Whipped this up for a masquerade party. I did a Google image search for "fox mask", found one I liked and adapted it to my materials.
Now it adorns a lampshade in my art room.
What did you make this weekend?

Samhain (pronounced sow-wen) falls on October 31. It is a day to honor the ancestors, celebrate the final harvest and prepare for the coming winter.
It is traditional to set an extra place at the table for your recently departed. This year we will be welcoming my Nana. It's a good opportunity to talk with the kids about our family history and to lift the curtain on death. It has become so separated from living that we tend to forget that it is the natural order of things.
We still participate in the secular Halloween- it is fun and fun is good!

I am still loving the polymer clay, but my art time is currently being used to create a stole for an interfaith minister. Ah embroidery! It's like drawing but with thread. Also, have I told you about my new sewing machine? It's a Singer. I have never sewn on a Singer before. HOLY HOLY HOLY. It's like driving a sportscar--all precision and engineering. If I could physically purr, I would.

Just returned home from a 2,000 mile road trip. I have SO MANY ideas, and so many photos to look through.
However, my studio is an ungodly mess. It would possibly qualify in my father's scale of cleanliness as a "rat's nest"--which is a mere 3 steps away from "trash heap".
I am cleaning one corner as I am working in another. Hopefully I can slog through the cleaning today and get back to the full-on
My TO DO list floweth over.
