Sgraffito!....God Bless You!......

I have stayed super busy this past week.  In less than two weeks I have to ship everything out to Washington.  I will be glad when it ships because at that time, I can STOP!!!  LOL (Except I never do!  I will just switch over to things that I can carry with me!)

This week I worked on a few pendants using a sgraffito technique.  I really like the way they turned out.  They have a deep glaze over the front surface and my typical glaze over glaze look on back.  They measure about 2 inches across.


I also finished the chains on all the pendants from previous posts.  It was a huge chaos while I worked on them.  It actually took me 3 DAYS to finish them all!
Next up....I finished 20 new bags! 


Finally, I made a pair of boot cuffs to match a favorite sweater to wear at Artfest!  They have lovely purple beads all the way around.  I like them a lot and me being me...I wore them to church last Sunday!


The final thing in this post was a surprise.  A good friend from SuziBlu's site allerted me to the fact that my art is in Jenny Doh's new book Creative Pilgrimage.  It's a half page photo showing my table at Artfest a few years ago.  I was thrilled to have been included but disappointed to have not be credited.

Well,that's the pits. Seems like she could have found out who you were and given credit.
Girl, you have been a busy bee. I wish I had your youth. I didn't know you were making those cute little bags. I love all of it. You look very well prepared for Artfest but I know exactly what you mean about not stopping.

Wow!! Hey lovely Sunshine. You sure have been busy. Those bags are adorable. Do you sell any of these bags in your etsy store??? I am in love with the little rat bag.. Good luck at Artfest.
Sorry to hear that you were not credited. That's pretty slack, huh?
Hope you are well.

Oh I can't wait to see all your new stuff! Hmmm, maybe a new little purse is in order. I get so many comments on the one I have. Love all the new stuff that you are working on. Only a few more weeks till Artfest and I am looking forward to seeing everyone there.

Hey that is not cool that you weren't credited for the photo of your stuff. I guess sometimes it might get lost in the shuffle but not a nice thing to have happen to you. Sorry that it did.

So do you have more than one little rat baby girl bag?? There may be some competition for that one. lol Can't wait to see them all, I think I need one with the longer shoulder strap this time around.
