SNOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWW... where?

As I wiped the sleep from my eyes at 8am this morning I was expecting to see a lot of this………..


But, All I saw was this.


Although I am not surprised to listen to a terrible farce fly from the lips of a weather man I was a little surprised to see that we did not receive a flake of snow from the predicted 3-5". Not one downy flake to even foreshadow the coming of winter. Okay I am not that disappointed but.. but.. my beloved Fall is gone, the grass is dead, the trees are naked, and at least the white of snow would add a tinge of festiveness to the air. And my art thrives on festiveness.

I went to AC Moore last night and blew the bank on supplies. I bought lots and lots of beads for the deconstructed bracelet I am making. Beads are sooooo expensive. If any of you happen to know a reasonable bead store online please share the link. I also rummaged the newly formed Christmas isles for some goodies to add to my 3-D sculptures. Not 1 of the 3 is yet complete and I am starting to find that I could work on them forever adding details and finishing touches. So here is a sneak preview. Two of them are on the brink of completion but you know I might change everything at the last minute. (Remember they aren't done!)



I really really enjoy working with the 3-d sculptures but they do take a LONG LONG LONG time. But they are sooo darn cute! Oh and a little hint to they paper mache sculptures out there, instead of sand paper for smoothing, hardware stores are now making sponge like sandpaper (on a 3-d sponge) that give you much more control, I think. I like it much better and I find my fingers get less roughed up. Give it a whorl. I think it lasts longer than sand paper as well.




I am a little bumbed I with Halloween and Halloween parties for the next few day I know I won't be getting much done. I will definately be posting my costume though. Not as wonderful as I would have liked but the origanality is there!





Well my lovelys have a wonderful day. For those of you who have snow congrats on the new inspiration! I am sure I won't be too far behind you……


Smooches XXXXXXXXX
