A giving spirit....

Kristine Hudson of Kitch~n~Sink Studio definitely has one! (Dontcha just love her blog name?) She has awarded her friends with this new award.
It is a True Award, one without rules or further obligations. So if you see this post..take it and share it, or just simply ignore it!!Now I am compelled without obligation, only a giving spirit, to spread a little appreciation to others who maybe could use a Pick me up today!;-)
But I think I'll just keep it here for a while, unless someone would like to share then y'all are more than welcomed to do so!
I can get used to this kind of award...

More Snow Please

Twinkle looked to the sky and said
“ More snow please “
Sky nodded and shook, then down
came the snow.
Swirling and twirling and landing
Quietly falling with beauty and ease,
As it covered the ground and
the tops of the trees.
Sky smiles, Twinkle grins, quite
happy by all that he see’s.

Just one more to squeeze in! This is my last one for the November offering on SpookyTimeJingles Twinkles is an unopened smooth mixed -media ornamental gourd. There's a little more to read at the site if you are interested... So go
I'm gonna have to maybe not make a poem for all these little guys anymore! It's just one more thing that I don't think I want to worry and fuss over anymore. Sometimes they just pop out and other times it's just a long drawn out process, those are the ones that are a bother..obviously! Goodnight.

Lighting and angles...

Can make all the difference in the world...that and a ton of scrapbooking papers!
I wasn't too pleased with the way the last pic's I took of my bobble-head frost fairy had come out, so I gave it one more try and I think the lighter background helped her tremendously! So what do ya think?...well I like!
She is also up for the SpookyTimeJingles Nov. offering...Just can't wait to see ya there, so hurry up and don't be late!!!

My Window...

From my window, I can see,
Moonbeams playing in a tree.
From my window, I can see,
Starlight dancing merrily!
From my window I can see,
The silver moon sweetly
Smiling…down at me.
by Flora Thompson

My newest offerings for Nov. on SpookyTimeJingles Get on over and look at all the sights, I'm sure you'll find something that delights!....The clock is ticking.

Little bitties...

Are often hard to make because they strain these old eyes, but are so cute once done:

Some don't often come out like I plan but I do try:

These are mostly made of "Apoxie Sculpt" over a wire armature.

This is too too funny ...I have been getting all these hits from many countries on my blogging about hurricane Ike? The only thing is that I used " One wild and crazy night" which I thought was a witty title, so I googled it to see what the fuss was all about and......OMG!!!!!!!are you getting the picture? Yes,... it's a porn title for pervs!!!!!! I really do have to be a little more careful and original for my choice of titles anymore!!! hahahah!!!
