.: Mushrooms and More Mushrooms :.

cuadro4colores
Rain rain go away! I want to take some pictures today! lol
It's still kinda cold here, my fingers are ice cold and hard as bricks.

I stayed up late again, this time organizing my font archives , I had lots of duplicates and those were giving me trouble, I haven't finished, I need to install some new ones and delete lots of useless zip files, a very tedious job, but hopefully I will be able to breathe under the sea of folders.

image


I am sleepy like this guy over here :), I finished the little guys I showed you in my last post , some here for the - Lucky Parcel Swap - and the others for the mini stationery sets I've made.

image


Here are the Lucky Parcels, It was a mushroom theme and I got really exited, I wish I had more time to decorate the bags, but I was behind with stuff, I wanted to print a mushroom pattern I made the other day, bu I had no time for that and I pasted some Q-lia Mushies , they turned out fine, but I still want to make the other ones :)

image


Here are the goodies contained in each little brown bag, mushie fabric,bias tape,buttons,rick rack,pipe cleaners,embroidery floss,ribbon,pins,thread among other goodies. I personally would love to receive one of these , imagine an anonymous parcel with all these goodies :), I'm dreaming now lol

image


Finally!!
I finally made my - Gingham Mushroom - Mini Stationery Set I had lots of fun putting these sets together, some were for the - 5 things Mushroom Swap- and the other ones to send to friends, I think I will have to make more to send as little Valentine Gifts, because they ended up looking cute.

image


Just look at these guys :), I made the envelopes myself form kraft paper, It took me some time, but they are the perfect size for the paper sheet :), Scarlett loved the stickers, She requested a full sheet, The mushroom illustration was inspired by the mushroom plushies I made a while ago with Scarlett, we are drawing more versions, can't wait to male those.

image


And finally, look at my sleepy - Spool Mushroom - I have a bunch of these waiting to be coated and finished :), I will post them later, this was just a prototype and I am making me an army ♥

I off to eat something and then back to work work work, exiting things are coming and I better be prepared :)

Have a nice day! ♥

Mushroom Madness
There is a whole lotta mushroom goin' on at your house, Denise! You really cranked out those little mushies, didn't you? :) They look fantastic! As well as that cute stationery. What a nice little package they make. And the colors are so perfect for Valentine's Day. ♥

I thought of this idea when I saw that spool..do you know those knitting spools that are made with a spool and some nails at the top that pretty much only make knit tubes? Those would be really cute made out of those mushroom painted spools!

I found a whole link on how to use them and everything. My aunt made me one when I was maybe 10. It was a lot of fun!

ooh, how did you make the stationary? I've been trying all different methods, but I'm not really satisfied with them. The majority look like they've come from mspaint rather than a printing press. :(

there's no secret, I use adobe Illustrator to make them :), if they look funky try and print them with more quality that would make the trick :)
