Apparently I had become sleepy while sketching & I had forgot to turn off the television (happens alot!).
Carrying on with the original thought - The words I heard through my sleep some hours later were from a religious program on some "off channel" .... I have no idea how the TV was tuned to that space...
Why must we create and inspire others to create? Because when we are creating we have become our own evangelistic force to shine a light over doubt which is hiding in all the dark corners in our minds. We own the responsibility to shine that light in order to move forward so we do not lose our way on the path to overcome all that ails us. This becomes the answer to the question, "why now?"

I have two beautiful manikins - who wear my creations well... I am so grateful for their statuesque beauty and to have them just for the fun of giant barbie dolls in house. Here my Platinum Blond is wearing my Steam Punk Wedding Gown
(which includes the hand painted Hat with Veil, Hand beaded Choker Necklace, Hand Stitched Edwardian style Corset which is painted and beaded - Painted and beaded three tier petty coat, and the hand painted and beaded dress with crystal and pearl caplets at the shoulders.)Oh and I forgot to mention the FEATHERS.... I love feathers the steam punk outfit is laded with white ostrich and turkey feathers... you can see them here at the top and bottom of the corset...but are also included on the Coachmen's Hat. Also on the hat you'll see antique french lace which is bead with pearls and Swarovski Crystals.... along with three hand rolled satin roses.
Smokin Shambhala is the second outfit in 2011, just completed for a trade show debut in Milwaukee, WI. She is wearing a hand painted gamblers hat, also sporting Turkey Feathers in the form of brown and black feather floral fascinators. There is again beaded and sequined french lace and hand knotted modern macrame(Shambhala) as the hand band.... and all through out the outfit.
The greatest challenge was painting the Liquid Black Leggins... it was an interesting fabric to work with. My favorite portion of the Shambhala outfit was creating the Tulle and feather Bustle.
Modern Macrame, or Shambhala as it s know in the Eastern Cultures, is an incredible zen craft. Meaning that it is relaxing to do and you end up with such beautiful works of art that you can wear.
Here you see my Steam Punk Shambhala (design: "Frozen in Time")
But the design possibilities are limited only by your imagination!

These images are just things that seemed beautiful to me. Someone else might not agree...but it is just relaxing to put a bit of charcoal to a page with nothing in particular in mind as the outcome.
I love BIG eyes...in real life and in art!

A progress report on the craft and hobby Tradeshow effort for the LA 2011 Jan 28th show. As some of you know Viva Decor decided to create a themed booth this year, mastered after the Song by Billy idol, White Wedding.
With that in mind we have been working on the Rock wedding ...Steampunk theme corset and dress ...since November... first we began with the corset(Edwardian style).
Hundereds of hours later and lots of fabric paint, beads, crystals feathers and Tulle and we have a dress in progress:
As the dress began to emerge, the feeling of accomplishment moved from fun to truly excited... we added the Crystal Coachmens Hat. . . .
Now with only 22 days to go we are in the home stretch!...so if your in LA on Jan 28th ...come to the convention center for the CHA and visit Bajidoo in the Viva Decor Booth to see the Bajidoo SteamPunk Wedding Gown for yourself:
