Something odd has taken over

Something odd has taken me over. Here are some drawings that I've been working on. I have no explanation.

I have been to the Great Wall

I received the best picture in my email the other day.... my little birdie ring in front of The Great Wall of China! I love this picture! It is so fun to think that things that I make are going to all different parts of this planet.
The woman behind the ring and fabulous picture is Allie of Alliebeans. I met Allie at Bazaar Bizarre and immediately fell in love with her creations. Her craftsmanship is impeccable. I bought myself a little iPhone pocket with hedgehogs on it. It's adorable. This is a picture of another great one - Le Cactus Francais.

I made some other purchases too! A great coat rack from Tiny Sparks Design. This isn't exactly the one I bought. Mine had little red houses with shadows on it. I LOVE it! Can't wait to move into our new place so I can hang it up. You really have to see his work in person. The quality is flawless.

And finally I bought my Christmas present for me (from Dave). This sculpture that you may remember me writing about many months ago by Double Parlour. What a surprise to walk down the aisle and see the sculpture that I have been obsessing over for so long. I totally made a fool of myself to the artist telling her how she's like a celebrity to me.

I will be sharing some more great purchases later, in case you are interested.

I hear wedding bells.....

I'm so excited to share this with everyone. I worked with the MOST lovely couple to design and make a wedding ring. This was a big deal for me because it was in platinum and used 4.6 carats of diamonds. Holy smokes!! I can't tell you how nervous I was carrying around this amazing ring (if I do say so myself).

So congrats to Richard and Alison. Did I mention how sweet they are? I even got a Christmas card from them.
