Happy Spring of 2019! Yikes, it has been a year since I last posted about about my creative projects. I constantly have them on the go, though. And when I get around to photographing them and blogging about them, I always enjoy the process. As always, I will try to post more frequently about my… Continue reading Drawing and Painting
Yikes, I forgot to write a blog post about the then-upcoming craft show I participated in this past weekend! Anyway, it was the fourth annual one for the NS Art & Craft Sale, and it was my third time participating. The two organizers do SUCH a great job, and they love doing it!! I’m so glad… Continue reading Craft Shows, Floral Sheets, More Projects
I’ve been busy again with making mittens, a couple of bright wristlets, some pillowcases, and some art notecards. Here we go… I will have fifteen pairs of recycled fluffy wool mittens for sale! I created my own mitten pattern using my knowledge of geometry (that was fun!). I started off using some thick wool, but then… Continue reading Mittens, Wristlets, Pillowcases, Art Notecards!
I found some photos of more creations I’ve made over the past six years! Some were gifts and some were custom orders. Enjoy! (You’ll find other pre-blogging days past creations of mine here, here, and here.) Crocheted hats: Knit scarves: Tissue holders made from silk: Card, dishcloths, bottle holders, and sewing machine cover (this is… Continue reading More Past Creations!

I made each one out of three different fabrics, I embroidered some of the edges, I used French seams on the sides, and I used… Continue reading New Pillowcases and Past Creations
I worked on a few personal creative projects in December, and one of them resulted in being commissioned to do a custom order. I had figured out how to make mittens from shrunken wool sweaters, so I made a pair for myself: I lined them with fabric from a thrifted bathrobe, and I put red suede… Continue reading Wool Mittens and Christmas Cards
I just finished a three-day weekend of my first big (translation: pricier-booth-rental-but-thousands-of-visitors-coming-through) craft show! I was a vendor at the Dalplex Christmas Craft Market. It was a lot of fun having a booth space (8 ft. by 10 ft.) in which to spread out my products. I had a general layout idea in my head,… Continue reading Dalplex Christmas Craft Market – My First Big Craft Show!
Well, I’ve had a busy summer with household and family projects in addition to craft projects, thus the gap in between posts again. However, today I was able to take a bunch of photos, and now I will catch you up on my progress towards the fall craft shows! One project I did was to… Continue reading Craft Area Gets Reorganized; New Items Made
Why yes, this is my second post in one day. This is because I suddenly remembered that I had a few other photos of things I’ve made in past years from vintage cotton floral sheets (or just solid-coloured sheets that I liked). Here you go!
I’m featuring works-in-progress-or-already-done in colours such as pink, green, and turquoise here!! I’ve created a new chevron cotton hat for sale. This is made from cotton yarn and is edged with pink beads. I’m also branching out with my cards! I will be experimenting with various types of art and media (all by hand, no… Continue reading Pink, Green, and Turquoise Works-in-Progress
