l0vemedreamer asked: How do you hang your tapestries??


Answer:

I use command strips! It usually takes about 4 or 5 to hold a tapestry, depending on the thickness/weight. Push pins also work on lighter tapestries, assuming you’re allowed to puncture the walls.

I made this pendant for my mother on mother’s day! I found the stone in our backyard and used a paper clip for wire! Talk about gifting on a budget!

We’re going camping this weekend, so I figured I’d share this little doodle which was inspired by our camping trip two years ago. Jacqueline, Brendan, Rob, and I created many an inside joke while camping. For example, we for some reason started talking about  babayaga (or any generic mountain crone) and it’s just sorta stuck. Also, Brendan thought it would be funny to replace the lyrics to foster the people songs with “pork chop” and we all got super freaked out by a fantom piece of string hanging from a tree in our campsite and called it the ghost string.
Anyway, for christmas this year, I got Rob a pork chop (gift card to a stake house), ghost string (piece of string), and babayaga (THIS DRAWING)! I’ll be sure to sketch something while outdoors this weekend, if the rain permits it! Chau

It’s been about 2 years since I’ve actively been blogging about my artwork and crafty escapades. I’m going to change that! I have a lot of paintings and sketches that I need to get up on here so my goal is upload one ever single day! Even though this blog may not reflect it, I’ve actually been more crafty than ever. I’m still actively making dream catchers (usually as gifts because I definitely have enough) and have been coming up with other gift ideas! For example, I made all of the women in my family copper pendants for mother’s day! I’ve been really into watercolors! and my sketch book really flourished while I was abroad!

 I figured I’d start my ‘blogging-new-year’s-resolution-in-may’ with the most stereotypical craft ever; easter egg dying! This year, my sister and I dyed eggs with Rob’s family (and Casper and Panda). It’s wonderful getting to see Casper. He reminds me so much of snowball. Since I don’t have my own place yet, adopting a cat isn’t really possible. I’ll have to wait patiently until the time is right and I will have to play with my friends’ cats in the mean time! #ireallylovecats #imissmykitty

I only just realized that I accidentally posted this on my other blog (my study abroad journal) and so… I will add it to the cats and crafts wall of fame! Featuring a handmade dreamcatcher on the right hand wall!
