There she is Friends!!
Above (top, left) is a picture of the “art shed.” Very little has really been done with her yet. Like I said before there was a lot of clutter. The shed was a good place to throw things to get them out of the way in the garage. We have a pole barn but until about three weeks ago I couldn’t store much in there because it wasn’t finished. Since then Husband has finished the trim and door so no more bird poo on all our extra possessions. Now that we have hit winter months I am a bit less enthusiastic about being in the actual shed even though we are having unusually high temps for our region.
So…other areas of organizing. The Attic (bottom, left) has been the center of what Husband calls my hoard. He rarely goes up there and when he does I usually get gripped at for a few minutes. This week I spent some time up there organizing fabric and notions. I was thrilled to see I have several projects with all the items ready for crafting. The picture on the right is a couple filing cabinets I got at a yard sale for $7 each. One drawer is mostly pattern and another is mostly fabric. The other two drawers however are patterns with fabric and notions ready for me to put them together! Yaaayyy!!!
Now …… Drumroll…….
This week’s completed project!!
A customer messaged me through my Etsy store. http://jenniferparkerart.etsy.com She was asking if I could make a bulldog to look like her Mum’s dog for Christmas. She sent me photos of the dog and I made this little girl up. Once she saw the photos she was thrilled and went ahead and bought her. So she is now in route to a new home.
A few notes of the How-to kind
This kit was bought from http://bountifulbaby.com It is a Denise Pratt Princess Pug kit. I use Genesis Heat Set Paints and Costal Scents Powders. I layer Sienna Brown, Titanium White, Burnt Umber, and Mars Black to get her color where I want it. The paints have to be baked in the oven. I do 7 minutes at 265 degrees. Finished off with a matte sealer so the powders stay put.
