The Sisters

The past month has been speeding by and though I've seemed pretty quiet, I've been getting a lot of things done on the "business-end" of things.

I'm anxiously awaiting my shipment of printed materials to arrive so I can start offering prints/post cards and stickers (yay stickers!). Included in there will be my first-ever artist business cards. It's very official of me, I know ;), even if they are miniMoos haha.

And, I've also been sewing/crafting almost every day in preparation for a spring Etsy store update and possible vendor sales. One of my major goals last year was to take part in more real-life events as an artist/vendor and I was determined to make that happen this year, updates on that later as they come.

For now, I want to show you the (finally) finished Siamese Sisters:



I wish I had a miniature widow's walk to display them. If I choose to keep them, at least for a while, it might be an appropriate excuse to splurge on an old doll house and make renovations.




Going through my work the past year, I realized I really love rococo era wigs and beaded headdresses.



This was one of my first attempts at embroidery, which I can literally call, "a shipwreck".




The petticoat and bloomers make her dress deliciously poofy.
