Greetings from Florida!

Post  LMPartdolls on 3/7/2009, 22:30

Just poking my head in to say howdy! We may not get snow here in my neck of the woods, but the Christmas spirit still rings loud and clear. Excited

I've only been sculpting for just about a couple years now and have only had the opportunity to sculpt a couple Santas so far. My 2nd santa received an honorable mention award from Jack Johnsons 2008 Santa contest at www.artdolls.com. I'm very proud of that, especially since it was only my 2nd Santa. I am currently working on some ornament pieces and a Santa doll atm.

It was by luck I found your forums the other day after I registered at www.ooakguild.com and I am very glad that I did. Like most others here I'm sure, Santa is near and dear to my heart. Just want to say a big thank you for taking the time to create such a wonderful place for us santamakers. Clapping

You can see samples of my work at www.lmpartdolls.com . Hopefully, in the near future I'll be adding more Santas.

Hi Diane,

Thank you for the nice compliment on my work and too for visiting my site. Yes, I was shocked that my santa made it in the pick of the litter last year. rofl Especially since he was only my 2nd santa. I don't know yet if I'll attempt to enter again this year. I will have to see how things are going by that time. I already have 2 of the cd's on "how to make santa" from Jack...which I think I cleverly bestowed one on my mother last year. hehe

At any rate, thanks for the warm welcome. I'm sure I'll see you around on the board here.

Hugs,
Lori

I'm currently working on a little fairy at the moment. Hopefully, she'll be done in the next couple of days. I also have another fairy that I've started as well. If my plan goes accordingly, she is supposed to be trapped inside of a cage. And, along side of that, I have a Santa that I'm in the midst of as well. Going in circles Not to mention the countless santa ornaments in the works too. rofl Going in circles Nothing like burning he candle at both ends! No wonder I feel like this -----> tease <---- from time to time. lol

Hugs back at ya,
Lori

Lori....you make me rofl girl. I thought we were suppose to always feel like that...LOL!!! I'm so excited to see your faeries. I did a captured faery...she is in a gold cage...I only have her there because she broke her tiny wing in the garden. I wouldn't want anyone to think that I would ever harm a faery. Wink I don't usually work on more than one sculpt at a time...with my imagination I can just see me combining them all together.
What an OOAKS that would be.... teehee I just finished up one of my Old Folkes...the Bird Lady. Maybe soon I can post some photos in the gallery.

Hugs,
Regi

Welcome Lori! welcomebanner

Great work! I agree with Regi, what an honor to have Jack recognize your work! I'm looking forward to getting to know you! I'm just doing a forum drive by right now. It will still be a few weeks until I'm back here on a regular basis. I did manage to get you added as a guild member to the forum along with Regi. Sorry you had to wait until I returned! I'll try to keep an eye out so when you two register to the Gallery so I can make sure to give you permission to upload photos. You can also list items for sell in the Guild Shop section.

I'll be out of town after next Tuesday and won't be able to add anyone until I return in two weeks. But, if you sign up before I leave I'll make sure you are added as a Guild member in the Gallery before I leave!
