Rainbow Mountain Majesty

One of the biggest problems with artsy and crafty people is our tendency to be collectors of "junk" ( I mean, if you consider collections to be a problem). We're creative and hopeful, so it's only natural that we see potential in lots of everyday items. Personally, one of my largest "junk" collections is wood scraps. Scraps of all shapes, sizes, and wood varieties that I use to create many of the items I share on this blog and sell in my etsy shops. Recently my pile of small scraps has been overflowing. I wanted to share my wood scrap bounty with the world, so I created some colorful wooden magnets.

I'm especially fond of these geometric mountain ranges.

I also created some abstract rectangular magnets. It's pretty obvious that I'm into heavily saturated colors right now.

All of these hand cut and painted recycled wood magnets will be available in my online Tangents shop. I'm also bringing a few sets of them will me to the Summer Arts Bazaar this weekend.

Nautical Door Hangers

I've painted up some seaworthy door hangers that are sure to bring out the maritime adventurer in us all. Pirate ships, compasses, and anchors - oh my! I can't wait to debut these brand new decorations at the Summer Arts Bazaar this weekend!

Dive Helmets in Progress

I'm churning out a brand new batch of Dive Helmet pins. I feel very "20,000 leagues under the sea" when I'm wearing mine, and I wanted to give everyone at Handmade Omaha's Summer Arts Bazaar a chance to feel the same.

Tiny Turtle on a Log Slice

I've been painting a ridiculous amount lately, and it has been oh-so-fun. I'll be sure to post more pictures of some of my other creations later, but today I'm super excited about this tiny sea turtle.

I painted him on a log slice with an abstract background. I LOVE tiny things, and I like how cute he looks bubbling about. I'm planning on bringing him with me to the Modern Makers Summer Arts Bazaar this month, so, if you want, you can see him in person there!
