This is a piece of cork from a champagne bottle. It's not exactly what I wanted but the cork was proving hard to cut, so I decided to just engrave it.

I have been wanting a dry erase board for the house. I found this black one that uses neon markers. I decided to try and draw a sun on the board. The neon colors didn't come out to good in the picture and the lines are not very solid.

Today I decided to finally play with the henna kit I bought awhile ago! This is my first time using henna. The first picture is with the henna paste on, and the bottom photo is after I took it off. I loved playing with the henna. I think if I decide to work with henna again I might use one of the recipes off the internet to make it a little darker.

Apple Sun! This oddly reminds me of the flowers from Alice and Wonderland!

I entered in a Halloween contest on a site called The Hello Project last year. I didn't win but I love the concept of just saying hello in some kind of doodle on a Post-It Note. Here's my Sunny Hello!

I have been admiring these trees on my drive to and from work! I have been wanting to stop and take a picture of them but kept forgetting my camera. When I started this project I thought how cool would it look with the sun shining between them. I finally remembered my camera today. Being that I live in the Sunshine State I am sure I will be taking more photos of the sun!

What's Valentine's Day without the conversation hearts candy! I used the Sweethearts brand because I think the original Brachs candies are just gross!

I was having a hard time coming up with something to do today! So I searched through the Make Something 365 Journal for some inspiration. One of the entries mentioned toothpicks.

I think this one looks a bit silly but that is kind of what I was going for. I found an Instructables page on how to make a pencil case. I got the design part done so I thought I would go ahead and post it, seeing as the sewing part is probably going to take awhile. I will post the finished piece when I am done.

I talked to my brother yesterday and he gave me the idea of doing a solar eclipse. This is my version in pastels and charcoal. I think I might try this one again and give the sun and moon both some character.

My Brother's Suns

My brother decided to get involved! I love that my family is taking part in my project. They are my biggest fans! I love you guys!

The top one is made from carrots and the bottom one is made from fortune cookies and fried egg noodles! I think he did a great job!

I have been wanting to play with digital painting in Photoshop! I didn't have time to do that so I ended up with this illustration style done in Photoshop! I wish I had more time to add more detail and fine tune it a bit.

We made Buffalo Chicken Wraps for dinner tonight, so I thought I would use the hot sauce to make my sun tonight!

This is a wire wrapped Sun! I am not totally happy with the outcome but I will explore trying to do this a different way another time.

I thought since I have been using the black paper as my back drop for the past couple sun's, I would try and draw on it with colored pencils. I think it came out ok. I used Crayola Colored Pencils and they are no where as nice to work with as Prismacolor! Need to break out the good color pencils next time!

I am really enjoying working with candy! With Valentine's day around the corner everything is in the shape of hearts. Here are some of my all time favorite candies Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, well hearts in this case.

This one is made out of rice! I had planned on it being a more intricate piece but I bumped the table and messed it up! So I ended up with this one!
