Sewing

Unrelated to what I normally post. However, this is the best hidden zipper I’ve ever sewn. This is a pencil skirt that has been laying around waiting to be sewn together for about 6 months now. I must say the finished piece is not too shabby.

Please ignore the stray bits of cat hair, Eevee thought it necessary to add her fur to this.

Inspired Corkboard

I saw the movie The Book of Life in theatres on November 2nd, 2014, and it became an instant love.
(So much so I downloaded the sugar smash game version of it onto my phone).

It was such a great movie, with an amazing soundtrack (which I bought and also have on my phone, and listen to daily), and all the little skulls, stars and hearts everywhere were awesome! Needless to say, as I was cleaning out my room I found an old corkboard/dry-erase board that I’d never used (probably because it was ugly). So after I red-did my room, I painted the corkboard.

I think it’s much prettier now, and I’m more likely to use it, which is good because I need it to help me stay organised.
I kind of want to make this as a fabric print now. I want to make a circle skirt out of this. Anyway, I might give it a light dusting of a glitter clear coat, because, why not. I’m already using it so it’s serving it’s purpose after probably 10 years of not being touched. Now all I need are star, and heart shaped push pins.

Done using acrylic craft paints in gold, white, red and black, all of this was hand painted, no stencils or stamps.

Earrings!

My last post was on September 17th. I need to get back into posting more frequently, although that’s
hard to do when your life becomes unexpectedly busy.

There have been a few birthdays this past little while, and I’ve been hesitant to post photos of my crafty projects (ones I plan to start selling), but here are a couple. I want to apologize in advance for the poor photo quality, these were taken with my phone and while I was in a rush.

Enemies Mug

This is from February, I would’ve posted it much earlier but I forgot.

Sometimes I get crafty and paint on mugs. Only sometimes, and only for super special friends.
This baby was a birthday gift for a close friend of mine who bought my friendship with sushi, and her being crazy trustworthy.

She had had a really rough year, so “Blood of my Enemies” seemed like it would work for her birthday.

It took me about 50 times to get the writing nice looking in my sketchbook.

Moleskine 1

I don’t know about you, but I like to decorate my sketchbooks. Especially since I can never find ones with nice designs on them.

I recently purchased a few moleskines, the 120 page cahier in Extra Large, I bought the packs of 3 in black, and in a brown manila colour. So in total, I have 6. This is just one of the ones I decorated. Simple silver antlers. It’s so pretty, almost like it has foil on it in person. If you’d like a print for sale of this comment below, and I’ll take a better photo so I can add it to my Society6 shop.
