some inspiration..

Today, while poking around on random blogs, i found some drawings by Jonatan Cantero on Boooooom..


So so so super imaginative. It really makes me want to start keeping a sketchbook again! So, I think tomorrow I may go get a fresh one..hmmm. I need to bump up my creativity! So, alas, i'm hitting the sack... to hopefully have some creative dreams.. (such a good source for inspiration..)

a very busy day...

After hours at the doctors office for my boyfriends allergies and asthma and traveling to pittsburgh to get his computer fixed, i'm kind of worn out. Still, when i walked out the door this morning i found some pretty birdie footprints:

(with heart noses... =] )

working up some Valentines Day spirit..

Just posted a cute little notebook on my etsy..

great for making a coupon book for v-day to give to someone special ;)
check it out here.

my first self-made patterns..

       So, I finally recieved all of my super ultra plush felt from jo-anns! I decided I would try to make my own patterns, as I had never done it before! After a few practice-runs, these are the cuddly creatures I came up with:

Oscar the Businessman Bunny, and Six the not-so-Octopus

     These were super fun to create, and they are both for sale in my Etsy Shop! I'm definitely going to be making alot more plushies in the future, especially for Valentine's day! Hopefully, I'll get some good sales!

It's been snowing like crazy lately, so possibly today i'm going to go out with my Nikon and snap some pretty pictures of it.
