A question I ask continually as I work on the final stages of sculpting my paper mache figures. I still don’t know who she is. I just know she has a lovely soul.

… is so much fun. i pulled a bunch of stuff out of the recycling bin, and picked some things from my yard- blossoms and leaves, and made a batch of handmade paper this weekend.
here it is drying on my studio door! varying degrees of success and thickness, but this is so fun.

I’ve started making big and little friends to share my studio space with me. I absolutely love bending wire and adding layers on and on. My first pieces were big… bigger is definitely easier, and a good way to get the feel for it.

I also love adding fabric, and letting the newsprint show through. Luckily, I have a stash of vintage fabrics, buttons, magazines and papers to use. Here’s Girl Bear.

I am so incredibly flattered. Artist Idaika Iglesias has created some sweet, sweet sculptures based on my work. She’s been able to completely capture 3 dimensionally, what I try and get across in 2. I just love these- it’s so fun to see my skinny legged girls standing up and not toppling over! Here’s one- click over to her blog to check out the rest!

Seriously. Seriously. I so wish i could have one of these adorable girls in my flock. I would get nothing done. I would just watch it walking around, bumping into things, being adorable…. I would live a blissful, stress-free life….ahhhh. However. I have some serious meanies in my flock, who would take great joy in plucking her bald. So, she’s not for me, but…. i can dream.

I currently have a Buff in my teeny flock, and i would definitely consider getting another one. She’s a great layer, will patiently sit on my lap and let me hug her, and fat and pretty. The only thing I don’t like about Buffy, is that she’s wormed her way to the top of the pecking order and can be a bit of a bully to my favorite, Polly.
