Its always fun trying your hand at something new. These I just listed on ebay. There are two stuffed Skelly ornaments and one stuffed Skelly Halloween doll. All are under ten dollars.
On a personal note... Tomorrow my daughter Kate, who is 17 leaves for Northwest youth corp. This is a 5 week camp that she has chosen to pursue. We have been getting ready for this for weeks with special work clothes (never thought I would see this girl in a pair of Carharrtt's in life!), work boots, leather gloves... you get the picture. When Kate first told me about this program I seriously didn't think she would go. But low and behold, here we are, one day left and tomorrow she sails off. No phone calls, only letters. Still wondering how the withdrawal of her cell phone will pan itself out. Hopefully she figures out that its really not needed and that her friends will survive without 100 text messages a day... I will miss my girl. I miss her already. The teen years are tough but all in all she an awesome kid. xoxox
And yes, Sierra, if you read this, YOUR awesome too! Love mom
Lastly, next week 28, 29 and 30 I will be attending a sculping class. This is a 3 day event put on by Wendy Froud of World of Froud. I am not into fairies but am excited to sculpt some type of ghoulish figure. Or a witch. Not sure yet. She will teach how to make a full body doll. I will keep you posted as to how I do.
The last sale I had was a hit! Hurry, as these are one of a kind pieces. I recently added lots of new Halloween art and some cactus pieces...
