StencilGirl Products is hosting a Cyber Monday Sale! 25% OFF! So please, be my guest! Head over there, but read my pondering too. 🙂 I have come to love using Frixion Pilot pens for creating and/or transferring embroidered designs and ideas.

Printing away the day.
This is a day of off-set printing and I am using the StencilGirl L498 Vine Swirl to do so. As an aside, when I was at the Fashion Institute of Technology, I took a screen-printing class. I loved it. My first print was a design based on shoes and I got to cut rubylith, which is suchContinue reading “Printing away the day.”
Stencils, Stamps, Thermofax, oh my!
Earlier this week, I started a Speed Print job using my Lace Swirl Kit and I spoke about the difference between using the L498 StencilGirl stencil and the Thermofax screen to color the swirl portion of the design. So, today, I wanted to update you and show you the difference between the two. The StencilGirl stencil allowsContinue reading “Stencils, Stamps, Thermofax, oh my!”
Selfies in Stitch
We currently live in the era of the ‘selfie’. Participating in social media is almost akin to sharing a life in photographs. ‘Selfies’, photos taken of the self, by the self, are the go to method of getting images out there. As a young artist going through school to obtain a degree in textile design,Continue reading “Selfies in Stitch”
Lynn K and her new line of stencils, a Blog Hop!
I am really happy to be a part of Lynn Krawczyk’s Blog Hop announcing her upcoming line of stencils called ‘Marked’ by Artistcellar. While I wish I could have found my own set of Lynn’s stencils to play around and make some samples for you, moving and time constraints have gotten the better of me. What IContinue reading “Lynn K and her new line of stencils, a Blog Hop!”
On my desk
I am happy to say, I am on a creative roll, an amazing stint, where all I have been thinking about and doing in the last few years is coming together in new and exciting ways. It seems I am no longer concerned about what media I use to express my vision, cloth, paper, itContinue reading “On my desk”
Her name here:
I fell in love and I wasn’t even thinking about it. That is the way with love, don’t you think? It’s a backdoor experience. I really must thank Libby for sending me all of those pockets. I love the small pre-constructed squares. Libby has some master rippers over there. These pockets have snips of thread leftContinue reading “Her name here:”
Sewing, Stitching, Embroidery.
The Little King has been doing quite well. He loves Chicknbits. Arrow can no longer hear well, his sight isn’t 100%, but he knows Chicknbits. He will lead me to the cabinet when he thinks of them. He has been a snuggle bunny, lap focused. He is warm. He smiles a lot. We put anContinue reading “Sewing, Stitching, Embroidery.”
A Brooklyn day plus reconstruction!
Oh my goodness have I been having fun making stuff. I am exploring the concept of deconstructing, reconstructing and constructing. When we reconstruct our bodies after breast cancer, we can have procedures where you move fat from one part of the body to another, you can cut a flap of muscle and rearrange it, whoContinue reading “A Brooklyn day plus reconstruction!”
Move those labels.
Eucalyptus dyed silk satin over linen, replaced label. Soon to become a strap for a Gather your Sew-plies purse, hippie style. I am moving labels around within my wearable art pieces. Very excited by the idea. My medias are mixing, it can be quite confusing. My orderly nature rebels, but the stuff I am making?Continue reading “Move those labels.”
