So very honored

In this life of internet we get to "meet" many people through the comfort of our favorite chair. We chat with them about art, everyday woes, and special moments. The special moments seem to be the ones that visit less frequently but which makes them all the more special.

Even though it is very difficult at times to really get to know someone through this invisible barrier sometimes we feel a special friendship or kinship.

Sonia of the is one of those special people that I have had the pleasure of getting to know a wee bit through her postings, sweet comments and wonderful sculptures. She stops by often and always with a smile and encouraging word. Thank you for that Sonia.

Sonia bestowed me with a award. A honor and I gladly accept it. She said and I quote"
10. Pea....Oh you always make me laugh..and inspire me with your determination."

I am not really sure what she meant by... inspiring her with my determination but I will take it! I love that I can inspire someone. It makes me feel like I am giving something without even trying. LOL Doing and not working at it is always a GOOD THING!

So this is the award and I will pass this on to a few people. These people honor me with their friendship, spirit and guide me when I feel lost. There are a few that will not be listed but you know who you are...T~, GYW~ and MO. These are in no special order.

Baa baa black sheep

Have you any wool? yes, sir two bags full. Oh if you haven't purchased the new wool from Ann of Crowing About Primitives then you need to rush over there as I think this stuff is limited and oh so wonderful.

It is black, curly and very, very soft. I had to have some for one of my future creations but you will have to trust me on this one. She has some other wools there that are wonderful as well. There is a sale as well so hurry scurry as my daughter says.
I am off to create a new creation. The deadlines are all sneaking up on me.
Have a wonderful week poppets.

Binky Bunnies

Yes, I have actually been working. Not the slacker that I sometimes appear to be. LOL
I had a special order from a very dear friend from church. She wanted 2 binky bunnies to represent her two daughters. One daughter has pretty blue eyes and the other big brown eyes with flecks of golden sunshine. So I made 2 little bunnies in fabrics that she picked from my stash pile. She wanted them to be different but have a few things in common after all they are sisters. Funny though when I gave them to her we found out the the doll for the older sister was just a wee bit taller. Purely by accident. I guess that was a higher power at work because the same pattern was traced and sewn. Isn't funny how each doll we make takes on a life of it's own. I am happy with them and so is the owner. They are really very sweet. I suck at taking pictures and I know you all probably know it. LOL I promise ya it is something I am working on. My dolls are so much better in person.

These bunnies really took on the look of the girls. Well the eyes anyway. After all I don't remember seeing long wired ears on either of them. LOL

So now I am working on new stuff for the sites. Infact I want to go to the studio for a few hours. I have to hit the hay early as there is church in the am. I didn't go last week or the week before. Naughty Pea was spending some much needed time resting and playing hookie with Mr. Peabody. So I best not be a heathen any longer and get to church. LOL
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Bought myself a present

It isn't very often that I buy myself something other then supplies. I buy supplies often and sometimes too often.*wink*
I love art. All kinds really but folk art and especially for Halloween is my favorite. I have made many pieces of art over the years and have only kept 3. Two are for halloween and the other is a snowman I will never part with.
So when a good deal comes around from a artist that I admire I snag it up. It is almost always Halloween. This time it came early for me. I had seen Tonya I fell for the spooky one.

I had to have it and was a good deal too. I got it yesterday and it is so wonderful. You can't see all the details until you get it in your hot little hands. LOL It will look perfect with a stitchery I did up a few years ago. For now it is hanging in my room. I am enjoying it along with a few of my other special art pieces.
She also sent along some paper pretties for me to enjoy. Everything was wrapped so very nice. She is a excellent wrapper. Thank goodness to cause it looked like the some Post office on the way drop kicked my box. I kid you not.!
well I have to go finish up some bunnies. One is done and the other is so very close. Don't fret I will share tomorrow. Then must get moving on other things. So many projects so little time.
Have a excellent day.

Oh she is done and down right eery don't ya think? Is she what you thought she would be? There were a few that had the right direction but I bet you all thought it was a doll? I wanted to do a small piece for ebay this time. Been awhile since I have had my feet wet on EBAY.
I think she is very neat and am proud of this piece. She certainly gave me a run for my money. I was trying to get this sweet side to come out of a spooky girl. Sweet and spooky kinda like sweet and sour. LOL I have her listed on ebay for 5 days.
Go take a peek now that I just teased ya...
Have a wonderful day. Back to the laboratory.. Egor is calling.. More Power Egor, More Power....

Just a wee little teaser

I am working on a new piece for a new collection. The Collection will be called Hallowed Hauntings.
I was working hard last night on this piece and then my thoughts starting rhyming. So I thought what a perfect way to get you thinking about what this piece could be or look like. I finished the poem in about a half hour which is NOt the norm for me.
Now tell me what you think it might be or look like based on this poem. Tee hee. This should be lots of fun.

Sneak Peek

Just a few peeks of my latest creation for Pfatt Marketplace
This piece speaks to my heart. Named after a song that Daddy and I used to enjoy.
PFATT will be launched tonight at Midnight.

My gosh will you look at the time? I laid down to take a little nap earlier after supper. I had a headache and the next thing I know it is one AM. So now what? I am up and awake for at least a few hours. I think I will check my email and go back to bed. Start the day over a little later *giggle*..
Nighty, night my friends.

Yesterday Mr. Peabody and I went out to Scenic beach and walked along for a bit of a quiet break. It was so very nice. There is this old Craftsman style house up there called the Emel House. It was built back in 1912. It is awesome. I love the stone fireplace, porch and the view is stunning. I will share more pics later. Just a few today.

We took some photos and chatted. So very relaxing. Yep, skipped church so we will be heathen's for another week. LOL

Went to Home depot afterwards and got a few plants. Just some herbs and a couple bell peppers to start. Hope to plant those in a day or two when the weather clears up.
I have to pack it all up tonight to hit the show. I set up tomorrow and it starts on Thursdays. Hoping it is a good weekend.
This is the latest piece I created for the show. Just something small and fun.

Have a wonderful week and I will post updates soon.
