Beth came over to play yesterday, and between getting doodads and geegaws ready for the kits I'm making up for the mini workshop I am teaching at Kim's home in a couple of weeks, I worked on a few more redos. This snow lady might be the biggest change of all.
Beth nick named her Frostietta.
I found this Styrofoam bunny at an estate sale and bought it for $1 because of all the millinery bouquets tucked around her. But when I got her home, I saw some potential in the styro itself and turned the bunny's bottom into a Frostietta's head.
Her crown is some sort of little metal piece that I found on the ground and added glitter to it. At first I thought it was from a watch, then I realized that watch gears are flat.
At the estate sale I found all the previous things from, I even got a handful of tatting trim to use on the shoe just like what Lisa sells in her kits.
I worked on a few more little things here and there, but mostly got things ready to list in the shop. Its a busy time of year, so any time at all that I get to play in the studio is greatly appreciated. Especially if Beth comes over to hang and keep me company so we can chat while we glue away.
Thanks for all your comments over the Thanksgiving holiday. I drew 3 names to win the cuff tutorial and have already let them know they are winners. The prizes went to:
and Brenda (dragonlady)
That was fun and easy! In the spirit of kicking off the holiday season, I think I'll give a few more away.
This Thursday I'm heading for Palm Springs for a spa weekend with my handsome husband and some close friends. When I get back I'll draw some more names. But please do mention in your comments if you want to win one. I know that a lot of you already have it, and it might not be to the taste of others. So, let me know if you want in the drawing.
Thanks for your patience.
I'll leave you with some photos of what's new.
