Velvet Strawberries

I came across this Lovely blog called Velvet Strawberries looking for pictures of you guessed it Velvet Strawberries!!! Actually they didnt have to be velvet, just the old fashioned pin cushion kind. I found so many different kinds and I made a few myself. I will get some pictures of the ones I did soon!! Also I really need to learn how to sew better... well I just need to do it more. I really need to do something with strawberries, I dont know why I like them so much but I do !! I think these came from one of Martha Stewart's magazines but they're pretty cute!!

Lovely Bird Houses

I absolutely LOVE this artist and these birdhouses, I want one!! fact all of her stuff is so cool and simple and original.
I think for the next few posts I'm gonna show and tell some of the art and artists I admire or certain ones that inspire me, there are soooooooooo many and I will hopefully figure out ways to link to their sites and also create a list of my favorites.

Dreamin of summer time ! Snowstorm is predicted for tomorrow but before I know it my backyard will look like this again!! Isn't the dragonfly Fantastic?? He came to visit one day last summer, and made his home in my flower pot for a whole day!!

I'm keeping this one!

I made this bunny one year ago but never finished her.I always intended to submit her to the magazine Art Doll Quarterly. I will have to part with it for quite some time but thats ok.
Sometimes I find that its hard to write once I'm on here posting throughout my day I have to write down everything I want to write about.

new bunny

I think I finally am getting the hang of this! It's not as simple as I thought. I made another bunny and finished her with some cool vintage trim and cute little millinery flowers. I have other views but I'll get those up on my etsy shop as soon as thats up and running.Her little basket is sooooooooo sweet! I used cute little glass seed beads to create the handle and those carrots are the best!! The green tops are made with cool fun fur yarn!!
As soon as I figure out how to get some links to my favorite artist bloggers out there I think this will be so much fun!! There are so many inspirational artists out there. Cant wait to meet you all!!
Love, Kat
