Crafting


This Saturday, Smartwick and I will be at Laura Irwin's book signing at Close Knit from 5:30-7pm.  I'm so excited to get my hands on this book.  The press has been amazing and it has been the number 1 knitting book on Amazon.  Definitely check out her blog, Precious to see lots of amazing pictures of some of the books projects.  I'm still drooling over the gauntlet gloves.  This would be a...

Encaustic Present


Posted on Nov 3, 2008

I can't even remember the last time I blogged.  How horrible is that?  Life has been crazy and things like blogging have been shipped to the back burner.  Hopefully, I will be back in action now. Here is an Encaustic piece I did for my cousin's Birthday.  This picture doesn't do it justice.  It looks much better in real life.  I really like using the song lyrics in pieces.  I drew...

Remember way back in February when I embroidered lavender for my school's scholarship quilt raffle?  Well, the quilt is done and tickets can now be purchased!  Each ticket is $10 dollars and the proceeds go towards student scholarships.  If anyone is interested in buying tickets (hint, hint Moms), let me know and I would be happy to help coordinate this.    Here is my beautiful square.  I'm so...

Filling the kiln

I spent the last week at my good friends' house taking care of their adorable beasts.  Since my kiln lives at their house, I also had the opportunity to get some glass done.  It feels like it's been years since I did any glass.  It was so nice to spend all day Saturday being creative.  I managed to fire 2 kiln loads.  That makes me so happy! You will probably remember these guys since I house sit for...

Encaustic Class – Week 2

Encaustic Class – Week 2


Posted on Jul 28, 2008

For our second Encaustic class, we got to play with color.  I’m really  happy with this top piece.  I think it could use a it more scrapping to get rid of the last bit of blue and green that are bleeding into the background, but all it all I think it turned out well. This second piece is far from done.  I need to do a lot more scrapping.  The red is really hard to get off, but with more elbow grease it...

It’s in the bag!

It’s in the bag!


Posted on Jul 21, 2008

This project is finally done!  I purchased this Queen Bee bag back in February 2006.  I didn't realize then that this would be my favorite bag.  It is a record bag and I had my Jolie Girl record in it forever.  After awhile, I got tired of people commenting on my bag all the time.  Being the shy girl that I am, I never got used to strange people on mass transit having whole conversations about my...
