Clean and Organize

Ohh lookit that pile of stuff.

My newest project sadly is just organizing things. Although I DO have a project in the works that I may finish in-between cleaning and other things! Lots of working and moving heavy crap.

Luckily a lot of this is books, but, there’s also a lot of stuff I have to find accessible places for.

Also, hey, a big stack of my art books! I wonder if any have blank space still…most are full, I know that.

I’m slightly overwhelmed, but hey, it’s a lot more accessible than it used to be.

Any tips on organizing in this space? I’m thinking I’m going to get a small drawer bin for one of the empty nooks I have.

I also have this cool bowl of steel balls…I don’t have a lot of use for it, but I really like it still.


Granny squares Gone Wild

Some people use granny squares for blankets.

Some use granny squares for purses.

I seem to forget “useful” things like that, and I use them to make sleeves…
Granny Sleeve

…which should turn into a giraffe when I’m done.

Yep, BLUE giraffe. …and pink…and orange…he’s an lsd giraffe?

Making Good

Heyy two days in a row, looking better already!

So, here are my doodles I mentioned before:

Except the hat, the hat is a Firefly homage to Jayne Cobb. I made one with more subdued colors for a friend, this one is more true to what is on the show…but I think subtle colors work better, if I were to wear one.

Anyway, back on track, what should I make next?

I’m going to make prints, originals and handmade items available on etsy if I get some feedback here! =)

I’m working ridiculously hard to find a regular job, but, if I could supplement things this way, maybe I could build up a portfolio/following/interest and eventually get a real job in the art field before I give it all up.


Until next time…

Getting back in the saddle

Oh procrastination, you are my lifelong friend…

I keep thinking I’ll blog something, and then I do something else, like making bagels, woo!

Don’t get too excited, they didn’t turn out too well. I am attempting again later today however! Muahaha…bagels you will be golden and lovely, just waiting for the proper schmear.

hehe, anyway…I have decided, that I am going to really put together a proper online portfolio.¬† This Deviantart business is really …well it looks like it’s slapped together, (three guesses why!) so I’m going to work on something new. Maybe even with ordering options! -ooh-ahh- Bear with me folks, I do a LOT of things, and I have no idea how I want to lay it out yet. BUT, if anyone has any ideas or suggestions, please let me know!

I do:

    Puppets¬† (I’ve been branching out to bathtoy puppet/scrub gloves too)
    Drawings (including portraits)
    Jewelry (I’m getting back into funky stuff like magnets and bottlecap necklaces)
    Costume wings (If you want to be a fairy this halloween we should totally talk)
    plus I can make nearly anything paper-related you want, calendars, bookmarks, I can get things printed on mugs, t-shirts whatever you like.

So, that’s my new project, help me stick to it, eh? hehe

Yours truly,
