I survived!   Actually it was kinda fun, there were lots of different styles of art there, and it was always a dream of mine to see some of my work hanging on a gallery wall, and there it was.  It was awesome!   Plus hubby took me out for some vegetarian sushi afterwards Smiley  can't beat a spur of the moment date night!  Thank you everyone for the advice!  Couldn't have made it without it!

  This  is the second painting that won.  It was a Freethinkers art contest and they requested paintings based on Freethinkers, atheism, feminism, science, and zoology.  I won the atheism and feminism categories.

Thanks for the advice!   My sister was the one that encouraged me to enter, so on top of all that, I'll be holding her hand most the night lol.  I let her know that doing this was for me, like going grocery shopping naked lol.  Thank you again for all the great advice!

(Above painting is one of the pieces)
So I won first place for two paintings in an art contest, which also includes having my paintings hang in a gallery for a month and really, I'm freaking out.  I've always just painted for myself, maybe given a piece of two to family or friends, but now it's all out there in the public for everyone to see! And long story short, I really don't feel like an artist or all that  great at painting!  Ack!  
The art show is on Friday and I have no idea what to wear or to expect.  I know my fellow Craftsters are fantastic at advice and I could really use some!  Thanks in advance if you have any for me!

So being a kid growing up in the 80's and 90's, I loved Hocus Pocus. So needed a book of my own!  Not exactly like the movie, got to have one of my own of course, but inspired by it and a post from Pinterest. 

It started as a fake book of Oliver Twist, the kind that looks like a book but you open it and it's a box.  I made the eyes out of flat marbles and magazine eyes.  Then I glued them to the book, I crumpled up paper and twisted it and rubbed it until it was nice and soft and then glued it all over the book and a layer of paint a bit of sanding and viola!  I love it. Smiley

Very adorable!  And I love that her wings are "recycled".  We get these leaves here that helicopter down from the trees all the time and I always think they would make great fairy wings.  Cicada wings though, that's even cooler Smiley

Spectacular!  Love it all, and the pic of them fighting with the noodles made me lol.  Great work!

Yep, the cupcake was my first.  Thinking somewhere around 6 or 7 I should be making them look perfect lol.  My little girl doesn't mind though if they are a bit off, she loves them wonky and all Smiley  Paint's sneaky, making me drop a brush full of it on purpose lol.  The noses on these are throwing me off, not sure if I'm not putting the pattern together right or if I should just hack at it a bit with some scissors until I like it and then sew it lol.  How we get better though!
