Sketches, Knitting, Art Dolls & WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE!

Greetings & Salutations! Back Home now and trying to get the house cleaned up, laundry, and a bit of Spring Cleaning. Looks like it's going to be a nice few days here on the East Coast, so better take advantage of it before the "BIG STORM" hits us again! LOL
Here are some new sketches that I have been working on. As most of you know, I've been taking some Portrait Workshops with Misty Mawn and Suzi Blu. Still trying to get that Bloody profile to work for me...still needs a lot of work. However, I am enjoying the process of learning to draw and trying for the life of me to get those SHADOWS down! LOL

Gotta LOVE the MOLESKINE!

Working with Watercolor Paper...it isn't as easy as they tell you! LOL

Some New Art Dolls "Works In Progress." The poor things need a face and some clothes! I'm actually working on some Art Doll Challenges that we have going on over at "Art Dolls Only." Stay tuned for updates, as I move through the process.
Okay, let's just say that I've always wanted to learn how to Knit, but those damn knitting needles always got in the way, or should I say my clumsy fingers...Well, being away and having a need to keep my fingers busy, I thought I would give it another try. Can I say, "ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT." OMG...it's nothing like my Grandma was doing back in the day! LOL
Now I must find a Knitting Club to join...This is a very addicting craft!
Give it try...believe me, if I can do this, anyone can do this. I'm extremely clumsy with my fingers! LOL

Here are some GREAT Books to get you started. I ordered these off of AMAZON! The instructions are really basic and they actually go into types of yarn, weights and all of the different types of knitting needles...WHO KNEW!

Another score on AMAZON... WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE! Now I'm aging myself, but this BOOK was my constant companion as a kid...Well, let's face it, it still is because I'm still just a BIG KID!
Great Movie...if you haven't seen it, get it, rent it and ENJOY IT!

Okay, off to SPRING CLEAN and catch up with everyone. The Studio is calling my name! May be I should just lock myself in there for the next week or so...What do you think?
Until Next Time...Play, Laugh, Create and always remember to GIGGLE...It does work!
CHEERS!
