So, as of late, I've become a little obsessed with terrariums, plant arrangements, succulents, air plants, and many other plant-related things. 
Here are a few of my little creations from this weekend. I have collected a lot of little figurines that I never really knew what to do with. I think I might have found the perfect home for them! 
 I found this shoe planter at a thrift store in Mt. Vernon. So lovely! 
 Poor girl, just chatting away....no idea what's going on around her....eeeeek! ha. 
 The lasso-ing cowboy has no chance against this golden-horned lovely. 
A trio of little containers I just love.

Today, I stopped by the UI Natural History Museum. It seemed like a great place to do a little drawing and exploring. 


 This lil' guy seemed like he maybe has some anger issues. 
 These are the drawings I ended up with. It was really fun......and these are definitely not things I would usually draw at home! :) 



I'm glad this feisty guy lives in that red area....allllll the way in Canada. Good Luck Canadians, eh. 

  Acrobatic skunk.


All in all, a great day of drawing.

Here's a little sneak-peak of a design I'm working on.....there will be much more to come, but I just had to share this little guy.

I just finished a really fun design for a Spoonflower contest. Fortunately, SF has called it..."NO MORE OWLS!!".....There have just been a plethora of owl designs in every single contest. And, they always place to boot! So, this week's contest is to propose what the new "owl" is. I say Turtles all the way!!! :) I was inspired to make a fabric that featured lots of little turtle personalities....the smarty pants ones, athletic ones, playful ones, and of course, some silly ones.

Stop Motion Video

I had the great opportunity to volunteer with the stir-fry project. Tiny circus-ers, members from the community, and the awesome team from the UI human rights group organized this event. For only a few hours of shooting, I think we ended up with something pretty great......and, most of all.....everyone had a blast! :)

Fabric 8 Contest

Spoonflower is hosting a contest, and the only requirement was that it had to be in the style of pen and ink colored with watercolor. Here are some of my favorite parts of the design I am working on....

Process

I'm in the midst of preparing for a new pattern design...two actually. Sometimes, I have to laugh at myself and the chaos that leads up to my design work. I thought I'd share a photo of what the kitchen table looks like today after a few days of work. I have a studio, but somehow I landed here to work on this round!
