AHHH i feel much better now!

I've been wanting to paint for AGES! Today, feeling particularly low after having to give up Ceasar (see I decided I wasn't going to do much of anything. I had thought about taking a nap, but ended up spending time catchin up with some long lost pals! While I was chatting with them I decided to get out my paints and paint a picture. I didn't have any idea what, or if I was even going to finish, but I DID! YAY! Check it out!

Flower Fairies Flitting By

Here is a Flower Fairy I posted to my etsy shop. I've been making these for awhile. My sisters and I made flower fairies for favors for my Brother's wedding last July. They were a SMASHING hit. They're so cut and adorable, I decided to make them into pins to make them wearable! This is a current one I have for sale. There are more to come, I just haven't had time to photograph them and get them listed.

These are some of the ones we made for my brother's wedding favors. My sister then decided to make little babies when my other sister had a baby shower. She made the cutest little babies for the fairies to hold in their arms. They were so cute they had little hats on their little heads. I'll have to search around and see if I have any pictures of them around. These are a few images of the little fairys we made in July.

More art/crafts on sale.

Hi all! I've been felting again! I created a few more of the pink pin in different variations. I really like this one with the black beading in the middle. It really lends a nice touch and highlights the middle well. It's up for sale in my etsy shop . It's made from a wool/soy blended yarn from Paton's. I really like the color way. It's really pretty. Nice dusty roses to a pinky pink and then to a pinkish beige. Very pretty.

I then felted this stunning blue number. I called it Vintage Serenity Blues since I used a vintage reproduction button in the center. I left this one minimal as I thought the lovely blue and the button was enough to make it sing. I've got more in the works, but I'm missing my bead box at the moment so I won't be able to list more until I find it. You can count on seeing some more vintage repro buttons and more beading. I'm doing some with leaves and without and might come up with some more interesting ideas to do with them. Here's the blue

Here is a keychain I made as well to sell on etsy. It's got this cute little blue bird image on the front and a lovely heart on the back. It's really easy to pop the back piece off and add a picture of your own if you should choose. The art is all original, one of a kind. I didn't do editions or prints of it.
