August is here!

Hello all! I hope your week is going fantastically!

If you're a reader of my blog, you've probably noticed I've been blogging a lot less lately. It's mostly because it's summer time, and I either want to be outside, or am passed out about inside from the heat. As the weather starts to cool down, I'll get back to posting daily, but until then I will try to post two times per week or so.

 The good news is I've been busily working on items for our new shop, Sparrows Trove, which will be debuting very soon. The items are looking gorgeous, and I can't wait to share some pics with you hehe...!

I'm also hoping to be able to go to the Vancouver Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention this September, and am busily creating new art to share. My friend Alison Spokes is going to be there too, and I'd love the opportunity to meet her in person.

Here is a new piece I'm working on. It started as a plain ol' sketch I scanned into photoshop, and then after cleaning up the line art, I though about adding colour to it, and here we are. It's inspired by Marie Antoinette, burlesque, and of my love of details. I used various photoshop brushes made by some talented deviants:

This weekend I might be going camping at a friend's cabin. I'm nervous, because of my anxiety and agoraphobia (so obviously this would be hard for me to do), but at the same time I LOVE camping. I love everyone sitting around the campfire roasting hot dogs, and swimming, and falling asleep under the stars. I really hope I can overcome my fears and have some fun.

Are you guys doing anything fun in August? Oh! I can't forget to say, Happy Lughnasadh!


  1. I hope you can make it to VCON! I'd like to meet you in person too! Will you be selling your art there or mostly your jewelry? Or just coming to enjoy the convention?

    1. I hope so too! I'd like to sell some art & jewelry, as well as participate in the art shows. ^_^ I can't wait to meet you!

  2. I hope you do make it down to sell some of your beautiful art.

    Let me know if you got out camping? I am not a camper but I would love to see you get out and enjoy it;)
