Epoxy Sculpt Trial

I wanted to try Epoxy Sculpt because I wanted options.  I bought it months ago and forgot about it.  I found it and decided to give it a try.  It is smooth, great texture and no long wait times.  I love Creative Paper Clay but the wait times really make it hard for me to hang with it. I like to finish my projects when I am in the mood. So far this stuff is great. I added a pic below.  I will have to give it a few more tests but so far I love it.

This is my new heads so far

New Painting Today

It has been a very long time since I actually planned a painting. I don't know why.  I love to paint but my dolls have taken over my life it seems, LOL. Today I sat them aside to work on a rather large painting and really enjoyed it.  It is a little girl with stringy hair and a white mask. She hands up a golden flower to a sleeping moon as the stars look all around her.  It is a rather serene scene with all the secrecy and confusion that goes with the unexplained.  Take a look and see what you think.  Any reviews would be helpful.

Beautiful Magazine for the Creative Spirit

I have recently come across a wonderfully creative magazine for doll makers to browse. The costumes are exquisite and since that seems to be the hardest part of the process for me this magazine is so inspirational.  I have spent hours browsing the glossy pages of beauty and fantasy.
I have included a link for any who would like to see.

Halloween is almost here!!

Fall is here, a chill in the air and you can almost hear the crones giggling in the woods.  This is one of my favorite times of year.  I love getting ready for Halloween. It brings my business to a halt as I focus on my house and the fun of the season.  I have pieced together my first quilt and look forward to added pics here as soon as it is put together. I have discovered the Boney Bunch by Yankee candle and just love them.

Craft Fair Ideas and Tips

I have spent the last few weeks working like a mad woman to get ready for the Berea Spring Art Fair at the Indian Fort Theatre.  It has been a lot of fun but also very stressful and expensive.  I had to purchase a tent and many other items such as tables for the first time.  These are a one time expense but an expense none the less.  I have spent countless hours on Pinterest looking for ideas and cool displays.  I ran across this pin that has tons of Art Fair advise and wanted to share it.  It is an extensive list that should take me the rest of the week to read with my nursing schedule.

Have fun.

What does a cat dress up as on Halloween?  A black cat of course!  And no cat costume would be perfect without his best buddy in a mask.  His blue bird dons a little black face mask to join him this year.  
This sculpture is made of polymer clay and measures 11.5 inches tall.  

If you have any questions please email me. I work 3rd shift so I will be checking through out the morning. Goes live at 12 midnight tonight

It has been many years since I added items to PFatt Marketplace.  At that time I was working under the name Nanny Norton Prims doing extreme primitive dolls.  I have changed a lot over the years and evolved into more mediums and a more whimsical style. I decided to rejoin the wonderful PFatt Markeplace community and have already spoken to some wonderful vendors.  It is a terrific venue and they have wonderful items.  Here is a link to take a peek at all the goodies.

Beer Buddies Refrigerator Magnets

I love goofy magnets and I love to drink beer and I have both a beer and a wine fridge. So it was an easy decision to make some goofy magnets to go on the front of the fridge.  Have you ever gotten to the fridge after a few beers and stopped just to steady yourself long enough to pull the door open?  Well I know the feeling and these little guys are there to cheer you on.  Sometimes I need that pep talk before I grab another cold Mich Ultra from the caverns of the frozen tundra.  If you don't drink you could use them to talk you down from that coconut cream pie. Either way they are a necessity in todays hectic life.
