I would like to thank everyone for their visits to my blog, and all the wonderful compliments you have left. You always make my day :)
I thought I would share with you a little of what goes on in the mind of Dianie Mac and why I have recently neglected my blog.
I tend to DWELL on and OVER THINK certain issues and circumstances until, I throw myself into a gloomy state of mind. When this dreaded dark cloud hangs over my head, I certainly don't want to write in my blog because the content that might be translated from my mind to the keyboard would be for mature audiences only and I'd like to keep this blog G rated just in case young ones happen across it.
Anyways, I am happy to tell you that I have realized that life is far to short to sit in a corner and dwell. Life is a gift.. with many,many blessings. I have decided to quit thinking about yesterday, worrying about tomorrow and to stop piddling all over today.
Sheesh, i'm glad those gloomy days are behind me ;)
A week ago I became the proud owner of acrylic nails. In support of my daughter who is currently in Beauty school, I agreed to be her model for these lovelies. Boy did she have a chore ahead of her.. lol ! I am no girly, girl. My hands show it. They are always into clay, water, icing or dirt. However, miss Mandi did a nice job considering what she had to work with.
I found that it is a big challenge to sculpt with them on, so this evening Mandi will take them off. Thank heavens, I need to feel clay again :)
I definetly have been enjoying the Spring weather, how about you?
Aside from my art for the Boo and Marketplace, I have this old fella that I work on from time to time. The deadline for him is Oct. 1st that is when I will decorate for Halloween and he will be a new addition to my personal collection. A Santa Clause for Halloween?
Well, that is what he was before I offed his head and stripped him of his clothing and worldly possessions. I never noticed until I loaded this pic that I missed some of the white batting. Hmmmmm..
I am fascinated with animatronics. I love to read about how-to create animated characters. This little fella will be my first one. However, I am cheating and using an old animated Santa.
I will re-create this into an animated Halloween character. I will be taking pics along the way and will be sure to share. Keep in mind that the pics may come slowly as this is a spare time project.
To conclude this post, I will show you Edgarcasper in the complete form. You have seen him in his many stages of creation here and there over the past year. He is ready to go on sale tonight at the stroke of twelve exclusively for the Queen's Castle Bootique.
Have a look at the new exciting creations the Queens have to offer.
