MIXED MEDIA MAKERS

Listen on your favorite platform.

HEART & HANDS of a MAKER podcast

Sessions filled with great ideas, inspirational stories, everyday little joys, and life's big dreams. Each week, my guests and I discuss topics such as creating, the maker's life, business challenges and successes!

This design is from a while back. Makes me want to get back to these! 

Stainless tumblers. Painted. Glittered. Vinyled. Resined. 

[Resurfacing from the recent past since so much of what I’m doing right now can’t be shared and I’d like to keep the feed alive! 😆]

Snow? At the end of June? 
Well. 
Kind of. 🤦‍♀️ 
And this after a major clean up minutes before another storm rolled thru. 😆

Hummingbird Moth makes an appearance and dances across the flowers. Around and around it goes. 

Moths are so unique and magical, to me. A holdover from long ago times. 

“Hummingbird Moths are in the family Sphingidae, which encompasses over 124 species of heavy-bodied moths with long front wings in North America alone. Five of those species are all grouped under the common name, Hummingbird Moth, with the this one being noted as Snowberry Clearwing. 

“Unlike most moths, which are nocturnal, Hummingbird Moths only feed upon nectar-rich plants during the day, giving meaning to their assigned genus, Hemaris, which comes from the Greek word hemera (ημερα), meaning day. While the reasoning for their common name is a little more obvious, the evolutionary advantages are very interesting!

“This phenomenon is called convergence evolution, which occurs when two species that are not closely related taxonomically (or monophyletic) develop similar traits to one another to both adapt and thrive within the same environment. For example, this is why both the moths and birds have very similar wing structure and drink nectar from flowers. Here, both species can specialize within their taxonomic class to a prey source that is relatively untouched by other species and plentiful; thus, creating both a nectar-consuming group within the class Insecta and the class Aves. Therefore, both Hummingbird Moths and Hummingbirds developed soft, curled proboscises to drink nectar easily, as well as long and quick wings that stabilize their body long enough to drink plenty of nectar. Another theory to why these two species look so similar is because of another phenomenon called mimicry. Because the number one predator of moths is birds, it is beneficial to the Hummingbird Moths to look similar to their attackers; this takes the phrase “keep your friends close, and your enemies closer” to the next level, because the Hummingbird Moth keeps birds so close, they almost becoming them!”

Quick trip to Vegas for a professional retreat with a side of fun. Was wonderful to spend time with some amazing people, share laughs, good food, a Chris Angel show, some site seeing and a whole lot of time working on a project. 

Thanks to @orchard_hill_studio for putting on a great event and @designsbywiley and @mizzysdoodles for all you ladies did. Kellie @thecrystalninja - so wonderful sharing time and the guest house with you! 

Until next time. 
Big love

Some fun with UV Resin, glitter and some Austrian crystals. Some  @ranger_ink alcohol inks mixed in here and there, too. 

The star of the show are the @nunndesign findings. #chefskiss👌🏼 

Color combos are endless with this technique - it was only time that limited me. Would love to know how to slow time down, just a bit, as there are so many things that need to be created!
