These two were made especially for two great-grandchildren I seldom see but they are very special to me, They are Ellie and Diesel. The antique bird goes to Ellie—The parrot and 2 little cars goes to Diesel. Their big brother Jaden is very close with me.
Good Sunday morning—Some will say it is “The Lord’s day”—Some will say Saturday is the true “Sabbath”. I say, every day is God’s day and he is enjoying me being on this earth. His arms encircle me or I will truly fall, spiritually and physically! God has a purpose for me or I wouldn’t be here. He gave me the best soulmate partner wife, Arleney who always encourages me. I am so wealthy with what God has given me. I am grateful!
I just got a load of new Apoxie Sculpt–direct from the Maker–And it was raining gently. What a crazy time to try something a little different—So I have this basically square wooden finial , a little larger than the one I usually use, and I decided to make a larger “Mushroom”. And off go. I prepare the finial and I guess at he amount of Apoxie (wrong– too much) and I did not take into count the humidity. It was not long before the Apoxie became like quick sand, devouring what I was placing into it. Two hours later I was still fighting it and it had taken a floppy shape of its own. Well the average “Mushroom” weighs just about one pound—this weighs almost three pounds and has way too much money tied up in the crystals, etc—many buried and no one will ever see them again. I am not going to do that again! I dodged a bullet by waiting until it had almost set up, the I gently added some small chains and other light items, placing them gently onto the Apoxie.—Oh yes, The bird was finished by me in 1-Shot enamel and was placed onto the “Mushroom” adding before the Apoxie.
Folks, I never dreamed of what is happening with the “Mushrooms” and I give all credit to Daughter Cindy F. in Utah for placing them on a site where this could happen. I am going to change a couple of things. My heart goes out to children so some “Mushrooms” will be more children oriented. I want children to know they are special and that will be my goal. —I want everyone to feel good but children, after this next batch, will be my focus for a little while.
This is somewhat difficult for me so please bear with me. My original website www.gravescountry.com is no longer working as Adobe Flash terminated. I can no longer upload on it.
