Tinsel and Treasures

Back from Tinsel & Treasures, what a beautiful show! Got to see so many good friends, and seeing Sammie was a surprise BONUS!! Colleen Moody's dolls were to die for, wish I'd taken pics.. especially of her tall Halloween witch. Our Whimsy Queen Christy had her wonderful creations, yay it was awesome to see you Crusty! I could have spent a fortune, but had to hold back, though I did find a beautiful charm necklace made by Sylvia Anderson that will go to Germany next week as a birthday gift. Sue Bartolucci had an amazing display of her wild and wonderful art, as did Iva and all of the artists.

I met Gina Gabriell from the shop Tangerine, she was giving out yummy chocolates and yummy gummy treats!

Thanks for putting on such an amazing show Iva, wouldn't have missed seeing you all for anything :). I'll post a few pics later.

Fun Sketching

I have had to rest my back regularly, and since I cannot do my paper mache right now it has been easy to pick up my pencils and a sketch pad. This is a portrait of my daughter, who I have had fun turning into an elf. It is not done, I'll post the final version.
