Happy Memorial Day!

Goodness it's been a while. Summer seems to finally have jumped the fence and entered upstate New York. Today it is supposed to be in the low 80's F and it is incredibly sunny. Ted marches in the local parade today. He will play either the baratone or the valve trombone. The Cambridge Fireman's Band is the oldest continuous marching band in the United States.

I've been working on a polymer clay project using the Wendy Froud techniques from her current DVD set. Well, okay - some of her techniques. I find that I usually start out with good intentions but go back to what works for me. I'm finding that although it's helpful to watch how others do their art - what works personally is usually the road I take. I've been busy painting the house and playing with my grandson who is here visiting for a couple of months. Life is good and I am very lucky. My dolls are out in Canandaigua for the month and since the month is almost up - I'll be picking them up on June 3rd. It was great to meet the wonderful artists in the Central New York Doll is Art Guild. Wonderful people and beautiful artists.

These are a couple of pictures of my Deep wood Imp that is in progress for my WF project:

Hope everyone has a safe and happy Memorial Day!

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?
