Contaminated Candy: Peppermint Butler




Our whole family are huge fans of Adventure Time. Mr. Deal especially loves the adorable Lord of Dark Magic, Peppermint Butler. When John's mug broke, I promised to get him a Peppermint Butler mug to replace it, but when I couldn't find one I liked, I opted to make him one instead.



The opportunity to create a great version of Pep-But came when @mabgraves Drawloween Instagram challenge 'Contaminated Candy' came along in October. This drawing of Pep-But is inspired by the Adventure Time Nemesis episode where Pep-But wears his cape to battle the Peace Master. Here is my original drawing above and below is the piece in progress as a vector.



I've enabled a bunch of Pep-But products in the Teetoo Society6 Shop. Here are a few of my favorites...

Contaminated Candy: Peppermint Butler All-Over Print T-Shirt

Contaminated Candy: Peppermint Butler Phone Cases

Contaminated Candy: Peppermint Butler Laptop Sleeves



Everything in the Society6 Teetoo shop is 15% off today with free worldwide shipping.

It's snowing  here today for the first time this year, and although I'm a wee bit sad to say goodbye to autumn, it really is quite beautiful. I've been busy working on a few special orders for Christmas and I am putting together a few other new things for both my Etsy shop and Society6 shop that I hope to share soon. We're also beginning to decorate our home for Yule today.

Enjoy this wonderful season!

Pumpkinhead


Hi! Long time no see, hey?

I couldn't let my favorite season go by without making a little something, so I whipped up an autumn drawing that I'm fairly pleased with. I made this illustration for the Instagram Drawloween challenge for jack-o-lantern and now there are a few Pumpkinhead products available in my Society6 shop. I hope you love him.


I adore vintage images of pumpkinhead characters so much, which have obviously inspired my drawing. L. Frank Baum's Jack Pumkinhead is my very favorite. Follow this link to read Baum's Jack Pumpkinhead and the Sawhorse short story online. We watched Baum's Return to Oz last weekend and it was just as great as I remembered it being as a kid.

































If you're on Pinterest and you love pumpkinheads and Halloween as much as I do, you might like my Halloween Pinterest Board.

On a personal note, to say that this year has not turned out as I had expected, is an understatement. In the springtime I found myself in the throes of extreme adrenal fatigue and anemia. So, I decided to pull myself away from everything unnecessary and nursed my way back to health with homeopathy, herbs, nutrition and lots of napping. I've changed my life and psyche drastically since then to ensure that I don't slip back into the same state that landed me in exhaustionland. Not checking in here was part of that process, so I apologize for disappearing again. Anyway, I do have a few projects I'm chipping away at in my own time that I will finish eventually and I do hope to check in here more regularly again. Thank you so much to those of you who continue to stop in here to see what I'm working on.

It is my hope to be back again before Halloween, but if not, happy haunting!

Sweet Dolphin



I've decided to use my love of vintage collectibles to inspire my desire to make new stuff for the Teetoo Society6 Shop and create my first fabric designs on Spoonflower. Here is my new project and I am pretty thrilled with it. Making these dolphin designs has simply been a lot of fun and I've learned a lot over the past week.

Making illustrations was a strong motivator for me to launch Teetoo, but I notice that I avoid drawing and painting for some reason. Maybe it feels like too much pressure or something. When I feel that way, I find that cut paper seems to make an illustration project less intimidating and more fun. And that's what the vision for Teetoo was to begin with- a means for me to be creative just for fun. No pressure to be a serious 'artist'  here (whatever that means). Just play. So I guess it's pretty fitting that I decided on a playful dolphin...

Here is the cut paper dolphin I made last weekend.



Here is an example of some of the vintage chalkware fish that were the inspiration for my dolphin. I love these so much.

*Vintage Chalkware Fish from TinkersNThings*
I think The framed dolphin print turned out nicely and would make such a cute piece for a baby's room. But as this is my first foray into creating designs for other items, I'm especially excited to see my wee dolphin as a mug, a tote bag and throw pillow. But my absolute favorite, hands down, is the shower curtain

As a bonus, it just so happens that Society6 is having a great sale today! 15% off everything and free worldwide shipping.



And after several years of wanting to try my hand at fabric design, I've finally set myself up with a Teetoo Spoonflower shop. I've just placed an order for a couple of swatches of my Spoonflower Dolphin fabric and as you can imagine, I absolutely cannot wait to see it in the flesh!



I hope your day goes swimmingly!

Little Homemade Homes Part 3: Fabric House Ornaments


This is the final homemade home I made for the holidays. This project also came about from a pin on Pinterest. The Fabric Home Ornaments free pattern is from the Retro Mama Blog. Her houses are absolutely adorable. Take a look!

The originator of this project included even more details on her houses- wee door numbers and little birds. These homes were fun to make, but they took me way longer to complete than I had expected which is why I skipped some of the details. Another way that I deviated from the original pattern is that I hand embroidered the stitching around the doors and windows. I tried the first few with my machine and I wasn't thrilled with the results. Mine didn't turn out looking as nice as the ones shown with the pattern. The hand-stitching of course took longer, but they came out so much lovelier that way.

I made twelve in total, but I couldn't complete them all at once so I didn't get images of them all. These were given to my family and the children's teachers. Everyone who received one of these really loved them. This is a very nice and easy holiday sewing project.
