Now that October is here, we’re feeling the heat – literally. It’s 80 degrees for some of us, but with various deadlines looming, it feels like 800 degrees for others!
Ann finished up last week’s custom Fizzgig purse without a second to spare. She snapped this shot shortly before she packed up the purse and sent it south to the birthday girl.
This week, Ann is getting ready to alter some cute little houses she found at Goodwill to make them scary, spooky, amazing Halloween houses. Here’s the before shot of the houses with their lids taped on:
Once the lids came off, the houses proved to be, um, a little dirty. Okay, a lot dirty. After trying to clean them in the kitchen, Ann got disgusted and relocated to the garage, where she spent about 45 minutes spraying, scrubbing, soaking, re-spraying, and re-scrubbing. Delightful.
Last week, as you may recall, Cindy previewed some fantastic Halloween greeting cards, which are now available in her shop. With those finished, she has moved on to this 12 x 12 house painting, which she claims puts the “P” in progress. The rest of us think it puts the “P” in pretty damn awesome:
Nanner has been dreaming and scheming in preparation for introducing a new product line to her shop that combines her mixed media brilliance and her wonderful wit. Here’s a delicious sample of things to come!
Sarah is still hard at work designing, writing, and videotaping her upcoming Day of the Dead (DOTD) class, available through Art Trader magazine beginning October 24. This week, however, we’re giving you a tantalizing look at the DOTD garland from that class that we are all dying to make now.
Check back next Wednesday and every Wednesday for more sneak peeks and product previews!
