Last week was my final ceramics class in the first session with Kristen Swanson. Not the last class ever, since I already signed up for the second session, just the last one is session one.
The last class was all about glazing all the pieces we had made, which was super exciting. I had been itching to bring these babies home.
Once they were home I was still excited and decided each one needed it’s own photo shoot.
So that is what I did!
I have been sharing these on IG and will probably continue with the next batch as well.
So if you’d like to follow along,
just check out my InstaGram!
The next session is all about tall cylinders, trays and matching cup sets! I am still so excited!!!!!
This year has been all about experimenting and growing as an artist.
So this weeks shop update is all about surface design on jewelry. I drew up some wonky shapes, laser cut them out of acrylic, hand painted each one and then covered the tiny abstract painting in resin.
These have been so much fun to make and I love that each and every one is 100% one of a kind.
I also took some of my new ceramics designs and translated them to jewelry. These pieces are designed by me, then laser cut and engraved by me and then I fill in the engraved parts in different colors of paint. The finished pieces are so neat to look at and wear!
You can find all the new jewelry pieces here.
In other news, all of the
Crafty Bitches Club tshirts have shipped. Once photos started popping up of people wearing them I got a lot of requests for more. So I have started a second preorder with a delivery of early July. If you want to get in on this second run, just click on over to the order page here. Pin It
I have been trying to mix things up and have a theme for each shop update! This month’s theme was hand painted laser cut wood (with one or two exceptions)
I went through my old sketchbooks and picked several designs that I thought would make neat brooches. They are all based off my own taste, but I will be open to suggestions in the coming months.
I also went through some of my fabric designs and took out a few elements here and there as tests.
All in all I’m very proud of all the new pieces and love seeing them up in the shop.
Oh and I also threw in some new
XL Wall Scissors to mix things up a bit! These are made from 1/4″ MDF with Designer Fabric fused to the surface before laser cutting. They are a great addition to any sewing room (or any space really).
You can find all of these pieces plus more in the shop! Pin It
I had talked two days ago about making jewelry again and showed off some new marbled hexagon pieces. Well, I went another step and scanned a huge handful of those hexagons and digitized them to be used in all kinds of projects.
I thinking I’m going to run with this idea and see exactly what I can make when I mix my jewelry with my quilting. The sky is the limit.
For now I’ve added a whole bunch of pieces using the scans to
my Society6 shop…
I am slowly ordering swatches from
Spoonflower and currently a few colorways are available as yardage with more coming super soon…
Also any designs available in my Spoonflower shop can also be used on Sprout Patterns. How cool is this dress? I want it so bad…
Seriously, there is so much more I can do here! Other shapes, more casting techniques, different colors, etc. I am so excited by this project and will probably be sharing more about it soon!

A few weeks ago I received an email from
Zazzle.com with a coupon code for 50% off fleece blankets. I didn’t know that you could get custom made fleece blankets made, and the idea excited me. So I headed on over to their site and quickly uploaded a file and ordered myself a custom fleece blanket.
