New cards - fringed flowers

For the bazaar I made cards, lots of cards - one of my favorite designs were my fringed flowers - so simple but I think they turned out so pretty.


Beeline Bazaar

Last weekend a friend and I shared a booth at the Hutchinson School's Beeline Bazaar here in town. It's been some time since I participated in a craft fair so I was really looking forward to it. I had two months to build up my inventory and I ended up with lots of cards (which are now in my Etsy shop), new bowls, jewelry boxes, keychains, magnets and bee ornaments. Here are some images from my table set up - with each one I do I try something different.


Beach card custom orders

These are a couple beach themed cards I created last year, I've been wanting to post them but have been so so busy. I'm currently working on inventory for a bazaar I will be in at the end of the month and hope to post more soon once I can get caught up.

A coworker asked if I could create a birthday card for his aunt. Like I do for all custom orders, I asked if he could give me some ideas as to what his aunt liked. Based on that I started researching beach themes and found a card that I based my design on - I switched out and added other elements and just loved the way it turned out. Another coworker saw it and really liked it as well and asked if I could change it up a little bit and make it a birth announcement card for friend's of his from Florida that were having a baby girl. I substituted the adult hat and shoes for smaller versions and added a toy ducky. I love it too!


Keychain with Tiny Quilling

About 6 months ago I bought some of the clear fillable key chains, and really wanted to work with them; and of course it took me way too long to get to this project, and let me say; I plan on making more. I think it turned out too cute, and I love working with tiny quilling pieces. 

The keychain is approximately 1 1/2" round.


Sweet Monkey Ornaments

This year is going by so fast and I've been so busy, I wish I could say it was with quilling - I miss it. I was recently asked by a friend if I could create a monkey ornament, she was expecting her first grand baby and their theme was monkey's. I love monkey's, and while I had wanted to make an ornament I needed this request to push me to create one. 

Like all my designs, I sketched out some ideas and came up with these cuties….

These are now available in my Etsy shop for purchase if anyone is interested.


3D Paper Doll in Blue and Yellow

With each new doll I make, I fall more in love with creating them. So now I'm just adding each new one to my collection, I don't think I can sell any of these - they're just too cute. I do plan on adding them as a custom order to my Etsy shop, but that may take another month or so. I'm still trying to figure out hair, that's the hardest part for me so far. And I need to try and make little boy's too, I think they might be a challenge as well.

This little cutie is wearing a blue and yellow polka dot dress and is carrying a matching purse. She fits in perfectly with the others.


Happy Spring!

I joined some wonderful friends yesterday for a 12 hour crop, we had so much fun and I actually worked and finished a couple projects. Here is my third paper doll - holding a blue bird in a nest. She stands about 3" tall, the bird is about a half inch wide - smallest 3D bird I've ever made, and I'll admit, he was a little tricky. I love everything about this little girl - her curly pig tails, her polka dot dress - which is actually tiny paper dots from a very small hole punch that I own. She's so springy in her bright colors, down to her striped socks and aqua shoes.
