What's New? - Making Progress - And Just Being Silly!

Hi There!

Thought it would be a good idea to post in my blog and catch up where I left off?  Hope you all had a blessed Mother's Day!  My daughter was working, so she spoiled me on Saturday with flowers and my favorite perfume.  I cried over the card ... that girl know just the right thing to say to make me feel special.  I hope you were spoiled a little too!  I spent Sunday with my sweet Mom.  We had a BBQ over at her house and  she and I worked on ornaments for the Halloween and Vine show.  My finished cupcake ornies needed their hangers.

I wanted to catch up my blog on the latest happenings here in my studio!  Halloween and Vine (A fantastical Halloween Art Show) is approaching and I am so thrilled to be in the show once more selling my Charmed Confections.  You can go to www.halloweenandvine.com to check out the details.  They are celebrating their 20th Anniversary!  I am thrilled!  I remember when I was just standing in line to get in and now I am actually an artist in the show.  Crazy!


They also have a Facebook page.  Go to https://facebook.com/halloweenandvine ---- You can click the link, I've provided.  Check out all the artwork on the photos tab.


Here is an update on my bat!  He is my first one, so it is slow going until I work all the kinks out, but he is now primed and ready for paint!  I absolutely love how his wings turned out!  I studied so many anatomical bat photos that I think he is pretty accurate!  Even has a tail and all!  I will have to post a picture of his cute backside.  

Now that I have him figured out, I will make a few more for the show!


Here is a picture of my latest find!  A new desk for my studio!  I found it in a furniture consignment store.  Love it!!  The chair was mine, but I think it works.  So nice to be able to display some of my Halloween collection from my artist friends and get organized!  Loving those sweet cabinets!!


My sweet, Candy Boy, Jake, wanted to make an appearance on my blog too!  He is sending you a smile and hoping you have a terrific week.!  


Jake, looking for more tummy rubs!  I swear, my little man should not have any fur on his chest with all the rub downs he gets.  He should be bald!  This is the look I get when I stop petting him.  LOL!



Lastly, something silly I just needed to have.  Some super, cute skull rubber boots to go tromping in the yard with.  How these make me laugh and smile!  I need to make some of my skeletons with a flower headband!  My boots are inspiring!

Well, that is it for now.  I will post some more works in progress soon!  Lots of things cooking in the studio!

Have a wickedly, sweet day my friends!

Hi Angela! Thanks for stopping by and visiting. My bat is in the painting stage. Glad you like the armature for the wings. Took me some time to figure it out, but I am happy with the results. Stop by again and see me. Hugs, LeeAnn

Hi Lisa! Glad you like the bat ... it is a good sign that he is liked before the paint. Hopefully, I don't that part up now.

Loving my desk! It was a good find. Now, I have a place to put all those scraps of paper I put my ideas on. They are random little drawings and scribbled words on bits of paper and napkins. LOL! I have a TON!

Jakey sends his love! Thanks for stopping by. You're the best!
