I am a Self-Loving Creature

Hello my glitter-loving friends,

This week marks the completion of the Sunflower Ballerina so she just needs her final photoshoot now. Her completion marks 26 five-inch-tall dresses finished and 500.5 hours (no typo!) on the final hour marks for them. There's, naturally, plenty of extra uncounted hours involved with planning and pattern-drawing (at the very minimum 100 more hours, in fact). I'm quite proud of my achievement and this isn't a secret. In fact I was so happy about reaching 500 hours that I even allowed a rare photo of myself slip into the mix.

Sleeping All Day Makes for Less Work Done

Hello my sleepy crafters,

My sleep schedule knows no limits and it would seem that I am back in the reverse schedule this week where I doze come sunrise and wake at sunset. I have no excuses or reasons for it, it's just what seems to happen over a period of time and hopefully next week I'll be back on society-acceptable sleeping patterns. As such, the progress on artwork this week has been placed more on planning stages than actual working.

Plans and Currents

Hello there my artsy friends,

This week has been dominated by a distracting amount of Arizona monsoon storms! Every day this week it's rained and while I would love to blame power failure on my lack of WIP photos, the truth is I turn off all the lights intentionally to watch the storms. There's still been plenty of work done in the meantime, with two sales helping me restock supplies and three dress plans coming into fruition. Let's start with the current work and then move onto the upcoming plans!

A Stitchy Week

Hello my quality readers,

This week was spent mostly on cross-stitching with the time split up among three different projects with a fourth looming on the edge. I finished a bead dress at the beginning of the week so, quite naturally, we'll start there.

A Very Long, Very Busy Week

Hello my equally-or-more busy friends,

There are weeks where I look up and realize it's Thursday and wonder where the entire past three days have gone. "What have I been doing with the past 72 hours", I ask myself. Usually the answer comes back, "nothing." This is not one of those weeks.
