Sick Day

4 Jan

Hey everyone, I’m just writing a quick post to let you all know that the tutorial for this week will be late. I’ve been really under the weather all week, so no crafting has been happening at all. (I’ve been editing my novel very, very slowly instead of crafting because all it requires is my laptop.)

I’m super excited about the next tutorials I’ll be doing, though, and some of the other things I’ll be sharing, so there may be 2 posts next week to make up for it. Until then, I’m going to go keep drinking chai and water and chicken soup until my head stops threatening to explode.

Not the best way to start the new year, but maybe I’ll get lucky and not get sick again until really late in the year. I hope everyone else out there is enjoying 2013 so far, and if you’re feeling sick as well, I feel your pain (and get well soon!).

Happy Holidays!

So the holiday season is finally winding down here, and it’s been a fun year! I hope everyone else is enjoying their holidays, as well, be it Christmas or otherwise. I realize I haven’t been updating much, but it’s just been a really busy couple of weeks for me with all the family dinners and visits with friends I haven’t seen in ages.

I will be back to posting once or twice a week very soon, though! Until then, enjoy what’s left of 2012, and I’ll see you back here in 2013 with lots of fun new stuff, including tutorials, art, and maybe even some short stories.

Happy New Year!

Lazy Days

7 Dec

Today I decided to share some of the other projects I’ve been working on over the last year or so. These don’t have tutorials because they were done before this blog was conceived, but it should give you a little insight into the types of things you can expect in the future.

The painting below was done a while ago, but it’s one of my favourites. I realize I’m not amazing at painting, and I actually don’t really like working with acrylics, anyway, but I’m rather pleased with this one.

TemptationAnother thing I do, and I do this semi-professionally, is design and make clothing. I specialize in latex, and I’ve even been lucky enough to show my new collection during Boston Fashion Week at the Emerging Trends show back in September. Random clothing and accessories are one thing I tend to do quite often, and I will be more than happy to post some tutorials about making latex clothing.kimberley_crawford9Okay, just one more thing to share. This is something else that I do semi-professionally in my city. I absolutely love taking photos. It’s my escape from the real world. I spend countless hours planning and setting up a lot of my creative shoots, and aside from posting the results, I’ll also post some tutorials about how to make some of the things that I make for each shoot. This photo is from a shoot I did with local model Tara Lee back in October.
IMG_9426awmsmallThis is just a taste of what is to come as this blog progresses. It’s quite a mix of mediums and styles, I know, but that’s just how my mind works.

If you want to see more of my photography you can check out Fake Believe Photography’s Facebook page.

To see more artwork (and a random mix of photos, crafts and clothing I’ve made over the last few years), check out my deviantART account.

DON’T feel pressured to go check out these sites if you don’t want to. The links are just there for if you are interested in seeing more.

Hello world!

24 Nov

Welcome to my little piece of creative heaven! This blog is where I will be posting the random creations and total disasters I create in my spare time. I’m a very artistic person at heart, and I have to be creating things on a regular basis for the sake of my own sanity. That’s why I decided to start this blog – to share with the world some of the things I would keep to myself (or my closet or garbage can) otherwise.

I will be experimenting with arts and crafts I’ve never tried before, as well as sharing some personal projects I create for my photo shoots or fashion line. Yes, I’m also a photographer and designer. And a writer. And a painter. And I’m just going to stop there, because there’s no sense in telling all of my secrets right away!

Enjoy your stay, and feel free to leave comments on anything I post! Keep in mind, though, that I will not tolerate spam or unnecessarily rude comments.

Cheers!

Kimberley
