day 154. Pop tab candle holder second try

My project for today. Lissa asked my if she could order the candle holder I made when get to each 50 items of my project.  I had to confess something becaus of this question. I will show you after I show the second try of making the candle holder



My first try looked like this


It looked perfect didn't it. In reality it was not perfect at all. My first try at making these did not fit at all. They were too big. Because I shot the photo in a lower angle you did not see it. But here it is in a higher angle. See the room it has on the left. My second try solved this problem. I have some other ideas I want to try out.

day 153 Qoute pop tab painting "Every cloud has a silver linning"

Finally I was able to make something for this project again. I was too stress out lately studying for upcoming exams, writing reports, etc. Just too much to do to focus on something relaxing. At the moment I am feeling more in control again and felt like making something just for fun again. Here it is :)

day 137. 3 pop tab candle holders

Made it to day 150. But not sure how much further this project is going to get. My life besides this project is really busy. I am working a full time job and am studying at night to get my Bachelor of health degree. I hope to finish this study in januari 2013. My study has my priority over this project. The last few weeks I started skipping some days and doing 2 items the next day. I am just to busy or tired on those days to focus on this project. I will try to keep this project going, but I am not sure if I am going to make it to the end.

day 132. Blue pop tab butterfly fridge magnet

Today I photographed and listed the 5 other keychain angels. I finally have the feeling I am getting some where. Only 5 items left at the moment that I want to photograph and list. When I started my shop had only 6 listings. I now have 57 items. One of my goals was helping my etsy shop grow, and that is happening. Due to all my experiments that succeded and failled I came up with a few items that really have that something extra. Still few things to do to fill my shop up more and I can start experimenting again.

 Today the blue version of the butterfly, only 2 other colors of this one to go
