My new Dress Form!

My parents gave me money all the way back in August for my Birthday to get a dress form and after lots of comparison shopping and ebaying this is my final purchase. I wanted a vintage one because I wanted it to look good as an art piece but also be useful in making clothes.

I tested it out too! This was a sewing apron I made a few months ago.

My Talented Friends

So I just want to tell you all that I have been blessed with some of the most creative and talented friends and family. They all work in such different mediums and do such amazing things.
This is my good friend Brent Colbert's music The Awful Truth. He just release his Cd last month. You can check out his music here. With this album you can pay as much as you want for the Cd which I think is an awesome idea. One of my favorite things about his music is his song writing which is so honest. You cant really tell its me but I was lucky enough to be part of the cover. My Friend Maddy Lucas who just happens to be the best photographer I know took this rockin' picture. If you have time I would check out her website and blog. She has some really fun stuff on it. I am so thankful to have them both as friends.

Paper me

At work we have these really cute paper doll kits and I was doing samples of what they look like and decided I needed to make one of Me, Ryan, and our little kitty Sushi.

I also have been decorating my art and sewing room and made this bulletin board.

While I was painting the wood panel Sushi decided she wanted to jump on top of it. I grabbed her before she could get to the carpet. However, her paw prints were left on my art table and I thought it was pretty cute and kept it.
