From my archives

I created this guy last year. I really like him and I might incorporate him into a new project I am working on. He was originally made in an aceo.

Some more hooking and art doll

I finished another art doll, I think she turned out cute. I think I like her being a little "fatter" than my first one.

I finished my hooked pillow over the weekend. Just in time for fall.
Now I'm off to make some colorful hooked hearts.

Art Doll

I made this for my friend, you know who you are. I made it for a trade that I instigated, tee hee! I made two, and I really like how they turned out. Simple and very fun to make.

Another stuffie

My small hooked rug piece

I still need to finish it up by either stuffing it like a pillow, or making a hanging out of it. It measures 12 x 8 inches.

Door to my studio

I really have to do something about this door. It's the door to my studio, it doesn't look like a door to a studio...... it was just painted a barnyard sort of red that I love. I need EMBELLISHMENTS!

It's Possible

I am getting ready for the weekend. It's beautiful here in Seattle. I feel so sorry for the people in Hurricane's way. Prayers go out to my art friends and others in possible harms way.

I have been creating art with rug hooking. I am working on a small halloween piece now. I hope to get some more done on it over the weekend.

Happy Friday!

Journal front and back

Remember the journal cover front I posted a while back?

I completed the back of it today. There is packaging tape over the top of it to give it a nice protective finish, so it may not have photographed as brightly with the tape over it.

"It's not how smart you are, it's about your character that counts".

I will post 3-d photos soon!

Measures 11 x 14 inches, gallery wrapped canvas. This piece has more softer colors than my other pieces. But I like how it turned out! ~ available

Happy Friday!

More pages in my journal

I have been working away in my journal today. Celeste from my art group suggested I make post cards of my journal pages to sell in my shop. I really liked that idea so I have been busy making more pages and journaling. It has been a very therapeutic day, journaling away in my journal. I LOVE days like this when I am in the "zone".

Ok,,,, back to my journal....
