Holiday Art

Now that Christmas is over, I can post the gifts I made for family and friends. I love nothing more than creating. 

 Shoes I designed and created using a waterproof fine tip pen and Derwent Inktense. Finished them off with a waterproofing treatment. 
 Tote bag I found at Hobby Lobby, used a paint pen to draw the giraffe.
This elephant I drew for a co-worker. She loves elephants.

Once Upon A Time

When you have an imagination that you can't turn off, this is what happens... I honestly can't say that I always believe in happy endings, but I do believe in imagination.  
This is made from a wire plant hanger. It's upside down. Jesse picked it up at store and the chain fell through the bottom. He held it up and I thought, 
hmmm, looks like a chandelier. I gathered all of these fairy tale charms to create a piece that will spark an imaginary story in your mind. Each time you look at it, you can get lost in a new fairy tale..

Be-Leaf It

One afternoon this week when I got home from work, I collected leaves in the rain. It was quite serene actually, it wasn't a cold rain, it smelled like fall and it was...peaceful somehow. I did this because I was inspired by a book shared with me by a couple colleagues, Leaf Man. I had to create. Below are my creations...
Turtle
Duck
Butterfly
Fish

  
Keep creating....until next time..

Mason Jar Masterpiece

Glowing in the summer evening... When I made this solar light jar, it reminded me of catching lightning bugs as a kid. I remember punching holes in the lid of an empty pickle jar to keep them in. I, however, always managed to make the holes too big, out flew my lightning bugs, all over my room!!

Summer.....don't go!!!!

I know...I have been bad...again.  I have been so busy this summer with work and summer projects.  I am sad that the summertime is fading so fast.  I did accomplish a lot of summer projects, I still have some to do.
I did manage to do a little creating.  I made some bracelets!
Here are a few pictures.  I would love to sell them and if you are interested, just let me know.
I would like to know what you think of them, so your feedback is welcome too!

Unfrozen

Well-once again-it has been too long since I have last posted.  I promised myself that I would not do that again.  I think that I have a good excuse this time.  It was a terribly brutal winter-hibernation is not just for animals!   I literally was either at work or under a blanket for months!!
Good news is...it has been warming up.  Last weekend it was 80 degrees!  I finally thawed out!  My spring resolution...I am not going to neglect my blog.  Honest!  

To start the spring posts off....
This is a drawing I did for a very special person.  She loves dragonflies.  Of course, as you may know, my style is not realism.  It is Stephanie-ism.  I really liked the way it turned out.  I think she did too.  She will always be my favorite sister-in-law!!

Dreaming of Summer...and Sun

I have always loved this drawing.  It makes me think of summer.  I would love for it to be summer now!  I am over winter and snow.
I have some new ideas swimming in my head for books and drawings.  I am thinking of maybe organizing an outdoor art and music festival this year.  I have to check on the venue. Be back here soon!  Think Green!
