Star Wars Apron & Hiatus

Over the weekend I went to a 4 year old's birthday party and brought this Star Wars apron as a present! I'm really impressed at how well the apron turned out; it was made with most of a fat quarter and some binding.

I also want to let you know that I'll be taking a blogging break starting immediately. I'll likely be gone for several weeks, I'm not entirely sure how long I'll be away. You should subscribe (via email or RSS) to be notified when I return.

Valentine Bear

My sister asked for a series of paintings that could replace the Christmas Bears each season. They needed a valentine bear so I painted this cute Koala holding a heart. Happy Valentine's Day!

Dog Mask Free Printable

Lunar New Year is next Friday, February 16th! 2018 is the year of the dog and following my tradition, I made dog masks to celebrate!


I couldn't stop with just one dog mask, I had to make a few different types of dogs.  You can download all three! Happy New Year!

Like Grandma and Grandpa used to play

I finished the string art and added a bit of hand lettering!
