My new etsy is finally up and running!

Also I’m sorry about no crocheted flowers lately. I didn’t get the chance this weekend to do it because my boyfriend and I went up to Maine to visit his friends. We went to a clam festival which also had a arts and craft fair attached. This only furthered my desire to have a booth at a craft fair or con. I have also felt a bit under the weather today for some reason. Hopefully I will find the energy tomorrow to catch up on my crochet.
I know your name
But they know your meaning
Gliding smoothly without effort
Against pearly white backgrounds
They don’t know the word
For this atmosphere they inherited
Yet they understand it
Without any articulation
Why would they need to
Describe their natural state
Yet I look up
At this instinctive element
Wishing to make it my own
Recently on here I saw a post of someone doing a steampunk cosplay of Disney characters which you can see if you Click Here.
This got my imagination going wild with the idea of Disney princesses and villains going steampunk. I thought…why not try one of my own?
Since the movie Maleficent came on the scene, Sleeping Beauty has been put on the map again. Since I am petite and blonde I figured Aurora would be a good character to cosplay.
I have already ordered the skirt and top for it from Amazon. I made sure to find the perfect items
and was super duper persnickety and picky.
I decided the best course of action was to draw out what I would want in my cosplay.
The flower I made today is called Wavy Petals in the book and it is also quite large. Took 5 rounds to make which is a lot for a flower. I also couldn’t help but notice that if I stopped at a certain point it would have made a perfect wheel. I could also extend the “wheel” to make steampunk gears.
Orange, Red and Frilly.
This one was super easy! But the effect is quite lovely.
Last night my sister, mom, and I went to a paint night! If you do not know what that is then you should know it involves painting and drinking (the alcoholic kind). I wasn’t drinking because I’m still underage (I’m 20). But my mom had a Gin and Tonic and my sister had a Long Island Iced Tea.
We all were led by a woman with curly hair and a do-whatever-the-hell-you-want-it’s-your-painting attitude. This was refreshing. Of course some Bob Ross jokes were made mainly by saying “Happy Little Trees” and “There are no mistakes only happy accidents” and such. My sister told me she wants to hold her own paint night which sounds like a pretty fun idea.
Overall, paint night was fun and actually pretty easy. A lot of people had some nice pictures they did which had their own unique flair to them even if it was based on the same picture.
Anyhow…Here is the painting I did.
We Started With The Sky
Then The Mountains
Then Came The Terrain & Water
Then Added White Dots & Circles
