Goddess of whimsy

back I really like the jewelery making from beach treasures! This is a bit of shell, I found, carved, then tinted a little goddess figure  in it. The tiny red dot is a home grown ruby crystal! (My daughter’s science experiment a few years back)

I really, really like this one! I plan on making a simple crochet-chain necklace out of my bamboo yarn and put a few stray beads on it. I might have a hard time parting with this one! But part I will! EDITED: I won’t! I can’t! It’s mine! For I AM the goddess of whimsy! (It’s true! Just look me up on Ravelry!)

If anybody is interested in having it, please leave a comment here, or Dm me on facebook! (link in the sidebar! )

I also made some temporary art on the peach itself! :) One for my husband. I call it “rock solid love”.

And one for the people… just a pretty! :)flower

Hey there, I’m back! :)

A while ago, I dropped my laptop to the floor and now it is broken. DH hooked me up with a temporary replacement for now, but the keyboard is coming off it an the D key is having problems (it’s either not typing at all or too many times in a row lol, so forgive me a few errors until I can actually fix or replace my beloved old lappy)

So. I am sure you were wondering what I have been up to. I have been teaching and designing like mad.

I have been hanging out at the shop (since one is loath to call it work, as it is so much FUN)

And I have been made a partner at the shop! WOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.. like how I sneaked that in on you?

Yep! Callie was crazy enough to take me on board! THANK YOU FOR THAT!!!! :)

Honestly, I still can’t quite believe it myself. It’s like a ream come true!

It’s such fun! We are currently working on a class in collaboration with the bead store down the street. If this is receive well, there will be follow ups for that! So the work is starting to pick up.

I am also still reviewing books an knitting of course and I will try to pick up my regular schedule for the blog again soon. (maybe minus a few things and plus a few others)

If you want to keep up with what we are up to, just sign up for the shop newsletter! Email Callie an I am sure she will be happy to put you on the list!

Ok for now I will leave you with a picture of the latest finished shawl:

100% bamboo yarn in lavender! It will go a traveling come next week! WOOT WOOT! :)

Fibre Goddess

I had some time and inspiration yesterday and this is what came of it: (click on the pictures to see them big)

Hand felted using a combo of wet- and needle felting. Various sheep wools, Embroidery floss and beads.

Goddess of all things fibery. It was such fun to make! The inspiration came from clay masks I saw on Chilean mummies and from a game called “From the Dust”.

Ahem… and: She *is* available in the shop! : )

Well there you have it. Happy Memorial day!
