I could single handedly drink enough wine to start a cork collection. So I did. I aspire to create my own cork board, with all of my corks which I have saved. I just had to make getting drunk productive! My finished product is soon to come.

...Welllll, maybe not so soon. I think I was overestimating my overconsumption. That’s a first. I might have to employ some of my lovely wine drinking friends to carry out the cork collection task with me. Any volunteers please let me know.

If however, you do not wish to join the booze bunch, pull your weight around here anyway and help me decide which design to choose.

I went to New York City last summer for the first time. It is an incredible place with so many things to do. I had just got there and I felt like I had to rush to see everything. We were walking through central park in a hurry to see an exhibit. We came across the beautiful sound of an oversized instrument being played by a man under a tunnel-like bridge. The shape of the bridge gave the music a pleasant acoustic sound that bellowed through the park. I quickly took a picture, threw him a couple dollars, and rushed on my way. On our flight back I thought about our trip and I regretted not slowing down. I wished I had of sat on the conveniently located park bench next to the musician, and listened to his tunes for awhile.

About a month after our trip, I started painting the man, with oils on canvas by looking at the picture which I had taken the day in central park. With my school life bombarding me I put the painting on hold. One of these days I will learn to walk slowly.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude... but sometimes it can be incredibly selfish. That’s why I don’t support a move back to the homeland as she would wish. However, I can cross my fingers and sympathize. I get homesick if I go too long without my mother’s home fried pork chops and gravy, so, it has to be rough. Kudos to you, for being so strong and independent.

I have had this little project on the back burner for quite some time. I have been holding on to these charms for a few months with the intentions to create this bracelet. Each bead of this bracelet was hand wound and clasped. It will be a gift for my Canadian sister in law.
