My first needle felted creature!

This is the first needle felted creature that I've made!
To be honest with you it wasn't easy at all!
Now I have a lot of respect for all the felt artists
especially Abigail of "Bird On Wire Studio", check out her blog for lots of felt lovelies!
My little Maneki Neko is so tiny!
Today is a public holiday is Ontario and some other parts of Canada!
Hope you have a great week friends :)

Fruit labels

I finally finished filling up my writing board with fruit labels!
Of course with the help of my parents and my lovely friend Montse :)
The labels with a toucan and the one with 3 papayas were sent
by my lovely friend Montse from Mexico :)
I couldn't find such exotic ones here in Toronto for sure!
I brought the ones with oranges (far left) from Tehran in my last trip to Iran.
Happy Friday friends!
Hope you have a great weekend and see you back on Monday!

Happy Valentine's Day

A little drawing I did on kraft paper with Micron pen and colored pencils.
9.5cm x 4.5cm

I printed the birdies on decal paper and transferred them onto Ikea cups.
They turned out so cute!
*You can buy the "Rub on decal paper" online, I bought them from Ebay :)

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

How cold is your city?

Today Toronto is so sunny and beautiful and looking at the sky makes me
want to go for a walk.
But when I check the weather I change my mind!
So cold!!!...but I shouldn't give up...right? ;)

Snail 12/33

Snail 12 out of 33
I've painted it with acrylic colors.
* Inspired by the great wave painting by Hokusai *
~ Side view ~
I'm going to hang this shadow box in our living room.
I've made the cherry blossoms from polymer clay and attached
them to a natural branch with E6000 glue.
