I put a new tutorial on you tube "IndyWatch Feed Craft"


I was getting ready for a costume design meeting this week and was wishing again that I could easily print all my pins from pinterest to show. There are so many reasons why having actual printed images is valuable to me. I usually do a painful saving of each image and then laying them out in another program, but this time I searched you tube and found a tutorial on how to do it in a few easy steps. No layout program needed and no individual photo manipulation!

However, it went by so fast, like lightening speed, I had to watch it about 10 times to get it. So, I made my own which goes much slower. It's still only 6 minutes, which is how long it took me to print all the images I needed for my meeting. A miracle! I mention at the end of the video this method works for Instagram too, but that's not really true. It will only print about 20 of the favorites, so not as helpful. But I only have about 9 favorites in IG so I didn't know this until later.

I took a mental health day today. Well, that's not true. Really, I have terrible head cold so I am sick. There was family craziness starting at around 2, but I was in bed from 6am-until 2pm, so, I think that's pretty good. I finished Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold and after that I watched Dries, which is a documentary about Dries Van Noten. I can tell it was good for my brain and creativity. They both are streaming on Netflix right now.

Daily life has been hard, we have head colds and fevers that won't quit, some sudden ER and doctor visits, I had surgery (no more gallbladder for me!) and then toss in a few out of town gymnastics meetsthis has all been in the last 3 weeks, so I feel like just getting dressed has been a victory for me. But, I have had a ton of help and I keep asking for help when I need it (always?) This is a huge improvement for me, in the past I usually am broken before I will asked for help.


Copper Wire Lapis Cross "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

by Daune Price-Hannah. (Moody, Tx) I designed this handmade custom cross. It starts with a hammered base copper frame. I use 28 gauge dead soft copper wire to form the weave on 22 gauge base wires.
