New Stylus.....Actually works!

Finally! Have found a stylus that works! 15 bucks @ JB Hi-Fi, could not be happier! It "glides" across surface of iPad, just like it says it will & unlike all the other styluses I've tried. (& some of those were quite a bit more expensive I might add). Can recommend this one for anyone wanting to draw or write on a capacitive screen, ie tablet or phone :) 



And here is one of my first efforts with the new stylus.....


"Newtons Apples"...digital painting created using iPad & Paper53

...I love this stylus! It really does feel and act just like a pen or brush.  It's the only one I've tried with a micro-fibre tip, so I think that must be the secret! Micro-fibre leaves the rubber-tipped stylus for dead!

My little mini factory has been in full swing lately!

I have had a sort of "sewing madness" lately, keep making dolls & cushions which have now started collecting around my house. So will just have to start selling them, along with some hand painted wooden brooches I made earlier in the year.  I'm testing the market this Sunday - wish me luck!

Doll Delight

Here she is! As yet unnamed, but she's a little piece of delightfulness. I'm pleased to finally meet her after spending the last few days cutting, sewing & stuffing in preparation for her arrival. 
 
Isn't she a sweetie? I drew her face on last, so her identity was a complete mystery until the moment she was completed. 


Check out those spotty socks & matching scarf. Cool shorts; & I LOVE her shoes....


But my favourite thing is that cute little bag! It even has a fantail on it! She's clearly a busy girl, with places to be & things to do, so I'm grateful that she's popped in for a visit.

Creating some crafty friends....



So I'm stuck at home with a huge brace on my knee, unable to drive the car or do much more than hobble about the house.  Got the needle & thread out and started making some little ladies to keep me company.  Will potter away with these & hopefully post some completed characters in a few days. Nothin much else to do (which is awesome by the way).
