Have a heart...

Got another give away going on over here...

Just sayin'...

27 September 2014

And, it's only Saturday...

Some mystical time warp is going on (thank goodness), or, maybe it's just fall and everything seems more laid back to me... but it's ONLY Saturday and I've already done the grocery shopping, cleaned the house, made my peanut butter and oat snacks, and, AND finished the laundry.

You know what that means don't ya?  Means all I have to do now is play...

I started her last week and finished her last night...

And I've done her... not sure if she's finished yet though.  But I'm not sure what more I'd add either.  I'll have to give that some thought.

Now I'm going to go get started on that mail art.  Y'all have signed up to play in the exchange, have't you???

What?  You haven't?  Why not?  This is a great group of folks... and we love it when people join us!  You don't have to consider yourself a "real" artist, you don't have to be a professional artist... all you have to do is be willing to have some fun.  Come on over to this post and let me know you want to play!

In case anyone has missed it...

I've been giving away several colored doodle prints over on Facebook....
I've given this one away...

And this one...

And this one's up for grabs right now... until it's given away on Friday.

And, don't forget, there's a class starting on the 26th...

And, if that weren't enough.... I'm giving away one of the dolls I made...

Esmerelda is looking for a new home... will it be with you?  Find out how it can be here.

And, for heaven sake... don't forget we're doing a mail art exchange too... you can find out all about that here.

Things are picking up around here again!

Picking the ball up...

Well, we all know that I dropped the ball on the last mail art exchange.  I got it announced, had several who wanted to participate... one of my partners from Italy wanted an early assignment because she was going on vacation.  Another emailed me to let me know she had an international stamp she wanted to use... seemed a match made in heaven, so they got assigned early on.

That was about it though, because right after that the ball dropped.  So, I missed everything else, and am kinda-sorta-almost getting myself back together (or at least I'm trying really hard to get myself back in order), so it's time to begin again...

So here we go... it's a mail art call!

Actually, two of them.  Since I didn't get to do July, I'm going to run it the same time... you can pick which theme you want, or participate in both , or heck, combine them... if you'd like.  

Themes:  Desiderata and/or Black and White

Sign ups:  September 22 through September 30

Partner assignments:  No later than October 2nd

Mail out:  October 11th (yes, I know, lots faster than usual... but that way we can get the final mail art call in too!)

Fees:  None on my end, but you do have to pay for the postage to mail your art

Rules:  If you want to play leave me a comment or email me (email in the left side bar).  If you sign up, please do play, it's no fun if you don't!

So, who's in?

I'm teaching...

So, it's official, I'm teaching again!  This time it's a class to teach the Wee Witch.  You remember her...

The class begins on September 26th, and you can sign up and participate any time until we close the class.  The closing date isn't set, we'll close it when registration begins to slow.  This is an online format, you get the pattern, 4 lessons, and access to me to answer any questions you might have.  The fee for the class is $29.00.  Where am I teaching?  At Doll Street Dreamers... you can find all the information here.

Those of you who read me know that I like to celebrate things like this, and this time is no different...

Wee Witch has a cousin, Esmerelda. 

They both have those magical boots...

They both have pet spiders...

And, there's a distinct family resemblance, don't you think?

Esmerelda is going to leave me though, and I want her to have a good home... so, who among you is going to volunteer to have her come live with you?

Anyone?

She doesn't take up much room, she's only about 12 inches tall, and that includes her hat.  She's got a sewn and stuffed body that has been hand painted and embellished.  She wears a fabric skirt with a fabulous petticoat under. Esmerelda is jointed at her elbows, knees and top of legs so that she can sit and dangle her legs over a shelf or book... she's perfect to sit around for Halloween.

Here are the rules:

If you follow my blog (and I will check check to make certain that you do, if I don't find you among the followers and your name is drawn you will be disqualified), you may have one entry.

If you have liked the Facebook page for ACreativeDreamer (you can find that here) you may have one entry.

If you follow me on Pinterest (here), you can have yet another entry... And Google+ (here) can even give you one more...

Be sure to leave one comment for each entry in the comments section so that you can have as many entries as applies to you.

AND, if you take the class, you get 10 bonus entries to thank you for supporting my artistic efforts!

The winner will be chosen at random on October 17th and I will allow entries right up until the minute the winner is chosen.  The name of the winner be posted here on the blog in the 17th.  That winner will have 48 hours to send me their mailing address.  If I have not received it by then I will choose another winner.

Anyone have any questions?  You can ask them in the comment section (that will not count as an entry), or you can email me with them if you'd rather (the email is in the left side bar of the blog).

Let's begin...

(Disclaimer:  This is an ART DOLL, not a play doll.  There are pieces that could be hazardous to small children, so please do not allow them to touch.)
