These embroideries make lovely, unique gifts for anybody. If they strike your fancy, click on the links below the picture for more information.

These embroideries make great additions to a home, office, dorm room, and more… they are lightweight yet durable and can hang on most any wall!

Terrarium

I noticed that this little guy was shown in one of my earlier posts, but I hadn’t shared him with y’all yet. So here you go!

This is Terrarium that I made not too long ago. It is made with eco-Felt, wool felt balls, embroidery thread, ribbon, cotton gingham, and some acrylic paint. The jar is a recycled/up-cycled jar with tiny handles on the sides. It’s a really lovely piece that is actually for sale at the Handmade Galleries in LA.  This is one of my favorite terrariums to date. It’s nice and big and is quite lovely. Each flower (felt ball) is hand embroidered with painstaking detail and is nestled amongst leaves of grass. There are three unique flowers inside the terrarium as well as one small flower on the outside of the terrarium (on the bow). Green grass is even painted on the bottom of the jar to give it even more dimension.

I hope you like this piece as much as I do.

Art On Display

Here is a view of my work on display at the gallery in Burbank!

Power Blue and Pendants? Yes PLEASE!

Each piece shown here was handmade, drawn, painted, or screen-printed by me. Everything was/is made with love and care, and an extreme attention to detail. This space measures about 10 by 10 feet, although this photograph cuts off a bit of the right-hand side.

I think that everything looks really great! The blue paint for the wall was perfect (I mixed it myself)! One of my friends even said “Page, whenever I see that color blue, I think of you!”

Stay tuned for more pictures soon!

Good Luck Charms

I would like to introduce to you my newest addition to my Etsy shop and the Handmade Galleries, Pink Toe Press’ LUCKY FEET! These Lucky Feet are a lovely little good-luck charm that you can carry with you wherever you go. They are a lovely new alternative to the traditional “good luck” charms.

Throughout my formative years,  I always wanted to have my very own “Lucky Rabbit’s Foot,” but I was never lucky privileged enough to get one. My parents were pretty smart about which fads they endorsed and which they discouraged, and a “Lucky Rabbit’s Foot” was never mine.

That being said, my father is a hunter and a practical man,  he did offer to bring me home the foot of a rabbit from one of his hunting trips, but I never did take him up on that For years I envied all the other kids who had the brightly-colored lucky animal’s foot dangling from their backpacks or trapper-keepers…but I digress.

A lucky “Rabbit’s Foot” on my vegan purse.

NOW as a vegetarian and maker, I have found a lovely solution to my childhood dream of having the foot of a poor, dead critter on my bag. These Lucky Feet are handmade with love and care, crafted from Eco-Felt, ribbon and string, and can be clipped just about anywhere. You can use them as a zipper pull, key chain, or an accent on a bag.  An added bonus is that they are cruelty free, animal friendly, and vegan friendly.   I currently have a variety of color options available for these feet, and they come in “Rabbit” or “Cat.”

VOTE FOR ME!

Please VOTE FOR ME!

If you haven’t heard, I recently painted a mural for a Live-Art Competition in Los Angeles over the weekend of September 23 and 24. I created a lovely little well not-so-little, painting that depicts Hollywood Boulevard on Parade. It is a fun and playful piece that captures both my personal style, and what I always imagined Hollywood to be like. If you’ve never been to Hollywood, it’s a little different than what I imagined, but it does always feel like a parade has just ended. There is always music playing, food cooking, and there is always someone wearing a costume or handing out balloons. I think that my piece captures the idea of Hollywood very well, just without any of the copyrighted characters that seem to spend their time there.

Here’s how to vote:

More information is available on the 1881 Project website, but this is a competition for the community of Los Angeles AND the WORLD to participate in the outcome of this competition. I was picked along with 8 artists to paint an individual mural inspired by one of “Los Angeles’ Famous Boulevards”, and we each chose very different subject matter, mediums, and boulevards. If you like my piece, I would really appreciate your vote! You can vote with your email address OR through Facebook. If artistic democracy wasn’t reason enough to vote, each voter is entered to win an ipad 2.

Many Thanks,
