Bleachy tights!

This is something I've been meaning to try for awhile-- finally tried it and I think it looks pretty cool.  I used a bleach pen to draw that hipstery/art nouveau(?) scale print on some leggings.  We'll see how it looks when the bleach washes off!

If I made more of these, do you think they might sell on etsy?

The house free pile giveth, and it taketh away!  But mostly giveth.  I got this awesome bicycle cardigan today, formerly of Ariana.  I don't think I shall ever part ways with it, though.

I'm taking care of business lately-- (I am the new owner of a real live driver's license, for one thing...) and today, I take the GRE!  AUGH!!!!  SAT on steroids!!! Wish me luck!  2 hours and 33 minutes until...

New house, Stacey's Pillows, and Hens!

I have retroactively decided that my blog was (is) on "summer vacation."
I have not had much time for makin' stuff, as I've been moving, preparing for the GRE, working on commissioned doggie portraits, working a lot at the cattery, and going on fun trips!

BUT, I had one free day recently, so Stacey came over with a load of her own personally designed and silkscreened fabric, and stuffing, and I helped her turn them into awesome pillows, (for sale, going fast at the low low price of $40 apiece!) Lookie here!

Beanie baby eyes!!!  AAAH!

Chickens enjoying the backyard of our awesome new house:

So, don't go away, folks!  I'm still pretty busy until the end of September, but I've got a whole backlog of awesome projects I want to create and show off as soon as life settles down again.  The blog shall rise again!
