Wolf in a forest fire on a casserole dish by Zchanning
Wolf in a forest fire on a casserole dish
I randomly decided to take a four week pottery course last month and this was the first piece I made. I'm not sure what possessed me to make a casserole dish featuring a wold trapped in a forest fire, but here we are!

Custom cat rainbow shoes by Zchanning
Custom cat rainbow shoes
These were my sister's (very) late birthday present. She asked for a custom pair of shoes with 'cats and lots of color'. I think I delivered. These started out as plain white canvas shoes which were then covered in the firework fabric and outlines in red ruffle trim. I added some hand painted kitties on the sides, rainbow shoelaces, and several cat buttons on the toes and on the ends of the shoelaces. I so wanted to keep these! If we wore anything close to the same size shoe, my sister would have been getting something else for her birthday. :P

Handmade ombre basket for Re-Artcrossing by Zchanning
Handmade ombre basket for Re-Artcrossing
I was so excited when I found out that :iconvivacia18: had recreated the Artcrossing group into :iconre-artcrossing: . I really enjoyed snailmailing art to random people a few years ago and I'm super happy to get back into it! Anyways, they did a secret santa this year so this was my surprise gift to my trade buddy (whose name I do not yet know!) This was my first attempt at basket weaving. It started as a bunch of blank white reeds and one brown hoop. I wove the basket and then dyed it by hand using fabric dye. It was a really fun project, I enjoy trying new crafts now and then.

Custom art doll ~ Ray by Zchanning
Custom art doll ~ Ray
I participated in :iconeviecats: 's art doll secret santa swap this year, and this was my trade with my partner, :iconhoneycricket: This is her OC, Ray, she's from the zera species. (the species itself was created by :iconhikikoink: but Ray belongs to :iconhoneycricket: ) I had a lot of fun making her, especially styling all that hair! It's two months later now and there is STILL hair all over my room. Seriously, you guys. So much hair.

Blar I never know what to put here.

Well, I have a lot of hobbies, too many really. I'm most focused on playing my harp and practicing my drawings (I do digital paintings and charcoal sketches right now). I also sew, my technique is not at all professional but I do like making costumes. I've also made a few wicked corsets. I knit too, though not very often because I tend to lose interest before I finish a piece. When I do, I prefer complicated lace pieces or knitting pictures into things. I also have a technique for knitting two socks at the same time on one pair of needles, that's cool right? ....*crickets*....

Anywho, I haven't done a ton of art, what you see here is pretty much everything that I've made in my adult life. I'm still trying to find my own personal technique and art style. Sometimes not having a style can be really frustrating, but I'm hoping that it will come with practice. Anyway I hope you enjoy my little gallery, feedback and constructive criticism are always welcome. I have a terrible eye when it comes to my own stuff, so I would love to borrow yours sometime! :boogie:

If you'd be interested in a trade, I can make needle felt figures, simple plushies, hats, other sewn things, or other misc items. :3
I'm kind of looking for anything of this character, although she's a little complicated

Sounds good! I can do pretty much any craft under the sun, knitting/crochet, sewing, painting, needle felting, sculpting, jewelry, or I'm happy to try something completely new too if you'd like something different. Are you wanting to trade for bigger crafts or smaller ones?

Before I forget. I finished your kiriban image. So it's in your watch list somewhere. Muwhahahahahaha. I can find and link it if you want, but I lost that tab. I'm such a space case.
