At Home Anthro Inspired Display Takes A Detour


It's been a considerable amount of time since I've last blogged, for the reason that I've worked a lot the last month. I mostly worked 6 days a week for about 2.5 weeks and then some scattered 3-4 days in another week. The other months I was just plain busy.

So having said that, I didn't have time to finish my Fall/Halloween display. Instead now I have taken a detour and am incorporating the leaves and giant roses I've made and have joined them with snowflakes to create a more Autumn Winter vibe.

Below is an a work in progress that has not been glued or anything. I just placed them together to get a feel for what I might want to position them as. I want to better position the leaves and then have some strings comes out at certain areas with some weaving involved. Then at the end of the strings I want to have some snowflakes or just something to finish off the ends.

Upon finishing up this blog post, I have actually outlined the giant rose petals with glitter! I'll show y'all more progress pictures later once I get more progress.

I'm excited!

And as far as clothes photoshoot goes, I made myself a Dia de Muertos outfit since I face painted for Day of the Dead Birmingham (Alabama). I did take pictures, or more rather my boyfriend did. I'll be uploading those pictures after this post.

See y'all later!

Autumn Leaves and Pumpkin Beginnings


As you can see below, I've busied myself with Autumn leaves! That's all that I made so far. I need to make a lot more actually. But I sure like how they turned out!

Here I am making the print for the pumpkins. I prototyped a baby pumpkin to see how it'd turn out. So far so good!

This week has truly been exciting. 

Aside from that, I've been cleaning my new apartment a lot. There's still a lot that needs to be sorted out and thrown away, to be sold, or to be donated. It's a slow and steady process. But I cannot wait to get everything organized and in order! I love to organize things! Also this would provide me room to put up my Fall display once everything is clean. 

Cannot wait for Fall weather. Though I hear this year will be a hot and humid Fall rather than a cool one. We'll see. I just love being able to bust out my cute sweaters and not feeling like I took a shower the moment I step outside for five minutes.

Alright, I shall see you soon!
