Felt Fortune Cookies

I discovered it was not purely my lack of sewing prowess that resulted in a disastrous first attempt at these fortune cookies - it was more my lack of ability to cut out a perfect circle with blunt scissors! A cheap circle cutter later and I'm VERY happy with my next three attempts! :D

Felt and thread

However, I am very wary of embroidering tiny English fortunes on the slips ...

Movie Tag Team - "Babe"

When I started my new job (oh so many months ago now ... or so it feels) I joined the Unit 16 forum that a lot of the folks at the studio were already a part of. One of the activities on that thar forum is a "Movie Tag Team" where one posts a character from a movie of their choice and the next in line interprets that into an image. (Or perhaps ya'll should just go check out the thread).

My turn finally came up and I got "Babe" which I have never actually watched.
Thusly this occurred:

Alias Sketchbook and Photoshop.

It's been a while since I had some Photoshop fun ... it's all Flash, Flash, Flash at work (or CRASH CRASH CRASH if we're going to be literal ... grrrr ...)

Beryl and her Moopsie Companion

Although her dear partner Bruce left her all alone, Beryl understood that sometimes the world has bigger plans for us and our loved ones. Therefore, she found a matching pet Moopsie to fill the hole left in her heart.

Wool, beads and a button!

Now then: Less typing ... more creating ...
