Default Art unleashed in progress step 2

progress on art unleashed donation teapot fired fine. now to complete two cups the right size. First two attempts are too big.

running out of time



THe other teapot the handle pulled away, it was too dry when I attatched it and I rushed the process of drying all together so it is my own fault. It can still be used, and will now be our play "tea party" tea pot. Aiden my grandson really likes to pour our "tea" with it.

Like how you have the two dogs trying to play with each other.

I absolutely adore your teapots. They are amazing.

I hope someone at the auction feels the same way. I made a teapot because the groundhog one turned out so much to my liking, I do not like the lid on this one as much as the ground hog, that is a very hard turn collar and turn to work out of a bowl, I do not cut and add, I don't know how to explain it, but you just keep turning it and touching it just so to make it go where you want it to go. Takes forever. I know there are teapot collectors out there, so I was hoping that would help in the donation end of things. I was happy with the coloring of the little dog with the sticks on top. That turned out better than I had guessed and I will do that again on something. I did not have any porcelain, so I went to the recycle bin at the guild and found about an inch glob of it which I diluted into slip and added mason stain. The teapot is glazed on the inside. It pours well, my second try dribbled so it's no big deal that the handle pulled away, I wouldnt' have used it pouring like that. I am still new to spouts. THanks for the words of encouragement. I will donate this, a bird or so, and my two guys and a dog if the dog works being reifred, the guys didn't turn out like I had thought, but I am not disappointed. NOt a big donation from me this year, but it's been a very expensive and stressful year that just keeps giving. So I doubt I will finish anything else in time.

My pieces are dropped off. There is the My sticks not Yours teapot, a large water bird, and the little cinders cat. I walked right out the door without the boys and the dog, but I am not too whoopie about them anyway, so I will refine it, probably re do it and give it next year. Cross your fingers they bring in good donations. THe auction is in just a couple weeks.
Due to Pepper's most expensive leg injury, and driving the truck through the garage door by not putting it in gear, I wish I could do more, but these three pieces I think are nothing to sneeze about. I had wanted to do a couple cats that they told me about. Where the finances started my donation decline, the babies staying all summer finished off any hopes of getting anything else done. I hate excuses, but these reasons are just unavoidable facts. I know for sure I have donated for a decade, might be longer, I am no good at keeping track of time.

Mine are not on here yet..because I just dropped them off, but here are some of the other donations if you like to look at animal artwork, and the people who cared enough to send it in. https://qtego.net/auc/2013artunleash...ex.php?next=30

I wish I would have packed them better. It's my own fault if they get broken. I am afaid right now I am a walking wreck. Hyia had 2 doc appts this week, the kittens were a drive across town, I am a summer behind with babies and Jory, I just threw them in my basket that I use to go back and forth to the guild and dropped them off that way. I had forgotten today was the deadline, and just everything is a dither with school starting, and enrollment and back for meet and greet. I forgot plain and simple. I have lost myself in all these children this year. Hopefully I can soon get some of me back to me.

I have been invited to the Patron and Artist dinner with a guest the week before the auction, I said I would go, but but but but but.....
I hope it is a very casual affair because I don't have clothes. And the shoe issue is a nightmare. I walked through the joint of my big toe a whole long time ago, and my rocket dogs are right now the only shoes I can get on my feet and walk, and they have holes in the side. Guess I could be the eccentric one that shows up in mason stain spotted jeans and holes in my shoes...sighs. But maybe I can find something somewhere. I sent a request to know if it is casual or not. When you don't date, and your just a Nanamama you don't worry about things like haircuts or holes in your knees ....all my funds go to the children. It isnt' like I can just go to a store and find something that fits either. I have to special order my jeans because I guess 0 talls are not carried in any store that I can find. I hate clothes shopping. I have lost so much weight that my dresses and skirts are all too big. Dunno..what I should do. I would like to go, for no other reason then a really good free meal and a room full of grown ups. Around here sentences are MINE SHOES....and yeah yeah yeah THAT. WHen I ask Aiden to speak in a sentence and say now can you say that? Yeah yeah yeah THAT. If it wasn't for this place and face book I would probalby forget how to talk to adults all together. I talk with my MOther every morning. She has me call her to make sure she isn't dead, so SHaffer won't have to wait too long to go out and potty but that is pretty much it for anyone over 13 for the day.

that is pretty fabulous smkie! I hope you go--what an honor to be asked. You can figure out the clothing--any thrift store options? When is the dinner?
