365 Days of Creativity – Days 103 to 112

Standard

Hey internet people!  I’m surprised I’m not more behind with my posts – it feels like a month since I’ve blogged.  I’ve been busy, of course!  Paintball season is gearing up, so I’ve got lots of orders to keep my busy.  But, again, that’s work.  I’m posting play here.  The fun, artsy stuff!  I’m still on my mail art kick; who knows, maybe It’ll end up being 365 days of mail art!  I do one or two things here and there that aren’t drawing, but I am still feeling that drawing pull big time.  So, with no further adieu, here’s what I’ve been working on for lots of swaps and trades over at ATCsforAll! I think I’ll hit ya with a bunch of inchies first!  I love making inchies (1″X1″ art).

First, elephants!  Done with marker, gel pen, and colored pencil.

Pink poodles, as a request.  I collect pink poodle ATCs, so it was a treat to draw pink poodles for someone else!  Marker and gel pen.

Another favorite subject of mine, Day of the Dead. Sugar skulls in marker & coloured pencil.

365 Days of Creativity – Days 43 & 44

Standard

We went to the wedding of a couple of good friends of ours this past weekend in Prince Edward Island.  What a great weekend it was, with friends, good food, and lots of fun.  My crafty things for these 2 days were both wedding related, of course.

First off, I made the cake.  The bride wanted it heart shaped, as the wedding was on Valentines Day.  We went with red velvet with cream cheese icing, topped with strawberries.  The cake turned out as planned, with the exception of the strawberry glaze.  I hold the lady at Sobey’s responsible; I had never used it before, but she assured me it wouldn’t run.  She lied.  *shakes fist*  At least it still tasted good. 🙂  Oh, I made chocolate cuppies also, just in case.

I also ended up putting the bouquet together, easy-peasy.  The bride had a dozen red roses, I bunched them , wrapped the stems in the same red ribbon I used for the cake, and added a simple tulle bow at the top.

Awww, such a cute photo!!

The photo for what was supposed to be my last post for this group of days seems to have disappeared off of my ipad.  It was an origami heart out of paper currency that I made for the Mr & Mrs, an idea I got from my sister, and it was so cute.  Booo. 😦
