Jellyfish by CreativeExcess
To say I love the game Journey would be an understatement. This jellyfish is a birthday present for my sister.

Made from wire ribbon painted with gesso and gold paint glued to a wire armature.
I haven't been very active  here for the last year or so. My health has progressively gotten really sucky in a lot of ways and also so much better cause now I know whats wrong. At the end of 2012 I had a severe allergic reaction to cedar trees, took months to recover and dealt with the horrific effects of immune suppressants. I started getting better and developed an allergy to walnuts, then pecans, gluten allergy worsened, latex allergy worsened, then lost peanuts, lactose intolerance became lactose allergy. Turns out I have this screwed up inflammatory response which causes a cascade effect. I have an allergic reaction and if I eat or come into contact with something similar to allergies I already have my immune system will just decide the similar thing is also attacking me and freak out. Food allergies are also so much worse than just hives. Obviously the anaphylaxis is pretty frightening but there are other symptoms like headaches, confusion, and muscle spasms. Whenever I hang out with new people I have to explain how to use my epi pen and that I can become so confused I wont be able to do it myself. Then I get to spend days in terrible pain as my muscles spasm uncontrollably. Needless to say, that slowed my work down considerably. Did you know you can buy benadryl in 600 pill bottles? I do now!

Things are a lot better now. Sometimes it's still a learning process and I pay for my mistakes in that regard but now that I understand how I have to approach my life and how I have to eat things are so much better. So many patterns are really coming now even my first knit patterns.

I've uploaded a bit of the work I did last year and very soon you'll be seeing new Tim Burton themed items, Harry Potter, steampunk, and fascinating uses for buttons.

P.S. you may be asking what latex has to do with food but fig trees produce latex. Losing figs was a sad day.
