Bear and Bird and Steampunk

I had a great time at the opening of the Me Me Me show at Bear and Bird Gallery. A local reporter wrote this small piece about the gallery show and I was so honored that my work was called beautiful and that among 150+ artists I was mentioned. Also I want to thank Amanda for being so nice to me and my hubby. She really was the hostess with the mostess, she was awesome as she greeted everyone of us, chatted and snapped pics while the large crowds moved around her.  
She has invited me to participate in a workshop this summer.  I will keep you all posted. 

On to another topic

This is what I do when stuff breaks in my house. I have had this broken camera in a storage box and I wanted to see what the inside looked like so I took it apart. I was amazed by all of the gears, it looks so steampunk!!  For those of you that don't know what Steampunk means, its a merge of victorian, sci-fi, fantasy and technology. If I had the knowledge or skill, all my gear (electronics) would be done in a steampunk style.

 This is a great example of steampunk! 
sorry-I found this picture a while ago but I don't know who to credit
whoever you are you do awesome work!

Bear and Bird Boutique and ADO

Hi Everyone!! I'm getting ready for the Bear and Bird Gallery show this weekend. Here's a link to their site for those of you that want to attend the show(Thanks Amy).
Bear and Bird Boutique + Gallery
I apologize to any of you that I haven't been able to answer back. I've been working on several projects at once for some future shows so I haven't been able to visit my online friends very much.  
Big Hugs to all my pals at ADO, here's my Creepy Cute Ophelia. This is my interpretation or vision of Ophelia after she was found dead in the shallow water among the flowers she licked to pick. She was placed gently on a hollow log until it was decided what would be done with her, was this a suicide over heartbreak or had she slipped and fallen to her death??

Sorry for the quality of the pics, I WILL learn how to take great pictures one day-but not today.
