Girl Next Door Show 2009

Sorry for the sparse posting yet again... been busy putting on the Holiday show and creating like mad....
Come if you can to see all the splendor...
I'll post some cool peeks at what I've been doing after the event on Thursday.
In the meantime you can check out the new site I've been working on here.


Big Headed

This is why you have cool brothers because they show you things like this.
Eric Testroete created an enlarged 3D graphic of his head for his Halloween costume. I think it's one of the coolest things I have ever seen. Click here to learn all about it.

Cool Gifting 101

Um, this is freaking rad.
If you don't think you can make a holiday gift this year, think again! You can at least adorn your prezzie with a cool handmade bow. The link will take you to the directions directly.
So groovy!

Okay, you know what? I just can't get over how cool some paper cutting designs are. I recently took a class on Sherenschnitte and my teacher has some amazing work on her blog. These are two examples. I can't get over the thin cloud lines... absolutely beautifulbeautiful. So so cool! It plays my Maxfield Parish heart strings. That pirate ship is magnificent! There is just not enough time in this life to do all I want to do. It takes some great practice to master this and have an eye for the art and I am impressed with hers. If you are as well, check out her site- she offers free downloadable templates to practice cutting your own pieces. How cool is that?
