So after three weeks of physical therapy, my sprained wrist/hand is sort of usable again. Needless to say, I can't wait until I can get back to work. I have a bunch of projects piling up on me, not to mention all the things I need to get done for my wedding. Only 108 days to go!

This is Kaylee! I believe I have shown you this design before, but this particular pair turned out so charming that I just had to share them. (Yes, they are named after the character from Firefly.) They are made with steely blue organza and are detailed with black and super sparkly silver paint. The antennae are covered with black ribbon and tipped with crystals and the back is decorated with a matching blue flower and black goose feathers. The whole effect is elegantly gothic!

Baby Blue Jays

These darling feather wings were a custom order for a photographer in Canada. I had an absolute blast painting all the feathers to look like a real blue jay. You'd never guess it, but all of the feathers started out powder blue.
These are my first baby angels, scaled down in size for infants.
