Flying paint and lacking mojo.

Hello friends.
You probably thought I was lost in actually I am planted on my chair in the kitchen studio trying to get my mojo going but it is really lagging lately. 
Here are some things I have ready for my shows.
This is a wood salad bowl. painted by me of course, this is a Cyndi Combs design. A wonderful designer and painter and very easy and quick patterns to do which I like this time of year.

 This is for the Retirement home. I help my MIL and her friend serve lunch once a week and I asked them if they would like me to do a little prize thing after Thanksgiving. We didn't serve a meal this past week because here in Canada we celebrate it earlier in the US. Our Thanksgiving was earlier this year for some reason. So this will be draw a name kind of thing in the next few weeks as peeps will be starting to decorate for Christmas. this is a Monika Brint design which I added music paper wings just for something different.
I think I will add some Stickles to the Joy, it needs a bit of bling.

Here are some paint stick ornaments, you can find the tutorial here at Today's Fabulous Finds.
This idea I got from Pinterest but I did my faces a little different. Cover a styrofoam ball with air dry clay the marshmallow type, oh and I pushed a wire loop hanger through first then cover. Let dry. I then added white acrylic paint so I could paint the facial features on there. Added air dry clay noses and add ribbon to hang. These were so much fun, easy and the only hard part is waiting for the clay to dry. I hope I sell a few of these, if not, I will hang them on my tree.
And last but not least is the Tyendinaga Library 12 weeks of Christmas project I will be doing in a couple of weeks. This is a wood 1/4 inch plywood stocking cut out by me. Painted and distressed and added some scrappiness to it and I even rusted the jingle bells.
Well that is it. I had started this post earlier today but was cut short due to many phone calls and trying to find out more about my Dad's condition. 
Take care all and I will return in about a week.
