A-Wedding We Will Go

Sunday, May 31st, 2009

So, recently I got married (eloped on Valentine’s Day in Las Vegas with the oft-mentioned-on-here Eric Dohnert!) and when we came back and told everyone, it became apparent that we weren’t going to get away without having another ceremony for family and friends. This was fine by us, as we relished the opportunity to put on a big, artsy show, and among other handmade things that were used for the wedding, Eric designed my bridal headpiece and I made it. I’m showing it from the front and the back, so you can see the elaborate veil thing I attached to it. I wore it all evening and it was a big hit!

Putting The ‘Fun’ In Funeral

Sunday, February 22nd, 2009

One of my best friends is studying to become a mortician, and she needed ‘help’ (aka, I did the whole thing) on a sculpture of a head that was supposed to be of someone older, so as to practice facial reconstruction. She sent me some pictures of her father (who is not dead, but does qualify as ‘older’), and so I sculpted him. Really quickly. It came out pretty well, I think!

Ribbon Doilies

Friday, February 20th, 2009

After idly doing a little of this at a party with some stray ribbon, I decided the idea had some merit, and expanded upon it when I got home. The result so far is three ribbon doilies: one meant to cradle a bowl, one as a placemat, and the other as a coaster!

Halloween 2008

Friday, October 31st, 2008

Installment 2 in our annual tradition of stretching ourselves too thin, Eric Dohnert and I once again created Halloween costumes, this time inspired from his sketches. We were some Visiting Alien Dignitaries.

Knit K-9

Monday, June 30th, 2008

In my quest to knit every character from Doctor Who, this time I made a knit K-9. He was fun to work on, since it’s unusual to do very angular stuffed toys in a knit medium.
