A gift from a friend, three panels of wall art ... That were hideous. So I fixed that. Still in the process with this one, but it's so close to completion and I am so excited about it, I have to share it.
I'm back. I had to start my life over from scratch in May and I am still not done with this ordeal. But I'm back to being crafty, have my own place, my own space and no more negative person to keep me down.
Happy New year, happy new life.
This artwork is very symbolic of my story. The rugged ripped out from under me, falling down the rabbit hole and trying to wake up from the nightmare.
A lot of the art is cut from old storybooks. I drew the brick fireplace and did the lettering. I found a tiny key on a charm bracelet that's perfect for the table. And my dear friend made me the "eat me" and "drink me" embroidery that I framed to go with the rest of my Alice in Wonderland art wall.
Made a new friend. Hit it off so amazingly well. When she had a hysterectomy a few months later, I took it as an opportunity to show off my weird crafty side. We all have that, right? Anyway, here's the cutest little uterus you ever did see.
And to top it off, I made it into a pouch, KAM Snap at the bottom opens to reveal a lovely red satin lining. And when I gave it to her, it was stuffed with shreds of red satin for one last period. Omg, I've just been dying laughing about this.
I'm making some cute kid's clothes from my vintage fabric stash. I had a rainbow brite sheet I dug out and made a few dresses with. And added ruffles to denim looking leggings, it pairs super cute. Hope you guys enjoy!
A friend had an idea and I went with it, decided to invest in making a prototype. I used a lightweight ACU fabric with a solid foliage green water resistant fabric for the bottom and sides. Its full of pockets and the same design as all the 80s bags I've been making. I used gun metal D-rings because that's what I had on hand, any other bags this style will have black plastic D-rings. I used a plastic tri-glide to make the adjustable strap. I also put strips of velcro on the front of the bag for badges. I've got a few more styles I'm going to test out soon.
Been saving character bed sheets for quite a while now, finally putting some to good use. Today's special is Care Bears and Rainbow Brite with a Murky and Lurky patch on the front. I also got my new custom tags in from tagtopia on etsy, I'm really pleased with how they turned out.
I used cover buttons to make these and I'm so happy with the way they turned out. They are hand drawn and colored. I put them on hair clips, bows, headbands, and pony tail holders. I use rhinestones for the eyes.
