Hi everyone and thanks for visiting my blog!! 
I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween or Harvest Day. 
A big THANK YOU!!! to those of you that have visited Bear and Bird Gallery for the Candy Apples and Razor Blades show, there is still time until mid-November to see all ofthe great artists that participated or to purchase a piece of art. 

I have been working on my new pieces for the Small Stuff 3 show coming up in November 22, I will post them next week after I hand them over to the gallery. 

In the meantime here are a few pics of my face ups done on my Ball Jointed Dolls (BJD's). The large one is a Bobobie Sprite in white and the small one is a planet doll Tara in white.
They were done in a big hurry (about 45 minutes!)because I just couldn't wait to see what they looked like behind all of that white resin. I made the Tara wig out of mohair but I need to fix it and style it better. As soon as I sew them some outfits and get them entirely blushed i will take some final shots and post them.

If you want to see them full size, check out my flickr account
Bye for now!

Congratulations on being in the show! It looks wonderful! Did you sell your precious piece?
And your faceups on the BJD's are gorgeous! I have one BJD that I adore.. they are so much fun to play with!
I can't wait to see what you come up with for your next show! Keep us posted!

as always, Thanks Joanna, for your support and all of your kind words.
I love BJD's! I have trying to make one that I am truly happy with so that I can offer some limited editions of my own, but I think that's further down the line.

I don't know if my piece sold yet-if it doesn't, its probably going on etsy or ebay.

I have already turned in 2 drawing and a small sculpt for the Small Stuff 3 show. Now I am working on some commission pieces and some jewelry.

Big Hugs,

Don't forget to show us your 'Small Stuff' pieces Rosanna! And keep me updated if your pieces go to Etsy! I would love to have one...
I have only ever tried one time years ago to do a BJD... It did not suit me. I have no patience for the mechanical aspect of it. I am all about painting & fabrics...LOL
