WORKTABLE WEDNESDAY



Wow, already? It's already What's On My Worktable Wednesday again??? Oh boy.

Before I get started on that, I wanted to mention that I figured out how to keep my playlist from automatically starting as soon as anyone accesses this page. I know not everyone cares to hear it, and that some people will be listening to their own music when they come to my page and probably won't want mine interfering. So now IF you want to listen to what I'm listening to, all you have to do is click on the arrow to start, and then you can just let it play as I've got it listed, or click on any individual song to hear that one instead.

OK, so what's on my worktable this morning is a custom order. A very nice lady ordered a pin with a pair of German Shorthaired Pointers for her mom's birthday. So this morning I am finishing up the pin. The sculpting of the doggies themselves was a breeze, it's determining how to join them together without the pin being huge, or the dogs getting distorted that gave me a bit of a hassle. The customer left it up to me to decide the style of the pin.

Since the dogs are so dark, a rich liver brown, I thought a really pale soft pink pearl would look really lovely as the background. I really didn't want a lot of the background to even show, so the dogs themselves are the focal point of the pin.

So here's what I ended up with:



I'm very pleased with the finished product. :o) I have to thank my 16 yr. old web wiz daughter Caitlin for her photo editing on this pic.

So I still haven't finished the poor patiently waiting little sheepdog figurine unfortunately. Custom orders have to come first. But soon!

The pin is lovely. I'm sure the birthday lady will be thrilled.
Ginny, girl you have just become a blogging maniac here! Good job! I like the Worktable Wed. I think I may have to steal that idea.
One thing you need to get is feedburner (it's free) email subscription service so we can sign up & be notified when you have a new blog post. Here's the link to get it: http://www.feedblitz.com/f/?AddBloggerWidget

Thanks Cathy!

Yeah I've gone a little nuts with the blogging lately haven't I? LOL From nothing for a month or more, to posts every couple of days. I do enjoy writing though so, so far, it's been fun.

I thought the Worktable Wed. would help motivate me to work consistenly and FINISH things I have laying around. I'm a good one for starting things and then not finishing them. So now this gives me some incentive.

I thought the Motivational Mondays could help me as much as anyone reading what I post. I think we all can use all the motivation, positivity, etc. we can get!

Thanks for the info on the Feedburner email program. I've added it to my blog. I still have so much to learn about blogging, self promotion, etc.!
