Day 2, bouncing right through

Are you ready for my progress of the day? I had decided that I would go through the day the way I would if I was actually at work. I began at my usual starting time. OK, I was 5 minutes late. I had emails to catch up with first. I planned on taking breaks at the same time I normally do at work.
My scruffy looking little puppy appointed himself the time keeper. He is going to the groomer on Friday, by the way.

One hour in to my day I hear him barking at the basement door. That means he needs to go outside. Or so I thought. When I got to the basement, he was standing at the foot of the stairs with a toy in his mouth.  Apparently first break was going to come a little early today.
Yesterday I said that I wasn't completely satisfied with the flowers in the can. They just didn't look like they were done to me. An idea hit me and I finished off the three from yesterday and did one more. Now I'm satisfied.

I also finished four more necklaces.

Made four cards.

and six more magnets. (The magnets are stuck on a metal sign if you are wondering what that is behind them. I wasn't going for perfect photos today)
I worked on one thing until I got bored or frustrated then I went on to something else. I bounced back and forth between the four projects until about 1:00 and then I called it a day.
The pictures aren't as good as they could be but it was rainy this morning, and windy this afternoon. I had to take these inside and the lighting really stinks. To make matters worse I took them in that awful red room that I haven't painted yet. Oh well. That's my progress for the day.

Awesome, Ann, they look great. You've been busy. I love the little sayings on the pots, so cute. You are so much ahead of me on the making of crafts, I haven't begun my mugs yet. What a procrastinator I am! I'll be working on them beginning this coming weekend I do believe.

I love the flowers! (Came over from Daisy's blogroll, by the way.)

LDH said...

Great day 2! I love the cards!

Erika said...

Yes! The tags really added to the cans.
How far away are you? I know I would love to see your booth.

Helen said...

Wow, you did all that in just a few hours! I love the sunflower cans. I saved some empty chip cans. I might borrow your idea. Did you write the sentiments; they look really cute.

Sher said...

I first fell in love with your owl, then your necklaces, and now, those flowers in the cans are adorable and I love the little signs that hang from them. Don't forget to take pictures of your table. I can't wait to see it all come together. I'm afraid though that your table will be bare in no time. Beautiful work!!!

The tags are perfect! You made a lot of progress today which I find amazing since cute little Duke would have distracted me all day!

Anny said...

That's quite a lot of progress for a half a day :) Love the fridge magnets.

Oh Ann ... you have been busy and what a lovely selection. The pendants have come out beautifully - you must be so pleased with how they look. Love the cards ... going to be a little bit cheeky now and ask is the writing on the bottom printed or is it freehand (pen and ink).

A little howdy-do-dee to Duke!!

FishHawk said...

Don't you know that scruffy is the new well-groomed? Maybe you didn't get the memo. Oh yeah, your progress is proceeding.

Marg said...

The pots are especially good. Wow, you did get busy. Time for a day off now. Duke is looking good too and happy to have you home. Love all your stuff. Have a great day.

Duni said...

Your work is amazing, Ann. I love it! And those tags on the flowerpots add a sweet finishing touch. I LOVE the one that says "sew seeds of kindness".
Hugs to Duke :) He must be so happy you're home!

I really like the cans with the tags now, and I think the crocheted chains look better with the wood disks- same as you do!

What can you charge for things like this?
