Mardi Gras is eating my brain! I have two weeks to finish off the last few masks and then its Beltane ball masks already. Once that rush is taken care of I have an entire wedding to mask.... Its a good bit of work that I'm not used to having. I'm not complaining but I need to learn how to manage my time a little better if I'm going to make art and try to work.

The move is getting so close. The new house needs carpet, the kitchen painted and retiled, linoleum pulled out of the laundry room, a tree cut out of the back yard, the hall painted, the stairs and cork floor refinished....I know I'm leaving something out, oh yeah, then we have to move everything in!. I want to be in before the end of March. It shouldn't be too big of a stretch but it won't be easy either.

Enough ranting, PHOTOS!

I'm really happy with how the first round of hair things turned out. Most of them sold before I could get pictures so I'll take that as a good sign. I've been needing something more affordable to try and sell on Etsy and vending booths. I know that money is tight and dropping 100 bucks on a mask is damn hard to justify sometimes.

















I've never worked with crystal on a mask before but I think that I liked the way that this one turned out. The only instruction that I was given: Pink and black, sparkles and feathers. I wanted to try and make it mature and finished while still packing a punch for mardi gras. I won't know just how successfull I've been at that until its 100% done.

How many do you have commissioned for the wedding?

I'm not quite sure yet but I'd guess about a dozen
