A Weekend of Creepies

I spent a pleasant weekend making up a batch of little creepies for Art-o-mat. I don't get to sculpt as much as I like to, so I made the most of it. I also made all the antlers for my next batch of jackalopes. I watched a bunch of bad movies and listened to 90s music. I can't think of a better working weekend. 
If you live in Omaha, you should come to Handmade Omaha's Art-o-mat class on October 2nd. I LOVE being an Art-o-mat artist, and so will you. More info here

Shooting in the Studio

I know I said I would accomplish this task an embarrassingly long time ago. I made up the remaining 100 or so necklace designs that weren't on the website. I planned on sitting right down and shooting and listing them. Then this, that, and the other just all hit me at once. 
I'm not complaining. I just usually work through my to-do lists a bit quicker. I guess that the holiday rush is building up and I better get my act together. 
That said, I'm very happy to have all these necklaces up. I love the larger canvas that a pendant gives me. They're lightweight and fun, and I can sell them at a very fair price. It's important to me that I sell something at a price I would pay. 
You can see all the necklaces here, I'm sure you'll find something to suit your fancy.

More Jackalopes

I don't like to post two days in a row about the same project, but I couldn't help but share this little cutie. When I do the same thing over and over, I tend to think of little ways I can tweak it to make it new again. For some reason, I came up with this little monstrosity. I really think it will come together when I add the antlers.

Making Jackalopes

There's nothing like the blank stares from adorable plastic eyes to cheer you up when you're feeling down. I love crocheting the little bunny faces that become magical jackalopes. I've been experimenting with making multicolored bunnies. I think they are particularly cute.
This guys will get antlers shortly. I can't wait to list some more online! I've been slacking in the online department. I need to dedicate a solid few days to photographing and listing very soon.
