3D Cameos

So this is the new project I have been working on.

Interlocking my antler art in with my love of classically chic cameos.

Using up cycled frames and hand cut and sanded wood I attach a antler that had been naturally shed to give this classic look a abstract twist.

 

They will be available on AlwaysApril.etsy.com soon if they are not already.
Also they will be at  Ballston Arts and Craft fair October 8th and the Dc Craft Mafias Monster mash October 29th!

 

Cant wait.

 

May 11th… what am I up to?

Posted on

On May 11th 1987 around 2am  my dear sister  Kimberly (or womb mate as I like to call her) and I emerged from our mothers full belly and today we celebrate!

Well, actually I don’t know what she is up to but my celebrating involves putting real butter on my toast without guilt and not doing my hair or makeup…these things please me.

I have been a busy bee working on all sorts of new items for my shops and bulking up old favorites  for the DC Craft Mafia Spring Thing Craft Show! This will be my 1st ever craft show and however nervous I get my excitement will overpower! I have been rocking out some new jewelry with the wonderful help of my talented friend Lauren! I will blog about it when I have finished the whole collection. Also I have been focusing more on my Antler art! Trying to make them smaller, portable, and more affordable! And, as always, Slumber Jack. I have been working on Slumber Jack Jr! Thats right… baby Slumber Jack.

They will all be available in DC on the 21st!

My studio

Slumber Jacks Birth place

Check out all the neat people who have signed up to showcase their talent! I am so excited to be rocking it out next to all sorts of nifty people on Saturday May 21st!
