My Sister & Me

~Well~ I sold one ornament at the craft fair~ It was at a school & it was the first year they had this fair~ Bottom line~ there were not that many people there. ~But~ I had a wonderful time anyway. Did I mention that it was my big sister, that signed me up for the fair? Bridget is an actress~ but~ a very artsy, crafty kinda gal.She made Muses ~ they are beautiful & so full of soul. Here is one ~ they are mixed media~ collage~ angel~ muses~I love them~ She sold two.
But~ the hot seller of the evening was Rowan(my 8 year old)~ who grabbed one of my boxes of beads as we were leaving and set up shop right there on the spot. She started whipping out beaded necklaces.
And sold everyone for a dollar! She made six dollars :)
~It was very nice setting and talking & laughing with my sis.~ And~ watching Rowan wheel & deal~ she is quite the little sales girl~
~So, I will be listing my little~ Christmas Friends~ in my Etsy shop tomorrow~ I just love these little guys~ they really do come to life as you work on them & I get attached to them, as they let you know who they are & how they should look. Like that little white kitty up there. First she was black, but that didn't look right, so I painted her w/ white paint, Then made her a gray tabby, no that didn't look right, back to white, then I tried orange kitty, no~ back to white to start over again. As I sat there looking at her~ "Oh, I am sorry" "Your a little white kitty"~ silly me~ "Why didn't you say so in the first place?" :)
~ Oh, what very silly buggers we artists are~

~A Christmas Photo Shoot~

~I hope everyone has had a lovely Thanksgiving!~
We really did~ all of it was just delicious~ the family~ the friends~ oh & the food.~

~sadly at this point, I cannot share the portrait work I have been doing~ I don't want to ruin any Christmas Surprises~

~But~ i can share what I have been up to in the evenings.~ While watching all my favorite Christmas Shows~
~I have been a busy little elf too~
~So, without further ado~ I would like to introduce, just few of my "Little Christmas Friends"~ I love them~
as I work on each one, they reveal to me their little Christmas spirits.~ They are my little ornaments~ I have made many over the years~ but, this year, they just keep coming.~
I love dressing them in all the glitter & color, ribbons & bows.
~ They are going to a craft fair this weekend. And, who ever is left will be put in my etsy shop or ebay.~
I didn't have time to give them a proper photo shoot~ but, I will take better pictures before they leave this house on Friday.~
~Merry Christmas!~
