A crazy busy season has passed! Next year I start WAY sooner, that's for sure. (Which means I should probably be starting the SPRING AND SUMMER Market stuff NOW. ) But I can't think of that just yet... Here are a few of the things that came out of Little Scotia Studio and Gallery for Christmas/Yule celebrations.
These gloves I made for my daughters. They each got a long sleeved pair, and a short pair, decked out with lace, crocheted flowers, buttons, fun stuff!
I made gift certificate cards for people who came through and wanted to buy Tarot Reading certificates for people on their Christmas list.
These ornaments were store bought, but I was asked to embroider on them. There were 13 of them. It was an honour to be asked to do them :)
There were 5 monkeys like these - all hand made, with felt hearts or ovals, and the names of the recipients on them.
And a jewellery box was commissioned this year!
Elvis Monkey was commissioned - he was a labour of love! You can't quite see his swirly hair in this - And his belt buckle is a painted huge button, with a jewel glued on.
This painting was a commissioned piece that I didn't think I was going to finish in time. It wasn't to be given as a gift, the person who got it was keeping it for themselves, but I really wanted to have it done before Christmas holiday. I had the HARDEST time getting the circle ROUND, but finally figured it out, and after that it finished up VERY quickly. This is a large canvas, with a value of $350.
So, today has been a lazy day. The first day I've really had to get some of the images off the camera that I've been taking all month, and a moment to write a few words about it.
I'll be going into the studio tomorrow, but only from Noon till 1pm. I expect I'll have some cleaning up to do!!!
