Buzzing around my studio and supply closets like a bumblebee. I am giddy when an idea pops into my head. "Come on right side brain! Time to go to work!" (whistling seven dwarfs tune) ...jotting down the jist of it...the tools and ingredients that will be needed...clearing a space on my work table...and losing track of time. The freedom of letting your imagination run wild. It's just the best.
Here are a couple of the projects that I have lined up at the moment:
*Retro Vintage T-shirts - all cut and waiting to have a love affair with the stuffing fluff and sewing machine.
*Brightly Colored packs of Femo Clay - finished conditioning and being turned into kitschy jewelry.
*My new Springtime Skinny Scarves - on the knitting needles in shades of pastels.
*Paper Mache Animals - a giraffe, bird, werewolf, bee and monkey at the moment. My first in the series was Mr. Shivers the Penguin. I absolutely love turning poor sad discarded dolls into quirky little animals with personalities.
*Beginning stages of my first Zine (pronounced 'zeen') - 21st Century Common Sense Survival: A Humorous Guide. I'm really excited about this one! My artistic side has never ever EVER delved into the world of mass production. I have journals galore, but never seen by the general public. There's a learning curve and it's a lot of fun writing in such a non formal way with your own handwriting and pictures / doodles. Muy Liberating!
Below is a pretty well known Zine author who is quite the cartoonist of comics and definately gets her message across. She's great.
The Single Girls
The scarves, jewelry and anim-dolls will soon be posted on my Etsy site Bright Earth Studio, but in the meantime I'm having a wonderful time dreaming up more and more and more....sigh....so gratifying.
