For each one of you that responded to my face questions... thank you! I appreciate it. There is an artist that was looking for feedback, likes, dislikes as she is looking at possibly creating faces in the future as well as other parts we can use in our dolls or other creations. I like to know what others are doing or are looking for in faces and should any other artists stop in and read the post and responses - they might find it useful.
I also wanted to draw your attention a couple of places to buy some neat stuff.
The first is one is a favorite artist that creates amazing raku pieces. Her name is Lisa Peters and for those that remember my March BJP page - she is the one that created the cute little chick I incorporated into that page.
She is having a end of summer sale in her Esty store - I keep going back to see if there is anything I must have, but I get stuck because there is so much I'd like to call mine! If you like raku or have a fondness for nicely created ceramic pieces, you really should take a look.
The next one is Unusual Goods Beadshop. I originally found them through Ebay, but now they have a storefront on the web. Lots of vintage stuff - nailheads (in many different colors, shapes and sizes), beads and sequins, everything I have received from them has been wonderful. I just placed an order through their website and anxiously await the arrival of that package.
I have no affiliation with either of these shops, I just like their stuff! That's all I have for now. I hope you're having a great last weekend of summer for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere anyway!
Leaves of Grass
This is what you shall do: Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body - Walt Whitman
