Projects...Moving on

Oh, the time between projects is a funny time. Ideas for the next one are starting to gel. There is an antsy-ness to this period when in a creative high. With nothing in mid-creation I pick up and ponder armatures I've started but lost interest in to see if they are ready to be worked on yet. I know there are some that are hopeless but I am loathe to throw them away. Some of my most successful sculpts are those that I've started but didn't finish 'till months later or even mostly finished but have put aside then given a redo upon revisitation.

The ebay Halloween group HA31 is working on a spring time theme ideas so I've got some ideas percolating there. And for BWBA I do have an armature started for a large leaping bunny on a bedspring that I'm eggsited about ; ) and my skull swap for DAG needs finished. The due date is not yet upon us so being the procrastinator that I am I will wait until my brow breaks out in sweat at the closeness of it...LOL. I work better under pressure for some odd reason. Pics to follow as soon as some of these projects are worthy : )

It is sooooo good to know that there is someone out there like me!
I always grew up thinking something was wrong with me because my boneyard pile was much higher then my finished project pile. And I'm an under pressure gind of gal too.! Lol..
On a serious note, I have to tell you Josie, that your work always intrigues and amazes me! I am always so excited to see what your brilliant mind comes up with next.

Have a great weekend,
~Diane

Same here Diane and Josie....
I have so many "things" laying around...
"pick me pick me...."
I hate to say it but I sometimes just say "Sorry" and trash them..
I can't tell you how many dolls finished and unfinished are in boxes in my basement!

I always just love to see what you come up with!

Josie,
Thank you for stopping by so I could come find you!!! Love your work lady!

I also have to set things aside for awhile. "Peek-a-Boo" was the worst! I took about 4 months on that little creature but he turned out to be one of my top pieces to date. You just never know...like children they some just need more time to mature and some never do. HA!!
