I moved to TypePad.  Just click the pic above to go there.  It will eventually turn into my main website, *turtlekisses*, as well.

Big Red Fella [Mar. 13th, 2007|11:24 pm]

Stayed up late trying to re-make one of my past bunny rabbits.  It was a lot harder to do than what I thought it would be!  Plus, I ran out of yarn.  Whoops!  He didn't turn out exactly as I had hoped...his ears are too short & his belly is too big.  That means he's for sale...

in my etsy shop, of course!

another stamp... [Mar. 9th, 2007|08:36 pm]
[Tags|, ]


made another stamp from one of my drawings.  she started as just a scribble.  i was trying to get my pen to work (you know how you make a little scribble until the ink starts to flow again) when i looked back at it & saw a little head.  i couldn't resist making her into a stamp :]

This is Luc.  He is Chum #2.  I have decided to try selling him.  I haven't put anything up for sale in quite awhile, so we'll see.  He is in my Etsy shop.  It seems as though that is indeed the place to be.  Tomorrow I hope to be snowed in, so I can make more stuff :]

another cat & a chum [Feb. 24th, 2007|08:36 pm]

inappropriate, but very funny.  i've been making these from magazine ads & article headlines for a friend.  i hope next month's magazines bring me another goofy cat!

 
and a little chum.  he's about 2.5 inches tall.  i doodled him after making one of my twirp drawings.  i like him :]

twirps come to life [Feb. 23rd, 2007|08:12 pm]
[Tags|, , , ]

 
i finally made my tiny twirp drawings come to life.  i started drawing these little gals quite awhile back (you can see them in previous posts).  then i started making little collages with them in the form of artist trading cards.  i even started carving them into stamps (i'll have to post those another day).  now i've turned them into little crocheted beings :]
 

here is the packaging i made to go along with her.  it's a little origami tato.  it's flat, but opens up to a box.  and the little tag is my new trademark stamp.  he's a little guy i created with the help of my family.  he's hair is in the shape of an "m" which is the start of our last name.  he's our little family guy.

and the name of these gals changed a few times...peeps...chums...twirps.  twirps was a word a created from parts of two words i randomly stuck my finger on from one of my husband's books.  eh, it works!

it's time. [Oct. 5th, 2006|09:42 am]
cut & pasted from a comment i left in misshawklet 's journal:

i think i have made the decision to stop. i work all the time at a "normal" job & when i'm not working, i'm on here. i'm looking at everyone's wonderful projects, drawing them, buying them, sometimes trading w/ them. but you know what? I'M NOT DOING ANYTHING! i bought a few inspirational books, new journals, & now it's time! i'm going to explore again...but this time i'm going to do it in the "real" world.

do not worry, if you are indeed still here, i will be back.

my youngest draws a lot! [Sep. 25th, 2006|11:38 am]

these are all drawings by my youngest daughter.  she is 3 years old.  the first pictures is actually a collaboration between her & i.  she drew the boxes, i drew the faces, & she drew the arms (which is on straight line across!).  she used to make circle people.  they have now transformed into these scribble people which i love!  after awhile she quits adding the arms & legs.  she also makes the square people.  i think her inspiration for those actually comes from spongebob squarepants.  either way, they're super cute!
