Awesome Interiors

...I found these great images on a cool tumblr site I just discovered.  It is TheManShop--very cool check it out.  It is the inspirations of creative genius Sean Woolsey.

Hand-made greeting cards

...I've decided to do a batch of hand-made greeting cards.  After making a birthday card for my wife (see below), I just could not stop the process.  It is addictive!  I am basically creating generic scenes with a collage of different materials.  This batch is made from pages of an old book.  There will also be some sewing involved, etc...

Stationary with "cut-out" antler--of course...

Felted Placemats

...just a little bit of wool, a washing machine and a pillow case, and there you have it.  Felted placemats. I love the simplicity of the "granny square" pattern--I also love the way it felts.  You can still see the general construction of the pattern after the felting process.  And, once felted they are more durable and absorbent.  Only 9 more to go for my set of 12.

Urban Renewal Project

I have stumbled upon some great found material for a piece to be part of my Urban Renewal collection.  The product is plastic twine that is used to secure large round hay bails.  I am in the process of working the twine into separate sections to be rolled into balls to make it easier to use--to crochet into floral forms and attached to a found piece of masonite peg board (which I still have to "find").  I would love it if the piece of peg board would come from an old appliance, such as a television or large stereo cabinet......more once I get it in the works.

Inspirational Interiors

I am amazed at how the use of negative space and easy neutral color can produce such incredible results.  Not to mention the simplicity of the materials such as concrete and wide plank floors.  (via konfettiform blog)
