Land of Odds.....


Land of Odds posted pictures of the 6 semi finalist for the Earthen Mother Challenge. I can NOW FINALLY let you see what has been possessing me since January. I'm still waiting to hear back from Warren if I can post more pictures that I have either here or on my website I saw the post for this link from Ralonda over at Beaded Art Doll. What a tough group of competitors, but I'm just thrilled to be a part as Land of Odds does a magnificent job of promoting all the finalist. After finishing Rachel, I felt really down as I was working on her for months & months & then she was gone. I haven't picked out a new big project to work on so maybe that is why I'm so empty inside. I really had a fun time making all the component pieces for this. I used several books on beaded flowers, and the bugs and lizards came from Jill Oxton magazines.

Went back to work last night. My coworker called in sick...lovely! I was so tired as it is tough getting back into the groove of night shift, that I felt like a zombie. Also, they hadn't hired anyone for our open position. Here people are begging for jobs, and we are getting no applications for lab workers. Must mean something...means they should raise the salaries. We use to make what nurses did when I first started, but their salaries have far surpassed Med Tech, so my field is suffering a huge shortage of staff. I'm just hoping to survive until management figures out to attract & retain staff you've got to pay them well. Hey maybe by next Spring we'll have a full staff...cough, cough, cough. Doubt it.

Wow...these are ALL so well done, but I have to admit yours intrigues me the most - along with the tree (sorry, forget the artist's name). I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you!!

I can honestly say your piece is my favorite. I am pulling for you, even though you have to admire each and every entry.
