Is it art block or something else?

Hello hello,

These past few weeks haven't been the highlight of the year when it comes to creating artwork. It's not that I don't have a ton of ideas or even a ton of projects to do, it's just that I really haven't been feeling it. I find myself making excuses for pretty much any sort of project right now; even rearranging all the furniture in my room sounds more fun than starting the next sewing project. And that's awful seeing as I love to do that.

Onto happier things though, right? Here's what's been going on this past week:

A Quick Update for a Quick Week

Hey artsy friends!

This week is super short because most of it has been spent on my mysterious mystery project. I couldn't tell you all the work I've done even if I wanted to because of the secrets, so you'll just have to live with it until it can be revealed.

Mirabilia's Dressmaker's Daughter: Mostly Finished! + Onwards

Greetings my lovely readers,

This week marks the finalization of the time consuming project I started in January! With 263 hours of stitching and 26.5 hours of beading, a total of 289.5 hours, it's finally all come together. I'm saying "mostly" at the top because I want to figure out a saying / phrase / quote to go along the bottom with my signature. It was quite the journey with many progress photos along the way, but all my patience has paid off!

I'm smiling back there, I swear!

WIP: Mirabilia's Dressmaker's Daughter (Almost Done!)

Hello my crafting friends!

This past week has been very busy behind the scenes and the main focus on art has been beading Mirabilia's. I did a lot, I swear, from sunrise to sunset I've been on the move every day, but as I sit down to type this I'm finding it hard to pin it all down.
