3D ART- Going off the Page!

For those of you who are lucky enough to have the Nov/Dec 2008 issue of Cloth, Paper Scissors,  check out the fabulous article written by Sue Pettetier on making Sparkling Snowmen.  She gives great instructions on how to make these adorable little snowmen using vintage bottles.  Or even better - I just found out that she has just made this fun project available online!
Last night with my daughters, friends and a little bit of wine, we created a whole family of vintage bottle snowmen.

Lots of fun, lots of glitter and laughter!
Where did my wine go?
Even my husband came in to see what we were doing.  He did not quite "get it" that we were making snowmen so he make a Santa head and put it on his version of a snowman's body which was a bottle filled with watered down wine.  Honestly! MEN!

New Article for the Cloth, Paper Scissors Magazine

The box is packed and ready to ship.  Sample postcards are carefully wrapped and example art supplies are in their separate zip-locked baggie.  I even put in some Hershey's kisses for the editors.  My article, Painted Postcards is ready to go and will be published in the Cloth, Paper Scissors magazine - March/April 2013 issue.  It took longer than expected to create all the samples required for the article but it was so much fun to do.  I hope you will read the article when it is published next year!

Having Fun with Faceless Self-Portraits

I find it fun to find new and creative ways to take faceless self-portraits photos while traveling.  Have you ever done the same?  I would love to hear what you do.  Here are a few of mine:

Hurricane Sandy

Dear artists and friends,
My heartfelt thoughts go out to all the folks affected by Hurricane Sandy, artists and beyond.  The devastation that we are receiving on the news is incredible!  We have lived through devastating hurricanes doing damage to the areas we love - the tropics, New Orleans, and now the east coast.  Watching the news and seeing the photos of the damage is unbelievable.  I wonder where the newly homeless go and how do they eat.  How does one clean up such all the debris, broken bits, sand and toxic waste?
