MIA ;) but here is what I've been doing :P

So, yes yes, I went missing, but we have had the sickies, the ickies and the blahs.  

And a Costume party, I made Olivia's little dress, need to get better shots of the details because I was quite pleased with how it turned out, the details you can't see in this picture are worth me getting a better shot haha.  We even covered her shoes to match the dress!  She was a 60's mod girl.

We also made her some hideously 60's clip on earrings and a ring to match ;)


I'm still working on the painting..getting ready to shift into a more dedicated studio space (read: my own room :P) and so I think I'll be able to get much more done in the way of sewing/design/paint/drawing/etc.etc.etc. :P

Here's what I've got so far :)

Plenty left to go, and I think I'm going to paint out the red/pink 'leaves' as they are looking more like cherry blossoms then I had wanted.  We shall see!

I also updated the shop with a new banner/logo design, but alas, it still stands empty ;)

Hope everyone is toasty warm on this snowy day.

...a start

So, I posted a work in progress a few days ago, which I *will* get back to at some point ;) but  a new artist has inspired me, and I really couldn't wait to create something that would reflect that inspiration.  So, here is the beginning of something fantastic (I HOPE! hahaha). 

Here is a link to my new favorite artist, Lawrence Yang. Enjoy.

...a work in progress

So, I started this painting for the living room, but I'm quite sure it's going to be a little more 'juvenile' and whimsical than I anticipated.  I had something more 'somber' in mind, but the colors are just turning out bright and cheery, maybe it's my subconscious ;)

Most of you that know me have seen my photography, so I'm not going to go through the process of loading it up here ;)

However, here are the latest few projects that I've had going on. 

I did a photoshoot for an AMAZING Chef who made AMAZING cookies and needed some photos for his site and catalog. Once it's live, I'll immediately add the link...until then, here are a few of my favorites from that shoot.


Also, I had the PLEASURE of babysitting for a friend a few weeks ago, and she has the most beautiful baby girl...I'm sure you'll agree ;)  Her cuteness was just too much to resist so I snapped a few candid shots...

Those dimples are toooooo much.

In the way of 'art', I have a few paintings in mind, one in the works.  I need to make a formal dress that I'm him-hawing about since I'm just not sure how to go about it...more on that later.

Nothing in the shop right now, but I'm planning on adding some hair accessories and maybe a few scarfs soon.

Thanks for your continued support, some of you I have known for years, and it truly means the world to me :D

...and so it begins.

Over the years I have had a few different shops online, a few different journals, and found myself not loving any of it.

Things have changed so I have decided to park myself in one to speak.  While I will still sell on etsy, on a limited basis...most of you will find everything I do in way of a creative outlet right here on this site.

You'll see my art, my photography, my design, my sewing and creating.

Thanks for stopping in!
