Steampunk test

Your result for The Steampunk Style Test...

The Ragamuffin

39% Elegant, 28% Technological, 37% Historical, 28% Adventurous and 60% Playful!

You are the Ragamuffin, the embodiment of steampunk playfulness. Chances are, you approach the genre from a much more casual and lighthearted standpoint than most other fans. To you, there is always an element of play inherent in the genre, and you may very well enjoy fashion as much for the opportunity to dress up as for the style itself. You probably wear goggles as an accessory, and rarely as actual eye-protection. Your outfits are likely to incorporate a lot of brown or cream, and combine large boots, Victorian corsets or vests, aviator caps or bowler hats, and gypsy skirts or slacks, simply because you like them all.

This is my siamese pain. She is ALWAYS hungry. I've never seen a cat like her. She is perfectly healthy, no problems, but she is like a dog. When the wet food is passed out amongst all the cats, she eats hers in 2 bites and then proceeds to finish everyone else's plate too. If she can't grab it in her mouth, the she waits, and the paw comes out and she grabs the food off the plate. When there isn't another morsel left ANYWHERE, she curls up and goes to sleep in her favorite cat bed. I have a favorite quote painted on a sign in my bedroom.

There is no snooze button on a cat who wants breakfast.

That pretty much says it all.

you are lightcyan

Your dominant hues are green and blue. You're smart and you know it, and want to use your power to help people and relate to others. Even though you tend to battle with yourself, you solve other people's conflicts well.

Your saturation level is very low - you have better things to do than jump headfirst into every little project. You make sure your actions are going to really accomplish something before you start because you hate wasting energy making everyone else think you're working.

Your outlook on life is very bright. You are sunny and optimistic about life and others find it very encouraging, but remember to tone it down if you sense irritation.

Is it over already?

Is my weekend over already? I had so much fun this weekend, working on jewelry projects, I just don't know where the time went. Why do Mondays come around so fast?

I thought I would try my hand at this. This is the fifth project in Mary Hettmansperger's book "Wrap, Stitch, Fold and Rivet". Mary calls it her "Wrapped Beads" necklace. She used sheet metal and encased her beads inside the pod form by drawing a bead on the bottom of her wire, inserting the beads into the pod and wrapping the wire at the top. I used some copper mesh that I had in my stash of useful (less) metal pieces, and some of my massive bead stash, wrapped some wire, and this is what I came up with. Cute, no?
