Earlier this month I attended GenCon and hand crafted a few accessories and details inspired by some of my favorite characters. Today I want to share the how-to for my floral headband.
So I have been struggling for creative time, trying to figure out some new fun thing to inspire me and guess what? I found inspiration in some decorations our neighbor was creating for her daughter’s birthday! She is having a pink ladybug party and I thought… I wonder if I can make a ladybug with the ScanNCut?
What do you make for a teen headed to college? I went looking around the studio and found a super sturdy tote bag and thought… let’s customize it! In this post I will share my how-to as well as some suggestions for customizing your own tote bags. it’s so fun!
Hello lovelies! As I type this I’m working with Brother at GenCon (more on that soon!) in Indianapolis demonstrating the ScanNCut to some super nice makers & crafty folk. Back at home I have a brand new banner up in my studio and today I wanted to share about it!
As you see above – there’s this spot in the studio that I don’t love. When I take photos, I see this wide WHITE space… that isn’t pretty. So for quite a while I’ve had in my mind I want to do a rainbow banner – scallops if I can! [Read more…]
I’ve had some crazy ideas in my time, but this might just take the cake. Have you ever heard of cosplay? Essentially you’re talking about dressing up as a fictional character – and anything goes. You could be dressing up as your favorite super hero, TV cartoon character, or someone from a game! Some folks truly make an art of it, and it goes way beyond Halloween!
Now this idea has always intimidated me- I’m no seamstress! In recent years though, a form of dress up inspired by characters has emerged that has really caught my attention. Essentially using your own wardrobe with slight alteration to have a “normal clothes… but inspired by/clearly intending to be — character” look. So think colors, patterns, and designs simple interpretations that can be done with little or no custom DIY work. Also, think small. You can just add a belt, a necklace, or some other accessory you customized.
Why do I bring all this up? Well I’m flying off to GenCon 2018 to work the room with Brother ScanNCut team and I thought it would be fun to dress up a bit as I know so many attendees do! But what to do? What would be something I could make but also would be practical and comfortable? [Read more…]
