Finally, an Update!

Yikes! It's been nearly five months since my last blog post! I apologize. It was a vicious circle - I got too busy to blog, then I realized there was a lot I wanted to blog about, so the list of things I wanted to include in my post got longer, then I realized I didn't have time for it, then I got to busy to blog; repeat. Eeek! I won't let that happen again. Lol.

Let's see, where did I leave off? Pics of the autumn LARP and some fun wedding hair clips. What have I been up to since then, you ask? Well, the two major projects that I am most proud of are:
*Another set of LARP masks, with an alien monster theme this time!
*A set of 18 headbands and 12 clips for a dance troupe in Italy!

So of course, here are the pictures!

My husband is modeling one of the masks in the first two photos. The last one is of the entire set - as you can see, they are each unique and one of a kind. I spent a long time hand painting them so the snakeskin fabric stood out, so each wrinkle was accentuated, and every mandible had the right texture. It was my first experience using this kind of medium, and I have to say I'm proud of how they turned out! I hope for the chance to do more in the future!

Now for the dance troupe's accessories.

Each autumn leaf clip was unique, and most of the headbands were unique as well, with just a few repeats; but even the repeats were set up slightly different from each other. The summer berry theme was my favorite to work with!

If I get any photos of these pieces in action from my customers, I will be sure to share! In the meantime, check out my newest store: WePay Store: Natura Pluma Designs. Using WePay, there are less fees, and you don't have to be a member to make a purchase. I am looking at setting up an Artfire store as well. I feel it will help to have options other than Etsy; though as of right now, you can still check out my Etsy store, Natura Pluma Designs for some great clearance-priced deals! I am still looking to clear out my inventory in preparation for a move, so help me out and get a great deal at the same time! :)

Just for fun, check out the other blog I created: a recipe blog called Veggies vs Bacon where I show you step by step some tasty, healthy recipes of my own design, and heart-cloggingly delicious recipes my husband has tried out.

Thanks for reading, and I will definitely be back with updates much sooner!
