be wound and still runs! Gives it a bit of life.

I sew too.  My nephew wanted an Enderman Pillow.  Made this in about 2.5 hours with no pattern. Also discovered that buying pillows and using the batting inside  is way cheaper than buying batting by itself! Go figure.
