Embroidery Experimentation

I have been seeing lots of inspiring little embroidery things online and decided to give it a shot by myself.  First I had a go with some freehand writing and other little embellishments on this little motivator I made.  It turned out ok, I think I want to make it again but with different colors and fabrics and stuff.


It seems too dark to me.  After realizing I pretty much only had 8 colors of embroidery floss which mostly consisted of hot pink, black, bright greens and a few browns, I decided to go to the store and build a small library of colors to work with in the future.  It was fun picking out some colors and sorting them into this handy container.


And I was so excited about all my new floss that I had to make something right away.  I found a cool image of a machine embroidered mandala online and decided to make one of my own.  This is the mandala in the works with all my floss too…


…And here is the finished mandala :)


New Camera!

I finally broke down and bought the Digital SLR I have always been wanting!  It is a Canon EOS Rebel T1i and it came with a EF-S 18-55mm zoom lens.  It is a 15.1 megapixel camera…’ 10.1 more than my little P&S! The technical quality of my future photos will be awesome, now its time to work on the artistic and photographic quality :)  Here is a quick pic.

This will be the last photo taken with my little P&S 5.0 Megapixel Olympus D-630

Valentines Day 2009!

I was sitting at work about to take my lunch break.  I got an IM from Steve telling me not to come by his desk unless I told him ahead of time.  Hmm, what was he up to…It’s a day before Valentines day…he must be doing something!  I immediately started thinking…crap I haven’t really gotten anything for him yet.  We had already made plans for the Aquarium…So I decided to draw him up a card in photoshop!  Its not a traditional Valentines card in the least.  In fact it is a comic!  We exchanged ‘cards’ later that evening and this is what we came up with.  I love having an artist for a boyfriend!

The valentine that Steve gave me!

The valentine I gave Steve!

♥ Happy Valentines Day ♥
