Listing Gourds

I just brought a box of finished gourds into the house so I can finally get them listed on artfire or Etsy. Since my computer is in the shop I'll have to take new photos of everything and put them on my boyfriend's hard drive and then onto my shop sites.

Gourd Skully Mask

I had prepared this gourd for painting ages ago and just happened to see it sitting in a box today and I already had the paints out so I started painting it for Day of the Dead. Next I want to put an eyepatch over the other eye, where the natural markings already resemble a scarred eye socket.

Woodburning on Gourds

Once again I'm itching to do some gourd pyrography. I need to clean off my drawing table because I need a flat and secure surface for the wood burning tools. Can't have things sliding off when they are hot on the end. If you ever do woodburning you always have to be mindful of where the hot tips are. My burner has 2 tips that are hot at the same time. And I have cats so I always have to keep an eye on them too. If you have children underfoot be especially careful as they often grab without thinking.

Want to join too? Go to the code 'legendofping' and you could have the luxury of posting to all your blogs in one fell swoop like I do. Way more efficient than doing it one by one.
I'm not sure what 'ping my default' means but I guess I'll find out when I hit send.

The week sure went by quick. I had a lot more planned but didn't have the energy to do it. My hands are still sore from woodcarving, and so I've had to lay off the knitting and crocheting. I'm looking forward to the weekend. My daughter may visit. We'll see.
