Creative Corner: COSTUME for the Day of the Dead 5k

So I took a day off from pet portraits to work on my costume for the Day of the Dead 5k hosted by Dos Taquitos Centro and the Boys and Girls Club of Raleigh. I had such a good time! My calves are pretty sore today, but the creating of the costume and the application of my face paint made it well worth it. Now back to pet portraits... :)

First mention of my work on a TV show!!!!

Amy's Creative Corner has had its first mention on a TV show in North Carolina! This is very very very exciting for me. My Carolina Today mentioned my Halloween pet costume contest on their show on Monday. Here is the link with the mention:

Although they made it seem like the winner gets a free photography shoot, I am grateful they are giving me exposure and potential customers! I am hoping that this is just the beginning to more press for Amy's Creative Corner...

Custom Orders: bridal shower gifts

'Tis the season for bridal showers! I was asked if I created custom skirt aprons by a friend who was looking for a gift for her cousin's bridal shower. After I told her that I had never made one before and wouldn't mind showing her the outcome before she purchases it, she said "no way! I trust you!" So, I attempted to create a skirt apron similar to the one she liked a lot on I went to work using the grey and cream color scheme she asked for. Hope the cousin enjoys wearing her custom apron, my friend certainly gave me the kindest feedback!

And the teal colored one is for a coworker's bridal shower this evening. She loves to cook, so why not keep the spirit of the apron going! I also made her matching stationery, a set of 5. Hope she likes her gifts!
