Thanks everyone for the kind words  Smiley

I love fabric baskets! They're so good for storing stuff.

And of course one good turn deserves another: I received an awesome hoop from kittykill today when I got home from work. I love everything about it! First of all, where on earth did you get that woodgrain fabric because I need some...like now. And the fabric she chose for the upper part of the hoop is so perfect, it reminds me of my childhood wall paper sort of....kind of a similar color story. And the lace trim that marries the two fabrics, and the awkward girl in the middle so reminiscent of myself in most social situations when I don't know a lot of the people. I love it so much!

Thank you so much kittykill!!

Yes, another bag. A complete surprise, I know, right? But a new theme!! I had so much fun making this Mario themed bag for Mama24boyz and it is always so refreshing to tackle a new theme. I even went as far as to screen print my own original fabric to use for the lining. Shall we move onto pictures? Let's-a-go!

I've been screen printing for the better part of three years since I learned how to in school, and have developed a bit of an obsession. Unfortunately I've been a bit limited since I work out of my apartment and have been very nervous to try liquid photo emulsion because I don't have a dark room or a perfect light set-up. But after biting the proverbial bullet and giving it a try, success! To act as my dark room.......a sealed box  Cheesy As long as I don't open it until I'm ready to expose the screen, it really really works. Anyway, here's a bunch of pictures of my latest printing adventures as a result of photo emulsion!!

Hi! I'm Emma, living in Michigan USA right now. I've gotten my BFA in art, and now am biding my time working til I figure out my next move. I love weird, random things, inappropriate humor, and beautiful art. My favorite colors right now are teal, bright red, mossy green, deep blues, and blue-green. I love all colors except neons and pastels. Right now I've been super loving geometric art especially crystal forms and chevrons, topography,  I have no allergies, so no worries there. My pinterest and profile should give you a good idea of my style and preferences, but I'm super friendly so please feel free to ask me anything. Big wishes are IN BOLD Examples of a lot of the items listed below can be found on my pinterest.
