A Stuffed Fabric Chili Horse

A stuffed fabric chili horse you might wonder??! Yes heard correctly. Everyone should have one. But just don't eat it.

Handmade Chili Pepper Fabric Horse

Feeling the need to belly up to my sewing machine again after a bit of a breakup....I figured it would be a great time to whip up a birthday gift for a good friend of mine. She teaches horseback riding and likes the whole chili pepper! A stuffed horse materialized from my weekend sewing frenzy. It is insanely cute but did take forever to make. As with anything in life, I'm sure the more I do, the easier they will fly off the sewing machine as I become more adept at rounding those tight curves. Mario Andretti....LOOK OUT!!!!! 

I am looking forward to trying out the giraffe and lamb patterns that came with this. I just cut out the pieces from some really cute skull print I will be attempting those in the very near future. Just a little friendly diversion from wielding the fiery acetylene torch!

Banner Revamped!

I'm baaaaaack!! After another hiatus away from the blog, I decided it was time to face the blank 'new post' screen and attempt some writing again. I'm dusting off the cobwebs a bit, so please bear with me. LOL. I will make this one short and sweet....and to the point.
**I have finally revamped my banner! The other one was just so.....blaaaaaaah. I've never been so glad to hit DELETE in my life. That felt good. Out with the old, and in with the new**
So, I look forward to re-visiting the 'page' and making some incredibly valuable contributions to mankind with my posts. Hey, stop laughing....I can dream. HA!
Until next time...
Peace Out Girl Scout.

It's Been Awhile......and Cactus Monday

Well it sure has been a loooong time since I last posted. A good 9 months or so. BUT....I think it's time I got back into the swing of things! I am going to jump back in....but not with a jewelry post today....but with a little tiny Artist Card for Cactus Mondays. I have recently discovered the world of ATC's and am hooked. Although I pretty much get hooked on anything. HAHA!!  These have been fabulously fun to create and I think if I commit myself to doing at least one a day, my drawing/painting/creative skills will only get better. Which....will help me in my jewelry design as well as I will be thinking more creatively.'s a little card called 'Peace Cactus'.

This card was created using watercolors and markers. I am sharing a little Peace Cactus with everyone today!

Until next time.....

About Me

My photo
Chester, NY, United States
Dreamer? Stargazer? Quirky Aquarian? All of those! And, I am a self taught jewelry designer with a voracious desire to learn anything and everything. I have been working with metals for a year now and have not blown up the garage or burned off my eyebrows yet, so I'm heading in the right direction. I tremendously detest my dead end boring desk job and spend most of the day finding ways to distract myself by doodling/sketching, making sculptures out of anything and everything I can find, drinking and spilling lots of coffee, and making my coworkers laugh. I have a love/hate relationship with my sewing machine, I enjoy getting tattooed, I'm an eternal optimist, I love my watercolors and oil paints and wish I spent more time with them, I have an over-active imagination and consider my mind to be my own worst enemy, I have an uncanny knack to spell almost any word (how can I capitalize on THAT?!), I like making people laugh, I enjoy photography – especially taking macro shots of my metalsmithing tools and I am in a perpetual power struggle with my wild and crazy curly hair. And, last but not least..nothing makes me happier than to see and feel a piece of my soul in everything I create.
