Yes, you do see hot pink in that bunch of wool. Why shouldn't there be a hot pink pirate?
I'll also start stuffing mermaid tails. They're calling me too. Not so much a siren sound, more like a bunch of little kids and one big cardboard box. Both Wendys are getting a little impatient because the Spring and Halloween sprites are having a party with Oswin and his pals. They do make a great group. I'll have to take a pic.

So I put the pants on my little girls. The blue pair looked stunning.

I've also caught up on my Script Frenzy. I'm at 53 pages, the mid-point and will do lots more this week. Will have to upload everything next week.
Besides the job, on today's docket are spring sprites. They need pants. I will not have them hand around for two years like the Halloween Sprites and not get done. So, I'm going to go prep my work area for this evening. Good thing I've got food already prepared.

I am bound and determined to get 100 pages. I now have two scripts going at the same time. The first one, a drama, working title 'The Kitchen' has ten pages. The second one, working title 'New Sexy Life' is slightly erotic and has 25 pages. I would like to finish both, that would be the ultimate accomplishment.
I have checked back with Script Frenzy and the rules for those who are compelled to creatively torture themselves by writing two scripts. Since you can only upload one script, you can put the two scripts together (if one doesn't hit the 100 pages) and upload as one. So if one script is 40 pages and the other 75, you're good.
I know I will hit 50 pages by Sunday. It's time to pay a little attention to the drama. This is the easy part. The hard part is editing, rewrites, and correcting format.
I packed my truck to the gills and headed for new territory. I knew one person when I got here and I have many more new friends and I love them. The first year was spent getting use to the place, finding a job. The second year was settling in and developing a plan, remember why I made my move. The third year I claimed as my year to begin my creative journey all over again. Naysayers were slayed like dragons in my head. This fourth year, my work, determination, perseverance, and plain ole' being stubborn is starting to pay off. My new creative career has been launched.
I finally feel empowered. I am finally allowing the real Wendy Luane to come out and play. I like and appreciate every creative idea I have. They may not all work, but I gave them a shot. There are many more waiting in line. I crawled out of my box and like what I'm seeing and doing. If there was a failure, I pulled out the First Aid Kit, then took the next step. Was it scary? Yeah. Sometimes it still is and then I remember why I'm here.
I am a work in progress. I'm not done yet. My new journey has just begun.

I can only do so much. I have a big show in October, so making items for that is first and foremost. Hours at the job aren't what they use to be and I've started pieces for sale online. Work needs to be replaced at a gallery and shop in town. Work needs to be created for new shops and galleries.
Does that sound crazy? You know though, I feel great! I just write those ideas down, do little sketches and put them in my project book. This is the most I've been creative in a long time. I can actually say I'm proud of myself for what I've accomplished. I am definitely in kick butt mode, take no prisoners. You're either along for the wild and crazy ride or get off the space jet. Now that I've kinda, sorta figured out this Pay Pal thing, oh boy!
Last week, I worked on three projects, completed one commission, and got 17 new pages of script written. I am so smokin'.
This will be a finish up babies week. Start more of the same and get some new designs going. I will be able to get more pics up this week. Thanks for hanging around.

The latest bunners have heads. I've got tomorrow off so I guess I should give them arms. Still haven't pulled fabric for their clothes yet. I am not behind, I am not behind. Yeah, I'm trying to fool you too.
Debating on what yarn to use on my Halloween Sprites. I have to make a decision by tomorrow, they are chattering up a storm. Good Wendy is very happy, Bad Wendy is MIA. Witches are now whispering my name.
I'd also like to say hi Ascension of Mis Miniaturas, http://ascension-misniaturas.blogspot.com/. Welcome to the party.

I won't jump ahead of myself though. Bad Wendy hung around a good part of yesterday. I think she had Good Wendy tied up somewhere. I did manage to rally late last night and got five pages done for Script Frenzy. Less than the ten I wanted but more than the 3.33 I need per day. I've got to start being nicer to me.
I had to go grocery shopping this morning. I am grateful I had the money to do so and yes, I got something that wasn't on my list but is suppose to be good for me. I got dark chocolate. It was on closeout. They're not going to carry that brand anymore, so I got some. Okay, two for one. That'll put a smile on any one's face. That Harry Potter really had something going with the chocolate.
These guys don't look all that great. But I have three more bunners in the works. Gotta go through my mini stash and see what kind of Asian print fabric I've got. Needle felting like this is a bit different from cloth dolls. Each body has its own personality before I even pick fabric. I never got that with my cloth dolls. I would always pick the clothing fabric first, then make the doll. The outfit determined how I drew and painted the face.
I'm also getting better at moving pics around. I feel so 21st century. I just discovered I have Excel and PowerPoint on my laptop. I've had it for several months now. So terrified of pushing any button. I'm a little braver now (sporting a Wednesday Addams smile).
Now that I know I haven't blown my year. I know, it's just started, I guess I should get busy and stop being a dufus. That probably isn't a word but this is my blog.
Hugs to everyone!
