Usualy I dont bother with resolutions. it seems pretty useless to me ,but I think its great now for art goals.

Ive already set my goals for this year. Last two years I decided to do more of the type of "risky" in the unsaleable sence... work that was inside my head and I have!:D So glad about it too because before I fealt Id plateaued and wasnt growing anymore.
So, this year my goals are to further use referance to bring up the level of my work and to stretch a bit to experiment with assmemblage/ mixed media and my clay.

Been overwelmed with lots to do on gasoline fumes,but had to take a moment to give thanks to ((((((^Thebuild)))))) virtual hugs for the DD on my peice "Still she has no name" also for all the  awesome comments! This sculpt means alot to me so, her being chosen for a DD is great!
I was realy surpised that she was also cited for being  unlabeled mature subject matter!  Uh ok.. I dont get that. No nudity, violence or obscene material,but this affirms that I have a miracualous "gift" of disturbing some folks without really trying! My peice Violet was also ousted from Myspace for its innocent nudity. 14yr olds mustnt see blurry fairy doll nipples it can make them go off in a phycotic rage you see. heh heh
happy shiney new year to all- Nita

You know I was wondering that too. Somebody reccomends you for a DD. Ive looked so I could recommend others I think deserve a DD ,but I dont see how to do it.
You can only qualify every 3 months and your thumbmail shows on the featured pics at the bottom for a day.

:) yup Im really enjoying Amulet..almost to the point I dont want her to be done and have to move on.
Ive always had a vision a little off center of the fairy market ,though I love all fantasy subject matter since I was a wee lass!
Now I think commissons will be fine for me. I just hope collectors find me on etsy and here. Im giving up my website. Ill blog instead I think it will be more interesting.

Alot of us OOAK sculptors took a hit this year even the ones who were making 2k last year.
All this year was if and when and wait and see nad wait some more.Now some good things are actualy visible on the horizon.

Yup Im thinking of trying to be more flexible offer less expensive items and promote more. I kept getting sick this year though so Im falling behind on the beads,bases and everything. I need octopus arms.

People always will need magic.

Im excited about what Ill make this year!

I just discovered a new wing method that I like better than the plastic ones.That was vexing me for a long time. Plus I got some perfect tiny glass lenses that will let me make relique nitcho so you can see into a figure. Im sculpting an ornate frame right now to place a smallchild figure in..larkin's fault.
Plus the stock resources are realy good incentive to try some differnt things.
