CELEBRATE with ME and WIN!!!

It was 5 years ago today that I worked my last day at Salomon Smith Barney. Lots of hard work, blood, sweat, and tears have been drawn since that day, but finally, for something with purpose...a beautiful dream! Thank you all for the love and support of me and my work!

Each year on CC's Whimsies Birthday, I have a drawing for a Whimsie. This year will be no different! Leave a comment on my blog from today 10/21/07 to 10/28/07 5:00 pm PST, and I will draw a name to win. You can enter EVERY DAY, and please spread the word of my contest. I need more Peeps!!! hahahahha

So what are you going to win????? Well, 1 set of Wizard of Oz ornaments, signed by me! I will send one set to the lucky winner once they are released...(January 2008). Let the blogging begin!!!

Fly Angels!

Another check mark added yesterday, as I sent this set of angels to Ashton Drake for Test Marketing. Hopefully they are well received and will reproduce like rabbits!

Tonight my daughter will be dancing on ABC's Dancing with the Stars... 9 pm EST/8 pm Central. Wade Robson will be dancing with 8 of them in a "Haunted Circus" kind of theme. Look for the one with the short red hair...(yes, she's back to red..YIPPEE!)

On my list of to-do's today is finish sculpting American Harvest, drawing Conceptual Clock Designs for Wizard of Oz clocks for Ashton Drake, and finishing a Scarecrow clock for dear Carla. It's a big list.... I will tell you how it comes out tomorrow. Until then, keep the stars in your eyes...and the glitter under your feet!

Whalah! Two down and One to Go!

Scared ya with a new update on my blog, didn't I? I know, I promised daily updates, but having my little friend, Sandy, in town got me distracted. I could try to play catch up and tell you about all the gory details of the week, but we (you and me) do not have the forward HO!

Speaking of "HO", it started "snowing" glitter here in the workshop. Besides this Snow Queen, I've got 3 Angels flying to Ashton on Monday. They are going to "test market" them... Will someone please pinch me? OUCH! Thanks I needed that!

One more special order to go before I finish the orders placed before my Dad's passing. My plan is to finish my first Scarecrow Clock this weekend, so I will be finally caught up! This girl pictured, "FAITH", was a special order from an earlier piece. I love how she turned out. Until next time... Be good to yourself and to the ones you love!

A Day spent with Misty Mawn

Yesterday, Sam and I spent the day with Misty Mawn...learning a bit about her techniques in mixed media collage. WHEW!!! We were exhausted by the end of the day, but we felt very accomplished.

I am a FIRM believer in continued education of all areas of art...even if it's not in my "field"! I ALWAYS learn something to take with me, and I think that is what sets many artist apart. Below you will find Sandy's creations...Isn't it beautiful? I think so!!!
