It’s been a very stressful couple of weeks, been working really hard and learning A LOT! Thus my delays in blogging… To somewhat relax (well attempted to relax, but didn’t work so well x.x), I worked on a couple art things with Independence Day coming up soon.
The beaded animal part I’m pretty much finished with and have them listed on my etsy site (which I reopened). The book part I’m still working on, but anticipating to be done by July 1st 🙂
I hope everyone had a great week last week, and has a wonderful week this week!
Goodnight and sweet dreams! ❤
Going to be very busy for the month of June (well, for the next year actually) however, I will just mention for this weekend right now!
I will be at the Omaha Summer Arts Festival on June 10th, 2017 for the Omaha Arts Council. We will be handing out flyers and having a Come Paint With US! event near Cupcake Omaha. The Paint with us event will be from June 9 – 11th all day. For more info you can check out www.omahaartscouncil.org
Also on the list to do:
- I will be working on my next eBook for the Ashley’s Diary series 🙂 (The first being – Dear Diary: Today I woke up a werewolf). I will have it completed by June 30th and have it up on Amazon by July 1st ^.^
- I’ll be making Red, White, and Blue themed beaded animals and tissue paper flowers to sell in the old market this weekend (near the Come Paint With Us! event). The beaded animals will also be available on my square store for those not in the Omaha-Metro area 🙂 (I don’t put the flowers on there due to their fragile nature when shipping)
So yeah, that sums up most of it! (For this weekend anyway lol)
Have a great weekend! Hope to see you out at the Festival!
Monday Musings… On Tuesday
This post is a day late due to some technical difficulties!
As an update, I submitted my short story for the Kindle UK contest and am now awaiting for it to be reviewed. It’s called: Dear Diary, Today I Woke Up A Werewolf. I’m pretty excited, it’s my first fantasy diary format I’ve done. I’m hopeful it will do well! I’ll let you know once it’s up on Amazon 🙂
On another note, Today I visited the Intercultural Senior Center in Omaha and volunteered to teach an art class June 8th at 12:00 p.m. =^.^= It will be my first time teaching at a senior center, so I’m a little nervous yet excited! I will be teaching them how to make tissue paper flowers (carnations to be exact).
To add to it, I’ve attended several meetings this past week (including the weekend!) and worked at the Veterinary Clinic as well – Busy! Busy! Oh, and also happy belated Mother’s Day to Mom’s (both the Fuzzy animal kind and little people kind!)
Have a great evening! Thanks for reading!
Tick’s are bad near the water right now, I’m still finding them from my shoes on my Sunday hike! (Little rascals!)
I created some green items for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. A little delayed being it’s tomorrow x.x Though they are still pretty even after the day for wearing green.
Shamrock Green Scorpion
Green/Gold Turtle Set
Green Lizard Set
In addition, I created a new pattern: the Cockatrice. It is my depiction of the mythical beast, having bat like wings, scattered feathers, and an unkempt/uneven tail. Depending on which mythology and area, these creatures use petrification or poisonous breath, bite, and/or even a death glare (no really, one look could kill). Despite these deadly tales, the cockatrice’s I make are more guardian’s and watchers than death bringers.
Hope everyone has a great weekend! And a happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Testing out new coloration’s of my beaded patterns. I shall take photos as I complete them ^.^ As a little spoiler, it’s in celebration for June 17th – 24th 🙂 I shall have a longer post later this week with pictures!
Hope you have a great evening! Thanks for reading!
Chimera next to quarter
One of my other patterns I made up while in Washington ^.^
The chimera in mythology generally has three heads: Dragon, Lion, and Goat – with a lion’s body and either a snakes tail or a scorpion tail. My version has a snake tail, which fits well with the end of the wire because I made a tongue out of it 🙂 Also the snake tail seems to keep the front from being too top heavy (which I found to be a little bit of an issue with Cerberus – he’s top heavy). I set a quarter next to the finished prototype to show how small the seed beads are I work with. The chimera is barely twice as big as the quarter! LOL I might make my next Chimera with a scorpion tail just to see how it comes out, which it might look similar to the manticore except with three heads.
Hope everyone had a great weekend! Have A Goodnight ❤ And thank you for reading 🙂
Cerberus Front View
Cerberus Side View
Cerberus Back View
A warm welcome to Cerberus, the newest addition to the fantasy beaded animals! He may be tiny, but he’s a force to be reckoned with. Cerberus is the three headed dog of mythology that guards the gates of the underworld, which makes this canine triple trouble! This little guy was fun to make, and being my own pattern, very satisfying as well ^.^ I used brown tone, gold, and red seed beads and wire to create this little guy. It took me a few tries to get the pattern right, though it was well worth the effort!
Hope you have a great weekend! Thanks for reading! 🙂
