For my tiny amount of readers, I would like to apologize for disappearing for over a year. Life happened, and I've been incredibly busy! I have been working on some new projects, and I hope to have new posts coming up very soon.
In the meantime, enjoy these shirts I made. I found a tutorial for freezer paper stencils on the internet and made these. I found the tutorial here: http://www.stayathomeartist.com/2011/07/stencil-with-freezer-paper-harry-potter.html
These were a first attempt, and overall I'm happy with them. The paint I used cracked when I washed them, but it gave the shirts a vintage look that I thought was pretty cool.

I have recently started making books. I own a Cinch bookbinding tool that I won in a raffle for Habitat for Humanity, and I love it. Here is a book I made for a good friend who loves tigers:
I used chipboard for both covers, with regular scrapbook paper glued over it with acid free, archival safe adhesive. I work in a scrapbook store, so it was really easy to get the materials for this project. The pages are just regular 20# copy paper.

This is my newest creation. He was inspired by a chat with one of my best friends, and it was pretty much the result of a challenge on her part. I'm pleased to introduce you to Pan:
And of course, here's a closeup of his cute little face:

These are some of the dolls I've been designing and making. This started with some of my friends complaining that there is a distinct lack of good Pagan oriented crafts out there, so I decided to change that! I've started with the 5 elements - Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Spirit.
Terra, the element of Earth.
Aure, the element of Air.
Vanhi, the element of Fire.
Aquaria, the element of Water.
Akasha, the element of Spirit.
Each doll stands about 9" tall, and they also stand on their own with a little coaxing. I'm thinking about selling them, but I'm not positive on that as of right this second.
These dolls are just the beginning. I plan on making much, much more because I'm so full of ideas and they are just screaming to get out!
