After Glitterfest I was asked by  several people who couldn't make Glitterfest to make some of the things they saw on my FB page.  So I've been busy working on some and here is one that I sent off today for a person whos birthday falls on Halloween.

The tassel is fairly long, about 18 inches total and has a nice weight to it because of all the dangles  and charms.

 I have more to post.  Enjoy!

Glitterfest and Chorizo

So I woke up yesterday morning realizing I only had 8 days to finish all the projects I had started for Glitterfest and a huge lump of heart pounding adrenalin pumped me up and off I went, into the studio with a goal to at least finish most all them by this Friday or Saturday and maybe start some new ones to finish next week.  Here are some pictures of things I have finished.  I'm pretty excited because for this show I mostly concentrated on assemblages, altered art and art dolls and I'm really loving them. 

Do you love chorizo but don't eat it anymore because it's not good for you?  Well I have a yummy substitute!  Trader Joes has a soy chorizo and it tastes just like the real deal minus the "mystery" meat and grease, not to mention way fewer calories!  I was surprised at how delicious it was so if you live in So.Cal or the west coast check it out!
