Make a White Rabbit of course! I guess you could say he has an inner light ready to come forth, or not...:-) Some day I may stop playing with light bulbs, but probably not until they have been banished into obscurity. Until then, the skies the limit and each light bulb has his own character waiting to shine through. This winsome fellow can be found on EBAY

The weather forecast says it's sunny outside, but it actually looks rather frightful! Snow covered peaks are wreathed in light snow showers and it's drizzling here in the valley. I hope it doesn't cool off as that would make travel home a bit dicey. Perhaps I should bring Lamplight Santa with me to light the way, just in case. One thing I know for sure, I hope to leave early, as it's hard to see black cows out on the freeway at night. Or I could just follow a semi truck home and let him be my cattle guard....lol.
So what all that has to do with the Santa above is just in the phrase, "the weather outside is frightful", echoes of Christmas still playing in my mind. :-) Time to finish packing and then see where my Hive updates are going to as they haven't been hitting my inbox. Here's where you can find Lamplighter Santa.... ETSY

I Santa with a round belly is classic right? Well this Santa has a round belly and more! I've hand painted mistletoe branches to dress him up a bit. He's a jolly old elf, and can be found at my ETSY shop

I holding my breath as I finish up the listing for my mixed media abstract entitled Truly Lace. I have so much fun creating these, that I am hoping others will enjoy them as much I do. So I took the plunge and listed my first one on ebay. I hope you will take a moment and check out the listing and let me know what you think! Thanks to all the Hive community for your continued support and kind words of encouragement. Have a happy Monday!
Since I can't get a real job right now due to caring for my elderly in-laws, I might as well play when I can right? So I'm looking for new homes for some of my Santas that didn't get listed online during the holidays. This Santa is a re-purposed light bulb, hand sculpted with Creative paper clay and hand painted with layers of paints to add depth and shape to his features. He's a one of a kind, listed at MothersDreamRtworks ETSY

Into a new world of magical talent I roam, to rub shoulders with some of the best in the folk art business. I'm honored to be a part this group of talented folk, so I'm inviting you to go take a look at what they have to offer. PFATT BLOG I will be back after the power comes back on, but for now, I need to tend to the folks and make sure they are warm.

Sweet comic valentine
You make me smile with my heart.
Your looks are laughable
But you're my favorite work of art!
Is your mouth a little weak
When you open it to speak
Are you smart?
Not if you care for me
Stay little valentines stay
Each day is valentines day

Sometimes I jump the gun on creativity and don't plan things out, just dive in and start mushing and mashing clay here and there to get a feel for where I want to go with a piece. The two forms to the right are those sort of soon to be creations. I have an idea, but I will let them play out as I add a bit of clay here and there to bring out their personality.
The bunny to the left was rough sketched to give me some direction, and he's coming along pretty well. Can you see the little vest taking shape? He will have legs and feet, but I'm still trying to decide their shape. I'm thinking I will go a bit pudgy, we shall see. I will be heading back home tonight for a couple of days of respite and to get rejuvenated for the return to the folks home. These are all going with me and I hope to have them ready to paint by Saturday. Wish me luck, I may need it! The biggest challenge will be going home and not looking at the chores that may need to be done. Tomorrow will be an all creative day, Saturday we can clean and get ready to come back. There's probably not much to do anyway but I tend to obsess about those sorts of things. Can you ignore the dust bunnies and still be fully creative? If so, how do you do it????
