51  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / A couple of sketches on: August 22, 2012 09:09:11 AM
I am working on a series of paintings, and right now they are just in the sketching phase so here are a couple of sketches:

52  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Space Invader Perler Bead Coasters on: August 20, 2012 01:34:34 PM
Today, I needed to do something productive without to much pressure so I decided to make these fun Space Invader coasters out of Perler Beads.

I am really pleased with how they turned out. The colors are lighter and brighter in real life, but neon colors never photograph well. Thanks for looking!
53  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / My Gardening Saga With Epic Failure and a Surprise Victory on: November 04, 2011 05:59:24 PM
So this summer I decided to get my feet wet in the realm of gardening. My hopes were that I would learn alot about it and then come spring I could hit it with full force. So I planted a few vegetable plants: cucumber, cherry tomato, bell pepper, and fairy tale eggplant. Well I doted on them for weeks and they got off to a great start.

Soon the seedlings turned into thriving plants:

Then I started to see blooms and little baby cucumbers:

After that something terrible happened. All the blooms withered and fell off. The baby cucumbers never developed. The other plants just kept leafing but doing nothing else. Eventually they season passed and we had our first few frosty night. So, we made plans to pull up our plants and try again later. After a week or two of never even glancing at them we went over to them to and found a couple of surprises.

The amazing thing is that this happened on a day when I was feeling like there was no hope and that my whole life has been a failure. It's like the universe gave me a sign that I still have reasons to be hopefull that my life will bear fruit. I am sure it was just a coincidence but I needed that coincidence today.
54  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Tattoo Inspired Sparrow Fall Earrings With Little Nest Balls on: October 20, 2011 05:30:23 PM
Something that always sticks out in my mind is that a lot of times our culture of mass marketing and superstores often skips from Halloween straight to Christmas and they sort of glaze over the rest of fall, but fall is my favorite season so I like to savor it. So whith this in mind and also experimenting with my new sparrow design I made these earrings:

I included these green and brown beads that reminded me of a nest.

They are also pretty big, because I really like earrings that make a statement.

I have been trying my hand at designing my own patterns, and I came up with this little guy! I am so enchanted by little things that ignite the magic in childlike mythologies like the tooth fairy and elves from the north pole. So here is my Owl Plushie Tooth Fairy Pillow.
