Giddy up! It’s officially The Year of the Horse

Celebrating Chinese New Year with a trio of galloping gold horses wearing symbols of good fortune and prosperity, a red lantern to light their path. The branch represents the first of the Five Chinese Elements wood- the beginning of life and springtime.

Pineapple Kitty


I had been hanging on to this sketch for quite some time until I found just the right materials to make a plush pineapple kitty!


I didn’t want to make the usual markings on the pineapple and was really excited when I found this fabric. The floral pattern and soft shade of yellow reminds me of a vintage Hawaiian print.


The kitty is made from soft Sherpa. I used leather buttons for the eyes and a chocolate brown colored ribbon for its smile.


Looking snug and cozy inside the pineapple. I made sure to make an opening for its tail to poke through too.

Pysanky Patterned Eggs

One of the perks of having a late March birthday is that I receive lots of Easter themed gifts. This year I was introduced to the style and patterns of Pysanky. My dear friend in Canada sent me these metallic printed foils for decorating my Easter eggs. Thank you Charlene!

1/2 dozen Pysanky

Pysanky is a Ukranian Easter egg that is decorated using a wax-resist method using traditional folk motifs. Not only are the eggs colorful and have an intricate design, the colors and patterns all have special meaning.

Love Bird Pysanky

The color green symbolizes spring, growth, and new hope. The dots suggests the stars or constellations.

Violet Bird Pysanky

Birds are a symbol of fertility and fulfillment of wishes.

Floral Pysanky

Red is the color for passion, fire, and spiritual awakening. Roses and flowers represent love, caring and friendship.

Hiss the Year of the Snake

My tribute to the Year of the Snake: fresh flowers for prosperity, envelopes filled with lucky money, and my cloisonne fish earrings for a splash of red and abundance.

Yellow Cherry CNY

Coiffed and Feathered

I needed to make something to wear to a woodland themed costume party. I’m hoping my feathery headband adorned with a baby owl will be fancy enough.
