So a month ago I got to work with some amazing, creative and beautiful people on creating a mask for a makeup commercial. I got to go to the fitting, meet the model, poke at her face and make a custom mask for the shoot, this is the end result! I should have asked for that gloss too, it looks amazing.

Finished the second to last show of the season, almost wish I had more :) thank you to everyone who came out and supported the hard working artisans ! it's wonderful to see so many people, we're still not there yet, I can pretty much guarantee that walmart is more packed than any craft show but it's getting better every year, so thank YOU for getting it! Every purchase you make from a local artist or craftsperson is voting with your dollar, encouraging the arts and inspiring new artists, showing them that it IS possible to do what you love. Every dollar vote is giving us access to take our art to another level, every dollar vote buys classes and supplies and allows us to network with other creators. and for that dollar vote? you get a beatiful piece, a story, and to meet the artist directly. You get to give our creations as gifts to the people you love, but it's not just a "hey this was on sale at futureshop so here you go" you get to describe the scene, talk about the artist, express the inspiration behind the piece, you get to tell a story about the gift, and that's pretty amazing.

Just a quick note to let you all know that we'll have a teeny little kiosk at the Beaconsfield train station this Thursday, Dec 6th from 3:30 to 7:30 PM. It's a first for me and I may or may not do it again so if you find yourself in the area, stop by! 104, avenue Elm, Beaconsfield, Quebec

So I have this thing, see? I'm afraid to look at other people's masks because if asked, I want to be able to honestly say my ideas come from my head. Even if you don't conciously do it, isn't it possible you might accidentally be...inspired? also, I get upset if I see stuff that's SO BEYOND what I do, I have to sit back and remind myself, I've only been doing this for months, not years... I just had a big question about riveting...and I solved it while typing it out... now all I need is an anvil! (because riveting inside a beak sucks)
