I spent Day 364 home sick in bed. Well actually, I did go to the doctor to get antibiotics for my mangled throat and then I got in bed and slept – a lot. It’s funny, this is what I envisioned doing on January 2nd – minus the sore throat and ear ache! I guess I’ll have to find something else to do now on January 2nd – Like be healthy!
I tried to figure out what I could do from bed today in between resting. I have this giant box of buttons just begging to be played with, so I pulled it out.
First I went through and picked my favorites and then I had to figure out what I wanted to do with them.
I have these gold-plated bangles with an empty bezel in the center. I use to fill them with polymer clay designs and sell them to gift shops. They just happen to be the perfect shape for vintage buttons. I assembled different combinations of buttons and then wired them to the bangles.
Next I made myself a necklace. I tried to make the necklace symmetrical in design yet each button is different. I love that look. I’m definitely not matchy-matchy. I guess you could call me mixy-matchy!
Of course my daughter popped in to see what I was up to and had to join in on the fun. She found the wiring a bit difficult, but as usual, she’s always keeping up with her mom! Her necklace looked great.
So although my head is pounding, and my ears ache, I still made time to be creative. Tomorrow, when I’m feeling better and I’m on my last day of my 365 Challenge, I will now have something fun to wear.
OK. Off to take my evening dose of amoxicillin. Tomorrow I have something fun planned, so I better rest up!
One day left!!! You made it!! Bitter sweet I’m sure.

I love the bracelets. I hope you’re feeling better soon. Do you know what you’re going to do when the 365 day challenge is done? I’m going to miss your posts. I always open them first when I check my emails.
I hope you have a gallery show in the works. Will you let us know?
I am hoping this will not be the end. I love your work and how art is a presence in every day.
