Well, I'm on Etsy now and this little guy is for sale. I've listed just about everything I've done in the past year and am working on more. This is a very exciting time for me since I'm finally out there in the cyber world, of course, so is everyone else! Anyway, I'm happy about this decision and hopefully it will bring in a little extra income. I've been having more fun reading the feedback I'm getting from otherEtsy members...they have made me feel right home.

Well, need to run. Have to start on that OB-GYN sculpture. Peace out.

The New Family Member

Meet the new member the new member of the family. My mother's right-hand gal got this one for me at a stand selling all kinds of calaveras. It's just gorgeous and intend to start collecting as many as I can. Next year, I hope I can get a big one.

I was given the opportunity to do a sculpture for this woman who contacted me through a mutual friend. Her husband is a OB-GYN and she wants a sculpture reflecting his profession. Well, when I talked to her this morning, I got all sorts of ideas, referring to my own experiences of course. She came over and saw my dolls and was sold on my sense of humour. She showed me a photo of a little sculpture a friend of her husband's had in his office, which was purchased in Puerto Rico. It was a bit graphic, but still damn funny. My sculpture will be a bit more conservative, but still will be hilarious. I'll be using coloured polymer clays and need to go to some medical supply sites to get really good pics of speculums and tables with stirrups...geddy up!!

My oldest son, Joel, left today for Austin. He's going there to pursue a spot in the graphic design world and hopes he can find something suitable...what a time to be looking for a job!! Luckily, he'll be staying with my daughter and 3 boys so she's looking forward to having a baby-sitter for the weekends!! That girl, I wonder how she got so cheekie!!! hahaha!!!

Well, going back to the studio and work on some Christmas gifts. I'll get started on the small sculpture tomorrow, but she is going to call me later as to tell me wether we need to put a baby bump on the patient or not...I voted NOT, but it's her call. Peace out.

Dia De Los Muertos 2

Here we are, a bunch of crazy adults having crazy fun. I dressed as La Llorona and the young man next to me is my son, Ian. He went as a zombie judge; notice the sledge hammer instead of a gavel!! The other photo is at the party. Most of us older women have known each other since we were 15 years old...we went to same high school....nothing like old ! That's my hubby next to me in the back...he went as a fat biker dude!!! I told him I really liked the tattoos and should keep them on until he has to go back to work tomorrow!! It was such a beautiful night, we sat outside for the meal and later sat in front of the chimeneas while everyone told ghost stories. Sorry I was the poop that was just too tired...got up with my grandson, Aiden, in the early a.m. Saturday for a change and feeding and then again 3 hours later, so these old bones and no stamina lady hit the hay early....well at about 11 anyway.

Need to run. Promised Ian I'd make him his pizza for lunch before I take him back to his father. Poor kid has been craving it for 2 weeks now, so better get started.

Dia De Los Muertos

Haven't written in a while and was waiting for tomorrow, so I can post pics from the party tonight. Vern went to Party World the other day and picked up a wig for my costume. I couldn't help it, I had to try it on! So here I am with my wig on that silly afternoon!! I intend to braid it for night, but it's been years since I had hair that long!!
