A wonderful artist needs support! Support her and her amazing art :)
She needs a new tablet and I personally think she deserves a whole lot of them! Her style is unique and surely, it would be such a waste if we saw less of it! 

Check her commission journal here: 

commissions!Hiya!
The time come that my tablet said goodbye and went off with a dramatic flare (or just broke, but it doesn't sound so good)- I need a new one (and to be honest, recently I have little to do work-related, too...). Because my basic rule is that can only buy art-related stuff with art-earned money, so here we are.
If you’re interested or have any questions e-mail me at gazdowna[at]gmail.com (please, don’t use ask/notes system here).
basic prices are as shown above for two characters, no or very simple background (more like splotches of colour), personal use only. Extra character (no more than 3 in one piece) +50% basic price, more elabortate bg, detailed machine (ie. a motorbike) +90% basic price. Commercial commissions- negotiable.

So, after all that happened recently I got another household trouble.

In 2013 my housing association sued the Town Hall because they thought the annual taxes (land tax, public ground lease) weren't correctly calculated and the expert made an error in calculating land cost (which is the highest in the neighborhood for some odd reason). Sadly, they had done it so badly and so half-heartedly defended their case they lost.

In short it leaves me to around 500$ of taxes, payments and interests. So, commissions are open now.

Maiko Korin's November Kanzashi by Arleen
Maiko Korin's November Kanzashi

I needed to do this maiko kanzashi for a long time! I have quite a lot of work on my hands (commissions, trades and Christmas on top), but from time to time I just need to make a maiko kanzashi for sake of my sanity.

This one was spotted by my friend from Geisha-kai - worn by maiko Korin (you can see it here, on the original bloghuryouoyaj.exblog.jp/24717176/)

It's a November design with maple leaves, but while most November ones have maple in yellow only, this has all! Gold, silver, yellow and green.

I will surely be doing the ginkgo ones soon too!

Christmas tree #1 by Arleen
Christmas tree #1
I know it's only November, but last year there has been a huge interest in my tsumami Christmas trees. So this year I've made this one and it's going to be up on Etsy soon. It's the perfect size for a desk at work, or a small gift <3

Bunny Chirimen Kanzashi by Arleen
Bunny Chirimen Kanzashi
This comb is unique and adorably cute, both for children and adults who love an informal and cute style. It will be perfect for informal kimono and yukata! The bunny is hand-embroidered and it's eyes are Swarovski crystals!

The comb is metal, the kanzashi flowers have been glued and tied for double safety, and the back is covered with florist tape to protect the skin. 

Measurements: Approx. 10cm total (flowers and shidare)

Maiko October Kiku Kanzashi by Arleen
Maiko October Kiku Kanzashi

Took a short break in commissions to make a maiko kanzashi for October, which Youandi from Chayatsuji Kimono had shown me recently. A lovely, simple, but elegant design of multi-colored chrysanthemums worn I believe by middle-ranked maiko

I had a few issues with it: the original had 16 petals, but I didn't want to go with such a big design, I prefer the smaller ones to I've decided on 12 - which was a decision which cost me the need to shape the petals using starch in order to make mine resemble the original more. Plus, the weight of the fabrics were slightly different so I needed to take it into consideration.

I hand-dyed the silks, except the red one. I love dyeing fabrics myself to play around with colors. The green is more mint in color, but I like it.

Also, hate photographing white kanzashi on white background. I could use colored. but it gives the kanzashi a weird hue.

Still, I'm quite happy with how it turned out smile emoticon 
I need to do more of this, as I missed doing maiko kanzashi.

:blowkiss: Hello! I'm going through favorites I've missed in the past and thanking people, so bear with me for taking so long to give a personal reply.
:iconrubcheeksplz: Thank you SO much for your support by adding some of my pieces to your favorites last year. :giggle: A long time ago, I know! But I had to thank you sometime!

This is a formal invitation to come and see where my gallery has gone since then, since I believe I've vastly improved. :love: If you don't care for it no harm done and I won't bother you anymore. :D
