Christmas Angel

I decided to make a angel for my Christmas tree that I am going to have this year! She is still missing wings and possibly a halo but as of right now I like her! The head and hands are made from sculpy, which I have never used, I used some cotton balls for her hair and then an assortment of ribbon, lace and fabric for her clothes.
This is my first project where I have sculpted anything, so the proportions are a bit off (her lips stick out to much) I plan on sculpting more though because I really enjoyed doing this! I will perfect it yet!

Winter Fun Activity Booklet


 I've recently got into making these small activity booklets. They are really easy for me to make and I enjoy doing them. I was inspired by my friend Ami Moore and the booklet she did http://amimoore.blogspot.ca/2012/07/c-is-for.html
I have done an Easter one as well as this Christmas one and hope to continue doing them.
You can purchase these booklets on my Etsy! Check it out here https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/166881899/winter-fun-activity-book-for-children?ref=shop_home_active

Above are some of the things I got from the show! I was super excited to see this print (below) amongst the sea of images! I love Kiki's delivery service and this is just perfect! You can find more of her artwork at http://brownrabbits.tumblr.com/

Stumbled upon this and so glad I did. A craft exchange! What a clever idea, I can't wait to start mine!

Sewing Project: A Clutch

I found a really easy tutorial on how to make a clutch on Pinterest (link below) and decided to try it out. It turned out pretty good I think. I will be making some more of these for sure.

Etsy Shop

Finally after years upon years of saying that I would create an Etsy shop, I have finally done it!
My hope is to add at least one thing to my shop every month. Next up is Valentines day so I should have some valentines day cards up by the end of the month in time for February 14th!

advanced style



So a friend had recently posted a video about older stylish women living in New York, which is to be a documentary coming out...here is the link...

Within in the first 10 seconds I knew it was going to be great! All I could think about while watching it is how colorful these women looked and how much I wanted to draw them..so that is what I have decided to do! Here are the first two drawings I have done so far, and more will follow :)

A design for flip flops!

Just playing around with a few things. This piece isn't fully finished, but for the moment I'm happy with it.

Another strange image that I made...just fooling around and this came out of it. I think it kinda looks like it could be an emperor or something.

Sunday, April 18, 2010

I was erasing an image when I was left with a shape that looked like a face. So this face came out of it and I was happier with it then I thought I would be. I plan to do a series of these.
This was a place mat I designed and made as part of my thesis.
I'm happy with the result :)
