Hello everyone! Happy New Years 2015! where have I been? Without internet for weeks!!! Ahrg.But anyhow...The year in review is as follows (in no particular order) I started 2014 with a break up, and a brand new relationship, a move from my ex boy friends house,to back home with my widowed Dad ( who is a handful ) to say the least, but still better than where I was living. I have not done a whole lot of art this past year,a few things here and there,I completed a MLP plushie order ( which I drasticly undersold myself on ) And ever since I have mostly just been making what I want, more than trying to make a profit. I successfully made and sewed my first all original plushie pattern ( The Nessie lochness monster ) I love making those little guys! Making plushies gets me so excited. I have taken notice of the adopts community and they inspire me to want to do simular things with plushies. :iconazrealrou:has been especially inspiring to me, But I have yet to actually get The gumption and,or, time and peace to start making plushie adopts. I recently got a request to make a duplicate of one of my all time favourite creations, The crochet art doll, I'm Gonna Eatya' my Dad just loves that little guy, and showed pictures of him to some of his friends back in VA. and one of his friends wanted him so much that he payed me 150$ to make a duplicate of him.Not to shabby.And I had been wanting to make a better version of him for a while now, so that gave me the push to actually do it.It was a trip to pick up the crochet hooks again after almost 2 years and have it feel so natural and good.It was like falling in love with the craft all over again. The shapes and the forms I make with the yarn and hooks comes so easy and natural to me, in contrast to the sewing of plushies which I must have a pattern that I follow so closely.With crochet, I just make a sketch and than just choose my hooks and start going,no pattern needed!
So,thats about it for the art of 2014. I also recently got a fixer upper motorcycle which has been consuming a good bit of my time as of late,I have always been interested in mechanics,and this has been a crash course in the essential workings of an entire engine. Not to mention brakes and clutches and stuff.I am so impatient to actually have it all rebuilt and  road ready. I want to ride!
And with that, I wish you all the best of the best and success in all your endeavors and dreams for the new year. Happy New Year everyone! 
Brothers together at last by MartianRaindrop42
Brothers together at last
So,here is the completed martian brother for I'm gonna eatya' The original one is perched atop the shoulders of his new (and slightly larger brother)  I am really loving his opposable  fingers.They were a bit of work,but very much worth it for the fun I can have with it! I'm a little sad that I wont be keeping him around,as he is already sold and will be living in manassas VA soon. I will take as many good pictures of them together as I can,before he ships out. This is the first pic so far
Loading...
I'm Gonna Eatya' is getting a identical twin brother soon! only difference will be that the new one will have oppossable fingers,where the original one just has rag doll fingers. Here they are side by side a WIP picture Brothers Almost by MartianRaindrop42And here are the hands done The Hands by MartianRaindrop42I can hardly wait to have them both side by side for some fun pictures before I send his brother to his new home in Virginia!

I'm a mother of three beautiful kids,a boy age 8, a girl age 7, and a baby girl age 3 . I have been a lover of art,music and nature as long as I can remember. I'm am now 29 years old and am trying to figure out how to be a full time mom, a part time artist, and still pay the bills!
I just create whatever I'm inspired to do at the time. I love to create. There is not a day, or moment that goes by without the thought of creating something wonderful going through my mind.
I am inspired by monsters, aliens, books, music, nature, mythological creatures, prehistoric and extinct animals, and so called "geek"culture.
I would consider crochet to be my master craft above all others,
though I have never made a blanket! I like to crochet the UNORDINARY!
I tend to create in bursts! That's just the way my life is. Gotta take care of the kids and family before I have the peace of mind to make cool stuff. I also enjoy the occasional art trade with other artist here on DA. So if you like something I've made, let me know, and show me what you do! If I happen to decline the trade, please don't be offended! It will most likely have nothing to with my opinion of your art, but more to do with my life being too busy to fulfill the trade at the time.
my main focus lately has been sewing. Plushies to be exact.
I believe I will also be incorporating sewn pieces into certain crochet items as well, just to save time I suppose.
