What’s New? Wednesday

Today I want to talk about inspiration.
As I am patiently waiting for my laser cutter to be assembled. I am on pinterest daily getting inspiration for items that I want to design to make my Geeksters happy.
When I look at items on pinterest, I don’t look to copy what other artists do. I look and find items that I can change to make them fit for my target Audience.
For instance the rings in the attached pictures, I saw them and my brain automatically went “Impala” and “Tardis”. I didn’t know I can cut leather with the machine, so the inspiration to make leather cuffs for people at the Renaissance Faire, especially my fairy friends.
I love how many options I now have with this laser cutter.

Where do you get your inspiration from?

Happy Geekery

Upcycled products…

I love upcycled products and so I decided last year to make Denim Bags from old Jeans. When I was a Teenager, I had made myself my favorite purse from my favorite old Jeans that I could no longer wear.

My Denim bags are lined in SewGeekAustin’s signature Pink and come in different fandoms. Of course Supernatural is one of them and I decided to make a tribute bag to the beautiful car of Dean Winchester. Including the Army Man and the Lego.
