Blog Hiatus

Pin It
Besides writer's block, it is the busiest time of the year.
Andrea and I have been super busy, more than normal!
Doesn't help we have done a show every other weekend.

And there are some great things in the works.
Like Zulily.
Yes, you read right.


Hopefully it will all work out.
But until I tell you all the details,
I am going to leave you with some pretties we have made.

My sweet Gabi...I love this photo!

Chevrons are hot, hot, hot right now!

This is a OOAK (one-of-a-kind) skirt made for Imani.

The above skirt went out to {52 Dresses} with Simply b Photos.

It has been a great holiday season and hopefully after things
slow down in the {SIG} workshop, I will be able to blog
more and have some cute tutorials up for ya!

Thanks for being patient and don't worry, we are still around!
Hope you all had a great Turkey Day!

Handprint Turkey Trivet Tutorial

Pin It

I'm not sure that I have actually put this out here on the blog,
but I also teach twice a week at my triplet's preschool.
It's fun and at times is inspiring.

I get to teach pre-k 3 and pre-k 4 twice a week.
One day is art, the other day is Spanish.
{i am originally from Argentina}

This past week for art, I made these super cute trivets with the students.
I thought it was cute enough to to share with you all.
Not only cute BUT it is super easy.

Seriously will only take you a few minutes to do most of the work.
The rest of the time is spent drying.
Let's get to it!

~ 5" x 5" Tile from anywhere you can find one (Home Depot, Lowe's)
~ Acrylic paint in the following colors...brown, red, orange, yellow, green
~ Paint brushes for each color
~ Sharpies (either fine point or regular) in red, brown, and black
~ Felt circles with adhesive on the bottom
~ Polyurethane or shellac spray

Before you get the paint ready, make sure to write the name and year.
OR, if your child is old enough, they can write it themselves.
I used cute dot letters since these are preschoolers.
I also go ahead and put the felt circles on each of the
four corners on the back side of the trivet.

Pour your paint out on to the surface of your choice.
Since I was dealing with 5 classes and 45 students,
I gave each color its own for obvious reasons.

I had each student come up to me and I painted
their palm and thumb brown and each finger a different color.
I guided their hand to the tile and pressed slowly in to it.

Came out super cute!

After the acrylic dries, it is time to add the "features".
I added an eye (in black Sharpie),
a beak and wattle (in red Sharpie), and
2 feet (in brown Sharpie).

Please forgive the absence of a photo but then next thing
you do is seal your tile by spraying it with polyurethane or shellac spray.

And you are finished!
You have the cutest turkey trivets around.
Don't just make one.
Make some for the grandparents.
You know they will use them for EVERY.SINGLE.THANKSGIVING.

And there you have it...the cutest Handprint Turkey Trivets around!

Winner of the OOAK Christmas Skirt

Pin It
Before I even get to the name,
I want to take two seconds of your time...
please, please, please go out and vote.

There are so many political races out there that are so close.
This does include the Presidential race but even more importantly
your local races for Representatives in your state.

Every vote counts!

Now for the good stuff.
First, let me tease you with a few of the skirts I have been able to make.

I really love them all!!!
I'll tell you...OOAKs are fun to make.
Honestly, I don't know how any OOAK piece will turn out
until I am completely finished which I love.

I just let the fabric talk to me.
And I don't follow any type of "pattern".
I just use a basic length and waist for the skirt.

The rest happens as I am cutting.
Just like the name suggests...these are one-of-a-kind pieces.
No replicating exactly.

Some fabrics I have plenty of,
others are just scraps that I incorporate.
But I think that is the charm of the OOAKs, don't you?

Anywho, I'm sure you want to know the winner!
