Clean, Sort and move

We have been so busy this weekend I didn't create anything new. Yes I have been in the studio
but I was cleaning out my storage area for a yard sale we are having at my in-laws. Two years ago my Father-in-law had a major stroke. They lived 90 min away from us. He was in the hospital for some time. The decision was made for them to buy a house near us so that we could take care of dad. So we found them a house 6 blocks away from us. Now the fun part was moving them from a 2 story farmhouse with 3 bedrooms and a huge garage and two outbuildings to a small 2 bedroom cottage. I have never seen so much stuff. So after sorting through it and storing it we are just now starting to set up the yard sale. It will take us about a week. It is just me and my honey doing all this work and it catches up with you fast. I didn't think I had so much stuff to get rid of from my studio but I brought out about 5 boxes myself. I can't wait until this is all over and things quiet down and I can concentrate on my art.

I thought I would give everyone the heads as to why I am not posting more. I am still here.
Just very busy.

Let it sNoW....

let it sNoW....I know.. its to early to start thinking of Christmas with Halloween right around the
corner RiGhT!!!!! But I LOVE snowmen!! Here is a Wip pic of two that I made out of paperclay.

Here is a pic of the "almost" finished snowman. I painted him an antique white then I drybrushed a very light blue over the white. I covered him in a fine light blue glitter. Added his scarf from some scraps I have and made him some earmuffs, don't want his ears getting cold. The snowball in his left hand is covered with snow-texture paint. All I have to do is make him a sled to ride on and he will be done. As soon as I get the other snowman done I will post him. I hope everyone had a great weekend!! Now back to work!!

These past few months have been a struggle for me!!! With all the stuff going on around me it is difficult for me to be creative right now!!! I am slowly starting to get back into the studio and will post new work soon.
