Somethings beginning to stir...in the Twilight!

Well I knew it would return, my love of all things Vampire! When I was a kid, I use to ditch school or try and fake an illness (my mom was a registered nurse so that didn't work) to stay home to watch "Dark Shadows" a TV soap opera full of Vampires, Victorian Mansions, and time travel...just my cup of tea! Incidentally...Johnny Depp will be making the movie "Dark Shadows" soon and portraying Barnebas Collins The Main Vampire!(with Tim Burton's help) I personally have been waiting for Depp to be a Vampire for years. But Cedric Diggory isn't bad either!
"Twilight"... Loved it, The book and the movie, now "New Moon" is peeking through the clouds and I can feel a moon burn coming on, (Silly huh?) but fun. New Moon photos on "you tube" gave me chills and made me cry. If you haven't read the book don't go look because there's a spoiler, if you have read the book...check it out. It's really nice to see!
One more thing about my dark side...I write bad poetry, I will now subject everyone who is bored enough to read my scribblings!
Thank you, Misty
Moonlight

As the sun leaves the sky, the moon rises above, I wait in my chamber for my one true love.

He is there at my window, bathed in the moonlight...my heart skips a beat as he comes into sight.

As I beckon him in and I nod my consent, he crosses the threshold and makes his descent.

Touching my skin with his cool, smooth hands, I kiss his lips sweetly and I await his demands.

I feel safe and alive, while in his embrace then I look in his eyes as he kisses my face.

There's something within that I can't recognize, it's hidden down deep in the depths of his eyes.

My body betrays me...as he kisses my neck his lips feel like fire as they continue thier trek.

His mouth glides like silk to the pulse of my heart, then with no hint of warning, he halts with a start.

The pain is exquisite, as it floods through my viens, my lips part to scream but in silence I remain.

I lie still as he feeds, his long hair on my breast, I am so sad to find... life's no longer my quest!

Just a couple things...





Just a few polished stones I had sitting around the house. I thought they might look good cocooned in polymer clay and hanging on a necklace! Also a mask I made a couple years ago...it's name is Jealousy!

Everybody loves Dunkin' Donuts!



If you notice the change in the dragon from the last pic it means my Barber shop was slow this morning or I couldn't have gotten this much done! My coffee is sitting there just for scale.

Riches from the Arctic...



Thanks to Jay and his beautiful, cool friend Maizy, I have hair for my next unicorn. There will be a wonderful mane and forelock. Jay has some great stuff you won't beleive for doll and fairy sculpters, He makes life a lot easier! Check out his sight. And a thank you goes out to Sprite for the directions to http://www.arcticfantasy.com/ aad Jay! Couldn't be happier!

A little more progression...


These dowels will support the screen I'll be using to create his organic armor! I have not drilled for the two main horns yet!

Here we go again...




Just the beginning, I'm back to that ever popular S--T stage! I'm always relieved when and if it progresses past this point! This last pic is my reference photo, I'll be constructing wire mesh and dowels for his embellishments!

Mermaid lightercase...




My newest Lighter case is finished.

Unicorn

I finished my unicorn and have started a larger one. This one is just baby. I went and saw Star Trek, I've been a trekkie for years and I knew I'd have to see it good or bad. I went with my two daughters 32, 36 we all loved it! It was a great ride. I'll have to go see it again soon!
I would love to write more of what's happening in my life or my thoughts, such as they are...but I need a new computer! I am not really great at typing and I thought I was an excellent speller (is that a word?) until I used "spell check" for the first time. My computer skips backwards...my key board, that is and it's so much correcting, it drives me crazy! I never can really enjoy putting down a paragraph because it's usually messed up. So if the Money Gods smile upon me in the near future, I could be writing more and posting more often, I'm not sure that's a good thing! Anyway until then...there will be more photos.

WIPs well on their way to being finished!



My two latest ventures. I am about to begin a large unicorn, and on that one I'd like to put the angora goat hair. I spoke to a gentleman that Sprite told me about, his name is Jay at arctic fantasy.com he just finished shearing a goat named Maisey so that may be part of my unicorn's hair. Check out his web sight you'll be surprised...I have to go back and buy some stuff after I get my unicorn out of the barn. Jay lives in Alaska...when you shear a goat there, do you think he gives them sweaters afterwards? He seems very nice, I'm sure he does!!!

WIPer




I decided I couldn't wait the the hair. I will possibly put angora on the next unicorn which will be larger. I went ahead and scupted his hair. The strange pattern on the hide in the middle photo, is the light coming in from the screen door in the back of my shop.

Another WIP..."Whale Song"!




Okay ... I have to order some unicorn hair, so this has slowed down my momentum. In the mean time, I took this sculpture which I shelved a while back, off the shelf... and began playing with it. It's very strange. I'm gonna call it "Whale Song". It is in the WIP stage I'm adding to it! It must be sanded and primed and painted, but I think it's getting interesting!

Update on my WIPper snapper!



Now I need to get some beautiful soft angora goat hair and he'll be a unicorn. Does any one have a web sight I can go to to purchase the hair?
