I just finished this JOY decoration. I turned my wreath into the ‘O’ and then I made a ‘J’ and a ‘Y.’ Not too shabby I say. It isn’t perfect, but I like it a lot! Yay!

Here are some new pillows I’ve been working on. I’m going to be selling on consignment at In Other Words in Portland, Oregon. I’m pretty excited about it! The first one is Henry Miller Magic cat with red stripes. The second one is Judy the Utie(rus) with minis on the back. The third one is a pillow of Angelica Kauffman and Mary Moser having tea.

Pink Piggy Pillow!

I had this cute fabric with pigs on it, and I was just itching to use it in some way, so I decided to make a pink piggy pillow. BTW, you can find this supercute pig fabric at Hawthorne Threads. Here is the link: http://www.hawthornethreads.com/fabric/designer/david_walker/get_together/pig_toss_in_pink. It looks much cuter in person and is super soft and comfy too! Anyway, I started out with the pig shape face and hand-stitched the pig. I added a little bit of fluff to the feet and ears and when I sewed the pig on the pillow I added a bit of fluff between the pillow and the pig face. I also put on the back pig butt and added some fluff in that too. And what piggy could be complete without a ribbon on his tail?!? I’m including some pics of the pig in process and the pics of the finished pillow. Click to enlarge. :)

Playing Kitty

Celia from “The Night Circus”

Chicken or Egg

Here is the second set of swatches that I got from Spoonflower.com. I liked the way the little girl (Celia) one turned out, except that it had a couple of holes in the black where I forgot to color in the image, so I’ve updated that and it should be fixed now. :) I think the playing kitty one is interesting, but I also uploaded another one to see what it would look like bigger. With this one it really becomes more about the pattern, which can be good for some projects! I think the little chicken turned out pretty cute too!!! :) Yay!

First Swatches From Spoonflower Received! Yay!

I got my first fabric swatches from Spoonflower.com today! It is so exciting to see my drawings translated into fabric! The colors are a bit different (as can be expected with printing issues), but overall, I think they are so cool! I’m going to really have to work on creating some fantastic fabric designs!!! :) hehe. I can’t wait to use my very own fabric in my projects!!! Thank you Spoonflower! And, by the way, here’s a plug for myself…if you want to buy any of my fabrics, you can get them on Spoonflower in my shop. Here is the link: http://www.spoonflower.com/profiles/kristinbell. I think I get 10% of the purchase price or something, but if you do buy any fabric, I’d love to know and would love to see anything you make with the fabric! Okay, plug over! :)

I just found this place called SPOONFLOWER on the internet and haven’t tried it yet, but it sounds so cool! You can upload your photos or designs and have your very own fabric printed!!! OMG it seems so great! You can also sell the fabric you design on their website and get 10% of the sale! Pretty cool! And as far as I can tell you maintain all copyrights to your material too! I can’t wait to try it out. I’ll post an update when I do try it to let you all know how it goes. :) Oh yah, and they also have tons of supercute fabrics that you can buy that other people have designed! :)

I don’t know if I’ll ever make it to France, but at least I can have a bit of France on my bed! hehe. I’ve had this cute French-themed duvet for years and just love it! I also have the French text pillow cases to remind me of my failed attempts at learning the French language! haha The cute cat was a gift from my friend! :) I got the French sheets and duvet from GarnetHill.com and the yellow dottie sheets from PBTeen.com. If you click the pic, you can see a closer view of the French pattern! :)

Decorating My Bed

A Different Outfit For My Bed

Hello Kitty-fied Lamp

Star Pendant

Zoey Yawning :)

I enjoy decorating my room now and then with new and/or old things. Here are some pics of the things I’ve been decorating. :) A lot of stuff I have gotten at PBTeen Teen Bedding, because I like the colorful stuff they have (even though I’m clearly not a teen!). I usually don’t pay full price for stuff, but wait for sales, and they do have some awesome sales sometimes! The other thing I enjoy about PBTeen is that most of the time their colors mix and match together, so even when you buy completely different things they go together! The rest of my room is a hot mess, but at least my bed is super-comfy! lol
