Hoops & Prints- a new kind of picture frame

So as you all know I have been drawing my fingers off this past month.

I am in the process of making my very 1st collection that I am proud of and I well on my way.

Who needs art school? I have books, the internet and determination!

My goal in 2012? Get better.

I will have prints available  hopefully by next week if not sooner!

In the mean time I have created a new type of a print.

I have taken my illustrations and printed them on a fine piece of cream canvas and fastened them in an embroidery hoop. A little different for your wall decor.

These will be handmade by order.  They can be customized to your liking. So if you would like a different image in your hoop I am more then happy to create something personal for you!

For sale now is “Coriander” Prints and Hoop Prints

I hope you enjoy!

Have a great night everyone.

May 11th… what am I up to?

Posted on

On May 11th 1987 around 2am  my dear sister  Kimberly (or womb mate as I like to call her) and I emerged from our mothers full belly and today we celebrate!

Well, actually I don’t know what she is up to but my celebrating involves putting real butter on my toast without guilt and not doing my hair or makeup…these things please me.

I have been a busy bee working on all sorts of new items for my shops and bulking up old favorites  for the DC Craft Mafia Spring Thing Craft Show! This will be my 1st ever craft show and however nervous I get my excitement will overpower! I have been rocking out some new jewelry with the wonderful help of my talented friend Lauren! I will blog about it when I have finished the whole collection. Also I have been focusing more on my Antler art! Trying to make them smaller, portable, and more affordable! And, as always, Slumber Jack. I have been working on Slumber Jack Jr! Thats right… baby Slumber Jack.

They will all be available in DC on the 21st!

My studio

Slumber Jacks Birth place

Check out all the neat people who have signed up to showcase their talent! I am so excited to be rocking it out next to all sorts of nifty people on Saturday May 21st!

April
