So many possibilities with the seahorse! I love seahorses, this will be fun and I am sure he was meant for wings.

I love that seahorse! It is so awesome. How are you going to fix the gnome? I am curious because I have a little garden girl whose feet broke off to fix.
I Love looking at your workroom too-that star in the corner is the bomb,and your cross up on the wall!

So I am using a cement product called "instant water plug" that I bought at a thrift store, so far I used it on the faerey and gnomes to fill in holes(leperosy) and add noses/wings/beards and now feet and fins!lol!
This spring clean up of my house and art room has sure inspired me!!!

I'm feeling like a lot of my brainstorms/projects are gonna be doable this year!!!

Lookin' good girlie! The face - got ideas yet on how you'll use that little beauty? I have a whole bunch of faces made from left over grout/mortar and just plain mortar - yesterday from mortaring a planter. Think I'll use them on a Riana-style totem, but the inspiration picture in my head hasn't shown up yet. Got any message to Riana you wanna send, CALAM? I'll be seeing her on Saturday. I'm so anxious to get there. I soooooo wish you and KLINGER could have gone this year.

I couldn't believe my eyes when I got that message - responded immediately. I am sooooooo glad to see that. There'll be more than two - I haven't been drinking cuz of the diet, and I plan to break that spell for that week for sure.
