A Wednesday Child

On Wednesday, January 20, 1954 my moma brought me into this world.

This is baby me.....blowing baby bubbles as my daddy took my picture.

and this is present day me....who still enjoys blowing bubbles

Today I celebrate my birthday! Fifty six candles will be alot to blow out! LOL!!!

Monday, January 11, 2010's a sneek peek!

For the new year I've learned some new techiniques that I'm very excited to show you.
SpookyTimeJingles will update on Jan. 13 (at midnight just as the clock ticks into the 13th EST) and in addition to the usual Halloween and Christmas art, there will be art for Valentines Day!!!

Here's a preview of what you'll see on my page.

In addition to sculpted clay, I've added wool needle felting and the "seldom seen" sculpted spun cotton!
So start the New Year off right and come by and have a look for yourself.

Ringing in the New Year with Spun Cotton

I'm feeling really good about my latest attempts at creating these spun cotton ornaments. I've taken "clouds" of cotton and "sculpted" it into a collection of ornaments.

This snowman titled, "Ringing in the New Year", is quite appropriate for the start of 2010. His features are sculpted into the cotton and the cotton batting scarf and sculpted hat are hand dyed.

Look for him on my Christmas page at SpookytimeJingles for part of my January 13th update.

Baby it's COLD outside!!!

Part of my daily routine is to get outside for my exercise walk, which is usually 4 miles, each day. I find it clears the mind and inspires me, so if I don't go I get into a creative slump.

Call me a Yeti, Sasquatch,...but it's COLD and WINDY here in our little part of the country this winter.

I had to find the right layering to deal with this cold....and the hat really works...
so if you happen to see this figure out walking, don't be's only me!
