My First SKELLY!


And I owe the inspiration to my good friend and fantastic artist Pam aka yoborobo!
Check out her wonderful blog at : http://yoborobo.blogspot.com/
and her Etsy shop!
She is an awesome artist who creates the coolest plushies and paintings!

She LOVES Skellys!
 I love following her blog and I am one of her biggest fans. Her posts are always so warm and funny! It's like sitting down for coffee with a great friend chatting about art, kids, PETS, the weather or whatever comes up in her creative mind. She is the one nicest people that I've never met! LOL!
So... after seeing all the fabulous skellys that she has created I decided to give it a try! I'm still experimenting and trying to find my way as I create my "dolls". (I personally find myself liking the painting part much more than the sewing!)
Now that I have finished my Skelly, I plan to start on the next project (the one with the metal base) and I think that I will go into an entirely different direction!

Love love love!!! Good Morning Cindi!! I just got up at 3am. I just opened my eyes and up ready to take on the morning. Thinking too much about projects I want to do... happy happpy!!!

Well sweetie!! You are doing fabulous with your new creations I tell you. You are one awesome chic!! And I'm happy you enjoy my pieces!

Changing the subject - does your cat touches your face at night while he is cuddling with you while sleeping? My cat does this every night and it's sooo cute but his claws are sharp and sticks them slightly on my cheeks while he purring away.

Well Good Morning and have an awesome day at your studio creating painting lovely works of art.

Oh My Gosh Magaly! 3:00 AM! That's SO Early!
I'm usually up at 5:30 and that's early enough for me!
I have decided to put your beautiful prints in my bedroom. The walls are a bright lime green and I have some prints by Annora Spence and some bright watercolors of dogs in there and I LOVE waking up to all those so of course your artwork will fit right in! LOL! (I love it so!)
About my kitties - I trim down the tips of their nails constantly with nail clippers so that helps with the claw problem most of the time! But at night they stay off of the bed because a couple of my little dogs are allowed to sleep with me and they are possessive and chase my cats off!
Have a Great Day! XOXO - Cindi

Wyanne! I had NO IDEA that you visited my blog!
I love you art, your studio, your daughter, your bird and the way your mind works! Gosh, I'm gushing now but any time I get discouraged I just go back and watch some of your videos. (Oh, and love your taste in music! LOL!)
XOXO

CINDI!!!! A completely awesome skelly! I love it! And thank you so much for all your sweet words. You are da BEST! I, too, like the painting/embellishing much better than the sewing part. :) It's like icing the cake! Thank you, sweetie - much love to you - Pam
