DIY Ceramic Mobile + Wind Chime

DIY Ceramic Mobile + Wind Chime

I'm excited to share this project with you guys because it marks my official entry into the world of air dry clay. I know everyone is doing it, at least all the cool kids are (probably explains why I am just now getting my hands dirty... literally). While this is a DIY tutorial on how to make your own fab mobile wind chime, since there are a million and one tutorials on how to use this stuff, I am keeping it short and sweet and just touching on a few of the things I found tricky or helpful.

I mean, this is a DIY blog after all, creative solutions is what we do best here and while we do indeed build things, I have to say the idea of spending hours upon end crafting a custom closet seems entirely unappealing with a 2 year old ruling the roost here at Casa de TDC. At some point along my journey as a mom, I think I began to sacrifice those things I need to feed my soul (I think I'm not alone here), and I'm pretty sure that beautiful and well organized spaces are one of those things that makes my world go round.

The Conservatory's website has a great history detailed on it, and I realize in writing this that many of the dates coincide with my parents and grandparents lives.

Garden Umbrellas!

Garden Umbrellas!

We're going into the winter umbrella season ... ... but I can't help looking back (and forward) to the other season, the one in my Sacramento hometown, that's known as August!
