Oh what a jolly mix of toys and Santa Clauses I've concocted this year! Listening to Christmas tunes in October does the trick ;) I will be stocking the shop with these holiday art blocks (and a few others!) throughout the day.
There has been a distinct rustling of jingle bells here at Sushipot as I work on all sorts of holiday goodies for the shop.
Lotsa vintage ornaments hanging around the studio these days including some kitschy, hand-painted wooden ones from the decade I was born.
Yes, the holiday blocks are coming along nicely and will be ready to go in the shop early next week. No....I didn't snip these snippets with giant shears....they are just a prop and the largest pair of scissors I own ;)
In other news we found a pair of acorn twinsies on a recent Autumn walk. There are always treasures to be found....you just gotta look.
This old jar opener has been hanging around my studio for years. I think I bought it back in Mobile, Alabama 'cuz I loved its chippy green handle and rusty toothiness. Still love 'em but she's more than ready to weave her web in the great wide world....shouldn't be too hard for a gal named Sesame.
Seems like every time October rolls around I have an 'oh s**t' moment over my things-to-do-before-the-holiday-season-begins list (as an Etsy seller that is). All summer long I have the best of intentions to be prepared but when you run a one woman show it's much easier said than done. Anyhow, it's no different this year and today is that day. haha! So I'm telling myself to kick it into high gear and tackle that list (we'll see how it goes!). First up is to finish this bevy of wall dolls who have been patiently waiting for additional limbs. They gotta have something to kick around with you know ;) Oh....and before I forget....a happy October to you!
Lizzie and I gathered these first signs of Fall about our neighborhood this week. We've been enjoying crisper evenings and are busy planning all the soups 'n stews we will concoct this season. Happy first weekend of Autumn!
Possibly my favorite clown ever? Alas, I cannot keep him...he's headed to live in Brooklyn, NY. Have you seen these stamps yet? I bought two sheets....one to save and one to use. Gotta send some snail mail now! And....check out these old-school clowns.
I'm a thirty-something artist living and working from my home studio in Springfield, Missouri. This blog is my virtual corner to share about the art objects I create and collect, and other snippets of my life as an artist, homeschooling mom and wife to an economics professor. Oh yes, one more thing, I drink a lot of coffee. Thank you for stopping by!
