I've been swamped with commission work this month and hence my blogging has suffered greatly. So I thought I'd at least give you a quick post and show off the completed cutting table my very wonderful husband made me. It is perfect for cutting, ironing, and (hopefully one day when I learn more about lighting) taking photos. I love it! The cool marbled paper propped on top was made by a dear friend of mine when I was at her house recently. It was a fantastic accident that occurred because the liquid was too cold...I love how it looks like sliced agates. We're planning on a fabric marbling session when school gets out, I can hardly wait! Oh and the drawing over the table was done by my sister and is one of my all time favorites. (It was supposed to be a loan but she'll probably have to pry it from my grasp...so shhhh.)
Speaking of commission work, I've decided to make some changes there. From now on I will only accept 3 commissions a month so that I actually have some time to design new dolls ( and play with other arty stuff!). I'm already full for June and July and have 2 for August, so if there is a doll you'd like me to make please plan to let me know a good bit in advance.
Wow you are way too organized! I am feeling very slobbish right now :)ReplyDelete
The paper is spectacular!
The paper is gorgeous! Don't you love 'accidents?' . . . The table looks great - & the idea of only taking 3 commissions a month so you can work on your own ideas is great - sounds like a nice balance :) Love the Autumn harpist - I'm a harperReplyDelete
What a very well organized work space, cheers MarieReplyDelete
Your post makes me want to clean my studio...Your new desk is perfect as well as the fabulous paper.ReplyDelete
Wow, what a nice hubby you have! Your sister's art is beautiful, I can see why you want to keep it. I just saw your Alice doll the other day when I checked your blog...she is perfect, I love every detail! Cyn, I am so thankful that you have a blog and a shop. Thank you for sharing all your how-tos so generously.ReplyDelete
