New mixed media...and leotards?!?

I have a couple new mixed media pieces to show off. These are the first pieces I've done in MONTHS!

The Snowmakers, 5"x7"

Eyeglasses, 8"x20"

As you may or may not know...I have a short attention span. I tend to pour my whole heart and soul into something (soldered jewelry, art, sewing, cooking)...for about 5 minutes, then I'm ready to move on to the next thing :)

So, one of my latest passions is making gymnastics leotards for my girls. I've made them each so many leotards, that I opened a new etsy shop as an outlet. It all began one day about a year ago...the girls needed new leos and I didn't want to pay $30+ for a leo they would grow out of in 6 I did a little research (a LOT of research actually). I discovered several patterns that had positive reviews, read up on some sewing tips for spandex fabrics, bought some fabric, and the rest is history.

If you're looking for a leo for your little lady, visit my etsy shop here and check out leos. I have tons of fabrics to choose from, so if you don't see anything you like, I can work with you to create a custom leo. Your little lady will stand out in the gym with a custom leo.

Have a great week!
