Show, Tell and Share

Hello Dear Bloggy Friends!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I'm thrilled that I was able to finally finish up the Snowy Quartet....

You remember, right?  They looked like this.....

 
They've come a long way....and after a few color changes and lots and lots of layers of paint, they are ready for their big reveal ;)
 
We'll start with Mr. Shivers.
 
 
 
With his bright blue eyes and Santa cap, he's all set for the Season.  I just love the way the crackle medium lends such a wonderful vintage look to the sculptures.
 
This is Topper.
 
 
He sure is a sweetie....and more delicious crackling!
 
 
Next up is a snowman bust (is it wrong that the word bust makes me giggle....heehee) entitled "Winter Wishes".
 
 
It's hard to see in the photos, but the front of that star is completely covered in sparkles :)
 
 
Last, but not least, is a little bird loving Snowman.
I haven't decided on a name for him yet.
 
 
I chose not to crackle him so his colors would be more vibrant and his look more whimsical.
 
 
That fabric around his neck is beautiful....it has birds on it!  I got this when I did a  fantabulous fabric swap with my friend, Heather.  I love the fabric so much, I made heart pillow ornaments from it, too :)

 
These are all in the shop, if you see something you like :)
 
I wanted to quickly pass along some neat things to you, just in case you didn't know about them.
 
Kim Klassen is offering a FREE mini course to help you learn to use Photoshop Elements better.  Here is the LINK to find out more.  Her textures are amazing!
 
Also, Strathmore (the paper company) is offering free classes, once again, for 2013.  You can find out about those, HERE.
 
Lastly, there is a woman named Kitty Hockman who runs an animal sanctuary in her big backyard.  She does her best to rescue abused and neglected animals of all sorts and give all a chance to live their lives in a safe and nurturing environment.  She crafts and has an Etsy store to help raise funds for these creatures she feels priviledged to care for and she blogs, to help spread the word about proper and fair treatment for our animal kin ....and the antics of the furry friends who call her ranch home.
She is hosting a wonderful opportunity to make art for a good cause.
 

I urge you to take a look and see if it is something that calls to you.  I'm signing up.....hope a few of you will join me :)

Well, that's it for now....back to stocking the store I go....such a busy shopping week it'll be!!
Biggest hugs to you all!

Cameron
