I got up bright and early this morning so I could work on some gourds…I completed a butterfly and got fins on 7 fish…I wish I had the determination to work like this all the time…if I did I might have more money in my pocket. But I am driven by pressure..the pressure of a […]

And so it begins….I know I am asking for it… I originally posted about this idea back in September….Whirligigs and Baby Doll Heads….for those of you shocked that I am actually doing this should not be…you should know me better by now.

TaaaaDaaaaa the snake is completed! Well, he may end up with a tongue…the one one I had attached on Saturday didn’t stick… I did the top of the wall also….

Reality Check

This time of the month is probably not the best time to ponder life but unfortunately that’s where I am today.

I have to confess that the bottles are still not scrubbed free of mortar..I just didn’t have it in me this weekend….lighting the wall was more challenging than I expected.
