Wow, that is amazing!  I love it!

I love Hyperbole and a Half, and that is really well done!  I can't seem to get the hang of embroidery, and your stitches are perfect!

Wow, that is just AMAZING!

dulcet - ooooh, all good ideas!  I definitely need to make more, now - maybe I can make a bunch of notecards (credit where it's due, that was alwaysinmyroom's suggestion from the craftalong post!)

Ratfinkz - good ideas - I'm thinking hearts and Valentine's cards, and if I ever get up the energy, I could totally do a tree with swirly shading (a friend of mine did a panda like that and oh my goodness it was amazing!)

bushbaby, jexxican - if you want to stitch one up, feel free!  I don't have the talent for embroidery, only cross-stitch, and that's rather counter to the form of the flowiness!

And thanks everyone, for your kind words!  I love posting here, everyone is so nice and supportive!  Cheesy

Awww, thank you so much!  It's an easy art style, very fluid and relaxing... at least the pencil sketching is!  The inking is a little more meticulous, but I find it very zen and soothing.  And mostly these are just Sharpie on sketch paper, though a few are with the better Micron pens.  Cheesy

BriannaB03 - Nice HP mug Rug (and go Team Textbook!)

Gozer - that artwork is STUNNING.  I know everyone is most critical of their own work, but... I've never seen flaws in your work!  Just beautiful!

Coulsenl - baked goods, how I love baked goods!  I have an enormous stack of recipes I still need to try, but that cookie recipe looks so easy... 

- I like the hoop idea for MegaSnowflake, too!  I have books and books of snwflake patterns, I'd never thought of doing them big... hmmmm....  And I feel you on the lost (well, temporaroly misplaced) Golden Snitch bits.  I have purple buttons I bought for a project around here somewhere...  Still, I think it turned out pretty nice for last-minute fill-ins!

Calabaza - Huckweaving, eh?  Hmmmm, another craft I've never tried that I might just have to one of these days - it looks so cool!  Of course, everything looks cool when you Tardis is, but... Cheesy  I adore the Dr Who macaroon coin purse!  I think I tried to make one of those once and failed?  Or couldn't find the bits.  But I really want to give it a go, now!

LovelyMiss - I'd say that yes, taste is what matters but that bread looks pretty picturesque to me!

BadWolf314 - I need some vinyl wall thingees for my kitchen!  Are they hard to do?  I was thinking along the lines of "Abandon hope, all ye who enter here".  Not because my cooking is bad... rather the opposite!  Everyone around me curses me because they all gain weight when they hang out with me... :/

Oh goodness, so many projects!  I swore I'd keep up with them this year, then started the year with a horrible cold, and just couldn't muster the energy to even sit at the computer.  I did finally get one WIP done!  It was a sketch I'd started... two years ago?  During my swirly art phase.

#1 - Swirly Bird Art (WIP)

I'm still not sure about the one swirl under the purple bit on the chest... part of me wants to color it in entirely, the other part says to leave it...  I just don't know!

More of my "swirly art period" can be found at this post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=430601.0#axzz2pZmGxl8Z

I finished up a drawing I'd been working on for awhile (took time off my swirly doodles to try to focus on Lifebook, that hasn't been going well) and realized I'd never posted any of them here, so... sorry for the glut of pictures, but here they are...

This one is probably my favorite, and inspired by a stamp I saw at a craft store...

This is the first one I did, I still have the original, uncolored version, but I rather like the vivid colors...

Here's another one that I first drew, then....

colored in.


Another bird...

This was a fish (yea, I know, his fins should be longer and his tail shorter, I started work on another one... somewhere... I should find that one!) that had no black lines, just color.  Still not sure if I like that option.

Quick and easy jellyfish


Sorry for the kinda crummy photo on this one, my fist time adding colored markers.

And the latest, with several different colors of markers and different scale swirls (the main large ones, then the "shading" swirls in the branches).  I"m still not sure about the one swirl under the purple bit on the chest... part of me wants to color it in entirely, the other part says to leave it...  I just don't know!

I've rather fallen off doing many of these, kind of because I've not been inspired with what else to do.  Sure, more birds and butterflies, but...  (I tried a few other things that when horribly, laughably wrong - I'm not much of an artist, so simple shapes are important!).

This is awesome. The current feels-like temperature of me in Florida is only 1 degree warmer than the feels-like temp of my partner in Alaska. HA!


LOL Of course tomorrow it's going to be 72 or something here so it's a short-lived bit of winter.

That is depressing, that the feels-like temperature is over 40 degrees *warmer* in Alaska than it is in Kansas... but that's okay, in true Midwest fashion the temperature is in for a major change tomorrow - it's supposed to have a wind chill of -30!  I'm not ready for that...

Ripped out everything I did today on my Research Project.   Angry  I think I need to take a little break from it and do something small and relatively quick.

Oh no!  But better to cut your losses now if you're not going to be happy with it, and chalk it up to a learning experience.  Yes, cleanse your crafting palate with a quick and easy project (or two) and then your interest might rekindle!
