Holiday Scenes

Well, I had to do something while Mummy Girl was drying! ;) I used scrap fabric to created little painted sets. They can be arranged in so many ways, even stand up on its own. They are on ebay.
Been staying up super late almost every night this week. Busy with stuff for the girls...lots of events going on! I'm on fast forward and making these little sets up gave me a nice break! (Even if it is 4:30am!)
I'm on my way over to etsy to put my Halloween stuff on sale...good morning all! :)

A WIP, My Mummy Girl

HaPpY SuNdAy! :)
The bandage buns aren't attached yet, I'm giving them support with wire and glue when they are dry. I know most mummies don't have noses, but my mummy girl is pretty young. :) The base is made of homemade paper mache pulp. I'd write more, but Awesome Guy and I are about to watch a movie.

Hugs to all!

In time for Halloween...

I wanted to share the last few items I can list that will be able to arrive before Halloween before Awesome Guy gets home. This season is going so fast! I am SO not done making Halloween goodies! I'm actually REALLY excited about my next one!

On ebay, I have a woodburned painting that has a rustic and vintage feel. I love the way the wood soaks the paint's almost like I have to scrub it in.

A little while back, I made this tin for Dani of Ambitions Designs. She's been so sweet and helpful to me, I wanted to thank her. If you haven't visited her blog yet, you are in for a treat! It's so good that I actually spent an evening and started reading at the very beginning!

I enjoyed making the tin so much that I made some to hold Halloween treats...they are on etsy. I wanted to make them look like they had been sitting in some haunted house somewhere. :0

Have a wonderful Thursday all! Enjoy THE OFFICE...last week was a great one! I have some neat videos to share with you next time!

Oh! And the girls' picked out their costumes...we'll have a Dorothy and a girly Pirate Captain! Madeline is practicing saying "Trick or Treat, " but it sounds more like "tweet tweet!

Tea, Anyone?

I had so much fun painting this one up! Thank you for all the great comments on the sketches! I always enjoy it when bloggers show the progression of a painting, so I did one myself. You'll never get a video out of me, I'm afraid...I paint with my nose to the paper!! lol Its on the painting to go there! :)

You ARE a Princess...even if you are sick!

Lillian, in the princess dress I made her for her 3rd Birthday.

It's a sick day here today in our little house. Madeline had a fever last week and it seems that now Miss Lillian has caught it too. Hmmm...home from school and stuck on the couch? What a perfect time to introduce her to some of my favorite movies. You KNOW I was looking for Anne of Green Gables...misplaced the first volume somewhere. I popped in The Little Princess...the one done in the 90's. She knows the Shirley Temple version very well, but I love this one too. We just got to the part here she tells off Miss Mention, when I knew I had to write a post to you all about it. Jump to 5:25 to see what I mean!

Isn't that just BRILLIANT? I started to get teary-eyed, grabbed Lillian's leg and said, "That's true you know!" And THEN it reminded me of how I felt when I saw this wonderful print by the even MORE wonderful Heather of Audrey Eclectic!
The collage was sold long ago, but I know she does prints...I've been meaning to pick one up myself! Do you see Miss Mention hidden in there? I do!

I love how art reflects life, and then life reflects art...we totally went full circle today!

Every girl should feel that way. Even if you're older than you once were, or so pregnant you're about to pop, or having one of those ratty hair days, I curtsy for you, sweet princess, and hope you have a marvelous day!
