Mystery Scarves





For years, I have been saving old lace table clothes, vintage doilies, crocheted collars, and anything else like that I thought was cool. I kept telling myself I would do something with them someday. Well, someday has finally come!

Rainy Day Madness


This is what I come up with when I get a day off from work and its raining cats and dogs outside. They aren't finished yet, but I had so much fun making them I need to share...

Effigy Boxes



The dark corners of my imagination (that dream up theses things) are a mystery to even me. I have no idea how or why they come to me, but I love it. I no longer question what I create... I embrace it. I just finished designing these Effigy Boxes.

Dead Faeries


 

 

I've had my Dead Faeries and Coffin Boxes in my Etsy shop for a few months and, since Hallows' Eve is soon upon us, I thought I would share them here. I started out trying to design faeries on string lights and ended up with these. (I am still working on my ideas for the lights) I made the wings from layers of wire, netting, tissue paper, and paint.

Small Sketches


A short post this time... An update to my self-challenge to draw every day: I tried, but even a small drawing made my hand hurt quite a bit. I will keep at it. I have been able to work some on a few mixed media projects, so all is not lost yet.

Here are the sketches I have done with graphite on 5x7” 130 sketchbook paper. I am going to try charcoal drawings and see if that will be a little easier on my RA.
