Shrinking Art Pendant Making

etched pendants 08 073
I am very much enjoying making these pendants out of shrinkable plastic lately.
My daughter has this great shirt with some fun designs and color combos that
have been making their way into these little works of art.
Prisma colors work wonderful as well as Sharpies and permanent fine markers.

My baby Bee named the kitties last 2 names and then the first part was all me for I kinda like that song from Plain White T's. Marta is from our lovely grey cat that just passed and the vanilla is because she loves everything about vanilla ;)

*In general, the Market is open rain or shine. If rain is coming, we may open early, but we won't close unless dangerous weather seems likely. We will close for big thunderstorms with nearby lightening strikes or high winds. We want our vendors and customers to be safe. But we are not deterred by mere rain and we hope that you won't be either. Bring your umbrella!

*Any Farmer, artist, musician, craftsmen, restaurant, local business or organizations interested in setting up Wednesdays 2-4pm, even for promotion purposes, please call:
Stephanie at #512-1209 for details.

Thank-You!!!
