It's been a minute. . .

Hi Everybody!

Guess I haven't been around here for awhile, huh? Wow, five years! 
How quickly can I sum up 5 years? Let's see if I can do it in 5 sentences...

Met Doc. Fell head over feet in love (which was very brave). Remodeled his RV and made it our Cart, complete with a tiny art studio for me. Got married! Hit the road.

We've been married now for 2 years, and been on the road for a year and a half. We're workamping. If you don't know what that is, neither did I, but Doc had been doing it for 5 years before we met and loves it. We started out in Olympia, WA and took our sweet time getting to Minnesota to spend Spring/Summer of 2022. We spent the Fall/Winter of 2023 in Shenandoah Valley in Virginia, then we headed to Main for this Spring/Summer. We're about to leave Freeport and head to San Antonia, Texas for the winter. I'll go back into details at some point I'm sure, but consider yourselves all caught up.

I'm gonna have to find my way around Bloglandia again, but I'm wanting start blogging again. I've missed it.

Anyway, hi!

I'll be back with pictures.


The Latest Silliness

Here in the Pacific Northwest there are 4 seasons. Not exactly Autumn, Winter, Spring, Summer in a traditional American postcard sense, but 4 nonetheless. Here, the seasons are more like Spider, Mud, Mold, and Summer. We are in Spider season at the moment, and the 8-legged beasties are plentiful! Arachnophobes beware! In between getting caught in invisible webs and doing weird little dances, I've managed to add 2 new pieces to the menagerie. 

Meet Gemini. These punkin-headed twins share everything, even a name. I was going for Burlesque meets Victorian meets Circus with this pair. They're bigger than my usual fare, standing almost 18 inches tall.

And they're a bit cheeky.

And secondly is a Halloween Parade of sorts. I salvaged a handful of little antique drawers about a year ago and have been waiting for inspiration. Ta-dah!
The skeleton is my favorite. I'm gonna have to make more like him.

Well, back to the work table... 
See ya soon!


I'm back!

Hi everybody!
I've missed you!
Let's just jump right in, shall we?
I thought it would be fun to pick a subject (in this case, devils) and do a bunch of variations on that theme. That way I get to play with lots of different stuff (in this case, clay and wood and cloth and paper and paint). Here's the first batch:

That last trio was cut out of reclaimed 1/2 inch plywood, carved a bit around the edges, and painted up all pretty. They're pretty big, like bigger than the average head. I think it'd be fun to get them printed onto fabric and make some pillows and ornaments out of them, so that's on my list. In the meantime, you can get the originals here.

I'm thinking I'll make Black Cats and Jack-o-Lanterns next. Wheeee! 

I'll be back soon.
