Here's another project I did for my work. It was so fun to work with crackle glaze. And it felt great to be crafting again.

I had to make something to keep my brand spanking new iPhone scratch free. Since I love owls and I love green it wasn't a hard design :-)

My wallet broke, so of course I had to make a new one. I had some remnants from my pillow project, and since everything I make right now has to be green (the color, that is - and I don't know why, I'm just a little obsessed with it) this was a perfect fit! I think it turned out pretty great.

Also if you were wondering where my crafting has been the last few months I can tell you I have had a but load of special orders that won't be posted here. I made about 5 or 6 dresses plus 2 tops. As always keeping myself busy.

Oh, and I've been working on a scrapbook, photos to come :-)

I have failed miserably. I promised I would make something and post pictures every day of June. As it turns out - that was HARD. I ended up not having as much time as I thought, I would. I definitely ended up having less energy than I thought I would have. So, here is my sincere apology. If you were expecting something every day, Thank you. Thank you for believing in me. Trusting me to stick to my word. There is something cool about this failure, though. A few weeks ago I was doing my usual stumbling (www.stumbleupon.com - seriously, check it out, you will love it <3 ) and I came across a set of rules. But not just any set of rules, no it was a codified set of the Builder's, Crafter's, Maker's rules.

I know it's kinda tiny, so just in case you can't read the 4th rule, I'll rewrite it here. It states the following:

A failure is simply an experiment. Most efforts will fail. Rarely should the same failure repeat itself.

So there you have it. Failure is okay. This was simply an experiment, and I experienced that having to make something crafty every single day, while trying to keep up with both a full time job and a full time life, is simply impossible. For me at least.

June 15th. Notebook.

I realize this is the first post in three days, here's the thing; I've been working lots and maybe a little uninspired. I am realizing how much of a challenge it is to make something EVERY day. But here is today's project, a notebook. I was inspired by a craft blog I stumbled upon (www.stumbleupon.com) hope you enjoy :)

June 12th. Shoe Makeover

Today's project is a repair/makeover. I had a pair of shoes that lost most of it's goldliness, so I decided to give them a little pick me up makeover. Golden textile paint and glitter medium did the trick.

This picture is before, notice the tip of the shoe - no gold left.

This is the after picture, all new and SHINY! :)

June 11th. Tea storage.

Today I decorated the box I keep my tea in. Also Julie (my roommate) made a lantern, so todays project is a joined effort.
