Flowers, and Leaves and Wreaths, Oh My!

By | 0 Comments

When you get sucked into the handlettering community, you naturally get pulled towards what’s cool and popular in graphic design.  Watercolor, wreaths, banners – it’s all big, and it’s all on Skillshare.  As I mentioned before, at 99 cents for three months, you can’t go wrong, and I’ve particularly enjoyed the following group of classes from The Pigeon Letters. First,…

Back to School-ish

By | 0 Comments

Ah, it’s that time of year again – when my Facebook feed is flooded with back to school photos, in a parade of endless backpacks and tight ponytails. Aside from the shock I felt when my one crafty Karate Kid niece appeared as a GASP cheerleader in my lead story, it’s all the same old same old. And, while I’m…

Thread Art Project Done!

By | 0 Comments

And, she’s done! I thought there was a gigantic possibility that I was going to mess it all up once I tried to color her in, but I think it went ok. So, what to do with her. I could cut her out, bind her, and hang her on the wall. Or, I could make her part of a tote…

Craftsy on Steroids – Binge or Bust

By | 0 Comments

In the beginning of October, Craftsy ran a $10/all you can watch for the month of October promotion.  I didn’t get an email about it, and I didn’t see an ad for it, but someone posted about it in the Crafty Gemini Facebook group, and I ran, tripping to jump on that Craftsy train.  I’m thinking that it wasn’t very highly publicized…

Frida Fail

By | 0 Comments

Ok, so I know that the real Frida Kahlo did have a bit of a shadow, perhaps a bit of mustache, however, on my little Frida, it looks more like an ingrown hair problem.  As I predicted, the muslin I used was too thin for this project, and you can see the backside stitching pretty clearly through the front of the…

Right Now

By | 0 Comments

Right now, it’s really cold.  Like -5 cold.  Like it’s snowing again, on top of the 12 inches we already got, and it’s worthless because it’s not going to lead to a snow day, cold. It’s only leading to more cold. Ok, you get it, it’s cold. So, of course, cold=wool=knitting, and my Follow Your Arrow KAL has lead to…

29 Faces – Face 21

By | 0 Comments

Well, it’s the 29th day of March, and I’m only at Face 21.  Doesn’t look like I’m going to make it – oh well.  Face 21 took me what seemed like hours – there are so many layers of paint on this face, and I have no idea where they went, she still looks pretty flat to me.  I’ll get…

29 Faces – 16 & 17

By | 1 Comment

Not quite caught up, but I’m working on it! The office closed early – yeah! – due to a busted air conditioner – boo! Rumor has it that it’s going to take between 4-6 weeks to get the thing up and running again – double boo! Triple ugh! I’m actually glad I’m going to the prison Tuesday. Anyway, Lemon and…

29 Faces – Face 14

By | 0 Comments

I told you I was going there – Paper Clay!   Is it just me, or does that actually look like a face? Honestly, I’ve never sculpted anything in my life. Well, I think there was some kind of papier mache puppet in 6th grade. But, I think this is the first thing that counts. I’m pretty pleased with myself.…
