I also had a nice surprise when I got home, my shamballa kit had arrived. The beads are gorgeous, hematite, which is good if you need grounding, along with some sparkly beads. The first thing I did was to repair my old bracelet, I'd tried before using some stiff cord, but it was too stiff. The result can be seen in the above pic. I referred to the pics on the C&C website, here's the link (if you are interested) Shamballa instructions. It looks complicated, but I assure you it isn't. Once you get the hang of the actual knot, you are away.
Well I hope to have the mandala pattern made over the weekend. I've also got to put the finishing touches to the shadow box. I tried to explain what it was yesterday to John, one of the course leaders, the I said it would be easier to show him. He was very intrigued by embossing powders, frantage and the like, nor had he heard of steampunk! There are a couple of other art classes running alongside the art therapy, so I am hoping to go to either or both! Well it is better than wandering around shops, or being stuck inside, so easy to take the easy option with depression. Both classes are at the same venue as the art therapy, it has plenty of parking and is only a few minutes from home.
So I've got a busy weekend ahead, I've decided to take the bull by the horns and go visit a Christmas fair, can't say I've enjoyed the Christmas stuff coming into the shops. But there is no avoiding it.
Enjoy your weekend, and thank you for stopping by.
