It's about time....

Okay so I've been a bad blogger and haven't posted in a while, so I will try to keep this short and sweet but also let you know all the cool stuff I've been up too. 

So first off we are well into Spring and for me that means garage sales!!!! They are such an addiction it's not even funny.  You can find old new and everything in between and I have been making out quite well as of late, look for future projects featuring some of my finds.  I've also been able to go the auctions, which is becoming another obession (I love the thrill of bidding and winning... favorite win so far is my Vargas pin-up print...LOVE it), luckily for our wallets Kev isn't off every Wednesday so it's a once in a while treat for us. 

I'm also working on several projects at once and I am very excited about them!!!!  I am trying to get back in the swing of sewing (making purses), I've been sewing since 3rd grade but have really put it on the back burner since I've had kids and that needs to change... now to convince the kids, lol.  I've also been hand sculpting faces/heads for a fairy tale line that will be coming out soon to our on line shops.  Today I used a new product so I can make "multiples" of the faces, it's called Amazing Mold Putty, and it works like a charm and is sooo easy to use, definitely recommend it .  I got so into it that I also made molds of things from nature that I will be using in new jewelry items.  I also bought several t-shirts today to finally start screen printing and I am oober excited about it!!!

Seeing now that you probably think I have creative ADD and I sometimes think I do too.  I let you go from my ramblings, but check back in soon I will be posting the stages of the heads and taking recommendations as to what fairytale creatures you would like seen turned into art.

As always thanks for reading and feel free to comment!
