Full of Complex Carbohydrates and MicroNutrients

I am a novelty to many (and I'm fine with that).
I have a very silly sense of humor usually riddled with malapropisms (and I'm fine with that, too).
I ask too many questions of Life and I expect all the answers.
I trust people too easily when I shouldn't; however, I respect everyone regardless…unless they do something to make me think twice.
I don't cheat. I am tactful yet will give the truth up front (and never mean to hurt anyone's feelings with it).
I like to help the people who have helped me, and even those who have not.
I never forget... but sometimes I misplace things.
I never lose hope.
I am awesomely blessed for the people who have come into my life, and I am blessed for the people who have left because I realize I didn't need them anyway.
I honestly feel that laughter is the best medicine you can have.
I believe in being strong when everything else seems to be going wrong.
I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles. In other words, I'm human, and definitely not perfect.
But tomorrow is another day, and there's so much cheese to be had...

Sculpting Skulls!

A sculpting I will go, a sculpting I will go....

Just a small selection of the many skulls that will be used this Halloween. The large one in the lower center will likely end up as a Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) skull, as it's got a certain innate character of such to it. 

The three on top were made from a fab glow in the dark polymer clay that I was not so sure of in the beginning because it was very soft, like trying to sculpt a marshmallow! Once I mastered it, however, and baked 'em in the oven, I was pleased with the results. Plus they glow a really cool greenish hue! Mark created the one in the upper center, BTW. I tore off a small chunk of the stuff, handed it over to him, and commanded him to sculpt a skull. I like his, it's got a definite unique charm! Not bad for a first timer, eh?

Ok. Back to the studio I go!

Back again... have painted a couple of these today. Boy, it was fun sitting home alone in my studio on this chilly, blustery day, listening to Halloween music and creating cool seasonal art. I could get used to this, I tell you!

I think they are all quite charming.

Thank you so much, Vivienne!

I had a really good time creating them. Kind of sent me into a relaxed zone.... OHMMMM!
