That Time Again

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 28, 2014, 9:43 PM

It's time once again for our local art council's Beaux Arts Ball and once again I've donated my time to make five masks for the Ball. unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures :( I'll correct this though and post some. In the meantime, please support local arts and crafts whenever you can. When you really look around you'd be amazed at the number of art openings, local theater productions, workshops and craft fairs going on.  

*~*~Well, no one got the 35,000 pageview Kiriban, so let's try this again. This time around I'm offering points!  Screen capture either 38,000 pageviews here on dA or be the 50th person to Like  my Facebook business page (link above) and I'll give you 400 dA points. You need to send me a note with the screen capture to get the points. Good luck!*~*~*


I'm taking custom orders again here and at my Etsy site which can be found Just send a note. 

Custom Order Price List:

- Brocade masks: $35-$43, dependent on the cost of the embellishments.
- I can create a less expensive brocade mask for $20 each. It will not have a felt back, layered trims or a handmade fascinator. Contact me for a sample picture.

- Mulberry paper/flower masks, $35
- Handmade papier mache imp, goblin or bird/feather masks: $55-70 depending on complexity.

- Leather and lace or brocade eye mask - $34 to 38
- Victorian Ornaments: $16

Please take a second to like it. It only takes a second and I'll greatly appreciate it :) 



Sanitizing Feathers

When researching the proper way to sanitize bird feathers I came upon a lot of information - some of it good, some of it not so good and some of it just plain confusing. I have summarized the most useful info here in a blog on the subject:…

Help! I'm thinking of renaming my dA site & online venues (Etsy, Goodsmith', etc). Which name do you like best?
