Merida Segment 1Happy Sunday everyone!Merida Segment 1 by Mattsma
Today we embark on the wonderful adventure of stitching the first in the Mucha Princesses Series, which are the patterns that were designed by pinkythepink and are now for sale over at MakeitPink on Etsy. The patterns are sold individually or as a set. These are complicated patterns and not for the feint of heart. Guaranteed to test your skill level! There are only a limited number being sold and once they are sold out, there will be no more, PLEASE, pick your princess!
The original artist, Hannah Alexander, has given permission for pinkythepink to create patterns from three of her princess, and I'm starting with Merida. If you look through Hannah's gallery, you'll actually st
DevMEET in Den Haag - 8 augustusHoi allemaal,DevMEET in Den Haag - 8 augustus by Nederlanders
thomasVanDijk organiseert op zaterdag 8 augustus een devMEET in Den Haag:
"Laat even weten als je wilt komen, stuur een note of reageer hieronder. Zo kan ik je op de hoogte houden van alle plannen!
We zullen bij elkaar komen op Den Haag Centraal, waarna we een plekje in de stad op zoeken om te gaan zitten. Daar zullen we spelletjes doen (met leuke prijzen), tekeningen met elkaar uitwisselen, picknicken, etc.
Ik hoop je op 8 augustus te kunnen ontmoeten!"
Veel plezier alvast!
Geniet van het mooie weer!
Things I like or think are really cool I set it to random so that every artwork stands a chance of being seen rather than just the ones I added most recently. Every one of them deserves to be seen more than once on my profile sta.sh/01h7rgcjy5c1
I can honestly say that this is all Mattsma's fault for inspiring us to do this as she started with the first of them and then I made the second one and then it snowballed... This is the full army of teacups, in order of creation, as of the time of writing - I will try to keep it more or less up to date.
What to tell about myself... I'm cheerful and creative - when I'm in the right mood I create more than I can keep up with so it's always a challenge to finish what I start as I have so many idea's. I don't let stuff like not knowing how to do something stop me from actually doing it - I may not do it "right" in the end but I do get it done!
I'm a mother of 2 boys who are (fortunately) not yet teenagers but are a pair of monkeys who keep me on my toes
About saying thanks to favs etc.
I had to make a choice between spending a load of time thanking people for favouriting my art - which always brings a smile to my face and a warm fuzzy feeling in my heart - or making more art.
I chose to stop thanking people personally for the favourites but I do still give everyone who favourites me for the first time a llama badge as a little thank you for doing so I hope that nobody feels less appreciated for it but well.. someone stole my time machine If you need more inspiration as to why I chose this watch this: player.vimeo.com/video/4237276… It's good advice for anyone who creates art
Do I sell my work?
Sometimes - Not everything I make is for sale but I don't usually mark anything as "for sale" so If you are interested in something I've made feel free to note me. I only accept reasonable offers as making things by hand takes time and materials cost real money, so expect to pay more for a one off item than you would for that mass produced knick-knack you saw in a shop.
