Halloween swap goodies


Hellooo all!

Just thought I'd stop in and let you all see the goodies I got this year from my good friend Lynn Stevens of "Trash to Treasure art."  Lynn and I have been swapping goodies on and off for almost 7 years now and I have to tell you..........she's amazingly generous!  Look at all this Halloween fun!

2 charms she made plus various goodies to create with.

Look at this charming tag

Isn't this the cutest little shrine?

She made me three lovely pieces to hang on my wall, too.

I don't know about you all, but I surely do treasure the many friends I've made through blogging and now through FaceBook, which is where I'm spending most of my time right now.

I wish you all the happiest of Halloweens, and may you all revel in the day when little kiddies wearing costumes come begging for candy.

Hugs,
Meri

Too Much going on, but boy it's exciting!



July is the last time I posted...........wow, have I been busy.  As a lot of you already know, I became a grandma for the first time on September 6th and have been in love ever since.  For those of you who don't follow me on FaceBook or Instagram (which is where I've been spending most of my time lately) here are some pictures of my brand new grandson........Maxwell Fox Jones:

hugs and kisses today.

I also got to change his diaper so that his
mommy knows I remember how.
Livin' the good life
I've also been a very busy artist with a lot going on and hopefully more to come.  My name was turned in at the recent "Art Unraveled" event here in August, as a possible teacher for next year.  I had two weeks to come up with an idea for a class, create the projects, write about it and write up a class lesson.  These are the dolls I came up with and now I'm just waiting to hear if I've been selected.

This is my steampunk version
This is my two-sided, native Indian
doll with Hopi Indian on one side.
and Navajo Indian on the other side.
This is my Mermaid doll
I've also been very busy creating sculpts for Comi-Con next May, as it seems that I shall be vending there in one way or another.  I'll either have my own booth, or be sharing one with another vendor who has graciously offered space to me.  I don't have any completed images of the work in process right now, but they will be coming soon.

I still plan to switch everything over to my own website, but that's kind of taken a back seat as I'm creating daily and kind of in a mad rush to get my sculpts done.  They are very labor intensive, but once you see them, you'll understand why it's taken me so long.

I'll try to be back soon, but thanks for stopping by.  Don't forget, I post every week on FaceBook, so if you're looking for what I'm up to...........check me out there.

Hugs,
Meri

A bit of an update



Hello lovely bloggers,

I know, I know, you're feeling abandoned by me, and I'm sorry.  Things are changing for me, and unfortunately not in a way that I have control of.  It's going to be a slowed down version of "downsizing" as I cannot do everything myself.  Many glorious plans were made, with the best intentions, but when our summer heat hits, nobody wants to do anything.  I can't blame them, as the heat bothers me most of all, but it's frustrating.  I have many exciting things to look forward to, but all the obstacles in the way are leaving me feeling caught in life's web.  My mind works at a super human pace, but my body just sits back and laughs at me.........mocking me for getting older and having been in poor shape for the past 30 years due to medical crap.  I tell ya, if they ever come up with transplanting my brain into either a young healthy, able body or yes, even an avatar, I'll be one heck of a force to deal with.

Since we live in the real world, not fantasy, I have to take things at an extremely slow pace.  Our summer monsoons are lovely to behold in their fury and the cleansing rain they bring, but with the pain issues I have I just get really mad if I'm hurting all day and it doesn't rain at our house.  Okay, enough babbling.

Some of the changes coming are that I will be closing down my blog.  I will be using my website address of "imagimeri.com" as my new connection site.  When I get it properly up and running I will send out notification via an invitation and a giveaway.  My website will be everything; my shop, my blog, updates, schedule of events and happenings, etc.  I am currently strictly on Facebook and Instagram, and you can find me there daily.  I also belong to a few Facebook groups that some of you might be interested in.

I'm still caring on and off for my mom who is doing fine at the moment.  That changes from month to month.  I have some exciting plans for things next year and will be sharing tidbits on Facebook and then on my website when it's up and running.

I don't know how many more posts I'll get in here before the switch, so if you're interested in keeping up on what's happening at chez ImagiMeri's then follow me on facebook and/or instagram.

I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your company these past 7 years.  Things always change for the better, so I hope this is so for my future, which right now is so ?????????  Lot's of love and hugs, and if you decide to follow me on either Facebook or Instagram, or both, you will definitely hear from me about the final change and opening of my website.

Big Hugs,
Meri
