1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Pet Portraits on: June 01, 2012 02:22:43 PM
I wanted to share some of the paintings I have been doing lately...

I will start with my favorite of the bunch...









They are all oil paints on canvas.
Thanks for looking!
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Cassette Tape Messenger Bag on: January 29, 2011 02:50:57 PM
A few months back I finished this cassette tape embroidery (http://tinyurl.com/6koqqtd) and asked the lovely community of Craftster to help me figure out what to do with it. After MUCH pondering and deliberation I finally settled on making a simple messenger bag.

I used reverse applique to apply the patch so that it sits behind the top layer of fabric on the flap.





And the inside that is bright orange with a slit pocket.


C&C welcome as always!
3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Flying Cherry Plush! on: October 09, 2010 12:44:50 PM
So, a friend of mine is a really great artist, Yosiell Lorenzo of Project Detonate. He paints these wonderful characters that I have always thought would look great in plush. I finally convinced him to get one of the characters printed out at Spoonflower and he let me put them together! I am really excited about it, and hope to work with him more in the future.


Isn't it just the cutest little cherry!?!


4  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Pumpkin Muffins on: September 28, 2010 07:39:04 PM
To roll in the new season I worked up a recipe for some wonderfully moist pumpkin muffins/bread. Mmmmm.

Basically all of the pumpkin bread recipes I have tried since being a vegan have been too dry or borderline pumpkin pie so I decided to try my hand at my own recipe and it came out great!







First things first. You want to preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

Grease your pans. I used 2 large muffin pans but you could use whatever pans your heart desires as long as you change the time necessary for baking.

Dry Ingredients:

3 1/2 cups all purpose flour.

2 1/2 cups granulated sugar.

1 teaspoon baking soda.

1 teaspoon cinnamon.

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg.

1/2 teaspoon allspice.

1/2 teaspoon cloves.

1/2 teaspoon ginger.

1/4 teaspoon salt.

Wet Ingredients:

1 15oz can pumpkin puree.

1 cup vegetable oil.

egg substitute for 4 eggs. (I use Ener-G Foods Egg Replacer)

2/3 cup water.



Combine all of your dry ingredients in a large bowl in the order given.

Next combine all of your wet ingredients in a separate bowl. (If you are using Ener-G Egg Replacer make sure you mix according to the instructions on the box before adding to your wet ingredients.)

Slowly pour your wet ingredients into your dry bowl and mix well. I mixed by hand and this was fine.

Next pour your muffin mix into the pre-greased pans.



Bake until you can insert a toothpick or skewer into the center of the bread and bring it out clean. Approximately 35 minutes for muffins and 45 minutes for 2 95 pans. (please note that these times are based on my personal convection oven and you should monitor your bread closely the first time you make it to ensure success with your personal oven.)

Make sure you let your delicious muffins cool before you pop one in your mouth and burn yourself. ENJOY!



5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / What should I do with this? Cassette Tape Embroidery on: September 08, 2010 01:07:42 PM


I embroidered this up on a whim, basically just because I love old cassette tapes. But now I have no idea what to do with it. It looks kinda boring in a frame or hoop and I don't know if I need another zipper pouch. Help me out please?!

6  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Zombie portraits! on: August 30, 2010 05:44:33 PM
Last year I did a series of zombie portraits of my husband and three of our friends. They are all done in pastels and charcoal on charcoal paper that is about 22x30. This is my favorite of the four, but if you want to see the other three they are all up on my blog. I hope you like it as much as I do!



(The background is all very velvety smooth in appearance, the lighting is just making it look weird.)
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Push Pins and Magnets (IMAGE HEAVY!!!) on: July 28, 2008 07:22:26 PM
I'm not quite sure if this is the right place for these but I think it might be. I finally got to try some fabric (and not fabric too) button push pins and magnets. They aren't anything new or special but I like the way they turned out just the same. All of the ones on paper are push pins and the ones that aren't are magnets. I especially love the wood grain ones. For some reason wood grain stuff always sucks me in.







8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / knit bangles on: July 28, 2008 07:07:52 PM
I was inspired to do these awhile ago when I started seeing them in stores for a lot of money and I know other people have made them too but none the less here are my versions of the knit bangles. The first one is made of cotton with one cable around it and the other is made of acrylic yarn. I made them awhile back but I am just now getting around to posting projects I meant to post weeks ago.


9  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / super mario shoes on: July 28, 2008 06:59:45 PM
I have done these shoes in acrylic paint before, and strangely enough I see that somehow someone actually bumped up that post today to the front page. How weird! Anyhow, this time I did them with permanent fabric ink and I am a lot happier with the way they came out. I finished these awhile ago but I am probably the worst procrastinator when it comes to posting my projects.



10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / 2 rabbits and 1 orange monster on: July 28, 2008 06:43:34 PM
I am still really new to sewing. I don't know anyone that really knows how to sew so I have been slowly trying to teach myself. I am doing much better at sewing by hand than with my machine though. These three are my first stuffed creatures and am am pretty happy with them. Especially the bunny with the green eyes. I thought I would scream trying to teach myself how to do that whole sewing an invisible seam after I turn the thing right side out, but somehow I survived it. I hope you like them.
