...disheartened meow pokes out from a pile of paper...
well it's the end of the year and I, being a high school senior, have the ordeal of applying to colleges. I have one last week to finish all the applications. So I won't be posting here until January.  But hopefully after this I will have some new dolls to show :)
Happy early New Year everybody! 


There is a woman named Eva living in the UK, she creates beautiful textile jewelry pieces from hand dyed cloth using plants from her garden in a traditional English manner. The fabric designs are paired with antiqued sterling silver, vintage beads and semi-precious stones.
 В Англии есть девушка Ева, которая занимается выращиванием индиго, крашением тряпочек, а потом, их драпировкой на классический английский манер.
Эти манипуляции с листиками и тряпочками необыкновенно воздушны и фееричны.

Crispy Griffon

Recently I made a felted griffon but didn't have time to make the wings, and today I finished them :) He stands about 2.5 inches and his wingspan is about 4 inches. He doesn't have a name yet :( any ideas?
Я недавно зделала ыетого грифончика но неуспела доделать крылья. Сегодня руки наконецто дошли :) Имени у него покачто нету :Р

This is him without ears. He looked like an ant at this stage xD
Вот он до того как я добавила уши. Он был очень похож на муравья хD

And then the ears appeared!
А вот и ушки появились! 

The body is made by needle felting wool. His face and legs are made out of sculpy and the eyes are painted with acrylics. The wings are crocheted with sewed on feathers which were scavenged in Your Basic Bird shop in Berkeley. The arms are made of wire. All the separate parts are sewn.  
Тельцо зделанно из фетра. Личеко и ноги ис скалпи и окрашины акриловой краской. Крылья связанны крючком и сверху нашиты перья. Руки зделланны из проволоки. Все части пришиты.

Lunar Eclipse!

Lunar eclipse tonight! :D

you can go HERE to see the times for your area in US and Canada


National Geographic published an article about lunar eclipses. It talks about how they occur and a bit of history of beliefs related to the red moon.


Some more card sketches and the final results. The finals are all drawn/painted on 3" x 5" index cards :P I'm out of card stock

And here are the finished cards from the previous entry. Painted with gouache, thus the colors. I'm not quite happy with the results

Happy Holidays

A plan for the list for the listless words picture. Couple items are missing but this doodle was too small to add them, I'm going to draw a larger one. Reverting back to my childhood days I want to get gouache, sadly unlike Russia America seems to have a deficit of all paints that are not acrylic. But in any case once I get my gouache this word list picture will probably be one of the first to be painted :)

And now for some Christmas doodles. I got a urge this year to send all my friends hand made postcards so these are some ideas for them.
