Tri-color Pillows

I've been planning to make some new stuff for a while but business things always get in the way.  I made these three coordinating prints and made them each into a throw pillow with coordinating cotton fabric on the backside.  They are available in the Etsy shop.  I only made one of each and probably won't be making more.  They are fun as a set but can be bought individually.  Enjoy the pictures!

Holiday Paper Cut

Doing that paper cut snowflake from the last post inspired me to do some more holiday related paper cut art so I made some paper typography which I photographed and made into some postcards to send out to all of the coolest people that make what I do possible.

Thanksgivukkah Presents

This year was a very special year because Hanukkah fell on the day before Thanksgiving making it a double mega-holiday that has never happened before and won't happen again for another 70,000 years. As always I made special presents for my parents and sister. 9"

Travel friendly zippered pouches with a new fabric and magenta zippers for my Mommy

A 9" tall giraffe I needle felted for my big sister (she loves giraffes and PINK!)
don't ask me how long it took :-P

A bit more manly colored pouches to hold my Daddy's on-the-go paper stuff.

Silly drawn hang tags

Wrapped presents using this amazing "I love you a latke!" wrapping paper from Target designed by my friend Liz Apple who does rad design for their holiday department!

And this card that speaks the truth...

Winter Crafting

I was feeling crafty with the Holiday season and wanted to make some cozy accessories.  I recently got some legit pom makers and had to try them out.

Close-up! This photo would make a sweet phone background.
Compliments of my macro lens.

I had so many colorful yarns I also knit up some cord:

I combined some colors to make this super long cord that 
would be a crazy bracelet/sleeve/layered necklace.

Yarn snakes!

I also tried my hand at making a multicolor 3D snowflake.  It looks pretty cool but took forever to make.  The ultimate nondescript holiday decoration.

I used the crafts I made for a holiday themed photo with all of the Mokuyobi Threads patches!
