pretty reds

I have been so busy lately I have not posted in a while, no time for sculpting either so I thought I would share more photos, it does not take as long to chase bugs around the yard as it does to sculpt babies. Stay tuned though I do have some ideas in mind to sculpt and will share them when I do.
Please stop by the touring babies blog to see my rat on there along with the other critters and babies that are being worked on at each stop.
I hope you enjoy my photos, I love to grab my camera and run around the flower beds searching for bugs or flowers that will hold still for me :)

another macro flower photo

I have been trying once again to use my new macro lens, we have some flowers bursting out with the beginning of spring. Since I do not have anything to show you of my sculptures at this time I thought I would share my other love with you , photography. I hope you enjoy the photos I am sharing with you, stay tuned for more photos of my sculpture real soon and in the mean time please stop by the traveling baby blog to see what is happening to my bjd rat and other babies that
are making the tour. Look in my favorite blogs for the link to the polymer baby voyage.

Spring is in the Air in Georgia

The weather here is just gorgeous, a good day to run around barefoot in the grass. I have been trying to use my new lens for macro photos but no bugs are around yet. I have found though that I can not hold it still without a tripod, I did manage to get a couple that were okay but most were not as crisp as I wanted them to be. Here is a photo that I did like though of my miniature peach tree bloom.

A rat or what

Now that the owoh is over and our prizes are on the way to their new homes, I wanted to share what I have been working on for another blog that I am a member of, this one is called Touring babies and we all make something and mail to to someone on the list and they do something to it and send to the next person, we all do this and we all work on each others sculpts, in the end they come back to us completely transformed with a little of each of us incorporated in. Last time I sent a baby , this time I wanted to do something different so am sending this critter, I think he is cute now even though he is rough around the joints LOLOL I plan to work on that some more, It will be really exciting seeing him or her transform as it travels along its journey across America.
check back for my next creations I am wetting my feet in sculpting other things, this time it is heads and torsos :( yikes I need lots of practice on both

Wee little Red Head

I wanted to share my latest little red head with you. This little girl is very sweet , I have not found a name for her, but have to soon cause she is going to Etsy. I have a hard time parting with them when I bond with them and something about the red heads just makes me want to put her in my curio with my other collectibles . I hope that she makes you smile.
Stay tuned for the OWOH coming up real soon, check out the logo in the sidebar for the details

Day 4 of white stuff

It is mostly ice covering snow down here in the southern United States of Georgia, I have been sitting inside watching motorists try and climb up the huge hill outside my house that is frozen solid. Some make it up either with 4 wheel drives or if they are brave enough to get a running start and go really fast slipping and sliding they might make it up. Most others are like me , just sitting at home, glad to be warm and safe inside. I did not get many photos cause it was sleeting when I tried and I was afraid I would ruin my camera, then later it got really slick, so again I could fall and hurt my camera or worse hurt me :)
Stay tuned for photos of my latest baby, she is made and waiting on clothes and photos. Maybe I can get that done today since I am stuck at home. And watch for the OWOH event coming soon, for details click on the link on an earlier post or the logo in the sidebar to find out more
