my cards from September October. My best one is missing from here as I sent it out this afternoon without scanning it. DUH! But I hope to get a scan from the girl I sent it to. The pink on the cheeks isn't as garrish in person as it looks in the scan. My computer really skews pinks and purples. I love the way her hair turned out though. It's so not my typical hair. I stink at doing hair to make it look realistic.
Mother Earth cards I was working on today. I was sorting my cards for a swap and it sparked more ideas. So I sat down with my sharpies for the first time in almost three months. It was nice for a change. It's been so long and I was missing them something fierce. The Kuan Yin Gaia isn't done yet, still a work in progress. I think I'm going to try to translate some of these into paint at some point. I mailed off one of my older mother earth pieces, so I hope to get a scan of that from the person I sent it to. It was my favorite.

My little crochet birds. Only about two inches long and two and a half high. So cute and small. I don't like the beak though. I think I'm going to do a felt beak on the other bird. I think I like the crocheted feet though.

Well ok, technically it wasn't NEW, it was just a new take on things I've been doing. I took the crochet flower I do and put a little spin to it. I found a giant spool of curling ribbon floating around here and wondered what the heck I was thinking when I bought a roll with so much yardage. Then it hit me, why not try making a flower from the ribbon! Eureka, it turned out really cool! Check it out. I listed it on etsy, but I doubt anyone will take it, but it was a fun try.
I've made more flower pins for ETSY. I also had some spare crocheted flowers floating around so I thought I'd offer them up as a pay it forward on ETSY. It'll be my second one offered. I'm going to do more, but i want to figure out what else would be nice to do. So here are some images of my new flower pins and the extra flowers. These floral pins aren't felted and are made from acrylic yarn. Just bits of things I had laying about. I love to do these because they don't take me hours upon end and I can move on to something new faster than other projects. My little mind doesn't like to dwell on things for very long. They're things I can do while watching TV.
