Happy New Year!

Hope you are all blessed with a prosperous & healthy New Year. Of course, my New Years resolution is to post more often to my blog. We'll see how that goes ; )

Well now that all the fuss is dying down it's time to get back to the business of creating. I've got a few things in the works. Phil sold and when I removed his hat for shipping and tried on the tophat of the Ebeneezer Scrooge I currently have up on ebay, it suited him so well I'd wished I'd have done him as the Mad Hatter. Ah well, I believe I may just have to make another similar. The Mad Hatter is one of my all time favorite characters. Anyway, here's a peek at Ebeneezer.

My new ebay artists group BWBA (Because We Believe-Art) is off to a good start but creating it got me booted from the ornament group I was in. I thought it might but it had already been all planned out before that group restructured into an all-holiday group so at that point it was not a 'competing' group. Kinda' made me feel like I was being kicked out of church for not being 'faithful' enough. Oh well, I guess politics are everywhere & in everything we do. I personally think cross-promotion between groups benefits everyone. All the same I wish them well and have no hard feelings but I will miss the friends I made there.


I'm in the midst of my doll groups end-of-the-year (yes, I'm late she says sheepishly) challenge of Nursry Rhyme/Fairy Tale Victims. I have chosen "Humpty-After the Fall". It involves a real goose egg in pieces at the base of a wall. It was a real challenge sculpting parts of his face on three different pieces but I'm really pleased with the effect. Hope to post it this weekend.

Happy New Year Josie. Im sorry you got kicked out, rather sad that they would do that.

Good luck with your new group :)

I tried so hard to win Ebeneezar and am still heartbroken - beyond consoling. His scowl and your finishing touches are perfection. Great sculpt!
