Star Taker in a Bottle

Star Taker in a Bottle by TheArtsyRaven

This project was inspired by a craftalong I’m doing on I’m supposed to create: something round (or spherical), something that incorporates the metal brass, something you associate with Greece or your interpretation of "star taker".

Watermelon Picnic Table

Watermelon Picnic Table by TheArtsyRaven

When I bought my first home my in-laws offered to buy us a grill. Knowing I would most likely not use it that much I suggested a picnic table instead. While it might not have been used as much as I like it has still been used more than a grill would.

Mermaid and Fairy in a Bottle

Mermaid and Fairy in a Bottle by TheArtsyRaven

I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who buys something cool and have a great idea for how to use it, only to realise I’m afraid to try it because then I won’t have that cool thing any longer. I bought a set of 5 plastic domes about 6 years ago, and never used them because I feared ruining them if my plan didn’t work.

Knowing I can’t continue hoarding awesome craft supplies I decided to use at least one of them. Surprisingly enough I still remembered the original idea I had, a sleeping fairy, and so I decided to go for it.

Now that I finally have a job I can finally craft without feeling bad about wasting the time I should use to apply to jobs I didn’t mind spending lots of time on this.

2017 Gingerbread House - The Pastry Café

Gingerbread Bakery Dollhouse by TheArtsyRaven

Originally I hadn't planned to make any gingerbread creating this last Christmas, I had a lot of things to worry about, and ended up feeling pretty low. Of course as soon as I started I felt better, more relaxed.
Instead of doing an ordinary gingerbread house I decided to do something else, a bakery dollhouse.

I love dollhouses and I've wanted to make one, or twenty, in a long time. However I've not had the time to make a wooden dollhouse, so instead I made one out of gingerbread.

Warning, this post is picture heavy.

40 by 40 Mini Bucket List

40 by 40 Mini bucket list by The Artsy Raven

Age is just a number, I'm not thinking at all about turning 30 because I knew my life wouldn't suddenly change overnight. Instead my issue is knowing that I have a lot of things I want to try.

I might not have completed my 30 by 30 Mini Bucket List, but that list was made 1.5 years before I turned 30, and then my life got a little bit complicated. This time I have 10 years to complete this new list. Some of the items are easy to complete, but then there are those that are pretty hard to complete, the goal is simply to challenge myself and do things I want to do.

Wish me luck.
