I am participating in a holiday sale this year with many other artists! It will be in Seattle Washington-- Ballard -- and you can get all the details here!
Monday November 14th 2005
I always want to show you everything I make, but of course this time of year I am starting to make holiday gifts. So I will have to hold off on sharing pictures of some things. I don't want to spoil anyone's surprise! For instance, I was waiting to show you this shawl.. I made it for my twin sister's birthday. But now she has seen it so it's safe to share the photos! Click Thumbnails. ALSO-- I have lots of goodies for sale in my online shop and etsy shop--see the links above--if you are in the mood for a little holiday shopping! Finally, I will be participating in a arts and crafts sale in Ballard on Dec 3rd. If you are in the Seattle area, please stop by! Details to come!

So, yesterday I gathered up all my artsy supplies in a pile (see below) and started in making stuff. That is several projects, of course. I did not get as much done as I wanted, I never do, but I did make 3 wee little acorns, now available in my Etsy Shop and I also made a pumpkin pie. (Not pictured!) The acorns are wool felt with crocheted hats. Click thumnbails.

I drew these herons last night... 4x4" each and pen and ink on some nice pale blue cardstock. I like to use micron pigma pens. For these 2 I used 005, 01, and 02. I grew up on Vashon Island and loved to watch the herons fishing in the harbor every morning on my way to school. These are listed on ebay. This weekend I am planning to make wee little critters, birds, etc. So if you have any specific wee desires now would be a good time to email me! As always, click thumbnails for a better view. Also!

I started this shawl on a 2 hour car ride on September 10th. Since then I have worked on it mostly in waiting rooms, in the car, on buses, during my breaks at work. etc. I have spent a little time at home, but most of it has been time I would squirming with boredom! I finished it and added the fringe last weekend. There are about 20 different yarns used, mostly wool. I am quite pleased with the result.

Well, the Pink Auctions to benefit Breast Cancer Research have begun on eBay and you can see them all here. Remember, your small actions can change the world. You can bid on these auctions or find out how to donate artwork yourself. Take a look over the next 2 weeks, as more auctions will be added. I know sometimes we all feel helpless in the face of hardships such as cancer, but together we can all make a difference in our small way.
Thursday October 14th 2004
I need to update more often.. I have some recent art to share.. I will try to update this weekend. Good news! The mermaid doll got into the Absolutely Beads show, more info on that and more photos to come. Also I have donated a necklace and a brooch to Pink Auctions, an online auction to benefit breast cancer research. Visit the website and keep visiting for updates.. it will tell you how to donate and how to bid! I donated a couple pieces to another auction to benefit a woman's shelter and the woman of juarez, more details on that when i have them.
Normally my sales are up in the pre-holiday season, but that is sadly not at all the case this year, probably due to the poor economy and the focus on the elections. A good time to donate art, I say!

Sorry no updates in a while! There are a few updates on the mysterium page. The Selkie zine is available in a day or 2. If you subscribe to Mysterium you will be getting a gift copy, otherwise you can order on that page.
Issue 9 will be the last issue of Mysterium, and you can preorder it there also, if you wish. It will be out in late October or early November. There is still time to submit art dolls for issue 9--through early October. Articles are welcome also.
I am finishing up the mermaid doll for the Absolutely Beads show, you'll see that here soon! And I found out I did not get into the Land of Odds show, which was disapointing, but I did enjoy making my 5 Seasons Dolls. I have heard that Lark's 500 Beaded objects is out, which I have work in, but I have not seen a copy yet. I don't know if I mentioned but I am also in the Summer Art Doll Quarterly (back cover Fire Mountain Ad,) and the Autumn Belle Armoire (Button Article with Robin Atkins.) And I promise, more art here soon, and lots of work to be added to the FOR SALE page. I have lots of paintings and small beaded items (mostly brooches and necklaces) that I will be offering for sale -- just in time for the holidays! email me with any questions!

& the back of winter is progressing. i need to do SOMETHING other than panic about moving (10 days now!) Also here are 2 bone faces--experimenting with some new techniques of embellishment. They started out completely white but I removed the finish with hot lemon juice, dyed with tea, accented eyes and features with walnut ink, further embellished with prismacolor colored pencils, and sealed with fixative to prevent the pencils from smearing.

In the meanwhile I just finished a Summer Doll to go with the Spring doll I made earlier this year. Below are some pictures of her and of her with Spring. click thumnails. I just started Autumn. I am feeling a bit burnt out in general, I guess I will settle down and be more creative after the move! Also working on the bonus issue of Mysterium -- the theme is Selkies.
