Have been neglecting my shop for a while (it’s a rented cubby in my friend’s gift shop). It was sparse and pitiful-looking when I went in to look for a greeting card earlier this week :’( So I plunked myself down in my studio (aka couch and coffee table) this weekend, and came up with these –
A family of deep sea creatures :D
Close-up of “Inky and the Moon” — moonstone and crocheted squid.
I also like to spend a lot of time writing and drawing the packaging. I hope the customers find them as amusing as I do… (Mike walked by when I was working on the cyclops and he commented, “he’s watching you!”, hence the tagline. We’re a great team :D)
I’m actually terrified of deep water, and cannot swim to save my own life, but I’m strangely attracted to sea-related things… I have more ideas swimming in my head (haha) for sea creature brooches and such, looking forward to making them in the upcoming weekends (or maybe even during the week if I can conjure up the energy)!
Hope you have a fantastic week!
