Sharing a Personal Story

I’ve been holding onto some emotions for a while now, since December to be exact.  I decided that the best thing to do, was to share my feelings with the world, as a means to move on.  Along with emotions, I’m also sharing a handful of work that I’ve yet to reveal.  The two are connected, and you’ll see why when you read my story.  This is my moment for the week –letting go of the past!

You can read my story over at Oh My! Handmade Goodness

Also, check out my shop if you would like to see all the new items I listed this week.

Because people, smiles and laughter, more than anything else, is truly what makes a house a home, I hope you enjoyed this weeks “moment”…


om [one moment] meet upOM is *one moment* and is a meetup designed to notice & relish a moment in everyday life. The meetup idea was created by Linda at her blog, a la mode stuff.  If you’d like to participate in OM, just click the button and you’ll be taken to Linda’s post explaining it all.

Machine Applique Mixed Media Wall Art

I finished a custom, machine applique, mixed-media, fiber wall art piece this past week.  This piece was made for a nice lady in the UK; she runs a website called Mums Rock.  The computer is essentially a picture frame, so different photos can be traded in and out.

What do you think?

I think it’s a good reminder of all the computer work I need to get done today.  So, on that note, I’m signing off, and wishing you a productive  work day.

My New Series of Mixed Media Fiber Wall Art

What a cozy living room!  Don’t you want to move in?  Have a seat on the comfy couch, maybe cover up with the blanket, and turn on the lamp so you can read?
Hey look, someone is at the door.
It’s the Flickers.  They’ve come over to say hi.
The neat thing about this new series of wall art is that the frames are open so you can switch photos in and out, as often as you please.
I’m struggling to decide on a name for my new series.  Picture n’ Picture?  Frame Yourself?  Any suggestions?  

I have another three pieces already in sketch mode.  I can’t wait to share them with you when I finish.  
What do you think of this funky room?
Be careful, these aren’t baby proof.
Look who’s on T.V.
You too could be a star!
Keep an eye on The Artists’ House etsy shop, as these will be popping up for sale over the next couple days.

Knee Deep in Fabric, Paper, Wood, and Thread

I’m currently in the middle of working on six different projects.  Three of them fall in a series of mixed media, fabric inspired, wall hangings.  I’ll be offering them in my shop soon.  I don’t want to give too much away since they aren’t finished yet, let’s just say that I’m super busy and there isn’t much time for lounging on couches and watching T.V.
I’m also in the middle of working on two more quilts, both original designs.  I’m so excited to get them finished.  Until then, here’s a peak…
Oh no, I just spilt some water.
I must be going.  I really should get back to work and start paying attention to what I’m doing, before someone gets hurt.
