I think I may have mentioned this a few times before: I have
a very an insanely creative family.
And one of the members is my lovely aunt, Monica, and recently I visited her with the sole purpose of taking pictures, so I could show you guys what she does! :)
Upon entering her home, I was greeted by this guy:
That’s Gideon everybody! :) He’s my aunt & uncle’s teckel and he is very cheeky. He was following me everywhere I went, and he kept placing these chewed on bits of stuffed animal on my feet, for me to throw away so he could catch them!
But then, I spotted a basket with something knitted in it…
What, you knit too? Of course! :) Before I could take this project out of it’s basket and photograph it, she showed me this little pup she crocheted, which is totally adorable since it’s a mini version of her own dog!
Too cute! :D
Back to the knitting. It turns out it’s a tunic made from a Drops pattern, with a crochet front panel. I love it!
I might have to commission her to make me one too; I absolutely love the yarn and the colors she chose.
Apparently, you can paint with wax. Paint. Wax. Yessir. I had no idea!
This is called encaustic art, and you basically melt pieces of colored wax on your iron and then paint with it, to create beautiful things like this…
I hope you enjoyed this little peek into my aunt’s creative life! :) I have a lot more creative family members, and I’m hoping to visit them all very soon!
