Frozen inspired Mala by Alycat
Frozen inspired Mala
This 108 bead Mala is inspired by Disney's "Frozen" and I call it "The Snow Queen" for obvious reasons.  It consists of frosted quartz, aquamarine and clear quartz hand knotted on 100% silk cord. 

What I found particular interesting is that one of the metaphysical properties of Aquamarine is helping people "let go" of that which no longer serves them, so I thought it was rather appropriate to incorporate it into this piece since it also happens to be a pretty close match for Elsa's dress color.  :D 
Hulk Smashes Head by Joey (Joe's Trick) Equine by Alycat
Hulk Smashes Head by Joey (Joe's Trick) Equine
This is one of Joey's first attempts at painting (and eating the brush) and a friend of mine commented that it looked like the Hulk.  So I joking said, "What, after he smashes someone's head?" and she replied, "YES!"  So the title of this rather bizarre piece was born. 

What happens when Joey paints is this.  I put paint on the brush and hand it to him.  He tries to eat it.  I try to take it from him.  He bites down on the brush and I hold the canvass out to him where he then puts the brush onto the canvass, sometimes he moves it around.  Other times he drops it.  Many times he drops the brush onto the floor (I should take a picture of the front of his stall and the floor) where I pick it up and hand it back to him.  Then he tries to eat it.  And the cycle starts all over again.  But he gets really excited when he hears me pull out the paints and such, so I know he enjoys something about it. 

No, he doesn't choose the colors and no, he has no idea what he's doing.  :XD:

I'm trying to get a video of him painting, but it's hard to track down people to help film and things are set up in the barn that it's not very tripod friendly.  Add in the fact that Joey is a moody SOB and not always in a good place to paint, and it's doubly kind of difficult.

This particular painting kicked off what I'm calling his "Avengers" series.
Mapel leaf Necklace by Alycat
Mapel leaf Necklace
I mentioned in my journal that I've started to make necklaces and 108 bead Mala.  This is an example of a necklace I made for a friend of mine.  It consists of genuine petrified wood, pietersite, jade and a silver dipped real maple leaf.  :) 
Joey holding the brush by Alycat
Joey holding the brush
Here's Joey holding his preferred paint brush (or trying to eat said paint brush, take your pick).  Here he's going, "WTF am I supposed to do with this?!"

Current Residence: Southern Bible Belt
Favourite genre of music: Almost Anything.
Operating System: Mac OS X! HUZZAAAAAAH!
MP3 player of choice: My ipod, of course. ^^
Shell of choice: Chocolate!
Skin of choice: Um, my own?
Favourite cartoon character: WAY too many to name. ^_^
Personal Quote: Life is too short to regret our choices.
But my other horse, the one that's going blind, paints.  Granted, it's mostly holding the brush in his mouth, trying to each the brush, and flinging paint everywhere, but he does put the brush to canvass and transfers paint to it.  So that counts, right?  I'm trying to get a decent video of it (that doesn't involve a lot of him dropping the brush everywhere but on the canvass as he's still figuring it all out) but I do have everything he's done on camera.  I should upload them.

I've also discovered a love of hand knotting jewelry (kind of like hand knotting pearls, only I use different materials). I started out making 108 bead Mala, and I kind of keep that design but I can now make necklaces of various lengths.  It's pretty neat!

Still writing, my bridge novella in the Goopsverse is out now.  Title is "Cracked" and I'm hard at work revising Book 2.  :)
