I would like to share my other Etsy shop with you. Its called Doodleness.

I have had it open for a good bit, but have not really done any business with it. SO I re shot a lot of the pictures. I am very happy with the new pictures. I used some of my clothes for backgrounds for the pieces. I got some feedback that the brown dress form that I was using in the first batch of photos was too dull. I was told that it didn't go with my "lively" product. So here ya go.

New Pictures

I have posted new pictures of my quilts on my Etsy shop and I wanted to share them with you guys. My first batch of pictures were terrible. They were dark and hard to see. I am trying very hard to take better pictures and learn how to take a professional looking picture at home.
These are my new pictures. I used natural light and tried to "set up" a little display for the quilts. I wanted the viewer to have a better idea of the different ways the quilts could be used.
I hung the piece on the wall on my porch and set it in a stand.
I would love some feedback. And if anyone has a link to how create professional lighting in your home, I would love the link.
Thank you for stopping by.

Scavenger Hunt Project

So I am currently participating in Art house Co-op Gallery's Scavenger Hunt Project. They send you a list of 24 words and phrases, then you are supposed to interpret them and represent them as creatively. This has been a really fun project and has really gotten my creative juices flowing. One of the words is "Home" so I cut up a road map and made a little house out of it. On the front is a star and the words "you are here" like on one of those maps at a mall or something. I currently live in Atlanta so I made sure that when I folded up the map like a house that Atlanta would be on the front. I am from Columbus, Ga so the roof of the house has Columbus on it. I really enjoyed making this little guy and would love to know what other people think.

Well Here I Am!

This is officially my first step into the world of blogging. I'm am excited to have this little space that is for whatever I want it to be. My original reason for starting this blog was to promote my Etsy shops, but now I'm looking forward to just posting anything. I have this feeling of freedom, like I could have a lot of fun with this.

Well I am going to keep this first entry short because, honestly I am a little over whelmed. :)
But here is an example for some of my work. It is Copper and Brass weaved together with a blue patina. They can be made any size and are great to add a little texture to your wall. I love making these because I can experiment with them with different colors, shapes, and even adding objects and images to them.
