June is done - Double Infinity
When will i ever learn how to make an entry? I just lost it in cyberspace again - UGH!!! Anyway, it went something like this...
The other day when I was working on this month'd button my youngest came in and said "Mommy - June isn't black - I think you got it wrong this month." But here is why it works for me: June is my birth month and I'm not getting any younger, June is also my Dad's birth month and he died 4 years ago, June is also Father's Day on which i was born so many years ago, but now it is a sad day for me. Thus - black works for June, see?
And the focal bead is just amazing! I usually work with a piece I've owned for awhile, but i just found this the other day when we were getting a yellow tee shirt for my daughter's play... The shiny black base rising into a brilliant silver, and those 3 little glass bits - they remind me of my daddy's blue eyes.
There is so much sparkle in this piece, it doesn't seem dark to me at all. It resembles a geode from which good things can be found deep inside. Like the month of June. The photo does not do this piece justice at all.
Please visit the FLICKR page where you can click on a picture and go to that persons page. HOpe you enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoyed making it. Gotta go hang it on my wall now...
