Thinking inside the box...

I made a number of heArt journals for my upcoming "From the Heart" exhibit with Pamela Larkin Caruso.  I needed something to hold the journals for display purposes.  I taped together some cardboard; said a few magic words and voila!

The journals fit inside perfectly.  I love it.

She has a Real Head for Figures...

Making plaster pots and vessels makes me very happy.  I never know what will emerge...

"She has a Real Head for Figures" - I'm no math whiz that's for sure!

"Brush Cut" holds my brushes, of course!

Some Strings Attached....

Pinocchio, Pinocchio, where are thou Pinocchio?  My dear puppet hangs on my studio wall above my desk.  He is my favorite thing I brought home from Prague.

I love surprises - don't you?

The other day I came across a website called Darn Good Yarn.  It has wonderful yarns made of silk saris and other fibers.  I had to order something, of course!  It arrived today.

Gift wrapped no less.  The tag says "Be good, but more importantly do good.  Kensie Kate packed with love by Amanda."

The next surprise will be what I do with these yummy fibers - loads of possibilities.

small bundles

I had notecards printed up from my original drawings.  I'm tying them into small bundles to offer for sale.

My texture "Mashed Potatoes" added over original photos.

Red Hot...

These beautiful peppers and garlic are putting me in the mood to make some chili.  I'm getting tired of leftover turkey!

Original photos taken at a street market in Vienna.

"Jute" texture added to both photos.
