It's been awhile since I posted. I've been babysitting Jonathan for my daughter who is working now and he is in his terrible twos and boy is he. I'd forgotton how much energy they have and how little I do LOL!!

I've also been trying to grow some flowers and vegetables: tomatoes reg. and cherry, peppers, okra, squashes, and even planted some vines Kiwi, raspberry and blackberry. I had some hybrid lilys coming up really nice but the squirrels or rabbits or both decided they were for eating....my begonias are not coming up yet but the glads are starting to show them selves...

We have a small stream that goes in front of the house and I planted some squash along the bank and they are coming up but they may be getting too much water they're looking a little on the yellow side...I've never had a very good green thumb...but I always keep trying.

Trust Me Swap


Playing with some polymer clay yesterday and came up with this idea for the inchey swap unicorn horns... I used three colors of clay mixed together champange, white and translucent. Rolled them into balls and then rolled them onto a texturing surface inserted the eyescrews and baked them lightly sanded them with 4 different grits. I used gold rub and buffed on one to see how I liked it.

I'm still learning to use my new camera so bare with me I'll get better...I didn't realize that the date and time wasn't set yet so that is wrong on there...I just took that pic this morning...

Artist Trading Dolls












She's Got Pearls!



Painted with Acrylics
She Got Her Wings!
















This is a new group that takes the concept of the Artist Trading Cards, and goes a step further by making a templete and using it to make a paperdoll redition. Then we either trade as individuals or groups...





These are a few of them that I've been experimenting with. Some of them have a Paper Clay, polymer mask or just acrylic painted faces and I've used watercolor on the blond here.




They have silks, fibers, embellishments, special handmade papers, and paints to make them and are created on a cardboard backing signed and dated.


The patterns used by permission are from Sherry Goshon and the one that folds up to card size is byJudy Wellnitz!


I believe that the mold used to make this Silk Pink Flower Girl, is a Maureen Carlson angel face...that I used Watercolors to paint.
