Twisting my mind

Its now the end of the day and I sit here with a throbbing brain. No I am not sick with the swine flu. I worked on my website. It took all day just to do one silly graphic. After getting through some technical difficulties stemming from LACK of knowledge I am well on my way. Looks like this new site will be launched by the end of this week.... hopefully sooner. It will have a fresh new look with beauuuutiful graphics (pat'in me self on the back). I cant say there will be any new items but hopefully that will come next week. I also am going to "attempt" a mailing list. I have done this in the past and got overwhelmed from the whole thing. I think I have found a better system that will help me organize contacts and such. My long term goal would be to send out "occasional" updates and news postings. At the moment my blog is working that just fine.
I will post on here when my website is completed. I hope all whom visit me can take a peek and if there is something that does not work or looks whacked out, please let me know.
Its off to bed I go. Throb throb throb.

Halloween skelly, flower girl and Halloween clown

I have waiting to be painted, three really cool pieces. One is a Halloween skelly man, another a flower girl and lastly a clown that will be in Halloween theme. All three of these will be mounted on a square block of wood painted to match. All should be done by Tuesday unless I get a full day's work in tomorrow. Just come back again late tomorrow to see how I have progressed.

I hope every one had a wonderful weekend. We sure did. Although there was little sun and a few sprinkles here in Oregon, it still was nice. A wonderful bbq and some outdoor fun. I love summer!

Come back again soon if you want to see the newest batch!!

All art cards start at 4.99. The dark art start off at 24.99! If you wait till the last minute you can miss out. And for these prices why not start the bidding now? No, I am not begging.

Also, I wanted to post an update on what's up for this week. Robots! Small 3-4 inch tall holiday robots. DO come by again for a peek. These should be done by mid week.

message just in time


Talk about good timing... Lorrie from "our name is mud" (awesome mugs and gift ware goodies) send me a box with some wonderful gifts today. This one in particular I had to share. This 2009 has been probably the worse year so far to date. With barely a light at the end of the tunnel and opened the box to find this message staring back at me. Whew. I am, we are, going to be ok. The mug says so!! Take a deep breath in and start the day over. How wonderful to take sips of coffee and find this at the bottom. Really. So thank you Lorrie! And all who have not seen Lorries blog or mugs and such please take a peek. She is so creative and you will love reading her blog stories that will just crack you up :) xoxo

Finished Santa, Snowman and Skeleton man

Reindeer Snowman, Ashes Ashes Skelly man and Sage Santa are now finished. Now off to start some paintings. I found some super cool mini canvas wood panels yesterday. Kind of excited to paint on these. Hopefully the paintings will be a good addition to my Etsy shop, which is very low on goodies. Bye bye for now~~~~~~~
ps here is a wiki link for the info on the Ring around the rosie nursery rhyme.

This week

What's up for this week? How about a a Santa, a snowman and a Halloween figure? Can't say much else because I am still in the sculpting process. All are looking great so far! For the Santa collectors... Since these take me much longer to sculpt I dont create as many as I would like. This guy is sweet. And very much like my older style Santa's.
Post again either later tomorrow or Wed. Ta Ta!

Etsy shop sale

I have added 9 items to my SALE page in my Etsy store! Do stop by and take a peek. Some of the newest items are the papier mache - paper clay dark sculptures. These too where also added to the sale page! What'cha wait'in for???? Halloween????

Halloween trio AND website changes

Our first sunny kinda warm day and I spent it inside making changes to my website... Oh, did I say it was fun? Ya, I did not. Its all good when things go smoothly but how can that be? grrr. So I am typing this with a big fat 40 lb feeling boulder on my shoulders. Why does stress go there? I am in need of a serious dose of Tiger Balm. OK, now I feel much better... (not really but I didn't want some Saturday negativity thing going on). As you can see the above Halloween trio actually started this whole adventure. They did not fit on my page. SO I added a NEW Halloween ONLY page! All other sculptures will be on the "other sculptures" page :) DO take a peek at these guys. Two of them are very different from what I usually do. And the JOL is my usual but he's extra sweet!
Happy weekend to all. Now, mine will start. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Update on the Halloween trio. I have them completed and attempted to add them to my website but due to some spacing problems they wont be up for viewing until tomorrow. I am thinking I need to add just a Halloween page and have all other holiday pieces on another. This will help the download time too. So till tomorrow... :)
