New clay doll

She has been in my mind for a long time and finally she is coming to life. She is constructed out of paper clay. I really love this product but it does not dry very smooth, I smoothed out her body with sand paper. Painting the face always scares the hell out of me, but I am very happy with it. I guess I am getting better at it, but have a long way to go.

Upcycled Purse

This wonderful donation to the thrift store would of sat on display forever since it had a huge ink stain on it. I covered buttons with fabric and sewed them on which covered the ink stain but also added a little fun. So back to the thrift store it goes tomorrow and hopefully home with some one soon...

Recycled T-shirt fun!


I bought this great t-shirt last year at Wal-mart. It was of course too small. I will be just as happy to carry it as a bag instead.

Make over for shadow box

A great friend of mine saved this old shadow box from the trash for me. After a lot of scrubbing, I cut out paint chip samples and odd-end pieces of paper I have been saving to line it with. I am really happy with the end result. It looks so small in the photo but it rather large.

New studio layout

Holidays are over and all I can think about is spring cleaning and organizing. I moved, cleaned and organized. I know it is not spring yet but why not start early.
