Hello foxy squatch!

Today was a non-sewing day, as I am feeling a bit under the weather...

The mini photo-shooting session with the Foxsquatches cheered me up a bit. These foxy little sasquatches struck their foxiest poses for me so they can be listed up on my Etsy shop. 

Tomorrow I may even attempt working on my website!!!! ( have you noticed I have not come up with any new years resolutions this year?? ).  Let's see if this will be the year I finish my website...

Happy 2016!

Arrrrgh!!! I have once again fallen so behind on my blog posting!
I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year ( even though now it's February...)

So much as happened since my last post!

The biggest news last year, is that me and Francesco married! I would like to share some photos of the all the preparations and photos of our special day but will save that for another post. :)

And the works on our house is still on going... Dont' ask...

So...this first post, for the new year, is about a group I am part of. It's called the Crafthulhu Collective. Each month, a member of the group chooses a theme and we then make something in our own style.

This month's Theme is Circus, selected by Angel (from Saint Angel Productions) and what a great theme it is! So many wonderful makes!

I almost forgot to mention some other artists that are part of the group, but did not take part in this month's challenge.

Do go say hi, if you do not know them already. They are a super friendly bunch with wacky imaginations.

There were a ton of ideas I wanted to implement! I LOVE CIRCUS!!! Choices.. choices!! It was almost impossible to choose... I grabbed my poi, swung them around and my mind was made up!

I love poi. A character with pose-able arms and legs was required for poi-ing and this was a good opportunity to try something new.

So I began making a character had a little wire skeleton.

The wire skeleton

All ready for posing

All ready for action!

I made her a dress and a little jacket to keep her warm.
Tying out tricks

But, for the final touch...she needed her furry balls to be on fire!
Using photoshop, I did some rough passes and painted in some fire trails.

The final images

Whooooosh... swoooosh...whoooooosh! Now I am itching to do fire poi again!

I will try my best to keep up to date with my blogging and do some catching up too. Hopefully, my next one won't be in February 2017!
