When I am not making jewelry, hanging out at the beach, writing, or working in my garden, I can be found drawing. I've always like to draw but hated to have to draw a likeness of something. Zentangling, however, is a completely different thing altogether. I spend the best part of every day in a zen state while drawing whatever patterns find me, focused but relaxed.

In thrift or antique stores, I simply cannot resist looking for tins. I most certainly have enough already, but the collection continues to grow. Alright, I guess that qualifies as an obsession. Let's add beads and findings to that list. Or really any single thing related to jewelry-making. But back to the tin. I love finding beads to go with the color palette of the any given piece of tin. The other day I snagged a few tins at Goodwill, and here is what resulted. Disc-cutting, filing, dapping, hole-punching, riveting - such fun tools! I hate it when I make something and then can't part with it!
