A Whale and some Dirty Papers

First up, a pink whale for a co-worker. She was attending her cousin’s whale themed birthday party.

and “Grunge” themed ATC.


This was really fun to do. I love distressing papers and photos. It was different from the art I usually do. I love the steampunk grunge Tim Holtz style ATCs floating around. something about them is just so awesome.

Enjoy the rest of your week. Hope you’ve got some nice projects or just relaxation planned. :)

So a Whale, a Dino and an Elephant walk into a bar…


They had a few pints, shared a few tales and after a few hours, decided to call it a night.

Whale belongs to Ian, so he stayed at work (workaholic, he’s a better worker when he’s a got a few beers in him), while the rest went home to meet up with Dino’s sister, Dina. She made them some soup, sandwiches and ice cream sundaes!

They all get along pretty well. It was a very tiring night! They soon got washed up for bed, read a few pages of the classics.. and went to sleep at a reasonable hour.

The End. :)

I’ve been working on these critters for quite a while. Made with fluffy warm fleece, some felt and embroidery thread. They are finally complete! I also now have my official plush tags! (can you see them on the photos?? I feel more professional now. hehe) The front says A Very Good Coat Rack, and the back says “designed & handmade by: Dara Grieco”, and my etsy web address. :)

These Plushy animals will be posted onto etsy (along with my jewelry) as soon as I take better & more creative pictures of them! :) Keep watching my store and add it to your etsy favorites, maybe? www.coatrackshop.etsy.com
