Hello Spring

After moving out of the shop and still unpacking from our move, Sow’s Ear Studio hasn’t had much time to say “hello”. With Spring here and watching television and still unpacking this is one of my favorite Sherwin Paints commercials. Simply click on the button and enjoy this lovely safari commercial. When we’re all done with unpacking, we’ll let you know.



Labor Day Weekend 2014. Bolton Landing, New York. This is my favorite time of the year when all the flowers are in bloom, fresh colors, and the sun is shining.  Now that spring has arrived, I’ve been thinking of new ideas for blankets, baby blankets, and home décor items.  For the last month, I’ve been working on handmade crochet items.  I’ve just wrapped up a new baby girl blanket that has spring colors of an Easter egg that was just dipped into dye and crocheted into something beautiful.  This handmade blanket is made with pink baby yarn, green baby yarn, and Lily Sugar n’ Cream yarn that has a mixture of white, purple, green, and blue colors.  Stripes is what makes a fashion statement with this lovely baby girl blanket.  Every blanket I create is folded into a square and has a complimentary polymer clay tag that goes with the blanket.  Whether it’s baby, throw, bedspread, this is a free gift from me to you.  This free gift can be used as a Christmas ornament or a window hanging.

For Spring And Summer

For Spring And SummerWith spring here, summer approaching, and Rosemary not able to work outside the shop, these lovely black and white glasses were painted by her awhile ago.  This is an example of what you can have done for your home or a gift.  If you have glasses to bring in, that’s great. If you need Rosemary to get some glasses for you, that’s alright to. Let Rosemary know what you’d like to have painted on your glasses and she’ll come up with some that suits your taste or a friend’s taste. If you have a wedding to attend, Rosemary will wrap these specially for the wedding.  Rosemary is currently at home recovering and will be working on new painted glasses for both Sow’s Ear Studio and Sow’s Ear Studio’s Etsy Shop soon. Lauren is making the changes so that Rosemary can have her own etsy shop.

Waiting For Some Color And Warm Weather

cb644-10660290_10153955475448696_9137487710070796511_nHello friends.Welcome to my new blog on blogger.  I’ve been going back and fourth deciding whether I should have a blog of my own, or write on my shop blog, Mixed Media Musings At Sow’s Ear Studio.  Well, I’ve decided to do both.  I decided to make this blog about things that I do besides being a crochet and polymer clay artist and talk about things that I find interesting and want to share.  All my crocheted items and creations will be shared on Mixed Media Musings At Sow’s Ear Studio.  This is what I like to call my fun blog.  See where my family and I travel, recipes, and all the things that I love in my life and want to write about.This is what I call my life blog.  No art, no business, just fun.  I’m also going to share some family photos and events that I attend to.  Please, have fun reading about my life and stop by my etsy shop, for fun and exciting items for living, wearing, and sharing.  With the nasty winter we had, I can’t wait to see some color, flowers, and birds chirping in the morning.
I’ve noticed in the last few years that we’ve had some horrible winters.  To the point where I don’t even want to go outside and do anything.  Life has been good since I decided to do my crocheting full time instead of jewelry, but I just want some warm weather and color.  This photograph was taken in September 2012 when my family and I went to Bolton Landing, New York and then we decided to have an early dinner at The Log Jam Restaurant in Lake George, New York.  While we we’re waiting for the restaurant to open for dinner, we stopped by some places around to window shop and next to the restaurant were these gorgous hydrangeas.  So I decided to take a quick picture of them before we went inside to eat.

Spring Is At 6:45p.m: Think Spring With Spring Like Colors

SpringWho’s ready for spring? I know I am.  This winter has been brutal with cold, snow, and feeling like a bear hibernating. I’ve been working with some spring colors to make some beautiful baby blankets, blankets, and much more.  This blanket will be revealed in the next blog. Fresh spring knit and crochet items will be uploaded to etsy at the end of this week.  Stay tuned.
