Small Update
Monday, June 28, 2010
It's been a while since I posted anything on here.. yet again.

I'm currently expanding my crafting horizons. I will have pictures when I get back to my own computer. Here are some of the things I have been working on.
  1. Jewelry Creation - Mostly pendant and button rings. I'm currently looking for blanks that won't turn the finger green though. I always hated that.
  2. Embroidered Dollies/Pillows - A couple of weeks ago I started a embroidery project and thought it would look nice turned into a little pillow. I broke out the sewing machine and it turned out sooo cute! I'm going to be sewing a couple of couch pillows soon.
  3. Knitting - I have a couple of knitted coffee cozies I am going to be felting when I get home tomorrow. I'm also thinking about embelishing them with embroidery.

Whilst wandering around the Origins Merch Booth, I came upon a crafting table and got an idea for something to try. A woman was airbrushing/painting designs on luggage. I was relatively unimpressed with the quality of the work, but that was just me. However, it did give me the idea to try it myself. I contacted someone via craigslist about vintage luggage for dirt cheap. Keep an eye out for what I come up with.
