Wanted to share a few picture of my wool felt booties that are available in my shop and to let you guys know that the Art and Craft show and sell was a huge success. The artist were able to sell some of there hand crafted items and we were able to make a nice donation to the schools art department. This is the second year of the parent's getting together and supporting the school along with selling our crafts. A big thank you to Ellen and Wallace for getting this event together for the second year.
Hey guys just wanted to share what I've been working on for the past few days. Each gift tag is tea stained to give them a vintage look. These tags are all original hand drawn and I will be selling them as a set. I'm preparing for Art and Craft sell for Kara's school where each artist will donate a portion of there sells to the schools art department. Have a wonderful rest of the week.
Just finished up a pair of wool felt booties. I think they really turned out cute. The wool felt is so much nicer than the acrylic felt. I'm going to have to purchase some more this weekend. Preparing for a Art and craft sale for December were we will be donating a percentage to Kara school to benefit the art program there which will be wonderful for the students. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. I will be creating art and crafting this weekend.
Hello everyone I just had to share my latest project. I designed these felt booties over the weekend. Found a free pattern on the web and just added my own design, I think they turned out pretty good for a first try. All seams were hand stitched. I can not wait to purchase some wool felt and really come up with some cute designes. I think I've found a new passion along with drawing sewing. Have a wonderful rest of the week.
Last weekend me and my sister went to Atlanta for the Country Living Fair and had a wonderful time we left on Friday and returned home Sunday night. The fair was held at Stone Mountain Park and the weather was perfect. That was our first road trip without the spouses, thank God for GPS's. Had the pleasure of meeting a number of creative women selling in the fair. Here is a few pictures from the Country Living Fair.
Wanted to share a shot of some new tags I've been working on along with the bookmarkers. Today I worked on restocking my booth at the Antique Mall. I've started to sell somethings which I am very excited about. My booth had really gotten light.
Hello guys sorry I have not posted in a while but I have been creating art and getting Kyla ready to move on campus. She is officially all moved in. I have a number of new creations to show you guys.

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, wanted to share with you the notecards that I designed for a little girl by the name of Zion. This card was created using prismacolor pencils and markers. Card was then printed on 110 lb cardstock paper. The card measure 4x5 1/2 and comes with matching envelope and will be sold eight to a package.
I had a customer request me to design a special card for one of her sorority sisters 40th Birthday. The customer would be going to New York to visit her and celebrate with three of there friends.
The customer wanted the card to be a girl with shopping bags and something that represent New York in the back ground along with the birthday girls name. My daughter Brittney is a student at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in Atlanta majoring in Fashion Design so I gave her the job.
SCAD is a very expensive school and I've been talking to Brittney about doing fashion cards and portraits to make extra money to help out with purchasing her art supplies and books. Well this is the design she came up with and the customer loved in. The card is 5x7 and printed on 110 lb cardstock paper.

Worked on drawing a few bookmarkers today and wanted to share how they turned out. I'm debating on whether to add ribbon, what do you think ribbon or not? The bookmarker with the girl with the purse and earrings is for an expecting first time mom who will be reading all she can about what to expect when your expecting. I think I will add wording to the book markers. Also worked on a few more 3x3 drawings that I will frame for my shop that will be available soon.
Just wanted to share a special project I was happy to do for Kara's kindergarten teacher. I volunteer for a few hours on Wednesday so she knows that I love creating art. She gives each child a 4x6 photo album of there journey in kindergarten at the end of the school year with picture of them on field trips working on project and so fourth. This is what I decided would be really cute. I drew each child from the back carrying the little blue tote that all kindergarten carry there work in. Here's a peek at how a few turned out. Needless to say Kara teacher loved them.

I'm working on creating some miniature 3x3 pieces of framed art. This was suggested to me by a women I meet at the April Art Party, which really caught my attention because I like working on a smaller scale when drawing and I also like to be detail in my drawings.
The women also told me about a miniature society where all the work is 3x3 and smaller, she told me to google it to learn more about this group of artist. I wanted to share the first 3x3 that I will be framing in a white frame. Let me know what you think.
