All about the “G”

Recently I participated in an gift exchange. My giftee, has a special area of her home called her g spot. The wall has many different Gs. This is what I created specifically for her. I plan on making more for my own home and for my family too.

Coloring Like an Adult

Has everyone been following the recent trend of adult coloring books. One of the most popular is The Enchanted Forest, Johanna Basford. Another popular artist is Dawn Nicole or another artist Selina Fenech.

Its incredibly relaxing for most people. Recently I tried my hand at making a custom coloring page. It’s like typography meets zen tangles. I really liked how it turned out. I am currently working on 3 more.

Houdini explained, Hello 2014

Hello everyone its been a while I know. This last year, 2013, was an emotional roller coaster ride of really good and really bad.

We welcomed our new baby girl, Imogen. It has been quite the ride with a newborn. Trying to learn her schedule, she is so different from our first.

Sadly though we had to say good bye to a very dear friend, of whom I went to college with, Jaime Peterman. My heart has been thoroughly shattered. My friend taught me how to sew. We took on making our own fairy coats, one of my first projects. Being inspired by Katwise and Enlightened Platypus, very beautiful coats from recycled sweaters. Ours were done with Goodwill sweaters/coats and fleece. I should clarify that we did not follow any pattern and came up with our coats on our own. Jaime was an amazing color wizard. She had the most colorful sparkling spirit and I miss her so much.

Being in an emotional funk I took a break from creating and focused on being healthy, taking care of myself and my family. It was hard to want to create when I was just sad or overwhelmed with emotion. Luckily this pregnancy went so much better than the first. No high blood pressure and no pre-eclampsia, and she wasn’t full breech either. My swelling was normal not to the extreme either.

I hope that 2014 holds many wonderful surprises for me and my family.
