Happy Valentines Day! My daughter's anniversary and as they go away for a romantic weekend to Gleneden Beach Resort. a surprise awaits them in their suite. I have ordered chilled wine with keepsake wine flutes & cheese, fruit, meat platter , finishing off with chocolate covered strawberries to be delivered to their room. In the meantime, I am swimming in material trying to get ready for the Blackberry Junction show. I have disassembled doll and bunny parts everywhere! I am creating prim dolls that are a combination of cloth and paper clay. A technique I learned by taking Gritty Jane's awesome work shop! I highly recommend her class it was fun and informative, the technique she uses for turning tiny arms and legs was worth the price of the class alone! Thank you Jane! I will be offering prim bunnies, fluffy garden bunnies, dolls, and cottage furniture for the Old fashioned Easter area . Plus aged iron pieces hanging baskets, doorknockers, garden art for the Rustic Potting Shed area of the show. As usual I am behind , but I will get it done I am determined to have everything done in time . I have a month sooooo I am thinking I should get going this morning instead of playing on the computer! So I say adieu

Where is the time slipping away too?The days have been coldand gloomy of late. It makes one want to curl up on the couch and read the day away. But alas I have work to do. It's really more like play, but it involves getting up, leaving my cozy den , snuggly blanket , and trudge the 20 steps up to my studio. There I find more half done projects then I care to think about. My eyes find inspiration .. The darling little ornaments I have purchased from my fellow artisians, antique Santa postcards, vintage Halloween and I find myself ready to start. My husband found a Sunlight lamp for my studio, it really does help when Oregon weather decides to be clouded and gloomy for days on end.
