I had a lot of friends who generously donated their time and helped edit my novel, and in lieu of payment, I offered to give them handmade art objects. Some people chose which art objects they wanted, but for those who didn’t specify, I made smiley balls. As people who have been to this site before have noted, I make a lot of smiley balls. They’re easy, they make me happy, and they make great gifts.
I didn’t have time for a proper photo session, as this one went to its new home before my table got cleared of its latest project.
