Sometimes I take breaks from sketching and make my own jewelry. I like to bead and I like to wire wrap. I avoid most techniques which involve heat (because I don't like the smells and I don't want to wear out my eyes—even with protection I'm worried about torches causing cataracts). But that still leaves my whimsy a lot of leeway.
I got the best comments from the 5- to 10-year-old group when I wore this at various times in the last two months of 2010.
Exercise your whimsy today. Make something, paint something, sketch something that reflects who you are.
