This week I have a completed project to show though it's scope is somewhat less... ambitious than usual. This time I cut, inked and mounted a wearable paper cut. Overall the process was mostly the same, except smaller, and a lot harder since I'm on cold medicine. This is the full cut before being put… Continue reading Giftin’
I decorated! I love decorating! Ok so, to be honest, I totally had most of this stuff up before Thanksgiving. Don't judge me! I get excited! There really isn't much to say other than I am super surprised and proud that Iris hasn't knocked everything down yet. Yet being the key word here. We got… Continue reading Tis’ the Season!
Well, 100 without missing one means we earned a break I guess. Still I've been more busy with general housework than with actual projects so I'll just show a few of the works in progress and the other random bits I have around the desk. I've been working here and there on another paper cut.… Continue reading And then we miss one
Last week was our 100th post, which is great. With the holiday come and gone and a few house projects wrapping up I don't have a lot of images to share this week.

And two days later here we are again. Lots going on. Lots. No wait no. The opposite of lots. What I do have to share are a few pieces that I have in progress. I'm working at a lot smaller of a scale this week so I was actually able to design and cut this… Continue reading Fire gone
This week I've been trying to learn how to ink with brushes. The results have been questionable, but I still thought I would share. To get to the finished product though I started with a little draft. So what if it's on the outside of an insurance bill. Paper is paper. After that I… Continue reading Brushes
Right now I'm not feeling so great. The baby and I have a bad case of lay on the floor and watch children's educational programing. As such not much movement has been made on the house and art projects. Instead we'll reflect on the weekend past. This weekend, deep in the bowels of the Detroit… Continue reading S.O.S.
