I have been mostly out in the woods lately. I spent the last few days at home messing around with rocks and sticks and feathers.
I collect these legally, they’re all either domestic fowl or game birds- a few pigeon (rock dove) feathers in there as well.
The rocks- I’m learning some macrame. It’s interesting. I love tying knots!
I’m going to try to get out to the coast this week for an early morning low tide. My sleep schedule has been fucked lately- but for right now it works, because I don’t work until sunday.
I’ll be at the shop sunday and monday this week.
I’ve got three awesome pieces coming in, one which I’ve been looking forward to for a while, and a coverup. I’ll be sure to post the stories as well as the photos this week.
til then, rocks, and sticks. and feathers. I like my hobby. A lot.

Probably because of the bad weather, this past spring has been great for collecting. So I have just been trying to catch up with finishing and processing some of my finds.
I’ve got almost twenty skulls to work with, forty or fifty pounds of stone, countless feathers and plants, and some dried flowers. I also got some preservation things for ferns and flowers. AND new drill sets for rock, AND I’ve been working on all these small paintings, minis and ACEOs.
However today I broke out the drill and worked with stone. I love drilling rocks. It is a very zen task. Picking through, finding the ones I think will hang best.
I ordered the gear to work with agate too- I have a lot of jasper and agate just waiting to be cut, or polished, or just drilled. So far I have stuck with sandstone and mudstone and invertebrate or bivalve fossils.
Here are a few more sets of drilled river and beach rocks- these are drilled through for stringing.

Tattooed today, but spent the last few days printing on vellum and drilling holes in beach stones.
I’ll have a tattoo update tomorrow night, here are some rocks and things for you in the meantime!
