new work, confessions, and appreciation...

good wednesday morning everyone!

i gave you all a little sneak peek yesterday at some all hallow's eve pieces i've been working on , so today i thought i would go whole hog and show you pretty much everything!
mwaaa haa haaa....

wee devil figurines. they are about 3" tall by 2" wide. sweet, sly, mischievous little things they are.

wonder what she's thinking? i know... it's when is the 5th season of SUPERNATURAL going to be available on dvd. i've been wondering that myself, little miss!

wee black cat figurines. same size as the devils. these are available in my ETSY shop.

they are my favorites to make- and my black cat, cash enjoys helping me...

more wee black cats - but with a "twist". i experimented and placed halloween-ish words on their fronts ( thanks to nichola of  knickertwist's for the words ). i'm still not sure whether words are my style or not, but i thought " why not mix things up a bit".... so, the jury's still out on that one....

party pumpkin figurine. he's a little bigger than the wee pieces, but not as big as the large figurines. i will have to measure him. i thought he turned out well, and will be available here in new orleans at PLUM starting next month.

the crackle on him, just came out wonderfully! couldn't have been happier!

i guess that's it for new work - for now.
i have some wee dia de los muertos couples ready to go in the shop, some halloween party girls, and a marie antoinette getting ready to be antiqued. the girls will be staying here but marie is going in the ETSY shop.
i am afraid to list anything with a paper hat in the shop. scared silly to try and ship it, lets it should come off in transit...

in other news... my HARRY POTTER book club meets tonight. i know. nerd.
 but, it's a chance to sip some wine and talk about my favorite books of all time with grown ups! ha ha! where's my wand?...

and i was lucky enough to be awarded a versatile blogger award


from annalee at ABSYNTHE & ARSENIC. i'm seriously poor at passing these on, but i wanted to post it here and say " thankee" to annalee for thinking enough of my little corner of the blog-o-verse to bestow such an award on little ole me.
so thankee!!

and now i will tell you seven things about myself that you may or may not know - and may or may not want to know:

1- i cannot and will not function without a cup of coffee first thing in the morning. and i drink the good stuff - yerka chaffe. but, now, alas, it is no longer available at whole foods...

2 - i have broken out in hives every time i've tried dating a man i wasn't interested in. mr. b checks every few months ( 5 years together, now ) to make sure i'm not itchy....and i'm not.

3 - i have a sociology degree and a psychology minor. would you like fries with that?

4- my favorite bands are the tragically hip and the decemberists, but my favorite "album" is the soundtrack from amelie

5 - i will always buy craft supplies before clothes

6 - i've been fired from more jobs than i've quit

7 - i have a not so secret passion for caviar. and again, i like the good stuff!

i guess that's about it for today....

have a great hump day everyone!

omg... the black cats make me squee! =D

I love your 'seven things'! ^-^
It's tragic that whole foods no longer sells your coffee! I hope you are able to find it elsewhere! Must. Have. Coffee... @_@

Hope you're having a good week! ^-^
