Shocked worthy I am not worthy, ahhhhhhh duh what can I say. The man in my life knows I'm better at fixing things than he is. He taught me mechanics, unfortunately he didn't keep up with what is new, so computers in cars drive him to drinking. I taught him how to sew, if that is what you call his feeble attempts.
I'm not putting him down, its just that men have a tendency to take advantage of the "weaker" sex when it comes to things that have always been mans jurisdiction, plus it bolsters the male id. If I let him know that he knows that I know how to push his buttons, I'd never hear the end of it. So I just keep agreeing with him when he says that 6 1/2 inches is bigger than 6 5/8ths. devil

Hi there, Hoopie,

I sure hope you share pics with us! I would love to see them. Where did you find the doll maker challenges at? I would love to try some of them. I have seen some listed in the doll magazine and have submitted some stuff to that (with no luck yet I might add). lol I think it would be fun. Perhaps we should have a doll challenge here. Something like Santa the day after christmas. Idea Nice to meet you too by the way!

Take care,
Lori

Man, I was going to add a comment yesterday, but I thought it best to lay low for a bit. But, I do appreciate the information, because now I am on to my wife's game. She has been acting as if she couldn't do any of the little maintence jobs around the house for a long time, when I knew she could all along.

Regi, is your stuff in Harrison Hardware now, if it is I will go by and take a look. I live in Huntsville and I love Harrison's Hardware it is such a cool place.

I am glad there is someone else in the area doing art dolls.

Ain't it the truth, seems the older they get, the less time you have. Yup been through Henderson many times, have family in Sparks and Reno. Those mountain roads freak me out. Used to Texas flat land.

Shame on you for spying! ninjahide rofl I'm sure your wife's comments to the accusation will look like this -----> shutup angel LOLOLOL followed by worthy What was that? You need a phillips head? What is that? *hands over a wrench* rofl

Now I wish I lived in Huntsville to check out this ever popular hardware store. I seem to be missing out on all the action in this sweltering heat here in Florida.

Hoopie and Paula, I don't have any grand kids yet, Blink atleast non that I know about anyway; with 2 grown up boys and one nearly there at 16 y/o, one never knows! But, I can tell you that I've been involved with the local little league here for years, since my youngest boy was 5, and when I see all those fine young boys and girls all grown up, driving their cars, some with families and babes now, I can feel every wrinkle on my body, see all the witch hazel hairs popping up, and feel all the saggy parts getting even more saggy. Crying Sometimes it makes me feel like poopoo , but then I remember, once my youngest gets out on his own I'm gonna happydance cause I'll FINALLY have some free time to myself! (atleast until the grandkids show up) hehe

Hoopie! Woot I have added you & Regi to the Gallery with full access. I think I've have everyone caught up now. Hopefully! I'm waiting to see LMPartdolls (Lori) signed up to the Gallery! I'm looking forward to seeing some photos!! Popcorn

I'll check in this weekend just in case anyone has any problems uploading to the Gallery. I don't go out of town until next Tuesday. There are other members here that have already uploaded to the Gallery that might be able to help too.

Dang, I wish I could figure out a easier gallery system for everyone to use. geek

Lori, I remember your santa in Jacks Johnstons compitition last year. You are very talented and you did a very nice santa.

But much to my dispare, (And one does not SPY on an open web site) my wife did not buy into any to the things you guys were talking about. She simply said that if I wanted her to fix the light switch; she wanted me to do the laundry. She always has that trump card, and dag-gum-it she always win's with it.

But I am glad that you and Regi have joined the group.

Take care

Rofl, Darel, Just some good ole pickin on the men folk. Very Happy Your wife is a very smart woman! Perhaps I should pull that trump card too. I think I still have a LOT to learn in this game...that or my deck of cards has been a little shallow of trumps. rofl I may have to go jokers wild!

And, too, thank you for your very nice comment on my santa. Very kind of you to give such a nice compliment. Blush And, too, I'm very glad to be here as well, a lot of nice folks here, and many, many talented ppl as well. It's humbling to be around so much talent at once.

Take care, Darel,

Sara, it's ok to lurk! At least you are keeping up with whats going on. It's been really slow in here for the past month, not too many posts happening. Me for one, haven't been posting too much cause I have been so busy getting my house fixed, dealing with relatives, blah blah blah, and managing time in my work room. So don't feel guilty, we all have things that take our time. Glad to see you here, even if it's every once and a while! Huggs Paula

Saddiejane,
I know how it feels when your computer goes out of whack like that! It is amazing how much a computer can make you feel so addicted to the internet when you don't have it to even lurk on. lol I know what having a slow computer is like....it feels like it takes FORRRREEEEVERRRR to get anything done. hehe

At any rate, it is nice to meet you, and I do hope you post again when you can find the time and your computer is being nice to you.

Hugs,
Lori

Hi Saddiejane.....I look forward to getting to know you....that is if ya come out of the corner every once in awhile....hehehehe!!!!! I understand about slowwwwwwww puters too but at least I have one....I would go into complete withdrawals without it and that believe me WOULD NOT be a pretty sight...LOL!!!!!!!!

I have been busy working in the studio on so many different things. Halloween characters, Santa characters, some of my weebies (small animal sculpts) and soooo happy that so far I haven't gotten any of them mixed up together. What a sight that would be!!!

I hope that everyone is doing good.....hopefully we will all find our way back in soon. I MISS everyone.

It's hard to write 10 postings ( to get in the gallery) when there are so few checking out this site. Anyway I thought I'd add a couple thoughts here., even though I maybe talking to myself.

Happy birthday to all the January members.

I also made a life size Santa.His body is made from PVC with moveable ( some what) copper joints. His head has a PVC pipe going up from the shoulders. The head itself was started on a huge, fired porcelain doll head. That eliminates several boxes of tinfoil.Hope that makes sense Kathy

When I visit my sculpting friends in Texas. I love to check out the largest flea market in the USA. It's called First Monday in Canton, Texas. I believe it over 125 acre's of STUFF. There is no way to see it all in one day. I have bought all kinds of treasures from there for my Santa's. Including my favorite dental tools for sculpting, a mink cape for $12. , and cashmere coats for a couple dollars each.

Morning Kathy....

I'm here...well kinda sorta!!! I would love to see that Santa. Sounds very interesting!!! I love Santa...I'm one of those artist that takes him out of just the Christmas setting and puts him in a daily setting. Since I am the goof of the group I have so much trouble posting photos to our gallery...so not the program but the operator...LOL!!! When you have some time go and check out my blog...please...and you will see some of my work. You will have to go back to older post because I like to babble every day on there.

Hugs,
Regi

OMGOSH...it's ashame that we don't live closer to one another. I LOVE Flea markets, estate sales and even yard sales. One man's junk truly is another man's treasure...LOL!! That's were I find most of my props for my ooaks. Hubby laughs at me because I will pick something up and say "Hey...this would be perfect for Santa''s desk or I see a faery sitting in this". I think he thinks I'm a bit touched....but aren't all of us artist!!!!

Post # 9 _ but then who's counting. I'll have to try and figure out how to post pictures in the gallery soon I wish someone lived close to me so we could sit around and sculpt together. I'm a very social creature!! I recently joined a doll club in Gilbert, AZ. 99% of the dolls so far are soft/fabric dolls but several want to learn to sculpt.Some sculpt shoes or other parts for their soft dolls. The group also hopes "other" sculptors will join. Yesteday we met at a little tea house for a meeting. There were around 15 members.Show and tell was just awesome. One beaded necklace won first place in a International contests ( her first time entry) and several other pieces have been in magazines. It was great to hear everyone sharing ideas.The reason I mention this is because next year the group is going to make a tree for the festival of trees in our area. I volunteered to make the Santa tree topper, if someone would make his clothes. Sewing is my least favorite thing to do. I find it very frustrating. My mother use to make all my Santa clothes but she past away and I miss her in so many ways.

I was running out of space but wanted to mention my latest project. It's a Jack in the Box Santa. Michael's sold "Christmas" ( and Halloween) Jack in the Boxes last year ( 2008). I tore out all the innards and put in a spring with sculpted arms and a Santa head attached. My original idea was to let it pop open but I didn't want my grandson's pushing the sculpted head over and over into the box. ( boy handled ) It's all finished just like several other projects, just waiting for me to "sew" a hat and top. I plan to make 2 witch's/hands ( maybe holding a broom) for the 2 Halloween Jack in the Boxes I have.
