Mmm, tea! So warm and soothing, delicious at any time of the day. With sugar, lemon, honey, milk, and so many varieties to choose from there are nearly endless combinations to choose from. It’s tea, obviously, that inspired this adorable charm bracelet.
Check it out on my etsy shop here! Now if you’ll excuse me, I think I’ll treat myself to a cup of tea… :-)
It’s nearly Halloween! Halloween is possibly my favorite holiday. An excuse to dress up and wear funky makeup and outfits and watch scary movies all night long while eating candy? Yes please! And of course, getting to wear Halloween-themed jewelry is a huge plus.
I, of course, prefer to make my own Halloween jewelry. Like these two pairs of earrings I’ve made recently, both of which are up for sale on my etsy shop!
Happy Halloween, everyone!
Ah, robots! How can you not love them? R2D2 is a lifelong favorite for one of my robo-obsessed friends so I just knew I had to whip up this little droid just for her.
But just having R2 wasn’t enough; I felt like it needed something more…and then I realized: I met this friend on the Internet. Let’s add some Internet humor (and some mildly NSFW language) in there!
Yes, R2. Yes, they do.
I can’t wait to ship this little guy out to her! And maybe I’ll whip up a couple more since they were so quick and easy! I’ve got this pattern for sale on my etsy shop here if you want to stitch one up yourself!
The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of my all-time favorite movies. I could watch it every day for a week and still be happily singing along with it.
I’ve already posted about my first Jack stitching (and hand-painted frame!) here. Someday soon I’ll get around to stitching up a matching Sally for my Jack, especially after completing this commission. The red background turned out so wonderful, I wish I’d done the background for my Jack in red, too! 80 hours of stitching has never felt so satisfying :-)
You can buy Jack and Sally patterns so you can stitch them up yourself, too! And I’m always available for customized commissions!
I love doing custom work for people. When one of my friends saw my embroidered rainbow panties she decided she wanted me to do a few custom pieces for her. We talked about what she wanted and worked out a price, and ta-da! She got some custom items that she (hopefully!) loves!
Headband, two pairs of embroidered undies, and a butterfly bookmark
I even wrapped the bunny panties in a cute little carrot bag!
If you have an idea for something custom you’d like me to make, leave a comment and we can discuss the details! If not, I hope you at least enjoy seeing my custom work :-)
I finally got my Serenity Prayer cross stitch pattern up for sale. Check it out here!
I’ve decided that Etsy is probably a better choice for selling stuff than having my own website right now so I’ve been posting some of my patterns on my Etsy. Keep an eye out for even more patterns (and some jewelry!) for sale!
I’ve been wanting to make a Sally cross stitch pattern ever since I first stitched up my Jack Skellington back in 2009. Now I finally finished the Sally pattern! On sale here for only $5, get it along with Jack Skellington to make a great pair of stitchings!
I love cherry blossoms, they’re just so beautiful. I decided I wanted a cherry blossom tree in my home! Obviously, a full-sized one would be a bit cumbersome and difficult to keep alive inside…so I whipped up a fairly simple pattern and stitched it up. I used sky-blue Aida and mounted my finished pieces in 3″ frames I got for about $1.50 each at Michael’s.
I also have my Jack Skellington pattern for sale. Patterns are available here!
Trying to think of a gift for someone I was at a loss for weeks. Then suddenly I needed the gift in just a few days! I racked my brain for something I could make… I finally remembered Pink Floyd! And I knew that recreating the Dark Side of the Moon album art in cross stitch would be so simple. I sat down and made a pattern in less than an hour, then stitched it up in just a few short hours. When I was done, I cut my fabric to the size of a CD case insert, put some clear craft glue along the edges to prevent fraying, and wrapped it up. I was going to get the actual CD but I wasn’t sure if the person I was giving it to already had it.
But now, enough of Story Time! Here’s the finished product :-)
Pattern is available for purchase here.
