Just a quick note...

Aaaaahhhhh! I feel like my hands are tied as I don't have reliable internet here in Utah right now, so I can't email anyone from where I'm at. I will be back in Oregon next Saturday so hope all is well, and hope you have a wonderful week.

Craft It Forward Part 2

It took me long enough to get back to posting photos, but here's the finished pieces I created for my participation in the Craft It forward challenge. These are all made of air dry clay, and hang on rat tail cording with a jewelry clasp. The receivers of these handsome fellas are Hope of The Pixies Ponderings, Mo of Wings and Paws Whimsies, and Judy of Art Dolls.

Queen for a day.....

I was once called the Queen of "Queens" by my former station manager and his friends for the music I played on a Friday night dance music show on KWLF 98.1FM. But this award means much more to me, as a sweet artisan, who I stumbled upon through another blog buddy, lovely Lezlei of Breath of Art just posted on her blog that I've become a member of the Queenly sisterhood of artists. She had this passed to her from Sherry of Got Art? who has some of the best in art and music at her site. It originated at the very talented and delightful blogger Cassandra of My Artful Adventures . Lezlei has a blog you should definitely visit as well. Isn't the blog world wonderful?
I have so many I would like to bestow this crown upon, but two artists stand out in my mind today so I will pass the crown to

Linda of
Catherine of

Both artists are magical in their creativity and style, well worth a stop at their blog to see what they do.
Here's to all the queenly and kingly artisans I'm associated with. I feel so fortunate to be a part of such a marvelously inspiring world and in meeting such wonderful people. May your day bring you many blessings.

Jack lost his hat!!!

Poor Jack...he lost his hat, so now he's hanging on to his head for dear life! The smile you wonder?
Well, he's hoping that if he's really nice, and shows his best side, you will take him home and fill him with delicious treats. He's on ebay right now!

Ready for the art show?

Here are my entries for the art show this week.
You can't really see the paint shading very well and I do need to seal this tonight, but This Indian head is on a bottle gourd with a pine needle base attached with brass star brads. I tried to keep it simple so this is the way it will be.

So here we are and hopefully all done. Now, to choose something for the silent auction. Have a great night!

Almost done with this piece and it's a good thing as the entries have to be in on Wednesday. I have to bulk up the hair and finish the top of the hair, as well as figure out the base. This is done with Creative Paperclay over a bottle gourd. He's patterned after the Nez Perce Indians, which are indigenous to this part of Oregon.
