New Studio

I haven't been posting much lately because I was busy setting up a studio space (finally) in the spare bedroom of our apartment. It was stressful to the point that I didn't think it was possible to finish in a few weeks. But look how pretty! I bought all the storage units from Target, like a year ago. That's not an exaggeration! I know have 4 designated areas: my big table for working on projects with all my art supplies within an arm's (or two) reach, a computer corner with my printer set up and all sorts of printing materials soon to be organized, a shipping, and lastly a little makeshift photo studio for taking all my pictures. There is no picture of this area as it's a diaster area right now! There are still more boxes of art supplies to unpack, organize and turn into projects.
I really like coming in here to work and I know someone else is happy that I'm not spreading out all over the living room anymore! In fact my creativity has spiked in the past few weeks. Lots of new ideas and additions to the shop are pouring out of my brain. I don't have the stupid TV to distract me from working anymore. I've been scrolling through my iPod discovering old stuff I forgot I had and finding new little gems thanks to Myke.
Stay tuned for sneak peeks at what's coming up in the shop!

Living Feral

I had a friend in college who was always collecting National Geographic magazines, snipping them up into tiny pieces and making elaborate collages like colorful mosaics. It was some kind of therapy for her. When I came across Living Feral on Etsy, I was suddenly transformed back to her apartment, Katie perched on the floor in a pile of magazine clippings with a feverish look in her eye and glue all over her fingers. I especially like the middle collage here, as it is titled Alice and the Rabbit: the Later Years. Awesome!

Something new....

Cute little strawberries, before the finishing touches of course! I imagine a little yellow slug in an endless row of strawberry plants, picking only the reddest ones and putting them in this cute little basket.

I Like White Weddings

I have been away, but I'm back! I just finished this cute little bride slug for a custom order. She will be a gift for the bride to be at her bridal shower! And in keeping with the marital spirit of an upcoming wedding I will be attending, I put together a lovely white wedding collection of handmade items from Etsy. Enjoy!
