Elephant painting on gourd

I looked at this gourd and said, "that looks like an elepant's head!" So I painted it that way. I've since done several more.  They are all a little different. These photos are all of the first one.

peacock bouquets, statement necklaces

I've been busy making some gorgeous bridal bouquets made out of peacock feathers. I've also been making more statement bib necklaces.

I've been finding some great vintage items too. I found a treasure trove of 35 vintage hats! Here's photos of just a few.

craft show and clown convention

I'm getting ready for a big craft show next week, then right after that I leave for a clown convention. Imagine 300 clowns in one hotel. we have classes, competitions, social events, jams and an awards banquet. It is so much fun! It's held in Laughlin, Nevada every year in November. I'm going to compete in skits, face painting and parade acts. They also have make-up and balloon competitions which I'm not doing this year. We have wonderful vendors that sell anything a clown could desire. My husband is a videographer (non-clown) and he tapes all the competitions and sells the DVDs. My mother-in-law and sister-in-law are also clowns and are coming. It's going to be a riot. Here I am as Zilly the Clown.
