Shhhhh..don't tell!

I've been home sick the past two days...supposedly bad chinese food. I actually played hookie because I just didn't feel like going in. Bad, I know! I never really feel like I have time to do what I want to do, even on the weekends it's always rush to cram as much into the two days off that you can and you end up tired Monday morning anyway.So I did what I wanted to for two hole days!

When I was in junior high english , Mrs. Blackstock made us read Shakespear. Not really into all the thee's, yea,'s and thines but the crib notes were fab! One that has always facinated me was "A Midsummer Night's Dream"...no, I haven't read it,but the synopsis is full of plot's, love,deceit,magic and fairies...what more could you ask for?

I've made two interpretations of the play...the first is called A Midsummer Night's Dream




The second piece is called Titania Queen of the Fairies for the fairie queen who is deceived by her husband King Oberon.





I'm outta steam right now and my eyes are crossed from all that tiny wire wrapping, so I guess it's back to work for me tomorrow...but it was a nice break from working the assembly line at Harley!

Love those Titania earrings!

You know, you should be really careful what you put on your blog...especially admitting to playing hooky. Employers do sometimes read these!
