I thought I would have more time to get my entry done in time, but the two shows in this month have kicked my tail in getting anything else done. Sorry, but I will have to sit this one out  :(

Okay, everyone, the contest is almost over, which means it's that time again to ask....Do we need to extend the deadline a week? :P We know life can get a little crazy, so if anyone is almost done but could use a couple extra days, please let us know! Otherwise, we'll stick with our original deadline of entries posted by November 1.

I'm soooo sorry guys, life has definitely gotten in the way for me, I forgot to announce the contest. So I went ahead and extended it to 11/15.
Hope everyone doesn't mind, but my world has been upside down literally and I don't want the contest to flop. Thanks for understanding.

I'm gonna use instrumental jazz music as my inspiration, and just listen to itover and over to get the feel for the music, then just make something inspired by that feeling :)



That's how I came up with this!I was listening to Brian Culbertson and it just kinda flowed! 8)

Nice,  it shows:-)

Ok, this is my entry for the music challenge.

Musicians: Ron carter Quartet,
Album title:Piccolo
Track title: Sunshower

I listened to the track several times, tried dancing to it then interpreted the sounds and my movements onto paper and translated the marks I made to leather. It was really fun and I started a second one which I'll post here when its done.

The purse is new too, its partly machine stitched and partly hand stitched, its lined in black pigskin. Its light and soft and strong:-)

Finally a contest I have an entry for. I don't know why but whenever I try to make something in a specific theme my mind goes in a totally different direction and I can't come up with anything. But I made a brooch recently that was inspired by a song. I hope it still qualifies, especially since I've already sold it.
Anyway, here it is

Inspired by the Abney Park song The Clockyard from their Æther Shanties album.



I could hear the song in my head the whole time I was making it and every time I look at it, like right now.

Here is my entry...Jazz song..."Freddie Freeloader" by Miles Davis.

I cut, hummed, filed, shaped, danced, hammered, soldered, and polished while listening to the great music of Miles Davis.

Jazzed to be a part of this contest.
