faux glass sun catcher!

Sweet friends,
I woke up this morning to a beautiful, sunny day. Makes me happy since it has been gloomy and wet these past few days. I'm sending warmth and comfort to everyone out there, who patiently braving the coming winter storm [especially to you, Linda Kunsman :)].

I made a simple sun catcher last night, from leftovers of the transparent-book project. I'm too happy that I can set it out on the bedroom's window today :).

I LOVE the woods behind my apartment. I'm lucky to have the living room and the bedroom facing the woods. I usually open the living room's windows wide, get down on my yoga mat and do my practice facing these woods. Yes, with birds singing their hearts out :). The best outdoor yoga I could have without living home!.

The view at noon today. Beautiful day out, isn't it?.

I 'trapped' little silk flowers in between two pieces of transparencies by stitching around to keep them in place. 

With jewelry making tools, I added glass beads, jump rings and a ring binder to make this very simple faux glass sun catcher. Oh, how I wish I have a garden. Then I could make more elaborate sun catchers or even wind chimes and hang them on trees!. Someday.

Making this is super fun because you could add anything to the assemble. Charms, old bangles, origami cranes, scrap fabrics, old cutlery, beads, feathers ... endless craziness! :). I hope this post leaves you much joy. HUGS.
