Tarot ATC cards

Here are the cards I did for another swap on atcards. The sun and moon ones came first and I was thinking about doing the world to go along but the idea of the bunny empress and kitty emperor was just too much fun to not do. I can't wait to get to see what the swap partners did!

Valentine ATCs

Did these last night after finding out my swap partners for a V-day themed swap on craftster. I did them after the theme of "My Bunny Valentine". I hope my partners like them!

So I finished these shoes today - worked on them over the weekend.  They are bittersweet in that they were the last pair clearanced at Target so no more painting ballet shoes until I can find some more cheap fiber ones.  They were originally a leopard printed velvet material that I painted using a pink/gold metallic fabric paint and sharpies for the decoration.  So excited to wear them!

Monty Python ATCs

Just totally finished my ATCs for the Monty Python swap. I like holy hand grenade one the best. I tried something different with the Spanish Inquisition one, I hope no one gets upset that I tried a little bit of a different format. Now I joined a tarot card swap. I already finished one so I have three more to go, I will post those later!

Long time, no craft

So we had our beautiful baby girl 12/13. It has been a trying five weeks seeing that we are brand new to this parenting thing. But we have successfully kept her alive this long. But during all this I obviously haven't had too much time to craft, seeing that just taking a shower seems like a luxury. However this past week the baby has started sleeping more and I have had a chance to do some things. Here are a few ATC cards that I made, I have this new little character I created that I am fond of:

I also found the site whch I am taking part of a Monty Python themed swap. Last but not least I am working on making a couple of hand puppets from some felt I made with some thrift store sweaters. The baby seems to get a kick out of the one puppet we received as a gift so hopefully she will like these ones as well. It just feels good to get back to creative time again.
