Ariel got the cutest game for Christmas to be played on the Wii. It's called "My Sims", and basically you move into a town, name it, meet the mayor, and then suddenly become the architect, interior designer, grounds keeper and PR person for the town. During play, you get tips and one of the tips is to "build something nice for yourself -- you deserve it".
T-man made me promise years ago that I would make something nifty for myself at least once a year, something that wasn't a sample or a proposal. It had to be something just for me, not for sale and not necessarily to be reproduced. Sometimes I use my own design, and sometimes I use someone else's (like my Scheherazade necklace designed by Liz Smith or my Laura McCabe Dahlia Locket.
Now in doing this, am I being selfish, especially when I design something I don't intend to share?
Anyway, today I think I'll make something quick and easy, just for me. I'll share pics later. Later, kids!
