Hello everyone! I haven't written a blog entry in quite a while, I don't have internet service at my house anymore unfortunately and I can't post blog entries from my phone. Yes, I am on the brink of insanity.
I hope everyone had a good holiday, and I hope the winter is treating you good thus far. New Year's eve is tomorrow and I hope that goes well for you also. 2012 was a strange year for me... I'm pretty happy for it to be over. I'm hoping 2013 will bring me a bit more luck, and I hope it brings you luck as well.
As for art updates. Wow. I've been all over place the past 5 or so months. I feel like my head's been in a cloud so it's been difficult for me to actually put actions to my thoughts, but I'm getting there. I have so many ideas written down but I only started a small amount. I'm looking into doll making and I acquired quite a few more shadow boxes as well as some antique cloches (!!). Little background on the cloches, god these are GORGEOUS. I bought them at an antique fair at Batsto this past October. They were CHEAP, 3 dollars a piece I think, I purchased three. I wish I had brought more money with me because I would have taken all of them. The man was selling them all for 30 dollars, and there was about 20 of them. A steal. At least I got three though, I am happy with them. I'm anxious to work with them, but at the moment they are set up in my room harboring small animal skulls and dried flora.
I got more resin last night, and I got some really creepy, cool, silicone molds to use with them. After I post this up I believe I'll work on some of them tonight!
Oh, I also realized I never took photos of these really cool shadow boxes I made back in September. For some reason it keeps slipping my mind, which is odd because they're some of the coolest things I've ever put together and I'm extremely proud of them. I'll have to do that sometime this week because I would love for you all to check them out!
For the locals who read this and aren't already aware, the Smithville Artwalk is on April 20th this year. Registration starts in January, so if you haven't checked it out yet or registered, please do so!

I think this just about sums up this post. I'm a bit drunk off a of that Jersey Devil wine I posted up there and I'm hoping this post made sense, or was at least entertaining or informative in some way or another. I wish you all a blessed new year and look forward to hearing from you soon!
