Still haven’t been drawing much, but I had to make a new case since my last 2 were broken beyond repair. For this season we have a pastel, drippy moon with some pearlescent pigment added (which doesn’t show up on camera too well).

It’s getting to that time of year. You know the time when people go mental shopping. I think I can safely say it will be the first year I will not have to work in retail during Christmas. It’s going to be nice, I won’t have to put up with or grin through the dumbest questions and having a person ask me 3-4 times if I’m positive there’s nothing more in the backroom (like it’s really capable of hiding, and if it is there it’s on hold for someone who’s not you).
I’m so pleased to not have to deal with that for once.
Anyway, I posted WIP pics of the cute little plaid cards on my Instagram last night, and got a surprising response. So I decided to share them here as well. These are all 2″ x 2″ cards for the amazing people I worked with for the past 5 years, they’re also getting some homemade hand salve since it’s freaking dry as hell in that damn store.
And in the thumbnail on the right you all get a preview of me practising my handwriting fancy style skills.
When I make cards again next year, I’ll be sure to use watercolour paper, as the cardstock was a bad idea, it buckled like I knew it would, so they’re currently being flattened out under heavy books.
Anyway, I hope to have more stuff posted before 2015 ends. Stay tuned!

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.
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.
