Some befores of the Wallees process, these are my Halloween " Glimmers" the same techniques was used

which I have shaped into a " ball " and apply my clay over it.
If I want a hat or detail, I make a small form out of either foam or wire and tape, then attach it to the "ball" and cover it with clay then let dry overnight.

Truly Thankful...

I love to put a sweet Mary Engelbreit picture on my blog, specific to the holidays that come around, simply because I adore how she captures them with such child-like innocence. While browsing the net trying to find one that was just right, I came upon a wonderful and very touching video about this remarkable woman and her equally remarkable family, I think it captures what being thankful is all about, I'm sure you all will recognize them...


Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday from the Thompson Family and no matter what our circumstances are ,remember just how truly blessed our creator has made us on this day and always.

Well maybe I wasn't ...

so lucky after all...I had a medical issue to take care of these last few weeks due to a shattered kneecap !!!ugh!!! still makes me shudder thinking about it , I slipped on some water in my own kitchen.I'm on the mend and mostly don't need my pain pills anymore,!!!YAY!!!
They made the pain go away but left me so sleepy and unable to really concentrate on doing my art, believe me I tried...

But on a lighter note I won a fantastic candle from my sweet friend April Harres Folky Art Candles it is the Pomegranate scented one, simply gorgeous!!!And my dear friend Edna of Plum Thicket Folk Art sent me a box of wonderful china paints ,just because???!!! She is such a dear sweet lady and both these ladies are talented to boot, so please go visit and tell em' I said Hi!!!
Needless to say no update today...Thank you April and Edna and all my friends for the emails.

Deep in the heart...

of Texas , the stars are not so bright...The fires in Texas are burning figuratively as well as literally, billowing black smoke obscuring and engulfing everything in sight...

Mercifully Magonlia County which is about 34 miles from my home, we could see an orange haze in the distance ,it seems to have about 80% of the fire contained now but Bastrope only 30%....Please keep them in your prayers.

A late entry for the STJ update tonight
An"geli"que is a "Dynkie Angel"

Joyful Song

Let's lift our voice in song
and bow our head to pray.
The joyful song of faith
sent sweetly on it's way.
With words of praise and glory
For The One who made this day.
by Flora Thompson

So sorry but didn't have time to do WIPS of the whole process just the usual stuff, from cutting the foam then rolling out the clay and applying it to the foam base.
More later , SEE YA!!!
