Look at the faces I have finished painting. As I've said before painting does not come easy for me, I must have painted 20+ eyes yesterday. But the practice has definitely paid off, these look so much better than the first faces I did. This is a sneak peek of a work in progress that I hope to have done over the week end. I'll make sure to keep you posted on the progress.

Does anyone have any eye painting tips to share? I can get one eye okay but the second one always is a little off, they are never the same. But I think they are passable for now. I'll keep practicing in the meantime.

New Handbag

Here is a custom order handbag that I've been working on. I really like the peacock with the cool feathers. I used a linen for the front with Amy Butler fabrics for the feathers, the peacock body is a woolen felt. The applique is my on design and was a lot of fun to create. Of course as always I get nervous doing custom orders. I always worry that it isn't what they had in mind. It's so much easier selling things already made. Do any of you feel the same or is it just me?

I have been featured on my peeps Jodi Reeves blog The Creative Jar, it's her 1000th blog post so hop over and say hi and congratulations.

I have a lot of ideas in my head right now and hope to share more with you soon.
