I could not figure out how to depict me.  Do I show the real me, the inner me or just how I dress every day to work or how about how I would look if I didn't have a Government job?  So I decided to show the three faces of me and how they all blend together to create the real me.

My entry is the sculpture at the end.  However, to get there you have to understand the significance of each individual piece. So I have photos of each piece.

The first me.....boring work me, suits. Red hair....which I think will be making a come back soon but not so plain Jane and let's hope not so frazzled!! But that is one side of me,  in a suit running around being the ultra professional.

Pinky playing grown up


Then there is what I like to call "Glam Pam"  This is where the blond hair comes from and my LOVE of accessories and fashion! I would LOVE to have one of those nighties with the feather trim with the matching shoes and just flounce around all day sipping cocktails as I make appointments to get massages, facials, and other such vital engagements! You know just hang out and be fabulous!

Total dream world! My only glam Pam reality is blond hair and the love of fashion and the occasional manicure.

Pinky as TOTAL glam Pam Please note her shoes....


She looks like a model in this shot it cracks me up!


Here is the other side of me....my punk rock heart.  It does not reach the surface much any more due to my conservative work place but when it does it is in the form of heavy make up, my shiny vinyl tank dress, and combat boots.

Punk Rock Pinky


So what do you get when you combine this vastly different personality types besides inner turmoil?

Here is me on a day when I don't have to wear a suit:



And here is the sculpture representing how you can live with all of these different personalities within one person.

The sculpture is my actual Craft Challenge 9 entry.  It just took me forever to explain all of the parts so they would make sense.

The combined me is sitting a top of the others....serving as an overseer, keeping the others in line.....She is top dog!








I hope you like it.! It was a lot of fun to put together.  Especially Glam Pam!  It is not often you get to work with sparkly chiffon, rhinestones, and feathers!

Thank you!  I was actually VERY surprised at how the Glam Pam turned out.  I actually bought 1/8th of a yard of green iridescent taffeta to use as back up.  That's my favorite fabric. I was going to make a glamorous old Hollywood gown with a portrait neckline for Glam Pam.  But the pink marabou came out so well I stuck with that. It is just soooooo over the top I was really pleased with it.

Thank you!

You know....I REALLY wish I would have smiled or at least looked a bit more spunky in my picture!!  You can tell I took the picture late last night and was completely OVER being dressed in work clothes on a Sunday night!

I do have that doll like blank stare so I guess that is a plus in this case!
