Merry Halloween??????

I found this vintage graphic, and I found it odd that it says MERRY Halloween.....
Who says Merry Halloween? My Husband just told me he heard it called Merry Halloween once
in the early sixties. Do any of you say Merry Halloween?

The Boneyard....

How many of us have a stash of sculpted pieces and parts lying around here and there waiting for their turn to be created into something beautiful. I am a perfectionist, and if there is something wrong with what I perceive as perfection, then off to the boneyard that particular piece goes. I have so many more than pictured but didn't want to bore

I am left with a dilemma...I can't use them, but I can't force myself to throw them away. So
the stash gets bigger and bigger. Maybe someday I will do a piece with all the sculpted parts
incorporated into one big sculpt. I'll have to think about that one....

Fall colors in my own backyard

A big snow storm is coming in a few days so I thought this might be the last time the leaves will be on the trees in beautiful fall splendor.

We call this the "Mound". When we planted on the mound we didn't realize that we would have every fall color.

We still aren't done with it. We plan on having a small granite bench on top in the corner and some steps leading down the back.

The Grandkids love the upward path.

Mary Ropelato Art Dolls

One of my favorite artists Mary Ropelato, has been a friend and customer of mine for over two years. She started sculpting two years ago and her dolls are truly a work of art. There is a beautiful darkness about them. Her eye for detail, proportion and color is phenomenal. She has taken the last few months off of sculpting because of her pregnancy. Now her baby is almost three months old and she is getting back to sculpting. Please visit her website and view her dolls.

I also have a link to her blog located under Wonderful New Artist's Blogs.

Ready to sculpt again...

Well my doll show is over and I did pretty well. I sold 4 Reborns out of the 6 that I took.
I came home and put everything back where it should go,
and I cleaned the house and got all of my sculpting supplies out and ready to go.

I have had so many ideas floating around in my head I don't think I will ever get around to sculpting everything I want to .

I found some of the new Cernit at Hobby Lobby and I bought it up real quick. I am anxious to try it. I have heard so many good things about it.

I may put a few of my cloth dolls on eBay.

So many ideas, so few hours in the day...
