Ciel gallery put out a challenge for members to paint a different painting every day. Since I don't paint and I can make 31 items in 2 days, I decided to make 31 different items in January. Today I decided to make a wine bucket. This is a new item. I am posting photos of my process.
First I smooth my slab and cut out my shape using a newspaper template. Next using stamps I made, I texturize my slabs.
That was all I planned but then I thought it needed more so I added a dragonfly at the top, curved the top back and added cutouts for handles,
This is a new item and I can't wait to see it completely finished.
Also I have a few custom orders from Etsy that came in during December to work on as well.
My mom came to visit. We went to Charleston for a few days, went to the festival of lights and a Holiday dinner Cruise. Then we came back to Charlotte for a few days, then headed to our cabin near Bat Cave, NC for Christmas. Watched the Hunger Games movie and now I have started reading the whole series just so that I can know the end of the story and not have to wait for the last movie. My husband, my mom and I all got the flu for about a week. Luckily my kids did not get sick. I had a New Years Eve party with 20 of my friends. We played a card game called Nerts. Today I back at work and ready for 2015.
