Getting crafty with little dude. The big "V" day is tomorrow...wish I was as excited about all of it as he is. After overflowing the brain on pinterest late last night (yay for the i-pad and insomnia) I knew I wanted to put my own spin on a DIY project, but most importantly I didn't want to get stuck making everything completely by myself...I'd say this was a half way achiever. I had a hole puncher, a fish counter, a tulle cutter, an auto grapher and of course a candy tester. Gotta make sure no littles are injured in tomorrows...

Photo credit: Eugene Olivia It just dawned on me couple days ago that 2013 was the year of the snake, Arlin actually brought home a coloring from school (as the Chinese new year begins in February instead of January)...I was born in the year of the snake. Thirty five years later I feel as I'm evolving quickly into a new being, setting forth some of my dormant ideas. Taking chances to step out of my comfort zone trying to not be afraid to share my art with the world (this is harder for me than most may think) I guess...

As for the vintage turquoise sewing machine, I have an idea for a custom welded stand for it (just need to visit a friend to discuss details) which will free up the front window area for another standing toddler mannequin..I scored...

I've been sitting on the secret of a lifetime (well, for me anyways) waiting for the perfect opportunity to spill the beans to blogland, facebook, etc ... Truth is there is no "perfect" time, place or way to SCREAM...... Baby Lux Design has a retail location in Old Ballard Seattle!!!! WoooHoooo!!!! Studio is all moved in and I've been steadfast building displays, a clothing rack and now working on a wood pallet wall for a backdrop to all the baby onesies. There's so much to share. It's been hard to find the time to upload pictures and write about everything...

When the waves come you have to surf... It's just the ebb and flow of my creative path I suppose? I haven't set down the paint brushes in two weeks and I haven't sewn anything since the changing pad tutorial...but I'm not fussing I'm loving every minute of painting in my new space. (*Yes, there are big details to share with blog land, coming to you all very soon.) I posted this painting to my facebook... If you only knew what the canvas looked like when I started! It was one of Arlin's many masterful finger paintings :) I think...
