Prompt # 5

I am so in love with this journal page! I've had awesome conversations with the artist too about yarn suppliers!


These colors make me smile & so does the suitcase of yarn! Amber is so much fun & her most recent post really made me stop and think! I too tend to be WAY to hard on myself!

Sunshine Day Squares

Such a cute granny pattern!! The colors are so pretty too!

Beautiful Embroidery! I would frame this and put it by my night stand!

amigurumi pumkin #1

How ADORABLE! I'm thinking of making a creepy little pumpkin myself. I've been looking for Glow-in-the-Dark Yarn! Bernat used to make some, but I can't find it. But I am thinking about making a black pumpkin with an orange stem and stitching!

Well, everyone I hope you are super inspired and please go to my favorites for each indvidual photosteam, they are so lovely and beautiful!


Ms. Fawne: Simply Amazing

last night was so wonderful I can't even begin to describe it!

I got off work at about 5 and went to the store for supplies & batteries.

Then I headed up to Built to Last Tattoo's in Thomaston, where Ms. Fawne works. Fawne is an amazing artist that I've known for quite some time now. I don't exactly remember how I came to know her, I believe a friend told me about her paintings and showed me her website, but anyways I've been a big fan of hers for years now. She is such a great artist whom I have followed for years and I really admire her style and imagination!
Check out her blog & her etsy

I remember she was the first person I had ever known to collect OWLS! Ha, now I know quite a few people who do! But Fawne created a painting called "Bird Love." And I absoluly fell in love with it! When Robin and I were dating we said we were both going to get it tattoo'd on us! I knew that Fawne really wanted to be a tattoo artist & after 5 years of knowing her last year she started tattooing! She created a facebook page for her work (i will link back to the FB page later, FB is blocked where I am right now). From there we chatted back and forth about Bird Love and how I always wanted it as a tattoo. We were both really excited and decided to do it! So, it's like a dream come true for me! And I am so happy that Fawne accomplished her dream of becoming a tattoo artist!

And another really cool fact about her (there are tons! she is really an awesome & interesting person!!) she was the FIRST person EVER to have an Etsy. True Story.

So, needless to say to have her tattoo me last night was an honor. It's not everyday that an artist that you adore becomes a tattoo artist and gives you such a great expierence. It was amazing!!
Tattoo In Progress

Here is the work in progress! You can see the painting "Bird Love" on the left! Isn't it so amazing? I wish I could have bought it back then so I had the original! We decided to do a scaled down version of the painting because of the tatoo being on my shoulder. I really like the whole painting, but as a tattoo I think the entire thing wouldn't work. Fawne agreed & we decided to use just the bird bodies without the legs because they wouldn't have a place to ground themselves. They would just be floating on my back.

Tattoo #2

Here is the finished tattoo! This was taken last night when I got home on my camera phone, but when I get my pictures uploaded I will post some more!

Please go check Fawne out. She is a true artist and so much fun to be around! Seriously, she's as cool as they come!!!

My Secret Pal Is AWESOME

Quite some time ago I got goodies in the mail!


It was a really good day too because when the mail came there were a lot of people at my house & they were all really excited about the package & couldn't wait for me to get home and open it.

It was kinda like Christmas!!

Pretty Doodles

Complete with pretty doosles all OVER the box!

Insidethe box were the most happy making things!

There was NERDS, sour patch kids, sour worms, peach rings, sour gum drops- EVERY Imaginable delicous gummy candy! There were CROCHET HOOKS. CROCHET HOOKS PEOPLE! My Secret Pal KNOWS me. Seriously. She is amaaaaaazing!

Most IMPORTATNLY & Better then everything else that was in my package there was a note/collage.
Secret Pal Collage

Why, Yes! I do believe in magic. Most assuredly when station wagons with tons of things involved. If I didn't believe in magic when I saw this page, I did after I read the note on the back.
Secret Pal Collage

Isn't this the coolest collage? I adore it! But the words written, I don't know if you can see them very well.. I needed them, desperately. I needed to hear from someone that it was going to be okay. Even in the simplest words. I really cried when I read this. The happy tears that someone GOT it and someone understood.

So, secret pal: You are the awesomest. And I am quite sure the best secret pal in the whole group. I ain't lyin' people she is AWESOME!

Whoever you are, and I've looked for you & tried to figure this out but I'm just going to let it be. Who ever you are THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANKYOU! A kajillion times thank you.
