Craft Night: Fall 2012

Fall is here in Little Rock, and so is CRAFT NIGHT!  We have these every so often with several ladies, some in the architecture profession, some not.  For this craft night, I decided I wanted to make a Fall/Halloween/Owl themed wreath.  I did a quick sketch of owls after searching "Felt Owls" on Pinterest.

I think I will live trace these and do something fun with them later this weekend.  I like the tiny one.

So, once I had determined a goofy owl, I did a quick sketch of what I wanted and set out for materials.

Here is my best guess price estimate on materials.  I had to run out quickly at lunch, so all of these were purchased at the Wal-Mart down the street.

Branch Wreath:  3.50
Felt (yellow): 2@0.23=0.46
Felt (red): 2@0.23=0.46
Felt (orange): 2@0.23=0.46
black pipe cleaners: 2.00
white pipe cleaners: 2.00
black ribbon: 2.00
orange ribbon: 2.00

Assuming you already have a hot glue gun, you can make this for under 15 bucks.  I had a lot of pipe cleaners and felt left over.

After a quick color sketch, I set to work on making the wreath.

Here is the finished product.  Now to hang it at my house.

Root Health Coaching Logo Design

I just finished a logo design for a friend who started a family health coaching business in Fayetteville.  It was a fun project, and I'm happy with the final product!

Here are some preliminary sketches:

The first sketch was the basis of design, which I created on the ipad, then I moved to a more detailed hand drawn sketch.

I used the hand drawn sketch as the base, then cleaned it up in photoshop, live traced it in illustrator, cleaned up the lines, worked on the colors and added text.  Here is the final logo.

Will the Pandemic Bring Back Blogs?

Over the last several years, I've seen bloggers reduce content, switch to YouTube or Instagram, or simply stop.  I was among them.  I ran a food blog for years, but after the birth of my first child, I couldn't keep up.

Well, that life seems like another world as the cases and deaths from Covid-19, caused by the coronavirus that is tearing across the world, are rising daily.  The White House is telling America this morning to brace for their, "Pearl Harbor or 911 moment," and it's very scary.

A lot of us who deal with stress by processing through our art are coming back to the internet, back to blogs.  Most of us are self quarantining, isolated inside our homes for weeks on end.  I'll be the first to say that I don't have a lot of free time in our endless confinement.  My husband and I are frantically trying to keep our two humans under the age of four happy, fed, and healthy.  We're four weeks in and going a bit stir crazy.  Every time we get a groc…
