You can tell I am working hard because the place is a total mess!! My mom was an art teacher, and she firmly believed that an art room shouldn't be too neat, because making a mess is part of being creative. I think she would be proud of this mess and of the stuff I'm creating. Miss her everyday. artmess creativemess momknowsbest cancersucks whoisgoingtocleanupthismess maskmagic mistressofthemaze craneoldschool

I found my can of Sulky KK2000 when we were packing. I hope they still make it, because this can is from back when I did silk painting, circa 2006! It's a great temporary adhesive that is non-toxic. It makes life so much easier when you are, for instance, using a craft knife to cut a detailed pattern. Spray the paper, stick it to the mat. Then you can unstick the pattern, and stick it to your fabric. Voila! patternmaking maskmagic sulkykk2000 mistressofthemaze minoangenius

Not getting any art made just now-- too busy navigating furniture up the Stairs-of-Death at my new house in Philly. I love this house, built in 1792, and all its quirks, but I am contemplating a lifestyle based around inflatable furniture.

Making a Minoan Genius, which was likely a transformation of the Egyptian Hippo Goddess Tawaret. I'm making a pair of them, so two Genii, not two Geniuses! The ancients were kind of masters of the animal mash-up: Look at this crazy donkey-headed, frog-fingered, crocodile/bubble-backed thing! mistressofthemaze tawaret minoangenius minoan myths ancientaegean masks maskmagic fossshape

More pics from the WOW: World of Wearable Art exhibit. Such amazing work! That's a piece by @bl00mfelt in the lower R corner, awesome to get to see her work in person! I have never been to a museum exhibit where the patrons were all so excited by what they saw. People of all ages came alive, energized by these pieces. worldofwearableart wow fiberart costume fantasyworld

Laying out fiber for new work after a LONG stretch of inaction. When you wet felt, working hard means getting your hands clean, not getting your hands dirty! (Get it? Because we use soap for felting? Har har....) wetfelting fiberart wearableart surfacedesign softart chartreuse
