A Little Late, but…. Happy Thanksgiving!

I just got my computer back from the MAC doctors!! It’s been 3 weeks since we had a little “accident” here with my computer… Let’s just say it involved an overly enthusiastic kitty that wanted to snuggle & a cup of coffee…. sigh…

But I just wanted to wish everybody a LATE Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you all had a great weekend with lots of food & family!

I had a great weekend that also included the purchase of my new CRAFT BOOTH MOBILE! After trying to do some craft shows last year and trying to fit everything into my little old bug, I decided that I needed an upgrade! This is my new ride! It’s super nice & I’m loving it so far! Now I can do some future shows in style!!

Cheery Cherry, Cherry Blossoms – New Needle Felt!

I finally finished a new Needle Felted Sculpture!! YEA!!

CC Blossom 6 600x600 Cheery Cherry, Cherry Blossoms   New Needle Felt!

Cheery Cherry, Cherry Blossom Needle Felted Sculpture

I made this little guy for the Etsy Plush Team’s summer challenge “A Virtual Fruit Bowl”. I was inspired cause I wish Cherry Blossom Trees grew Cherries!! He’s made of 100% needle felted wool that is shadowed with chalk pastels. The cherry blossom branch is made of sculpted and painted paper clay over a paper-mache base. And the blossoms are cut wool with painted details!

This little guy is available in the Etsy Plush Team’s Shop!!

Scenic Foam Sculpting Gallery!

Trying everyday to make a little productive progress in my little business!! So today is the start of updating & redesigning my website…. I just added a “Professional Scenic Sculpting” Gallery! These are just a few picts of what I do during my “day job”.  (I totally have more to add, it’s just tedious & I figured I do more later!!)

I’ve worked on projects ranging from movies, to theme park rides, to musical stage sets, to television and commercials, to decorative retail pieces, to themed party props…. I probably can’t even remember some!!

So click over to my new Gallery page & enjoy!

I’m looking forward to being more active in my crafty community! It’s been a while, but everyday (mostly) I’m feeling more motivated & creative, especially being inspired by some AMAZING artists!!

Back to Business… again…

Always Sugar Coated Open Back to Business... again...

So I’m finally back from 2 months in Detroit, making some “movie magic”. So happy to be home! I’ve been working on location for 6 of the last 8 months, and I’m ready to have some down time to work on SOOOO many projects I have on my mind!

Spent a week of R&R, then the Hubby and I shot off to Las Vegas for a vacation that I’ve needed for a while (but I think we need a vaca from our vaca cause doing Vegas for 5 days is actually quite exhausting). The highlight of the trip was the Neon Sign Museum!! It was fantastic & I definitely recommend taking the tour (day or night, they are both awesome!)

But I’m ready to get back into the swing of things! I’ve got a show booked for November – Designer Con – although I’m a little scared that I won’t have any new work for the show or that I’ll get called away again and be gone… juggling the 2 is so hard… cause I know if I cancel the show right now, I won’t get anymore work for like a year… but if I don’t, I’ll be gone for the rest of the year…. sigh…

But got some fun projects to share & some cool announcements to make in the near future!!

It’s good to be back!!
