To much (insert appropriate curse here)

My days have blown by far too quickly in the past 2 weeks.

Money, as with most people, artistic or otherwise, is controlling more of my free time than I would like.

eBay and craigslist have taken away most of my blogging time on this accursed phone, as I had no clue how time consuming both could be.  But Christmas is coming, and the promise I make to myself every January to save X amount of dollars a month so I have enough cash to enjoy the holiday was broken as always by responsibly to pay bills and eat.  Blerg.

I am wanting to start an etsy store, but not via phone.  I need an actual computer and who knows when i’ll get one of those.

Anyway,  enough bitching, on to art!!


Got some mannequin heads for super cheap, and I’m planning a marketing campaign of sorts.


I’m turning them into Day of the Dead mannequin heads, and will be distributing a few to a chosen salon and jewelry maker in the hopes that the display will be advertising.  A dumb idea I’ve been told, but I won’t know unless I try.  By the way, the one shown isn’t completed.

I’m not using any type of stencil, so they are time consuming.


I’m also using one temporarily to male Scarletts hat for my Halloween costume.  The hat is almost finished, but I still need a dead black feathered bird.


It’s either a crow or a chicken, I don’t know.  I need to further research it.  All I know is it’s the entire bird curled up, so that’s going to be a challenge.


Halloween activities…the trite barfing pumpkin, while done to death, I had to try.  I very much like it.


Hahaha! I do like this picture.  I call it,
I see what you did there.
