Hi there! Here is my new doll, Ellowyne Wilde displaying two shrink film drawings. Yes, we are obsessed! And why not? It is a fun and portable craft that is extremely satisfying to shrink. Andrew has made tons of charms and we've gotten our friends involved in the 'madness' so everyone around us is making them.

I've been cooking a lot, making slow cooked beef over parmesan polenta and my tasty chocolate gravy over biscuits for breakfast. The GGS team pretty much loves to eat and craft. If you come for a visit, plan on feasting then making stuff till the wee hours of the morning. Bob brought a fancy 1000 dollar espresso machine so we've been jacked up and slap happy while making art. Always a good combination.

I can't stop staring at my new dolls. They look nice with my Blythes. I am a smitten kitten, I just got another on ebay, like some sort of addict. Everyone is so tired of listening to me go on and on about the quality of the resin, how beautiful her clothes are and how gorgeous her face is. I also ordered books so I can make clothes for her, I might just turn into a doll artist!

Of course, that would be dreamy, but unlikely, as we have bead shows to do! The Central California Bead Society hosts a show in Fresno this Sunday and Greg will be there along with our friends from Bead Trust. I wish I could go, because I love that part of the country and wouldn't mind visiting my buddies! I will be attending The Soft Flex Honolulu Show with most of the gang (Andrew, Greg and Azalea), so if your lucky and live on Oahu, stop by and say hello! Also, if you mention this blog (at either show), you get a free pewter bead! Ok, back to work!

I think Hawaii is the smarter destination.....since you had a choice!
Best of luck at both shows this weekend. I snuck out, will be torching all weekend....yay!

Have fun in Honolulu! Wish that I'd be there - Scott & Mike cover that show (big surprise). :)

She's lovely! I'm getting hungry just reading your blog. Wish I could smell your kitchen right now...yum gravy and bisquits.

I have to admit all this talk of shrink film has me really intrigued...I loved playing with the stuff as a kid. Maybe it's time for a trip to the local craft store?? See, your madness is reaching all the way to California!

Sara & Carter-
I can't wait to go to Hawaii! I love the island/surfer lifestyle! Partly because I'm terrified of deep water and can't swim. I know, a floridian that can't swim...weird.

Thanks! I love Ellowyne more than chocolate! We do love to eat, come on over for dinner! In fact Andrew just fixed sweet corn salad, mustard potato salad and roasted chicken for was so good.
