Let's Go Halfsies

It's been a super productive week around here. Especially considering the amount of company we've had. OK, I'm a crappy hostess. I paint eyeballs while we chat, I admit it. But I make sure everyone has plenty of blankets and stuff.
Here are the eyeballs (etc.) that I painted this week-
Aren't these little half-girls cute? Maybe it's a little creepy that they're kinda cut in half and all, but at least it's the top half, right? I had too much fun making those tiny hats. The top hat was not as much fun though; paper mache-ing something that small was silly difficult. But I do love how they turned out, and my fingers took turns frolicking around with hats perched atop. I told my fingers that they really needed some sort of finger-puppet attire to be taken seriously, but they're a rebellious lot and love to go around naked.

You can see the whole batch HERE, if you want a closer look.

Hope you're all having a magical Monday.


  1. Oh Jo they are amazing! The cat and pumpkin dolls are my favorite. You are making me long for fall leaves and the smell of pumpkin spice. Halloween is just around the corner.

  2. A productive week? Woman, even on your slowest week you put me to shame! LOL... =D

  3. Jo..

  5. I wish I was half as productive as you!! These are so amazing, especially love the cat!!

  6. You are SOOO good. ahhhh....

  7. Hi JO!
    Love the owl and triple head,,,such expressions!
    How are you doing with the heat that has made many so grouchy in the past week? I know that 80 is not comfortable on the coast, at least that was my experience...but so much better than in the valley,...I imagine they all came to town to get away from the heat, well, tourist season will end in a month and you will be able to drive through town. Wish I was there. Love the Halloween pieces!

  8. Totally fabulous!!! Your productivity amazes me!! They are all spectacular.

  9. Jo, these are terrific. Love how you mixed the monochromatic with just the right tone in color. My favorites are the double headed cat bat and the owl.

  10. These are wonderful!...... And yes, I tend to work while I chat too.... multi-task!!! In fact, I was sewing crepe paper collars in the car ride up to Mt. Ranier with my family over the weekend... Yet, I'm always behind...
    OH well...
