Sometimes We Have Unexpected Guests.

Maggie and her BF and I spent a good part of the weekend in the basement being all creatively Halloweenie. I was in the studio and the kids were watching a movie in the big room while playing with clay. After a while I needed a break so I got up to go see what the kids were up to and I found this in Maggie's hands.

Maggs said she's not sure what it is or even if it's a boy or a girl.

The little creature has wing feathers suspiciously the same colour and texture as Maggie's flying monkey wings. Maybe they're related?

I think the tiny tot has Maggie's hair!!!

On closer inspection, it seems to have some red on it's teeth. I think we need to build it a cage? I'm a little worried, what if these things start popping up everywhere? What do they want? Who sent them? Maggs says she hasn't got a clue.

Not Dead!

So.... I'm not dead. It has been a while since I've posted but I have a pretty good reason. I've had that pesky gallbladder removed. All went very well and I can eat again. I had another surgery eleven days after the gall bladder thingie and it has kind of knocked me on my bum. I am feeling pretty good again, just a bit tired. I am ready to get back to work! I can't tell you how hard sitting around doing nothing has been.

Here are the first of many HALLOWEEN nail designs!

I used Martha Stewart sparkles in orange and yellow mixed, and a black mineral pigment with sparkles I ordered from Nail de Royale. (I Love them!!!)

I made a 3D spider pet on my left thumb nail. I think she's cute.

Maggs helped me take pics. She thought we needed some gummie worms to make it more Halloweenie.
Good to be back, I missed you guys!
