Long time, no see ( or post, as the case may be)...

Life has been busy as usual as it for everyone! Job hunts, working towards adopting, and so much more  takes over but as creativity is the thing that fulfills me and makes me feel most alive and zen, I have been creating all along. So it's time to finally share some of what I've been working on!

Most of my creativity has involved using my Silhouette Cameo - since getting this little beauty a few months back I've had all kinds of fun experimenting with everything this marvelous machine can do. One of the main selling points was it's ability to cut fabric. As a fabric designer and one who loves to design quilts with appliqué elements, this was huge for me! And it does all sorts of amazing things too - paper crafting, glass etching, rhinestone patterns, and the list goes on and on. I love using the designs available throughout the online store but as a designer, I design most of what I create myself which is possible if you upgrade to the Designer edition of their software.

My burlap table runner stenciled with a gothic font thanks to the Silhouette. ( A slightly more labor intensive project but so worth it - I love it!) 

A hobo bag jazzed up with stenciling and fabric leaves both crated with the Silhouette.
