been awhile....exciting developments :o)

So I took a chance on a posting I saw on Spoonflower's FB page and emailed someone about designing fabric for a children's clothing line. I got the gig!!! It is for a company, Ann Loren, and they make girls clothing, infant up to size 12 I believe.
Here is a link to their online store. They also sell on Zulilly, Amazon, Overstock and then their outfits are sold throughout the US in children's boutiques!!
Here is a pic from their blog, super cute clothing!

 I have done 4 designs for them thus far, designs I will get to see in clothing in the summer!!! They own the copyright to these designs, and I am more than ok with that as it gives me a chance!!!
I am soooo honored and excited and validated!!!
And then I am also finding the world of BJD dolls/fairies and fabrics for them!!
Here is a new print, I will be listing today, it is gnomes! why didnt I ever think of gnomes before??? LOL

And then did up some hummingbird fabric too!!

ok spooky stuff

I finally got a new keyboard so all is good once more!! I have been working on some spooky quilt designs, and today I am playing around with aging them as I think witches or wizards would not necessarily have clean crisp new looking patchwork quilts?? :o) the3 last picture shows how the fabric looked before I aged it.

making stuff for molds and half inch scale copper pots and pans

I spent the day sculpting things to make molds as my casting stuff arrives tomorrow! yay!! Excited to do up some new things. I also have a custom order for some Alice in Wonderland chairs and well, in the process of organizing my space I put the origiinal sculpt, with the tea pot and cups used in my first chairs, aside and lost it!!! so had to make another one! Got a bat for the back of chairs, a fairy with mushrooms, a princess crown for little girls/boys and tea parties, and a couple other things!
Also, I got a custom order, well hubby did, for some half inch scale copper pots and pans and he made extra so I listed some up!

Here is a link to one of the pots if you would like! :o)

busy busy!!!! chairs and a desk station built!

I have to contend with a space about 5 feet square to work in, feels like a walk in closet!! LOL At least I have that though :o) I need to get an old window we have and cut a hole in the wall for a window to outside to make me feel less cramped!!! Anyways, last week spent all week madly getting chairs done and have spent the weekend building a shelf unit, work station, that I planned. My Mother in law took me to town last week and I got the wood, 1x4's and 1x6's to make a station where I can cut fabric, freezer paper, make molds, store or use sewing machine. and on and on.
I built it, painted it with 4 layers of paint, 2 earthy green and 2 layers white, then sanded down and eurathaned it all.
Because I have no car right now I was stuck in this process with only little art brushes, no paint brushes!!! And even if I had a car there was way too much snow coming down to drive 15 miles down our rural road to a dollar store! So the solution? get a rubber glove and an old washrag, dip in paint, slather it on!!! LOL And I painted the wall behind the unit white as well and used a little art brush to get that section where the wall meets the ceiling! making due, although I think I got tired last night and tipped over the gallon of paint all over the floor!!! Fortunately it was a part of our floor in front of woodstove that is just wood and needs to be replaced, but ugh!!!
If I werent so impatient I would have done more layers of paint! LOL It feels soooo much more open and organized. I used to have my old treadle sewing machine in that spot, so there is lots more designated space now!!! One shelf hinges down to create my mold making space. Under that is my paper and fabric cutting desk, complete with freezer paper roll on a tension curtain rod (even got some ribbon on it!!) way off in that corner is my clothes dresser LOL and I hung a rod above that for shirts or sweaters to hang! organizing in tiny spaces eh?
I have another unit ot 2 planned for my space! But for now this will surely help!!!
