The Essence of Joy

Hi everyone!

I'm in the weeds right now trying to get ready to leave for Blythe Con this week! But before all that, I wanted to share a wall hanging I made for a friend. I started with one of those $1 paper type canvases, it had a picture of Tinkerbell on it. lol I wanted to just paint and ink over her but she is one tough broad and did NOT want to be covered up. lol Soooo I went to the napkins and Mod Podged that all over her fairy face.


Speaking of which, how come Tinkerbell lives in a place called Pixie Hollow, uses pixie dust but everyone calls her a fairy? I always thought of a pixie and a fairy as two different things but Tinkerbell seems to use them interchangeably and it bugs me for some reason.

Right in the Gumballs

Hi everyone!

Here look at that, it's July already! How the heck did that happen??? lol At the end of the month I'm off to Seattle to attend (and vend at) BlytheCon! Since I'll be selling my hats, I've been working on different cutesy things to decorate my table with and here is a project that I found online and it's incredibly easy (and cheap) to make! A gumball machine from a terra cotta pot and round bowl:
