well... it was almost exactly one year ago when my snow people hit the cover of the fabulous Cloth Paper Scissors magazine. it was my son's 15 birthday (which is another story in itself) and a friend called me to say....they're on the cover! i thought???what cover????...it was a great surprise and i received emails from people all over the world about these snow people... well it is time for round 2 snow people style...my favorite part of creating these is checking out flea markets and yard sales for vintage bits i can use in these pieces... jacks,pastry tips,jewelry pieces are collected and stored to use....which brings me back to my constant mantra...you either get the -collecting-junk-you-can-use-in-your-art thingy or you don't. me???? i've never met an art pack rat i didn't like. wish these guys well as they are off to various shops for YIKES the holidays. peace.
