My Whimsie Wanderings

HI everybody!!! Sorry to have been away so long. Christmas was great. My oldest son, Allan was home from Grad School (UC at Boulder, CO!) My two boys are so close, they are best friends and Matthew (a senior at USF) was delighted to be with his brother again! Together, they are quite the clowns!

While I've been out, I have been a bit ill,but with the internet I used sick time very well! I have taken an online course in sculpting by Christy Meyers of CC's Whimsies, and before that a short tutorial by Brenda Sanker of the Vintage Polka Dot on old world Santa's. Here are some works in progress:

The Santa on the right is the one we made in class, the one on your left is one I experimented on my own. As you can see, there is work left to do and LOADS of practicing!!! In class we just were making ornaments, but I want to turn them into dolls! Surprize, Suprize!

Below are a couple of Characters out of my own head...Mortemor the Mortician and Harley the pumpkin man. I think you all know how much aI love Halloween!

Please stay tuned for more of my wanderings, but not to worry, I haven't desrted my soft dolls or teddys permently.

Love to all...
