Ocean/Water Beaded Animals

September 22, 2018 Lisa 0

So…a week or so ago I finally realized what the strange traffic patterns that Google Analytics kept showing me meant: people trying to reach my old art gallery were getting redirected sideways into this post. These poor visitors from Pinterest wanted to see bead animals, not nail art. And my Read More

Dart Gun Mod - Hermit Werds - the insides of the dart gun

Walking Backwards into a (dart) Gun Mod

Marie Kondo’s method of decluttering doesn’t really work for me because I have too many things that spark joy. LOL I just went through a clothing purge in March/April and yet here I’ve had to go through it again. I got rid of half my wardrobe this time and you Read More

Egg Carton Critters - Hermit Werds - a spider, lady bug and some scorpions made from egg cartons

Egg Carton Critters – Moira’s First Bugs

March 29, 2018 Lisa 0

Ever since my stepdaughter and I completed a mermaid craft kit together, I’ve been plotting to do more crafts with her since we had so much fun. Egg carton creatures seemed like a perfect project. The cost of materials is small and we eat a lot of eggs because, as Read More

#DailyOrigami2007 - Hermit Werds - A Completed Year

#OrigamiDaily2007 – The Eight Best Models

January 11, 2018 Lisa 0

You might be aware of my goal to finish off an old origami daily calendar from 2007 in 2017. I started off the year with daily origami posts to Instagram. And then I started posting my nail art more and more… Long story short, since origami was not an art Read More

#origamidaily2007 - Frogs

#origamidaily2007 – July

July 30, 2017 Lisa 2

I was looking forward to folding the frogs, but I didn’t think I would enjoy this month as much as I did. The fish were a lot of fun and I learned how to swivel pleat (see the fan tail fish’s instructions). The origami I was a little worried about Read More

Origami from June - Hermit Werds - #origamidaily2007

#origamidaily2007 – End of June

July 4, 2017 Lisa 2

June was supposed to be origami butterflies and utter happiness. I wasn’t as happy with the results as I wanted to be, sadly. I was hoping to find a butterfly that would translate well on a really small scale and I’m just not feeling it with any of these. I Read More

Origami from May - Hermit Werds - Dragonfly and Lily

#origamidaily2007 – End of May

May 26, 2017 Lisa 0

This month we round the corner on flowers and move into the insect origami that I wanted to fold. I started with a dud of a flower that ripped in multiple places and I was not enjoying myself. So I found a different flower to fold and chucked the other Read More

Origami from April - Hermit Werds - Lily and Leaf

#origamidaily2007 – End of April

May 2, 2017 Lisa 2

So I decided to fold these origami groupings once a month or so instead of trying to get it all done at once. I have enough to last until the end of the year. I definitely fell behind in my intentions, but no one called me on so I guess Read More

#OrigamiDaily2007 - March's Origami

#origamidaily2007 – End of March

March 30, 2017 Lisa 0

Another month of the origami calendar come and gone. I actually folded and photographed nearly everything for March in less than a day. Yet I had to ask myself: was it worth that day? I’ve seen the work of real origami artists. The origami in this calendar is cute (sometimes), Read More

#OrigamiDaily2007 - February's Origami

#origamidaily2007 – End of February

February 28, 2017 Lisa 0

Another month’s worth of origami (and/or paper crafts) done. It really hasn’t been two hard to keep up with the pre-photographed origami, but the month is over and I am supposed to be making a decision on whether or not I want to continue posting them daily on Instagram. I Read More
