Have you ever seen an axoltl? These adorable pink salamanders that are always smiling. I couldn’t help but draw one. Meet Ax:
Ax was drawn in pencil and then scanned into Photoshop and colored. I used a new set of impressionist brushes from Kyle Brushes (https://www.kylebrush.com/). Great textures, fun to work with!

This woman really puts herself into her cooking!
If Jill invites you for a moonlit stroll, I suggest you skip it.
This pillow project was a commissioned gift for a close friend. The mountains are made from a variety of purple felt and the fabric material is tie-dyed fleece, all found at Jo-Ann Fabric. My closures still need work, but I like how the pillows turned out.
I made patterns using tracing paper and cut out both sets of peaks at the same time. Each layer of mountains was sewn separately (background peaks first, etc.). Final size is 15″x15″.
Happy New Year from Colorado!
For Christmas, my husband’s family exchanges “family gifts” which often include handmade items and snacks. This year, I made a baby penguin pillow for each family.
The pillow measures 16″x 20″ and the pillow guts, flannel and felt material were all purchased at Joann’s — on sale, of course! http://www.joann.com/
I’ve been talking about getting a tattoo for years now and finally mustered up the courage. I’m not going to lie. It hurt! I didn’t cry or swear, but there was wincing for sure.
The first tattoo I got was the number 13 on my left wrist. Besides being my birthday, it’s my lucky number and symbolic of divine feminine energies. It took a while to design the numbers and I was tweaking them up right up until the needles came out.
The second tattoo was the Pleiades constellation on my right forearm. I am always drawn to this constellation when star gazing. Odd as it sounds, it feels like home.
How gorgeous is this? (below)
I traced this chart (below) and gave it my own twist. I like the idea of the stars being stitched together.
My artist was wonderful. Her name is Kat and if you’re in the Thornton, Colorado area, check out Elegant Ink. http://www.elegantink08.com/
Kat gave me Saniderm tattoo bandages https://saniderm.com/ and I highly recommend them for the hassle free healing.
Identical in every way but one.
