sTEAMpUnk dREsS fOrM-Somerset Studio May/June

I am so honored and excited to have been selected to be published in the May/June
 Somerset Studio Magazine!
Page 44
Yes I am!
Often wonder where the artist gets inspiration from?
I do!
This is where I got mine!
Yep, this rusty piece of junk!
I thought, I died and went to heaven! Really, I did!
the story is told in the article and I don't want to
give it away, so I will leave it to your imagination.
In the meantime, I will take you through my mind process.

See big rusty thing........think need knobs!
Wish I could get this kind of makeover!
From that  to this!
I wish!
Somerset Studio took this beautiful photo!
Shows the dress form in it's true glory.
Yes, this is how my mind works.
Take a box, junk, drills, adhesives and plenty of idea-ology and Ranger products and toss it around on my table until it no longer looks tossed in my head.
A beautiful mess!
           I told you a mess, this is how I design.
Drives my husband NUTS!
As I go along, I might see something and think it may be cool, then try it.
Sometimes things just don't work out.
Times when they just do!
                       Check out those picture corners!
I loved them the minute they went on!
I had no idea at the time, but I tried them on and it just (they) fit!
No measuring!
This picture shows the process up till the box.
Did you see her shoulder? It is a idea-ology foundation.
Suppose to be on the bottom of a box or something like that?
NaH!  Great shoulder!
Close up
Theses are the pictures that I took.
By the way, this is a night light!
I added a light kit to the back so that it would light up.
You can see it in the photo that Somerset Studio took.
I hope you enjoyed my journey through my mind and thought process.

Thank you to Somerset Studio for letting me share with the world!

I used tim holtz's idea-ology line, pieces off of the time machine, found box and metals, pipes from my dad's stuff. Distress inks.

Have a great week!

It's been A while

So many things have been going on.

Busy, Busy, Busy!

Some bad!

Some Good!

Some really GOOD!

Husband has done his raditation and has been scanned. However we are still waiting for results, cancer gone or? (Bad)

I must be holding in more stress then I thought, I had a recent trip to the hospital and need to really watch my stress levels. Seems to be attacking my body in diverse ways. My Fibromyalgia has been trying to tell me. But we never listen to our bodies. New meds are starting to work and I am feeling better! (good)

We are pretty selltled in to our new home! (good)
This has been quite a job! (Yuck)

I think the only room not really done and probly will never be studio! (oh well)

It will forever always be a mess.....any good orginizers out there?

Some good news is I have been published in Haute Handbags!
Fun and different!

I am also published in the new Somerset Studio May/June. I have yet to see this one yet. I can not wait. It is one of my famous Dress Forms. (Really Good)

Some of my dress forms. Not the one published, I will save that one until I see it.


More on that as soon as I get a copy!

Do you have a Hobby Lobby in your town? Do you ever pick up the Stamping*Stationary and Scrapbooking magazine they put out? Well I was included in the Glue Dots ad. I have two projects with instructions in the magizine. (Really Good)

So I have been busy and hoping to get blogging much more!

I have some deadlines for projects due on the 1st and some things I am working on for magazines. The bad part about those is you can not share until they have been published.

I will be included in a blog hop shortley so stay tuned for that.

Until next time...........

Enjoy every day!
