Black Goddesses and T-Shirt Vamps

This is one of my latest Doll Creations. She is on her way to my swap partner. The theme was Black Goddess and this is how she turned out. These dolls are so much fun and I am already signed up for another "Goddess" swap.

The rest of this blog was written by my girl, Melody of Handmade Dork. She came out and played with us at Scary Craft Night, and I didn't realize how sneaky she was being with her camera. :O.
*************************************************** I went to the last Scary Craft's Night of the Crafters (which is a monthly get-together, every fourth Tuesday of the month at Side Show Studios, with artists and crafters in the Sac area) where we learned (some of us more quickly than others) how to reconstruct old tees. It was great to see some peeps I haven't seen in months and to learn new things about my comfort levels with scissors and the use of the word, "wonky." Trust me, everything about my project is "wonky."

At the helm, was Sam Marie who is as sweet as can be (um, and mass patient with my annoying ass). She's been destroying and restroying tees since she was in junior high, so no better instructor could have been found on the subject. However, Sacred Snatch (Yoli) brought a book that gave people further inspiration.

Coping a feel? What happens in Side Show Studios stays in Side Show Studios.

Rain and her mom cut it UP!

Ms. Cy of Side Show took about five seconds to whip this up and was the envy of the room:

A great time was had by all and a barrel full of delicious caramel corn was consumed (the stuff was GOOD).

Here I am being coached by the lovely Sam Marie.

Being the slow learner I am, I had to take my project home. I'm also a slow producer, so, without further ado, here is my WIP:

Only one more strap to go! I'll post a blog on that in '09 when it's done.

Thanks for the fun, girls!

Another community crafting opportunity is offered by the Sacramento Craft Mafia. Every second Tuesday we hold a Coffee N Craft Along at Java Lounge. The more chances to craft with the peeps, the better! So, come and join!
