The team here at Creativebug is always busy prepping and producing amazing classes for you, but we’ve also been finding time to work on some pretty cool personal projects since we last checked in for New Year’s resolutions. Come see our staff’s crafts!
Katrina, Art Director
“Here’s the mural I painted in my kitchen last week! I started a different one but covered it up after 2 days of getting nowhere with it and I’m so happy with how this one turned out. The design is from an 18th-19th century drawing from India called Intertwining Animals and Plants, artist unknown (FYI the Met has an enormous collection of images in the public domain to choose from!)”
“I made a paper mache dragon. This one is for the owner of my local coffee shop who loves dragons and her favorite color is orange.”
Erin, Growth Marketing Manager
“I volunteer to teach art classes once a week at a homeless shelter to the kids (and sometimes adults) there! We did little playing card collages as our project for my art class last week. Unfortunately, I’m not allowed to share the ones the kids did. These are just my teaching examples but all the kids from ages 3-15 enjoyed it!”
Erin also blogged about upcyling a thrifted afghan into a cardigan.
“We finally found the time to do our Ice Dyeing (Anna Joyce) project this weekend. It was fun, and Sophie [Wanshun’s daughter] wants to dye more things!”
Courtney, Editor in Chief
Faith, Project Coordinator
“I taught my seven-year-old nephew how to sew using Cal’s tote bag class and he could not be any more proud! Neither could I!!”
Nicola, Camera Operator / Editor
“Made some pup attire for Jack & my sister’s dog, Ellie! Zach & I got married this weekend & the dog clothes were a big highlight.”
Alena, Library Customer Success Manager
We always love to see what Alena and her sweet boys are making together: adorable tissue paper heart collages for Valentine’s Day and colorful flowers made from toilet paper tubes.
Stephanie, Content Producer
“I’m still trying to make friends with a sewing machine. This is the All Well Box top, my first machine-sewn garment, except for the 2nd step of the neck-binding. That was a twisty, puckery disaster, so I finished it by hand using skills I learned in Cal Patch’s “Hand Sew a Shirt” class.”
