Well this week has been a challenge creatively. Thank goodness for a long (and cold) weekend, that allowed me to hibernate and get creative! I know I am slightly behind with this post but here are days 6 – 10:

Day 6 – These earrings are actually two pairs of earrings that I no longer wore recycled into a beautiful pair of turquoise earrings that I will wear all the time! I was inspired by a pair of earrings I saw on the Bachelorette of all places lol.

Day 7 – I handmade these flowers using silky material singed slightly on the edges. I am not sure what to do with them yet. A hairpin or a headband? Or maybe even a nice finishing touch to a wedding clutch.

Day 8 – Sorry I had to resize this down a bit to fit. Another gorgeous banner design. Love the pink and orange combination. Still have to make the avatar before listing it on my Etsy store.

Day 9 – Ok, so I am the world’s fastest knitter! Hehe not. I am cheating slightly with this scarf. This is actually a gift for a friend that I started knitting three years ago! It was so cold this past weekend, that I felt the urge to get the wool and needles out and finish it finally. It’s so beautiful. The yarn is super soft and I just love the buttery white colour. I now have a new appreciation for knitters who sell their scarves online. Taking a photo of a scarf without someone wearing it, is quite the challenge. I think it turned out ok in the end. So thanks to 30 Days of Creativity, my friend will finally get her present!

Day 10 – I am playing around with the idea of coming up with some sticker designs to sell in my Etsy store. This is just a simple design that I came up with –  I just love the vintage damask pattern. You can buy sheets of stickers on Ebay and print them youself, so I can’t wait to try the idea out.

I hope you’ve enjoyed days 6 – 10. Looking forward to sharing some more creativity soon.

Love MOS x

Well I am really enjoying the challenge of finding a way to be creative everyday. Here’s my creativity for Days 1 – 5:

June 1 – Loved designing this business package for Tessa. Here is the business card I designed for her Etsy business. I love the vertical design and Tessa was a dream client! (I’m not sure why, but the colours are a little more “vibrant” then on the actual design)

June 2 – I created this Etsy banner to sell in my store. I am so in love with grey.

June 3 (my birthday) – One of my favourite quotes that I turned in to a cute little card design.

June 4 – These are some of the slides from the blog animation I am trying to create for myoriginalsin. So far I am liking the vintage scrapbook look. I just can’t get the animation to load on my blog yet. I am so blog unco.

June 5 – A gorgeous custom clutch that I designed for a customer. The fabric is from India and is just beautiful.

Bring on the next 5 days!

Love MOS x
