progress on lots of things....
Number 1 on the list....the taxes are all done....YIPPEEE!! So nice to have that out of the way so early in the year.
I finished the mini giraffe last night. He's sooooo cute! It feels really strange to take a marker and color all over a piece, but that's the way to get his spots on. Then he spent some time under the hair dryer to set the color....very nice.
Work continues on the frame for the icon. Gold paint (two coats already) has been applied and is drying. It looks amazing.
Oh yes, there was also the "playing in the mud" exercise yesterday....building an ice mountian (out of a foam hill, no doubt) with paper mache....it looks good but will probably take 3 or 4 days to totally dry...the joys of winter, this stuff just takes longer to dry when the ambient temperature in the house is only 58 degrees....
So now, time to work on more leaves for the necklace and making faces for the icon...should be an interesting day!
