Saturday was another lovely day at the Artist Market.  I managed to finish lots of new earrings, including several pairs using the Bronze Clay.  I tried out a few of my silver designs and they transfer really well to bronze.  They are much harder to hammer but the result is a very light earring, even lighter than the silver, which means I can go even bigger with my designs!  It was such a fun day and the weather was perfect.   There was an occasional gust of wind and at one point one of my earring stands blew over and sent two earrings flying.  I fixed the stand but I didn't notice for a few minutes and suddenly, in a panic wondered why I was missing a pair.  It occurred to me to look in front of my table and there they were, about a foot in front of the table and a foot apart from each other, just lying there, helpless.  Luckily they had not been stepped on and it was as if I could feel their relief when I rescued them.  I imagined they had been crying out "MOMMY!"  I know, I know.  They're just earrings, but they're all my babies!  
    Speaking of babies, there were so many puppies around.  This adorable little one was just chillin' in a bag.  Thus the Market pic of the day.

On Sunday I went for a bike ride with Claudia and sadly realized that it had been 7 years since I was last on a bike! But, it was just like riding a bicycle so it was all good.  We rode on the causeway and the lake was just magnificent!
