Slow Down!

Sometimes when you least expect it, something comes along and tells you to "SLOW DOWN." That messenger came to me last week in the form of Swine Flu! Why it had to hit at quite possibly the WORST time of the year is beyond me. At a time when I was already stressed and wondering how in the world I was gonna get everything done in time for my next show, H1N1 told me to stop and smell the Tamiflu. After a week of laying on the couch and watching Oprah, Ellen and The View, I'm ready to get back at!
I've managed to finish up a couple pieces today. The Santa and Snowman candy dish is a whopper in size. Over 2 feet tall, the Santa is removeable to reveal a place for candy. I've also finished up this Santa bust. A new design, he was really fun to make and I have plans (next year!) to make some angel and snowmen ones.

Hopefully, the worst of this darn flu is over and I can start posting more pieces in the next two weeks before my show! One can only take so much of daytime TV...UGH!

Where Does the Time Go?!!!!

Oh my gosh! Has it really been over two weeks since my last post?! I hang my head in shame :(

I've been SO busy getting ready for my next show - Harvest Festival - it seems there are just not enough hours in the day to get everything done! I have been up to my earlobes in Santas, elves, angels and snowmen. Here's a shot of some recently finished snowmen - big ones, small ones, skinny ones and fat ones!Besides getting ready for my next show, I've also been making a few new creations for the next update of Spookytime Jingles (tomorrow at midnight). Here's a couple of my new offerings...I promise as soon as I can catch my breath, I will be posting some more WIPS and (if I'm lucky) some actual finished pieces!
