Survival Pedometer ~Beadwork

Find out how many steps it takes You to walk 100 yards.

Count steps & slide one bead for each 100 yds.

approx. 18 beads = one mile

Then slide a ‘mile’ bead & start over.This one goes up to 5mi.

Counting on a long trek could make You go nutz, I suggest getting an electronic one ❗️

My Homemade Kite Collection

In 1986, while living in Park City, Utah, my father gave me 100 yards of assorted Rip-Stop Sail Cloth. I had just finished refurbishing a 1950’s Singer, acquired while ‘dumpster diving’, so I became a Kite Maker. (If Nature gives ya lemons ya make lemon-aide right❕ Homemade Eight foot Box Delta.

Ceramic Skull Night Light

I Had to be careful glazing & double firing to keep colors from melding.

I use a miniature base 140 volt bulb that has been burning 24/7 for 15 years now❗️

(house wiring is only 117 volts)
