Grandbaby's Mamaw - Nikki
Grandbaby at Granddad's 50th birthday party.
Grandbaby and his girlfriend, Lisa. A great friend who (whom? - explain it to me please) I used to work with.
Killi monster getting her fuel.
Check 'em out! I found the nuns at Book People - it is a blank card ~ the other one is on a brochure for a play. Funny how these things catch my eye. Ok - not funny. Still think they are fun to keep around my office.
The brochure is for the Spoleto Festival in Charleston, SC. I especially love the nun card cuz I endured 8 years of Catholic school. Some of the nuns I met deserved to be tortured with needles. Ok, maybe it was me.
Going to the Armadillo Christmas Bazaar tonight - with Seester. I can't wait to go back and check out the goods + have a few drinkypoos. Yum. What fun - I highly recommend for the holiday season.
Until next time...
|Masquerade Life Casting||Bungled Jungle|
AND THE WINNERS ARE....
Masquerade Life Casting ---- Last year, I fell in love with this booth. Ann Lyneah Curtis makes life castings ----- with all sorts of spins on her work. The one that really intrigued me last year (did not have on display this year) was of a man's back, with his hands tied behind his back. Umm, yeah. Some sickness resides in me. A man's back has always been a great turn on to me. I guess because it displays such strength and is so different from a woman's. I also enjoy the one of a man's face - with his hand on his chin and a part of his moustache (I wax mine but this person obviously doesn't) over the top of his index finger. Exquisite work. I talked with her assistant (hubby? partner?) for a while and quizzed him about the claustrophobia issue. I have some claustrophobia issues but I really was asking this of him because my step-daughter tried to be a subject of a life casting when she was in high school. She couldn't hang. He told me that if you warn them ahead of time, they can keep an eye on you and ask you if you're ok and also tell you "it will only be another 3 minutes. You doing ok?" This really would help because if I know that the end is near....I can talk to myself and be ok through any issue I'm experiencing. I think I could do something like this because I've had to do the full mouth mold twice. Both times, I really had to keep telling myself I'd be ok. Not that I really want to have my face hanging around the house. I would like to get the mold of daughter/grandbaby's hands. I think that is a great thing to hang onto forever.
Bungled Jungle ---- Now these are great works of art! I fell in love with these last year, also. BUT ~ the pieces they added this year ~ girlfriend, can I borrow $800? They have these 8' animals with huge, bent beaks looking down at you....and the loan is for the lady bird. She has cat-eye glasses, stands about 4'6", holding a rolling pin and a book (bible?) Now, wouldn't that be the cutest thing to have at the front door? They are some extremely creative people - I think it is a team of hubby/wifey.
Until next time...
No one lights a lamp, then hides it in a drawer. It's put on a lamp stand so those entering the room have light to see where they're going. Your eye is a lamp, lighting up your whole body. If you live wide-eyed in wonder and belief, your body fills up with light.... Keep your eyes open, your lamp burning.

|Gypsy Wings Tapestry Bags|
Yesterday, gay Adam and I headed over to the Armadillo Christmas Bazaar so that he could get out of the office and have a few brewskies. Yes, I did partake and felt giddy. As you see from the links provided....I picked up cards of some of the fabulous things I got to take in via my eyeballs since the wallet seems a little light (or is it lite?)
I will have to add another entry to include two others ----they're #1 but only if I HAD to give out grades.
Let me explain the links above:
KAI Ranch ----I met Lisa Shell last year. She has gorgeous woven rugs and scarves (scraf or scraves? I hate idiots) draped all over her booth. She also has baskets of gorgeous yarn - can you say cream? This year she had a table holding an album of photos (may have had last year?) but next to it was a gorgeous set of brown mittens. Very lush, soft, hairy....cream x 2! Lisa was busy with customers so I will stop back by her booth when Seester and I go there.
Wayne Rossi, Metal Artisan ----Don't remember this one being there last year but then again, hubby didn't have a welder then either so it might not have stood out because of that. This booth had some cool metal work. The coolest to me were the dragonflies made out of butter knives (knvies?) for the wings. They use the knife part on some and the handle part on others. I liked them.
Robert Hurst ----I found some things for BabyMan at this booth. He has some prints of Michael Jordan and Walter Payton. Of course, the thing I'd really like to buy him is $600. Beautiful painting of all three Chicago greats - Jordan, Payton and Sosa.
Lightcrafters ----I like the metal lighting and I really like the reflections this guy's makes when the room is dim. Ideas if nothing else.
Gypsy Wings ----The product is great but the woman working the booth is even better. I think she is the owner/crafter. I asked her all sorts of questions and she had no problem answering. I guess she could tell that I was the type that would not only borrow the idea(s) for my own benefit but also a person who will buy from her if I do. Her products gave me some ideas for my cell phone carrier. Whether or not I really hit that fabric stash is another issue all in and of itself. She had some bags there that really made me drool. I guess all knitter's/crocheter's go through this issue over bags. I have way more than I need but always thinking "that would be great to carry projects." Please - SOMEONE - kill me.
Until the #1's are announced.....

You are mRNA. You're brilliant, full of important,
interesting information and you're a great
friend to the people you care about. You may
have sides to you that no one understands. But
while you understand more than most people,
you're only half-there most of the time.
Which Biological Molecule Are You?

Now - there is a lot of truth to this ~ like the part about not being understood. That'd kind of be like saying I'm human ---isn't everyone misunderstood? I did like the part about me being Myrna - closest I'll get I'm afraid, even without the "y."
Dragging ass today - no telling how many times I hit that snooze button but I didn't leave the house until 20 til 7 so I hit all the traffic. Yep, improved my cursing skills and arrived in a hell of a mood. Luckily no one was at the office yet - they didn't catch my great mood or realize I'd overslept.
Brag time ~ as much as my friends and family make fun of me....they truly want to be me. They can't hide it any longer cuz I know the truth. Deny all they want.....
I was home last night cleaning out the "file pile" when the phone rings and it is DD (dear daughter) and she proceeds to tell me that she went to Old Navy and found something for me. She was so proud ----- she found a long, black, velvet skirt (seester?) for $1.99. First off - she knows what a girly, girl I am + a major bargain hunter. Well - she gets to the house and I am in love with the skirt (woulda been anyway cuz of the price) ----she proudly tells DH about her bargain and she says "Well, I knew that even if it didn't fit Mom, she would make a blanket out of it or something." Proud sob, she knows exactly what her Mom was thinking when she was on the phone with her. Seriously - does she know me or what? That is exactly what I was thinking when she told me on the phone "I think it will fit you." We may end up with dumpster divers in our family tree after all! I'm so proud.
Until next time...

are those knitting needles or stick pins for my eyes?....stick a needle in my eye.
Santa Doorknob - With Eyes! 12/9/03|
Here he is ~ with eyes! Mary Kay loved him ;-)
Santa Doorknob Cover 12/8/03|
|Ok - there is a story behind this. Although Santa does not have any eyes, he hopes someone will give him some tomorrow. I only had 2 sequins - I guess he's glad he at least has a nose. Working in the department of Theatre and Dance should yield me two sequins from the costume shop.
The story behind this: Mary Kay Lutringer (co-worker) brought in the original which her dear Grandmother, Zatella Creigh (Cree) Field Mitchell made her years ago. Mary Kay wanted me to come up with the pattern. Truly an easy task. The only bitch of the project was the fringe for his beard. Didn't it turn out cute?
Until next time...
