Well I sat down to finish a piece "Two Peas In A Pod" after dragging my butt all week. So I ended up with a whole new piece! ~shaking head laughing~ With the Lyme Disease I seriously forget what I am doing so in this case it was to my benefit! My excuse this week was that I was pretty much out of clay but that IS the truth! Maybe had enough to finish a piece but now there are crumbs in the box literally! So tomorrow after doc I need to pick up a 'biggie' box of Sculpey. No now no excuses! Boy I have not made a doll in forever & actually have traded many.
This piece "Using Our Heads" I REALLY like so much so that I left it on the wall where I shot the pictures. "Sew What???" was hanging there. I keep hardly any of my pieces maybe kept 12 dolls out of 1400!!! Something about this piece I just find cool! Now will it ever come down except to be coated? Now I busted myself! All the pieces I do I take pictures BEFORE I coat them with Poly-Acrylic so no glare! I picked up that trick after 3 or 4 years doing the 'gals' as the glare was ruining their pictures. Now someone gets a piece & comment how much brighter they are in person! ~smilin~ But for all of you that have glare problems....
So whatcha think???
Hoping your holidays were filled with love, joy & Happiness. That the new year brings you all you can ever hope for. Because of the holidays I had a break as once I start working supplies are EVERYWHERE & I do it in my dining room. Until I am done....things crawl into the kitchen & I have 1/2 of hubby's shop in there. But it is time to get busy again. I did pieces for my kids & their significant others months back so no stress under the gun. My daughter is the educator & top colorist in her salon so her piece speaks for itself! I thought it came out GREAT! My son's guitar he loved as he 'mentioned' the things he loved in different pieces I made so I tried to incorporate them into one.
