Alright. Crafty overload for yous all. First off - here's an update on my OWL progress.
I've gotten two of the zodiac-pokemon done - ratata (the rat) and meowth (the cat), completely. Then there's tepig (the boar) and torchic (the rooster), but they still need detail and colour.
I'm quite happy with them so far. Class/Challenge/House Pride:

Sketchbook CoverBrief Description:
I found a horcux! I always decorate the covers of my sketchbooks/art journals, and this one seems extra special! I always pick a specific word to focus on for each sketchbook. Fittingly - this book's word is 'Seek'. Class/Challenge/House Pride:

A Space for my AncestorBrief Description:
(I hope this isn't against craftster rules - but it's really sweet, full of love, and I felt like sharing with you all) In grade 5 we researched our family history for a project. I discovered that a few generations ago, I had a relative who was very well-known for his creativity. Due to discrimination, he had to flee the country he lived in for Canada, but always felt stifled creatively. I was fascinated and learned as much about his story as I could. Years in the future, I visited a Medical Intuitive, who mentioned this exact ancestor, and how he was involving himself in my creativity. I've felt incredibly connected to him ever since then.
I made this space for him next to my desk. It's made of an old crate turned on it's side, and filled with various objects that resonate with me, and hopefully with him. I really wanted to commemorate him and honour him, and I really hope we can work together. Class/Challenge:

Prayer Flag SetProject Page Link: Click right hereBrief Description:
After the prayer flag swap, I decided I wanted to make a full set of prayer flags (something I've wanted to do for a long time that's eluded and bewildered me for MONTHS now). Each of the flags has something specific I want to invite more of in my life. They started out as a HUGE pile of papers and ephemera I've saved up over the years. I placed the papers and arranged them on canvas backing and then freeform machine stitched to secure them. Feel free to look at the project page - there's much more about them than I could fit on here.
This is what they started out as!!
And this is what they turned in to!
Whew! Alright. I'm done for tonight I think!
