So I am having a 20% OFF SALE of everything in my shop! The coupon code is posted on my business facebook page at Needles And Pins
So I have received a few custom orders I thought you guys may enjoy seeing. First off is a recreate of an old piece I have done, Anchorman quote!
Second is a piece with a quote from the movie Empire Records! So if you don’t get the reference that maybe because you have never seen the movie, check it out.. definitely a cult classic!
Tonight I cooked dinner for me and my boyfriend. I am trying to be more proactive about using fresh ingredients in my cooking. It is true, once you start the culinary program you will see food in such a different light. So tonight I decided to make jambalaya from scratch.. I found a recipe online and followed it, maybe added a little extra spices.. and it still wasn’t spicy enough for me! But aside from that it turned out nicely, but I would hardly compare it to the jambalaya I have had in New Orleans. Here are some pictures of me preparing and the finished product 🙂
“Please make me a bird, so I can fly far, far away..” I finally finished up the newest embroidery to my collection of tattoo flash on my etsy shop! You might have caught a couple of “in-progress” pictures so I thought I would share my finished pictures 🙂
Lately I have been adding lots of new piece in the shop that I have never stitched before. It feels amazing to be designing little cross-stitches again. I feel I may retire a few so I can truly enjoy doing more new pieces. Here are a few new listings I had added to the shop, of course I also offer pdf patterns for those who like to stitch and enjoy my sense of humor. ha
I pick up embroidery here and there in between the cross-stitch. It is a nice break from the blocks and I really enjoy the artistic freedom that comes with it. This year I made it a goal to get back into it a little and I really feel I set a goal I accomplished this year! I have received a lot of compliments for the pieces I stitched this year and it just encourages me to stitch more and more.
So here is my newest! Artwork by Don Chuck Carvalho, super talented guy.. please don’t steal the art!
My friend James posted a really neato blog today featuring an embroidery I did for a friend earlier this year. His site is super cool if you are into ‘Star Wars’ as I am! Go check out hanstitchedfirst.com
A blog, a website, both? Honestly I had a blog that was somewhat successful, by my standards, on blogspot/blogger but due to someone hacking my old gmail account and changing the password it seems it is forever lost. I am destined once again to start all over, again, and that idea seems tedious but I miss having one location to share everything. Lately I have been feeling very stretched between facebook, twitter, tumblr, etc.. I am hoping that this can be my new home, eventually.. so please stay tuned for big changes! 😀
