Vagabond Adventures

Spring is here and so is a fabulous new collaboration kit at MischiefCircus.com!  
As you know, a few times a year the designers at Mischief Circus get together and work on the same theme at the same time.  This collaboration is full of delicious traveling bits and pieces in all sorts of styles.  Here is my Vagabond Adventures kit . . . (pix below are linked to the shoppe)

Another Wispy Pieces kit . . . 
Just last week, I released my 2nd Wispy Pieces kit.  It's a great add on kit to any other kits you might already own.  The wispy pieces add a fun funky edge!

Taking a little time off . . .
. . . maybe.  I intend to do this more than I actually do this.  But, I'm going to attempt to take a week or so off from kit making and refill the inspiration tanks and work on some other projects and other behind the scenes stuff.  Don't go far though . . . the next kit is always right around the corner!

1 new kit and 1 REALLY new kit

I am a kit making factory lately!  
I have been working, working, working  . . . no particular reason, maybe making up for a slow last year.   But, I have 2 new kits out and one of them was a big leap for me to take.

Wispy Pieces 1
. . . is the first in a new series (Wispy Pieces 2 is coming out this Monday).  The kit name is the explanation . . . wispy little parts and pieces you can add easily to work to create an edgy funky character or add some color/pattern to a background.  It's a whole new concept I'm trying out and hope others enjoy it as much as I will.

Pictures below are linked to my shoppe.

Whatnot No. 1

Hello everyone!

New Kit . . . 
I have a new kit in the shoppe at MischiefCircus.com!  This new kit is the first in a new series for 2015 . . . Whatnot No.1 is in the shoppe and on sale for a limited time! It's my new favorite kit I think. You can find it here: http://www.mischiefcircus.com/shop/product.php?productid=22748&cat&page

Kit trivia . . . my new old dollhouse (more about that later) that I just picked up at a flea market a couple of weeks ago makes its first appearance in this kit (pre-remodel). Two of the bodies in this kit come from my own family (one of my mom who I miss so dearly) and it makes me happy to see them here.

Also included in the kit along with 7 printable jpg collage sheets . . .

Dollhouse
I have something new I'm working on!  Well, new in a tangible sense.   I have been fascinated and enthralled with dollhouses and miniature everything for many years.  Actually, I've been fascinated with large things too.  Just ask my family about all of the "World's Largest" and "World's Smallest" things I've dragged them to see.   But a dollhouse in particular is somewhere I can utilize that intoxicating suspension of disbelief and nearly find myself in an out of body experience.  I'm sure psychologically this all has something to do with my deep rooted struggles to control my environment, but we won't focus on that. 

I started building my own dollhouse from scratch last spring but after a lot of gusto to get it started, it gathered dust on shelves before I could get myself to actually put all of the pieces together and see if it would collapse or stay in one piece.  A couple of weeks ago, I just happened to run across an already built dollhouse at a flea market.  The price was right and the dream to have a dollhouse was revived.  

Now, this new little big dollhouse of mine needs lots of work.  And yes, I did mean to say little big as this may be a dollhouse but it's huge.   I think it was built with great care at one point, but then "remodeled" by a young child with some rather interesting painting methods and things taped here and there and parts removed and parts smashed and then probably left outside in the weather a little more than it should have been.   We gutted the whole thing a couple of weeks ago and last weekend cut new wood for the foundation and some other places that needed repair.   Now it is awaiting it's new paint job inside and out.  Doors have to be fitted as the old ones were either missing or broken.  New "glass" needs to be put in all of the windows.  New trim needs to be fitted around the bay windows and along the roof line.   Everything needs to be sanded down and repainted.

I'll be sharing a 2nd blog with you all here soon, if you want to follow the tale of "Tiny Tumble Fish".

How it gets away from me . . .

. . .  I don't know.  I can't believe I'm not in some kind of time vacuum sometimes.  And I can't believe it's been a month since I've posted here.   I've not been good about anything online for the last month or so and I'm not really sure why or what I've been doing with my time . . . thus the time vacuum theory sounds pretty good.

Well, I have been working a lot so far this year but caught up in the behind the scenes and not out in the open as much as I usually am.  I've had my nose too close to the proverbial grindstone me thinks.  No, nothing more exciting than extracting and coloring images has had me sidetracked, but I can't even seem to work at that as fast as my inner muses would like to churn things out so they can move onto the next thing.

For now, I'll share my latest kit . . .  
Va Va Voom is on sale for a limited time. If you perhaps remember my old Ooo La La kit, this is its revamped replacement with over 100 NEW images added. The old images were brightened up and recolored but there's enough new images to make it a whole new kit on its own. You can find it HERE and linked through the previews below.

In other news, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!  I hope you and your family had a wonderful Holiday Season and are embracing the excitement and adventure of a fresh year ahead.  I hope to work more than ever this year and dip my toes into some variations of being creative and making things.  We'll see what unfolds.   

In the meantime . . .  I am addicted . . . yes, ADDICTED . . . to Pinterest.  It gives me so much inspiration and I learn so much every time I pop in.   I'm in there at least once a day most days and it is my reward and happy place when I meet my goals for the day.   If you ever want to swing by or follow me there, you can find my boards HERE.

And before I go . . .  in case a visit to Pinterest has you crafting up some fabulous Valentine's Day goodies, all of my older Valentine's Day related kits are on sale . . . 40% off!
