5 Winter Project Ideas + Follow Me

Today, I have some exciting news that I would like to share with you. I have been working on a new artist site and blog all season. It will be my new home base where I will share my daily inspiration and projects that you can try based on work that is evolving from my studio. I would love for you to consider finding me there.

For now, I would like to share, 5 of my favorite Winter Art projects that are handmade and craft-based. I plan give many handmade gifts this year, and these are my top 5 favorites.

  1. DIY Winter Succulents– You can see a DIY of this workshop over on my blog today.

  3. Block print your own gift wrap, I would love to try this beautiful tutorial. It feels even more satisfying to give when you have all your gifts in pretty colors and handmade paper.

Blogging here has helped me to grow immensely as an individual artist and product designer. I am thankful for those of you who have followed along over the years. I plan to continue to post project ideas here from time to time, but you can what my studio life emerge and grow here.

I hope you will come along for the ride!

Woodland Round-Up!

This weekend in Los Angeles was a cozy one for me. The drizzle of the rain, a rarity, in sunny L.A. helped me to focus on taking creative photos inside my studio this weekend.

For my Etsy shop, I have been getting into the gift giving spirit, bookmarking all the great finds out there on Etsy and tailoring my collection for the holiday season. My goal this season is to hand make as many presents as I possibly can and support other hand made artists in the process.

These gift tags are in candy cane colors and are large enough to write a note on the bag of each card.

This next set of photos takes on a woodsy feeling. I love going up to the mountains near the edge of the city and camping in the summertime. These earrings, paintings, and pillow are inspired by those adventures.

These children’s cloth napkin idea came to me on Friday, while I was working with some of the young aritsts that I teach. The cute Montessori school had adorable reusable cloth napkins that I saw folded neatly into a basket. I plan to make them a gift of these holiday napkins, with hand printed silver doves. 

I am so grateful for each and every one of one.

I promise more fun surprises and gift ideas in the weeks to some.

Happy Thanksgiving!
