I Finally Breached The Mess

I held my breath, cranked up my courage and opened the door to my little studio last night. April and May have been particularly busy with a lot of birthdays and anniversarys, and thus a lot of pieces being created as gifts. I have not posted pics as I know some of the recipients follow this blog (you know who you are *grin*).

Anyway, when I work, I must start with everything organized and then within 10 minutes, chaos has returned to my 8 x 10 room. I don't generally put things away as I work (bad habit). Did a fast tidy-up last night and started 3 Kindreds. At this point, I know I want to do a darker, gothy one.



I also started and almost finished the sculpting for my ADO Challenge piece. For the last challenge, I didn't get finished until the last day....I would really like to be earlier this time. The challenge is to do a piece (or 4) based on the elements, Earth, Wind, Water and Fire. I'm a Taurus, so of course, I am going to do Earth.






I had to use my old camera for these pics while my new one was charging - sorry for the graininess.


I'm hoping to go to an estate auction tomorrow, so probably won't get much done on any of these pieces, but will try to post pics
as I continue on them.

Hope everyone had a creative day!

I love your the start of your Taurus Element Doll...
I'm a Cancer... And I get tired of doing the water thing as I think I'm really an earth person... living in the dessert is where I'd be happiest. I alway s love your kindred spirits...

These are fantastic Sue. Wow the hands and the feet and then the cheekbones.

I am sorry to hear that your daughter has a chronic illness. It is very hard when our children don't feel well isn't it.

My oldest daughter has systemic lupus and when she was 22 she had to have 3 years of chemo for it.

I hate lupus.

Love Renee xoxoxo

So happy to see you back at it Sue! I can relate to the chaos when I'm working. I did a mass clean after I finished my last doll...
LOVING your new girl for the challenge! Her foot is so perfect and the hand looks wonderful as well as the head! I know she's going to be a beauty already!
Making me wait.... sigh~ ;-)

this looks great! the detail on the feet and hands are awesome! I am anxious to see how she comes along. I chose Fire and Water. I am a Pisces and love water. My Fire piece is done, I am going to start water next.
