the passing of a great artist…etc

While I have been online, I have not been responding to the posts on my groups as I usually do. But have been reading and today there was a post about the passing of a very great artist and friend of the PC world, that some of you probably know or have heard of, Alan Vernall. Alan belonged to at least one of the groups that I do and he was always there to help us out. He had a great since of humor. He will be sadly missed by everyone. My condolences go out to his beautiful wife Mary, family and friends.
I haven’t written in here in so long and now I have a lot to talk about. I have been busy doing research for my brother-in-law and that took a lot of my time. But it was well worth it as I think I found the items he needed to be able to go back to work. I love doing research but sometimes it gets frustrating when you can’t find what you are looking for. But it feels so good when you do run across the very thing you needed. Gives me a good feeling about myself. Especially when I am helping someone. 

I have also been busy doing Halloween items. We will be working theCounty Fair here in our town the week of Sept. 21st and I am planning on taking a few of my things to show. Hopefully I will sell a few. I have some in my Flickr album if you would like to check them out and make comments (nice ones please LOL) if you like.
I have also started adding vintage items to my Etsy shop.  I have found some really nice jewelry and clothes patterns.  That has been fun as I love the older things.  And of course like a good deal and then to pass it on to someone else.
Also I have made some texture stamps out of polymer clay, they are just little round disks and I got to wondering what I was going to put them on so I could use them easier. Well I got to thinking about the tops to pop/water bottles. I save these” just in case” so I had quite a few of them. I just glued the stamp on the cap. I haven’t used them yet so I don’t know how long the glue will hold or if it will ever be a problem. I have pix of those in the Flickr also. Let me know what you think.

And last be certainly not least to all of my Texas readers who are facing the Hurricane Ike, I am praying that you will make it thru this troubled time without any heartships. May God bless you all and your families and friends.

I hope everyone has had a good month since last I wrote and I will try to write more often.  I think of things I want to put in here but just never seem to have enough time in the day to do all that I want to do.





I changed my work room

Wow I have had a busy day.  First my husband and I went garage saleing.  That is something we really like to do and sometimes we find so really good bargains.  Today I did. I found the neatest kit for $1.00.  It is plastic and you put it together like a model car only these are reptiles, a large frog, turtle, snake etc. It has details on how to paint them.  The big frog even has his insides.  I guess it is like a science kit for kids. I have I pic of the box in my Flickr.  I thought I could use them for texture and also for a model for when I am sculpting. 

 I also got an unopened pkg. of T-shirt transfer papers for $5.00.  The regular price is still on it at $15.95.  I think I made some pretty good deals.

When I got home I decided since I wasn’t really working on anything at the time it would be a good time to change my work room around.  It took me all day but I really think I am going to like it.  I have pic of both before and after in my flickr also.

Oh and while I think of it I bought these two little knife like things that are old.  I am not sure what they are used for.  If anyone knows I sure would appreciate it if you would let me know.  They are also pictured in my Flickr. Which is probably going to show on this home page since they are the last pic I uploaded.

Well this old gal is really tired so am going to head for bed.  Talk to you again soon.  Thanks for reading and

Happy Clay-zie Day, CraftyLinda
