Did you miss me? 😉

I missed you 🙂

Forgive me internet, for I have been absent. It’s been…well…WAY too long since my last post. It’s not that I haven’t been doing anything, it’s more that I’ve been doing other things (I place A LOT of the blame on a little game called Dice Masters.) But I’ve been sharing them other places for now–like on Instagram. I had NO IDEA I would like Instagram. I hate having my picture taken so, generally in return, I’m not a picture taker. But then I started doing Kathy Racoosin’s 30 Day Coloring challenges at The Daily Marker, and uploading a daily little snapshot was the way to go. I also wanted to try a few new made-by-me challenges and those were also easier to do there because I could take a quick pic at a crop or something and post it with minimal editing and narrative.

However, I signed up to be in a small local craft fair with my mom which means “HOLY COW it’s been HOW LONG since I wrote a blog post ohmygod ohmygod ohmygod ohmygod ohmygod.” Yeah. And I want people that like what I make to be able to come and find an active online me. Someone at least as active as the real life me. And I need to focus and simplify so maybe this will help.


Here’s some pictures of pretty things I’m selling this weekend.

I made some sweet wood ornaments (or just cute decorations).

Meet Chester!

I don’t decorate much around the house. Since we don’t often have people over for the holidays, we don’t have kids, and we aren’t religious, then the whole decorating a bunch for Christmas is a little time consuming and we aren’t home much to enjoy it. BUT these adorable little canvases will work anywhere!

When starting to think about what I wanted to make for the show, I started making these little pendant rings..and then apparently I couldn’t stop. I’ve made A LOT of these. So please, if you’re in the area, come and buy one so that I can justify making more. That would really work well for me 🙂

Circle Beaded Handmade Pendants

There are SO many more where these came from.

So now I’m off to price and tag a few more things. I hope 3 things for the future:

  1. Be on here more consistently.
  2. Work on my follow through with planning and challenges.
  3. Focus on the things that I enjoy.

I think by working on all of these, they will naturally feed off each other in a wonderful creative cycle. See you soon!

Hi Everyone!

I love peeking at everyone’s workspaces on What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday hosted by Stamping Ground. Go take a look (but come on back). It’s so much fun!

I had hoped that more jewelry would be making it’s way onto the table, but right now, that doesn’t seem to be the case (although, maybe there’s some under there somewhere). I have been “saving” some blank canvases hoping to someday do Something with them, but that perfect thing isn’t coming and basically I’m just storing them at this point. So I decided to pull one out, throw some distress paint, embossing paste, and color through stencils on it and see what happens. Obviously, it’s not finished, and the doily and bird aren’t attached, but I thought it would be fun to just add stuff to it here and there. We’ll see. Maybe it will be nothing, but for now, it’s a start (which is more than it was before)!
