New Shop!

I opened up another shop today for my artwork. I saw someone else's art on this site, and decided to give it a try. I can make iphone & ipad cases here with my artwork on them, so this is a nice idea given they are super-popular. I can do it on etsy too, but with a lot more work on my end. With this new shop, I don't have to do anything except upload the image folks are interested in. I don't even have to go to the PO, they do it all for me, I just collect a little stipend. Nice! So I uploaded one to give it a try & paid the money to become verified. DONE! These are the projects I really like! With a baby in tow & two bigger boys & dogs to walk.. very helpful to have small projects taken care of so quickly. Now if only Society 6 would do my grocery shopping for me. It's neverending!

Shop here! or here on XOXO Heather :)

Experiment Time

I've been doing this "knitting" experiment with a vegan yarn of mine. I purchased the vegan yarn to make a baby blanket for Fiona & didn't really like the way it came out. So I thought I'd take the French Knitter by Clover & turn the yarn into a cord & then knit that into a blanket.

Now I'm not going to knit it on this loom, this was just a test or whatever. Just to see that it does indeed work. I have a few more questions to figure out, first, before going whole hog with it. Like once the blanket is done, I'm going to need to stop knitting it at some point & tie it off. If I just snip it, it will unravel or has the potential to. I think what I am going to do is have to knit it as far as I can & then knit it back into the blanket with the excess. But with the "Yarn" being so thick this will be interesting. Hopefully not a huge waste of my time. I think I am either going to make knitting needles for it & or possibly create a loom of some kind for it to be loomed on. I do like the way the loom knit looks, and it does look good even at this size of "yarn". If this works out, I can see endless possibilities.. bedroom blankets, couch blankets, pillow cases.. and on & on. --Heather :)

For Boston!

For Boston

Friday the 19th was freaking scary. I've got many many many family members & friends in the Boston area. None in that town, but still. Friday was freaking scary. SO glad it's over. --Heather :)
