Unicorn Instant Karma totem in progress— sporting a shell-shard horn and purple crackle quartz embedded in her back. She’ll head to my shop once I’ve finished her— probably Friday. :)

Painting constellations on some Cosmic Critter totem sculptures. They’ll head to the shop (corlista.etsy.com) once they’re painted and sealed.

If you could study any art/craft for 6 weeks, what would it be?

Just finished up this big Etsy order. Squirtle, Bulbasaur, Eevee, Dragonite, and Charmander will be on their way to Australia shortly!

Weekly Round-up - 7/21/14

Whew. Another exhausting week in the studio! Things have been pretty chaotic due to my teaching schedule, but NORMALCY IS IMMINENT! Just one more week of classes before a big, long break (no classes til the end of October!)! It will be glorious!

This week I made it through the following items from my Etsy queue: Charmander, Bulbasaur, Totoro Hat (baby-sized), and Eevee. I also have a Dragonite ready for assembly.

I taught two Cryptozoology sewing classes…

(Angler fish Spider-Dog thing in progress…)

I moved some of my polymer clay totems and paintings into a local shop (more details here).

And sculpted 8 new totem animals which are yet unpainted (Cosmic Critters: Pegasus 2, Ursa Major 2, Ursa Minor 2, Lepus, Lepus with waning moon bead. Grey wolf, camel, and polar bear.). They’ll head to the shop when they are complete.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get to work on any painting this week nor finish my piece for Week 6 of Summer of Color 4 (due to messy schedule), I’m looking forward to working at a less frantic pace in the weeks to come. Also, I’ll be taking a few days off in August to spend time with family, so that’ll be cool.

I think that’s pretty much the gist of it. I’ll leave you with a picture of a bunny I spotted in my backyard this week!

Before sculpting today, Matt asked me what I was planning to make. I said deer and whales. Now there are camels and bears on my desk…

Grandma with 4 kids in one of my classes: How am I supposed to sew four projects at once? You do it!

And thus, I sewed 4 projects at once while simultaneously teaching a class. I am made of magic.

Also, I am tired.

I’m excited to announce that I’ve moved the items pictured above from my Etsy shop to a great local shop called Bell’s Mystical Beginnings. If you’re local (Norman, OK), check out Bell’s on Main Street and see my adorable totem guys chillin’ out in a mossy fairy-village display. You also can pop in on 2nd Friday Art Walk (~6-10pm); I’ll do my best to be there as well!

(If you’re interested in purchasing these items/similar items but are not local, please contact me via Etsy and I’ll see what I can do!)

Got paid for a commission today (plus free lunch!!!). Bought groceries and rocks and YARN. Life is good.
