Just so you know...I've moved..

I know I've been absent again. It was a combination of things...1) I moved. To a house. It's great. 2) My blogger looked like it got hacked, or something?? I got a ton of feeds to hair....websites? It was weird. So I just felt like this is probably a good time to switch to a different platform to share my art and crafts and other randomness. So please please, if you'd be such a dear, come follow me on instagram! You can find me at I will be uploading a lot of stuff to catch up on all I got behind on. I hope to see you there!

Something new! Scarves!

Work is crazy. But that is normal. I've been working for the last month on a huge screen printing order, and thought while I was at it to make some more for my etsy shop! They're uploaded now and ready to be shipped to a good home near you ;)

Tiny little wonders

I got an urge to make some ATCs (Artist Trading Cards), but when I tried to figure out what medium I wanted to play with, suddenly I wanted to get rather 3-D with it....

Vintage ladies were badass too

I love the idea of prayer flags and I have admired many in the past but yet when I try to make them, more times than not I sit with a pile of fabrics and trims, feeling overwhelmed with the choices and underwhelmed with my results. But some sort of magic was in the air when I made this one. It was for a personal swap with a very talented lady who said she liked vintage styles so I took that idea and ran with it. I had an inkodye print of a vintage tattooed lady that I love but didn't do anything with yet. I started with that base and just started adding things. I just love how it all came together and how each element feel like something that could have come from her world, the buttons, the ripped lace, pearls, key...and the look on her face just said "strength" to me so I had to add that too. Kind of funny how appropriate it is considering how prevalent feminism has been lately.

A two inch square of home

When I was still in the throws of love with twinchies (don't worry, I still am, just taking a needed break) I decided to tackle recreating the look of bracket fungi that can be found in my homeland, the Pacific Northwest. I'm sure they can be found elsewhere too, but this was supposed to be a slice from home. I did the fungi in a stumpwork technique and set about to try and mimic the moss through french knots and the like which totally didn't work. I decided to try incorporating real moss which actually ended up looking great. But then the whole thing felt like it was missing I decided to do more fungi! I tried to do the tiny white mushrooms in stumpwork but oh man, I cannot work that tiny. It was an utter failure, so poly clay came out, and the mushrooms took shape through that. I'm still amazed at how harmonious all the materials are with each other. A little piece of home.

Mini altoid tins and what you might do with them

Here are a couple of projects I made recently using some mini altoid tins. I purposely didn't cover them up or try to disguise them...for some reason, I love the juxtaposition of an altoid tin with what they might mysteriously be housing.

Ticker tape quilts done my way

I am not a great quilter. Maybe I'll get better with practice but I don't think I have enough patience for it. But that being said, I found a method of quilting that I have fallen in love with: ticker tape quilts! I've made two different ones so far and it is an awesome project for using up scraps. Now I'm compelled to keep every scrap an inch or bigger!

Tentacle critters!

He's a little shy, but loves to cuddle when he warms up to you.

Made from poly clay, with a real shell, rocks, moss, and covered with a good helping of resin. I'm loving resin lately.

Remember my etsy shop?

Yeah, I still have it! I've added new things over the last half year. More bags and FQs. I tried out a new method for the bag strap which I really like - still scrappy and colorful but I feel like it's more sturdy being wrapped and stitched to cording. I did also try to sell some embroidered twinchies though I didn't have a huge audience for that it seems...I wonder what new products I might come up with this year...any ideas?

Anyway, here's a recap of some of the new stuff available in my shop now! I actually just marked down a lot of the bags so get them while they're hot =)

Did I fall off the face of the earth?

No I did not. I am so sorry for being away so long dear blog readers (if there are any left!), it was not on purpose I swear. It started with a move to a new apartment over the summer and then soon after getting a fabulous trojan from my photo hosting site. After that I just got swamped with...well life. But I'm back and I have half a year of projects to share...maybe I might have to do it photo-bomb style.

So I went through a fiber jewelry art obsession (I'm not sure I'm quite done with it to be honest), did some crochet, made an art doll, and play with some fun fibers and weaving. There's more, oh definitely more, but I thought I'd save them for more descriptive posts that will be coming soon, I promise!!
