Spring is around the corner!

Welcome to my blog! As I type, studio cat #2, Apollo, is perched on my printer gazing longingly into the back yard. The bulbs are up and a few perennial's have braved our cold western Washington spring to poke their heads up. Hopefully I can now start planting a few things, starting with the peas, they are pretty tough and should be OK. ArtFest starts on Wednesday, hooray! The excitement is at a fever pitch on the Yahoo group. My art supplies has been organized and re-organized several times now. Husband seems to think I will need a tractor trailer to haul them but I have managed to corral them into a managable pile. All my trades are done and I am going to try and be ambitous and make something to display in the gallery. Trades this are shrink plastic charms, here are a few of them:


They were great fun to make, the clear shrink plastic gives a beautiful translucence, which you can't really see here, but when held up to the light they look like sea glass. I now have lots of ideas for future projects, maybe some articulated dolls or miniature books with plastic covers?

If you add some of your interests in the interest part of the profile, it can connect you to others whose blogs might complement yours. Click on the interst links and a list comes up. (I just discovered that last night and I have been blogging for nearly two years.)
