today i went to michaels in search of some casting resin, which i found amongst other things..that place is like target, you go in for one thing and the next thing you know its $50bucks later...anyway, michaels must had just set up for all their halloween stuff, because they were full to the brim with all kinds of cool stuff...now anyone that knows me knows that halloween is my favorite holiday and i love to dress up and i love all those haunted houses that you set up and coffins with hands coming out of them and the fake hand that crawls across the room but i saw something tonight that i had never ever seen before...A SPIRIT BALL.....well i call her madame gigi..remember tom hanks in BIG and he does that fortune teller thing for a quarter, well this is my rendition of tom hanks fortune teller.....she is so cool, i had to buy her and she talks and gives out some fortune advice and her eyes glow yellow and her head floats or gives the illusion she is floating...my plan is to take her to work the entire month of october..she is so cool and the best part is i got to use my 40% off coupon from joanns at michaels..how great was that, i guess you can do that! who knew>>>>!

the first picture is an atc that i bought off of ebay because it so reminded me of my art dog-chance marie... our chubby girl or as we fondly call her-Petite Chorizo..there is nothing petite about her..she is a chow-border collie mix that someone dumped in the yard behind us on a cold rainy valentine's day five years ago..she was a tiny wet little furball back then, now she is queen of our pack and i love her to death..she is always in my studio when i am creating...love her, that saucy girl.....xoxox
ps..if these 2pictures do not make you smile on a monday morning, well, i just know they will~*~

well, the girls are all packed up and ready for their trip to australia! this is my contribution to my first doll swap! and my first attempt at making any kind of dolls at all...if i say so myself, i did pretty good...did a little beading on half of them and added some with old jewelry i had made when i used to make it for resale. it was fun and i think i might keep up with making some of the dolls evry now and then.....i will post the 6dolls that i receive when they get here....they each have there own names which are: tola, ophelia, mersenne, lenore, noorene and rose...that was fun trying to name them and really it fits each one of them...okay, that is enough babble for now....over and out~*~*~*~*~

this is our patio well most of it and our fountain- where this week we have found that we have 3frogs living in it...2 small and one medium sized one..i think the biggest one is just a green frog and i got a glimpse of him yesterday and he was this marvelous color of bright green..the one picture is one of the small omes..i knew just like field of dreams-if you build it-they will come...all the surrounding houses have large ponds and you can hear the bull frogs nightly giving their wonderful concerts for free...we eventually we have the big pond but i much prefer our little pond and the wonderful noises it makes and i swore that i have been hearing our own frogs give their own concert series nightly....i was right, of course~*~*~*~*~*~*~

(http://whatsforlunchhoney.blogspot.com/2006/07/blogger-postcards-from-world-list.html) i decided to make the postcard just like a bigger version of an ATC...She is the faerie from my pink & orange swap, i made lots of extra copies so you might be seeing her around the block..anyway, my swap partner will be getting a handmade postcard which is nice...a postcard from the USpost office is 24cents but i had to add more a few more stamps which means my faerie had to get a passport and that is a whole other story for a whole other day.....so off in the mail she will go....
commence circling the maibox.....~*~*~*~
