Today was a good day and my birthday! I got to talk to all of my family members and it was nice to catch up. Ted and I went out to breakfast. He surprised me with a new ASUS pc. It's a little pc with a 7" screen that weighs less than two pounds. It will be great for on the go. He also gave me a beautiful red begonia. I worked on some of my outstanding projects and just had a really nice day doing things I enjoy doing. Life is good.
I want to share some of my work in progress on the Dressform class that I'm taking with Jean Bernard. This is the project that I won by guessing some of the products/objects she was using in a new endeavor. I'm having a blast and think it's coming out really good. I've also included a couple of items that I've sculpted using the techniques of Christi Friesen. This is a work in progress (WIP) so I will be posting again later as I get further along. (It helps that the weather has been rather wintery/rainy/cold/miserable, so staying in and working on things has been a welcome opportunity to stay warm, dry and happy.
Now for the dressform art. When I started this for some reason I had Ocean/Atlantis on the brain so of course - here is my rendition of the reigning queen of Atlantis. Blogger is haviing difficulty with uploading photos right now and says to try later. I am going to have to try another time. So stay tuned - pictures to follow. Have a happy night.
- 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?
