I don't understand why anyone would want to watch that. But then I don't understand a lot of things.
So, the title of this post has nothing to do with some grizzly horror movie. Nope it has to do with 2 amazing artists.
The first one most of you might know. I think I originally saw her "cat face" on a comment somewhere but I don't remember where exactly. I just thank my lucky stars that I found her. But if you haven't been so fortunate, here she is!
OK, that's not Sandy herself. That's one of her creations. She is super talented and creates just the coolest and sometimes eeriest pieces of work. Sometimes it's painted cloth dolls.
Or creations mounted on cut-out pieces of wood. That she's cut with her scroll SAW.
I own Ella and Isabella. They are happy in my kitchen and make me happy everyday seeing them there.
After seeing her work, I wanted a saw too! Not that the SAW itself had anything to do with the awesomeness of her art. But still....I wanted one.
Here's a clock that she made!
Check out Sandy's Blog
and her Etsy shop -
then one day, I'm leaving her a comment and I see a comment from someone else who is talking about HER saw.
What?! She has a SAW too! I had to check out this Robin Kent.
Can you believe this? Another fabulous artist!
She SAWS up wood and creates fantastic art
or she paints really great paintings.check out her blog!-
Now I wanted a SAW more than ever!
Then a couple of months ago, my step-grandfather had to go into a nursing home. He is elderly and has many health issues. He can no longer care for himself so my step-mom decided to clean out his home and put it on the market. She told me that she didn't want to mess with a garage sale and that she was going to drop everything off at Goodwill. So....I said, "Does he have a scroll saw that you are getting rid of?" Well, ofcourse she didn't know what a scroll saw was but her husband said- Yes there was one! So I asked how much they wanted for it and she said it was FREE.
Yep, just the right price for my budget!
They dropped it off the other day.
I put it inside my front porch...I don't really want to work in the drab basement, but I don't think it would be a good idea to run it in my room. Maybe I'll take it to the backyard and set it up on the picnic table and work out there!
And what am I going to create?
I have no idea.
But - I got me a saw and that's a start.
