SWAG = Loot.

The ICE crew do up these give-a-way bags with cards from vendors, samples, and other fun stuff. I didn't participate in this the last show, so I didn't want to miss out this year.

These little lumps of clay have consumed my life for the majority of this week. First, I sculpted the positive from clay. (I have a new found respect for the person in charge of sculpting for the US mint.) Then, I made a negative for stamping into clay out of sculpy. Next, rolling out clay, stamping, cutting out ovals, smoothing and pokeing the holes. 500 didn't sound like that big a number when I started, but after all that and making little envelopes to enclose the pendant and a buisness card my fingers are tired. I have decided to make a few and doll them up to sell as well. I am going to take a break and do something else for a while.

Small Fabric Paintings

I have been wanting to do some smaller fabric paintings for a while and have been gathering frames from yard sales and from store sales. Friday I got out my sissors and thread. This is what happened.

The website has been updated! (a little) I updated all of my shop links and added new balloon vases to this page:

An example of some of the new work.
More updates to come soon.

Ice-Atlanta...In the Park.

Come see me in Atlanta on June 2nd. This will be my second Ice Show and I can't wait to see everyone again. It will be my first time selling outside and thusly my first experience with a tent. I will have to do some practice runs setting up because it will also be the first time David won't be there to help me get settled in. You may be able to spot me easy, I might be the one standing by the tent pile. Selling my stuff out of boxes. (Like the people at the flea market.) : ) Nah, I will be fine. I have a month to get ready. Plenty of time to get some extra stuff done. I want to make a banner, print some t-shirts, make smaller fabric paintings, and paint a cow. That should be easy enough. I better get a move on though.
