My brother is getting married!!!

Yay! my brother is getting married and he is gettin hitched to the most awesome, sweetest, most wonderful girl ever!

This is in insert to go in the announcement

 I had the pleasure of designing his wedding announcements... ahh so many choices.. so many options.. esp when Heather at Paisley Studios did such an incredible job with their photos!

These were some of the options that came up with... but the ones they actual choose ... you will just have to wait and see! (they are not on here)


You scream! I scream! ICECREAM!

My new project - I just created these logos for my bosses brother. He just started a company called Gourmet Sorbet. 
 A guy had already drawn the people - I just went into illustrator and used the pen tool to recreate them, figured out my layers and make them more user friendly!

This is the Invite that I made in Adobe Illustrator - I downloaded some of the fonts for free off the internet - looked and different ideas online and this is the result!  I think it turned out pretty TERRIFIC! :)

Pretty Bows

wanna know how to make em... 

You will need fabric, glue and your imagination!

First you start out with a piece of fabric 6 inches long and 4 inches wide. 
I found this to be the perfect size for me - but go a head and experiment with different sizes to find the right one for you :) FYI (have the back side of the material facing you)
Next you want to fold the edges to the middle. Do one side and glue ( I used a glue gun) Than go a head and do the other. 

After you glue both sided to the center - work Left to right and do the same thing again.

You should end up with a rectangle that is 4 inches long an 2 inches wide :) like this!
This is the back of your bow.

Turn your bow around and pinch it in the center - add a few drops of glue to help keep its shape

Cut a strip of fabric about a 1/2 inch to an 1 inch wide and 3-4 inched long (this will be the middle of your bow) remember to have the back of the fabric facing you and repeat step one. 

Wrap the piece of fabric around your bow and glue - you should end up with a bow about 3 inche long and they will look something like this :)

Last step - Glue and hair clip to the back of your bow and you are SET! :)

LOOK how PRETTY! Simply the fastest bow I have ever made.

Flower Bands

My sister and I spend 2 hrs making these gems of headbands. They were the simplest thing ever to make!
WE had a blast using different fabrics and feathers that we had from past craft projects!
ooh what girl doesn't like some SPARKLE!
Some of them we just glued clips to the back - more versatile!
OOOh and here is me modeling the finish project - who knows maybe the sis and I will have our own ETSY store one day! :)

Boyfriend's B-Day Present

another close up of the shack and trees and scribbles - ahh feels nice to be done! now we get to mat it and frame it! SO EXCITED! :)
Mtns and hills close up! amazing how scribbles from afar make a picture!
Up close - looks soo different. My favorite thing to draw was the little broken down house.
WAHOO! I am done.. well can an artist ever really be done? i could work on this thing forever. Good thing the boyfriend won't let me - ahh art oh oh i love but hate you!
Ooh look we are almost there - notice i still need to do the transition from mtns to green hillside - always tough going from light to dark gradually!
Look color - i think i like these pasteles - alot faster then colored pencil! haha except i get the chalky dust over everything including me! such a mess i am! :p - stay tuned for final - almost there! YAY!
Ready or not here i go - good thing they are erasable! :)
I chose to do it in pastels! havent done those since highschool - how hard can it be... right? hahaha
first buying the paper at the local craft store - 2nd i printed off the photo i black and white to get a better idea of lights and darks. 3rd white charcoal pencil is my best friend and helps give me the quick sketch (skeleton) of the photo.

It all started with this Picture - guess the boyfriend really and I mean SUPER LIKES this picture HE took :) He wants it drawn, painted, etc in ALL medians. So guess who is first on his list? ME! He looked at me with these puppy dog eyes and asks for my bday i would LOVE it if you would draw this for me - PLEASE - so of course I had to, even if i haven't drawn for a year or 2.

Fall Wreath

I love Fall- and one day when I was on Craftaholics Anonymous She had the cutest Halloween wreath posted on there that she had just made. Well since i had oodles of burlap left over from the my mothers day project below.. i thought brown burlap would make a perfect fall wreath :) Burlap IS MESSY! and it Itches - I had to shower after this craft making fun - Anyways you start with any size wreath - this is one of the bigger ones. On her blog she painted the foam wreath part black to camouflage it - but I didn't. Too lazy.
You start by cutting strips of Burlap about an inch in diameter and about 8-9 inchs long. I varied my burlap strips for extra dimension and lets face it - i can't cut straight either. :) you than tie a double not around the wreath. Push em all together - keep squeezing - gotta cover that white - squish em again and tie more burlap strips! USE THOSE MUSCLES :)

Now for the fun part - you must decorate your wreath. I went to Hobby Lobby and picked up Fall looking scrap book paper and wooden letters to spell Fall. I than placed my wooden letters on the front of the paper, traced an outline with a pencil, then cut out the letters. In the end this is what it will look like.
I then decided to paint my wooden letters a nice fall orange color to make em look pretty. :)
Oh than I Mod Podge my paper letters on to my wooden letters - Look how pretty they are! :) - almost done. I hot glued the letters on to the wreath - but it just needed something! so I cut out leaves out of cardboard - modge podge some brown orange paper on to them - cut thin strips out of my other fall lookin scrap paper for the veins and .....

This is the end result! :) So fallish! LOVE IT! Since I loved it soo much I gave to my mother - ain't she the luckiest! :) I still have lots of burlap left over - I think I have many more fall wreaths a head of me!
