Like I said - Lots to catch up continued....

I have been sculpting in polymer like a mad woman, working on this year's wicked witch. She is titled, "Candy my pretty?" She hangs out at dusk with her cat, Sly and tries to tempt little children and unsuspecting elders with her goodie bag. I don't think I'd follow this old crone home.... Candy is about 13 inches tall - just a perfect number for a Halloween witch - don't you think? Her base is supported by four winsome halloween pumpkin heads and the cape that she's wearing is removable and lined with a patchwork of halloween fabrics. The cape's button closure is a little "silver" witch riding on her broom. Candy's knarled old arthritic hands were a hoot to make. I can see now that I lean toward the old and crooked in sculpting. Seems my faces come out male or elderly. LOL - guess that's what my "vision" is...

Lots to catch up...

I can't believe that it's September already! Time really flies when you're having fun. LOL. I participated in an insect and lizard swop on Pin Doll Alley in August and sent Connie a Cicada bug pin and a bag. The cicada is not a pretty bug and I think I got a little carried away with similarity...LOL. Oh well, I had a great time making this pin - the black, beaded wings were a lot of fun to work on. You can't really tell but the little clear beads at the top of the wing intersection are swarofski - thought it might give an otherwise pretty dull bug a little bling. Some things I guess you can't dress up! She does have a face on the front but it was all about the bug!

About Me

My photo

I am a mother and a grandmother. I was married to my best friend, Ted for over 17 years.  I am now a widow - but have many wonderful memories.  I am an incredibly proud parent and grand parent.  I am very blessed. I live with five frisky cats, one extra large swim-e fish aptly named - Fish.  Fish is a very old member of the family too, like over 18 years.  There is also a five year old crazy dog named Wolowitz in residence - kind of in the middle of nowhere - but I kinda like it that way too. I worked for a tax department which I don't find at all interesting or full filling and just a blur in my mind now.  My main time soaking love, outside of the family and friends that are very dear to me; is creating and making artfully crafted objects that warm people's hearts and tickle their souls.  Who could ask for more than that?
