Chrono Seidh


I recently visited a watch repair shop and came upon a Chrono Seidh (pronounced "seed"), one of the Tribe of Other Folk that used to live in the Forest, but have become fascinated with timepieces and mechanical things.

These tiny fae will dwell in any type of clockcase they can find, but are especially fond of pocketwatches. Chrono Seidh can be very helpful in watch repair, as they can repair the tiny works without need for tools!

UFO Challenge


Here's my UFO Challenge piece from April...you can see Ruby-in-Progress here. Ruby is currently featured on my SpookyTime Jingles sale page. She's built on a simple armature, and is very posable, so she can be made as "floaty" as one wishes...

Another Award! Thanx Marie...

Marie Segal has gifted me with another award...thanx sweetie! Smoochies...


The Renee award was created by Bella and Ces in honour of their friend Renee.

Bella says, "This is a brand new award and I have the pleasure and honor of spreading the seed, watching it grow. I hope it finds its way to those who are like Renee: the acorn, a small package becoming a tall and sturdy oak, giving more acorns, becoming tall and sturdy oaks, giving acorns..."

I've never really seen myself this way...funny how one's self-image can be so very different than the way others see us.

Surgery Update...


It's a bit of a rough go -- there were three procedures altogether. Trim and repair torn meniscus, replace anterior cruciate ligament, smooth damage done by rheumatoid arthritis to the large bone in the lower leg -- it's the last that is causing the most pain. And the pain meds are making me sick.

Anyone got some cheese to go with my whine? LOL

15 April 2009

Finally Getting Fixed!!


Video games, anyone?

The surgery on my knee has been scheduled for 930am tomorrow morning. I more than likely will be offline all weekend, but I'll type to y'all as soon as I can. Think good thoughts!

29 Years!?


Wow, I've been friends with Jim Keast for a loooooong time! As a matter of fact, Jim was with me when I bought my first box of Super Sculpey. We used to spend hours drawing, sculpting and watercoloring...the good old days! I really miss having a studio partner.



So anyways, y'all gotta go check out Mr. Jim's art! Find him at Fairy Art and More, or look for his work on eBay...you'll be glad you did.

C'iao for now!

Mikey Sculpts Fantasy


I have been watching Mikey O'Connell on eBay for a couple of years, because I'm completely in love with his li'l witches!! Lately, he's been making the most wonderful odd fae -- is it any wonder we've become friends?!

These quirky gnomes'n'such are just brimming with personality, and Mikey's costuming (he has a theatrical background) is all a forest dweller could want...check out Mikey's website, and look for Fantasy Sculpts auctions on eBay.

Proximidade!



I have been gifted with an award by Tina von Weisen...! Thanx so much, Tina!

Upon receipt, I am to post the meaning of this award, and pay it forward to eight other artists -- so here's the skinny...

"This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY -- nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement! Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these blogs!”

It was REALLY hard to narrow this list down to only eight! I wonder if it's acceptable to give the award more than ONCE...?
