Hermies and Mermies....hehe

Happy first Friday of 2014!!'s the new year resolution lists going? I only had one thing on mine remember and......well.....I haven't been able to do it yet. BOOHOO!!! Now some will laugh at me for the reason I haven't been and the reason is because it's just too dang ccccold!!! Well, it is. I kid ya not. It's 11:42am and our temp is 35 (with the wind chill it's 27) I might have attempted it this morning after I dropped off the Chazman at school but with the wind....OMGOSH....Mother Nature would have chilled me to me bones. I have a few shells I can work with today. Whew!!!

I have two hermies (hermit crabs) in the oven baking along with two shells with mermies (mermaids) tails sticking out. HEHE

Once they have cured and cooled then I can detail them with my acrylic paints. I'm hoping to get some of the mason jars soon and get the hermie habitats done. I'm also hoping that the weather is going to be what they predict on Sunday.......sunny and 60+. I need some shells!!!!

I've been working on this lil (and I do mean LITTLE) mermie darlin all morning. I used one of my big doll sewing needles to sculpt her with. Once cured and cooled I will detail her with some of my MICA powders and acrylic paints. She is going to have some of the pretty wool hair too and perhaps a pearl headpiece. My muse is still whispering to me. ^_^

Thank you for dropping by and I hope to see you again SOON. I won't say what day it will be (so you have to come back..hehe) but in the next five days I'm going to be giving one of my shell jewelry pieces away. No catches, just that you have to come visit and leave me a comment. Easy peasy, ri iight??

Until next time..............Hugs,

  3. Hi Regina,
    Oh my goodness, I can't imagine the cold, cold weather you must be enduring. I'm from Texas so it's not really too much of an issue here. Hehe! Wishing you a wonderful year full of success!
