Hands down, Sally Jean Alexander's was the best project class I've ever taken. Thanks to those at Santa Cruz Crafter's Studio for giving me a jump start on how to solder or I would have been lost.

I have so many interests and sometimes feel so spread thin. I am truly a Jill of all trades, mistress of none but that doesn't lessen my enjoyment of each of them. Watching Spencer race around the sheep paddock, playing basic ukulele in a jam, singing in a choir, playing with artsy things--I enjoy them all. Thus, the theme of this little piece: Dilettante!

This tiny house is supposed to have a flickering tea candle inside to allow the images to glow through, but my collage background is a bit too thick so I created a Sun House! It sparkles in the sun, happy to be in the light. Of course, there's more solder
ing work to do on the sides, but I must post now or probably forever fail to do so. (Click on the images to enlarge & view detail.)
Thanks Sally Jean!

Wonderful house! I particularly like that you put Spencer gazing outward. I am totally in the dilettante boat with you.

Can I get in the Dilettante boat with you and Joanne? Or would it sink? I see that you have become quite the expert at soldering. Your house is charming.

This is wonderful! I love that you can put a tea light inside of it. I always pick up that book at the bookstore and admire her work. So glad you stopped by my blog for the OWOH giveaway.

Nice to meet you,
Tammy
