I have spent a lot of time going through my art supplies in the last year, not just to make jars but also in preparation for our move to a much smaller house.

Although I never make jewellery with them, I have collected a huge number of beads over the years.

Like sequins, they appeal to me because of their regularity and smallness and the way you can use them to make lines in space.

Sometimes bravery is found in the tiniest of things. Like picking up a beloved art project after months of depression and overwhelmed burn-out.

This jar was made and walked way back in January but I didn’t have the energy to blog it at the time.

In truth, I still don’t have much energy but I am moving house in two weeks time and I want to get the project ‘put to bed’ if I can. As the project now stands, I have two jars still to make and three still to walk. Today’s jar is made (hooray!) and will be walked this afternoon. There’s a ton of blogging and email to catch up on but I’m being gentle with myself on that front.
