Definition: Aggregate is a collection of items that are gathered together to form a total quantity.

The fleeting moments of knowledge in which we discover our existence are facts that can be committed to memory. We can enlarge this aggregate memory and refashion it as we go through a lifetime. By saving these memories on paper and reconstructing the images of our lives. We see the art of our lives unfolding before us.

Face the brilliance of your most wonderful creations and dwell on your dreams.
I believe in teaching, the sharing of ideas and playfulness of creating.

Laugh a Little More....

Happy Valentine's Day-!!

I love to laugh out loud and often. Just makes things feel alright.
My wish for you today is to Laugh often with the ones that you love.
Brilliant, Right?!

This pendant was made with a leftover watercolor that I had done recently. I glued it down onto a bit of wood piece that I found at the craft store. Stamped the Chick of "Starbird with Chick" stamp in Stazon black ink. Added the Laugh text from a Tim Holtz ChitChat book. Then I used Ice Resin to cap once dry about 24 hours I added the bail to the back of the wood with E6000.


  1. Love love that Sarinda.... This bird and your background are just wonderful put like that on a jewel. I MUST buy Ice Resin too I think, unless Glossy Accents can replace it ? Do you have a good advise for me ? And regarding the E6000 glue you mention and that I don't have, do you know another similar product could work or no ?... H'm... :) Coco xx

  2. Hi Ladies....
    Thank you so much for your kind words... Glossy Accents is water soluble So I would not trust it. Ice Resin in the syringe is so easy. Just make sure you have a mini cup and wooden craft stick to stir. As for E6000 You can get it at any craft store. I use this for my glass pendants and it has not failed me in over 14 years. I think this might be a tutorial worthy project with a video? What to you think?

    1. Yes, please! :) Would also love to know how the nice rounded corners were achieved (i.e. was the wood rounded? Just adorable, Sarinda! Val :)

  3. This is beautiful, and perfect for being one of a kind. Have a great weekend xx
