I made the mistake of showing it to Mum Mum (what we call my mom). Ok, it wasn't a mistake... but I sucessfully lost myself a mug! She really wanted it and because I had never made anything like that for her, I told her that she could have it once I made myself another one. Which I plan to do here in the next week or so. I love painting so I really can't complain. And for me, the thrill of a project is in the making of it. Mine will have a different design, but the same long legged thumb print "peep peeps" will totally make another appearance!
This next project came with an added bonus. Quiet painting peaceful bliss! To be more specific - 5 hours of bliss! I left L'bug with her Grammie and Grandpa (Der's parents) while I went and painting this platter for some friends of ours that are getting married in October. I made the design in CS4 and then transfered it to the plate. With a very small paint brush and a Vente Caramel Macchiato I made them a personalized pub platter. [try saying that 3 times fast!]
I found this cute pub saying:
"If you're Irish you're one of the family! If you're not we're too drunk to care!"
Introducing.... Pin Cushion Boot!!
Ok, so if you've read my last post about pin cushions you will recall the beautiful Victorian shoe. That pin cushion I made for my mom and told her that she could have it once I had taken pictures and documented it. Well, a good friend of mine, K and I went to shopping to the Antique mall at 40 & Big Bend. I always find really great things there, but my mission this time was to find a pin cushion replacement. Little did I know I would find something so wonderfully random!
