very late Halloween photos...

Erica and I dressed up as Salt N Pepa for Halloween this year. I made the jackets (turned out so fly!) and we choreographed dance moves. It was hot... we didn't perform any choreographed moves due to no DJs had ANY S-N-P... (um, can you really call yrself a DJ if you don't at least have 'Push It'?) We'll be back as S-N-P sometime in the future. Black unitards, boots and oversized satin jackets is the most comfy costume ever. I pretty much want to wear my unitard all the time; my jacket too, but out of context, it's kind of much. and here is Chris... the hamster. I made his fuzzy-wuzzy suit, but not the hood. He wanted to find an extra-large rodent water bottle to carry around, but couldn't find one. Actually, what he REALLY wanted was a big clear ball to roll around in. That didn't happen either. shucks. All photos taken by Teafly. (I am just now posting photos, because I just snagged them from Teafly's Picasa album. Check her blog Support an Artist )


Striped baby sweater

This is my friend Sheareen with Sailor, modeling the baby sweater I made for Sheareen's baby who is due at the end of January. The hood is a bit small (well, on Sailor it's small; hopefully on a newborn it will be just right), but I like the overall fit of the hoodie. I made it from a knit top I had - thought this was a better use of the fabric. Sheareen and I had a chat about zippered sweaters, and how they bug us because the little tab pokes the baby's neck - so I came up with an alternative. Buttons are a bit taboo with baby clothing, but I figure since it's for a little peanut, she won't be yanking or chewing on the buttons for a few months, and by then it won't fit. Plus I kind of hate velcro. Gotta get more snaps.


Roller Derby!!!

I am no longer a Roller Derby virgin. Tonight there was a Renegade Rollergirls bout between the Radar Lovers and the Skull Rollers. Radar Lovers kicked ASS and won their first bout ever! and I would like to think it had something to do with the uniform skirts I made for them: The girls looked so good! Neon green blurs around the rink. Sally ScumF*ck ... aka Lisa, wife of Sailor's Godfather, Spencer. Sailor had fun too - he was entranced by all the rollers. I was in awe of the fights! So crazy how many fights broke out. Ladies just pushing, tripping, smacking each other. bOnkers. Anyway, we had a fantastic time. Chances are we will be at the next bout.


Window at Treefort

This is the window at Treefort which I made the stockings for. Astacia and I decided on the yellow and white theme, and I threw in blue for good measure. We both love the way it turned out - in fact, I think it's the coolest window in downtown Bend.

Baby Food!

I made a batch of yummy baby food, for my sweet little man. Sweet potato & butternut squash combo and beet & spinach combo. Its so yummy, that whatever he doesn't finish, I finish and always want more. Satisfied.


Custom stockings in progress...

These are stockings I am making for a family in Long Beach, CA. I won a bid on Etsy. You can check my Etsy shop here.



If you are walking in downtown Bend, past TREEFORT (the coolest kids store ever) you will see these stockings in the window.
