Just Like That, I am Back

 If I said I was back, would you believe me? Blogging is complicated, and there are so many "get rich quick" blogging schemes that make it look like you are a lost cause if you are not currently earning money blogging. And why are you even blogging if you don't have multiple streams of income and entertainment. If you don't have a brand? I do have this website, but I do not have Instagram, Twitter, TikTok (you don't want to see me dance), or whatever is next.  Heck, I haven't even updated this since before the pandemic. So why am I here, writing about being back and then, probably ghosting for another two years? Life has been rough. It's been painful and overwhelming.

Eric Carle for Pottery Barn Knock-Off

Yeah I would have gone home for sure with this one, but it was fun to try and work with some techniques I have never even thought of trying....

Pottery Barn Kids is offering this lovely licensed print selection:


My daughters room has a beautiful butterfly theme. Now I am not an artist by any stretch of the imagination. I wanted to try and draw the butterfly, but instead I decided to do a mixed media piece for my daughters room.

It is simple enough and she loves the jewels on the wings.  Best part it might not look like Eric Carle, but it does resemble his style and cost a lot less than the $109 picture at Pottery Barn.


Thanks for looking!

Super cute and perfect for a little girl's room! Thanks for sharing.
I love your butterfly! The different textures work well. How did you do the pink? Is it paint or fabric?

It is all fabric and yarn with a few jewels thrown in. I love fabric collages, and have a friend who does awesom work. I wanted to try one myself, and let me tell you the time and talent they take is something I am envious of. I just don't have it (aka it looks better on film then in person).
