New art dolls to see - these made with polymer clay heads. I loved them, hated to send them off for trade . . .

I obviously and publicly have few friends it seems. I was hoping more people would post, especially after the Bo Bice thing. But alas, I'm all alone in cyberspace.
In Music News - I found out that Marty Casey - from Rock Star INXS has released an album with the LoveHammers - his band. The single "Trees" is on it and I will be searching out the disk this weekend. In other music news, inspired by my love of Freebird (see below) I finally picked up a best of Lynard Skynard, and because it was cheap and I just love them - Licensed to Ill by the Beastie Boys!!! 7.50 at Walmart. (yes, the nasty walmart that thinks I just may be a drug lord.) Tomorrow if the rest of the DAy at the Shore swaps arrive, i can begin swapping out and having loads of fun packaging and such. If they don't, i just may start rummaging through the submissions anyway. No one showed for the ATC swap in Lancaster, I'm really trying to create a buzz here, but it's just a little hiss at this point. Hope more people get into this, I'd really like to do some face to face swapping.
Over, and out.
I'm sleepy.

Hey, i think i'm getting the hang of this thing. I'm actually posting on a regular basis. To all those who are signing on to see the cork doll, this means you will have to scroll further down the page, or read through all my ramblings. It's late, and I'm burning CD's that I have recently bought because I need more music in my car and for work. I prefer burning copies so I can keep those in the car and the originals in my house. I just burned a kick butt mix CD too, for driving. Including a couple of Beastie Boys tracks for energy in the afternoon. You just can't help but get energized by Fight for your Right. The CD winds up with , what else? FREE BIRD!! Okay, couldn't help it, Walmart had Beastie Boys and Lynard Skynard cheap today and I stopped on the way home from seeing my nieces dance in a competition. By the way, if you live in or near Bucks County - they go to a great dance school, Knecht. I'm not exactly sure how they do it, but the dancers that come out of that school ROCK big time. Women, send your kids there. I"m sure it costs a bunch, but it seems to be worth it. My daughter, has no interest in dancing or anything really girly, but is becoming a pretty righteous drummer. Can't wait to see if my friend scored some Tommy Lee sticks for her at the Motley Crue concert last night.
Well, tired now, must sleep, must work tomorrow.
Off to bed for now . . .

BO BICE I just saw Bo last night at the Chameleon in Lancaster, PA. Oh Wow! even cuter in person and what a performance!! Can I just be thrilled a little longer - oh man. and I was so close, like 5 feet away from him. I took my 12 year old daughter and had the time of my life. Yes, I am like almost 40 and I don't care. The thing is, this guy really knows music, the band was fantastic AND THEY FINISHED THE SET BY PLAYING FREE BIRD!!oH, WAS I in heaven!! FREE BIRD man! and it was soo cool. Best night by far in a long long time. I forgot how much I loved clubs, music and hot sexy men. In addition to Bo, might i add, his lead guitar is a friggin genius as is his drummer!! And his roadie, the one with the long hair who got a stick for my drummer daughter ROCKS!! He really made her night. She's a lot more laid back than me, but she's smilin' big today because of that. I have visitation rights on the stick, WEd and Fri nights, every other weekend and Halloween. She gets all the other holidays. That's okay, I still love her. Can't wait till it's her up there bangin on the drums. The drummer did this really cool solo with Bo holding the bongos - I think my daughter's gonna give it a try. Wish I still had my bongos. Bummer. -WEll, till i get around to this again! Over and OUt

New ATC's i made in the past couple of weeks. There are other day at the beach ones, each is different. The dance ones above are really cool - made with a kind of stained glass technique, capturing ink and glitter behind the image of the dancer. Enjoy, feel free to ask about technique and if you have any atc's you'd like to trade.

Honestly, i'd hoped i'd post more regularly, but alas, life gets in the way. What have I been up to? What haven't I? I have posted some more ATC's i have for trade and things I've altered. If you want to trade, and aren't a member of one of the many groups I'm a member of, e-mail me and we can work something out. I love the above card - "just keep swimming" reminiscent of finding Nemo - as if we can just keep going, everything will work out. Also she knows, i saw her and i just kept thinking she knows something in that picture (a found relative if you must know) i don't know what she knows but She does. The dolls are my first attempts at art dolls. The cork doll on the left was made for a specific person, because of her online personality and what I know of her, the ones on the right are for a Voodoo/healing swap. EAch doll has a sash printed with a virtue (love, creativity, and some other such things) and has a matching amulet with either a defininition or japanese kanji enclosed. They were fun and turned out quite lovely. Hope you all enjoy.
