Art Dolls

I've been very busy working on my Etsy shop. Thank goodness for my 10 year olds help with "browsing" for my pics on my PC and uploading them. I'll admit that I had been sitting in front of my PC just seething with frustration trying to upload the un-uploadables! What is it about the language of computers that speaks so easily to the younger generation? I keep threatening to send him to summer school to learn more about computers!!!! Unfortunately he sees right through my self-serving agenda!

While I was taking a little break today I stumbled upon this little gem of a blog. You really should take a look, especially if you are interested in art dolls. These people have a challenge to make 100 art dolls and they will be posting about each and every one of them. Want to know the biggest catch??? They arn't supposed to buy any new supplies ! I'm almost tempted to join. I think it would be absolutely wonderful to dig into my stash of fabrics and ribbons and try to make even a dent in the stash!

My Newest Remembrance Vessels

I've been addicted to creating more vessels lately. Here are just a few of what I've been working on. Each one is approximately 2" tall and has a hidden opening that allows cremains to be inserted before sealing with glue.

It's been awhile....

Wow time sure does fly! I can't believe that it's been so long since my last post. I have been very busy though, I'm getting a lot of clay-time in and that always makes me happy.

This past Sunday was our regular monthly meeting for the clay Guild that I belong to. SOPCG or the Southern Ontario Polymer Clay Guild. This guild is a wonderful group of (mainly) woman that get together to share ideas and techniques. You just can't beat getting together with like-minded people.
This time we worked on caning. Judy Belcher's technique to be exact. Many of us have purchased her wonderful books or her DVD and been very inspired. One of our most avid caners in the group, Sandy led us on our journey of tessellated canes.
