Interesting magazine I just read

Have you ever heard of the magazine called “Mary Jane’s Farm” ? Me neither!!!! My friend brought it over the other day to show me some sewing ideas in it.

It’s a cool organic lifestyle magazine that has articles on how to make interesting dishes to eat, how to guide on crafty ideas and home and garden help.

I liked the article in the volume 10 #5 edition on recycling a vintage wool coat into a cute little heirloom teddy bear! AND it also gives you a link to a website to be able to donate your creations to children in homeless shelters, hospitals and to paramedics who keep them on hand and give them children in need of emergency comfort! Excellent idea!

Here is the site if you are crafty and want to donate handmade dolls and stuffed animals.

Check it out!

I have been artistic in one way or another all my life. Growing up in a creative family fueled my desire towards being an artist. I moved to Santa Cruz, CA from Detroit, MI in 2009, I needed a creative outlet and started volunteering at a local Clay Studio where I created many hand built ceramic vessels and fun sculptures. From there, I stumbled into sewing and started a handbag line under the name Mackerilla Design. After many years of sewing my bag designs, (which I currently still sell sewing patterns of my designs on ETSY and through a few online retailers) I wanted to get back to being an artist and started painting in 2014. Since I am passionate about animals and volunteer for rescues, painting dogs and cats in acrylic paint on canvas would be my subjects of choice! But I do love to paint all other living creatures as well as a few humans here and there! My approach is to capture the animal’s essence through the look in their eyes. To show their vulnerability and love for their humans. I truly love painting and have so many ideas continuously swirling in my head! I feel I am still learning and growing. I am looking forward to my future to see my progression as being an artist. -Janice Serilla
