 a gift ! Just let me know the giftee's email address and if you would like me to include a special note in the welcome email at purchase! 
 Look at these beauties !
Vintage tape measure from 1950s that I added crimp end hooks to . I made them for wrap assemblage bracelets , but they are perfect for book marks as well ! (teacher's gifts oh my ).

 These are encaustic angels I have cast from my original Charlotte dolls.
I have tinted the bees wax for a prim style and added vintage antique cutter quilt wings 
with "Joy" hand stitched on the wing. 

 Then I got so tickled with them , I cast a bunch of smaller (2 /14" ) ones
for you to create with as well!

Only 4 of these !
original ,one of a kind encaustic painting 

 some vintage dollies!

Ok , why is the sale just for today.
Well, it is Cyber Monday but, 
The real reason is 
that I have to get all holiday orders in the post

working ballerina
dance in the ABC TV taping of the Disney World Christmas Parade !
I may have told you in the summer that she auditioned and got in . 
It airs Christmas morning on ABC , but guess what its not taped live, 
shhhhh don't tell that I let that slip. :)
Sorry for the blur, 
my photo skills do not transfer into moving objects

or convo me on Etsy.

BLack Friday ARe you Tired Yet?

Happy Black Friday everyone ! 
Now that you are back in your toasty warm abodes after your all night excursions ,in your
nice fluffy slippers to soothe those aching  feet.
Is this some sort of holiday now? No, its a mission !
Oh well, I am just home working away, as I am afraid  and terrified of 
being stuck in all of that traffic.
 I just don't want anything that badly to brave that !
Just like every year ,I enjoy hearing about the heroic ventures of everyone who braved the shopping trenches, and their plunder, but glad I didn't do it  (home body :)

I  have received
quite a few emails about the pricing for the 
"Give Thanks , and Give Back Holiday Sale "
in conjunction with the news letter subscriber sale .

So hear is the deal . 
If you are a newsletter subscriber, you get 15% off your total purchase of 
anything in the shop. 
++You also still get the 50% off your second workshop.
This offer is good until Tuesday Dec. 2. 

The good thing for you,
is that I DO NOT do the 
 "Bath and Body Works" ,
etc etc tricky coupon pricing !!!!
I am pretty straight forward :)
Example :
 If you are a newsletter subscriber (sign up is on the lefthand side bar of blog)

Your gonna get  your second workshop for 65% OFF!

(15% newsletter + 50% off second workshop)
Thats Right !

now is definitely a great time !

I have also found it is A LOT  easier if you just convo or email me , and I create a custom listing for the workshops of your choice + whatever else you may in Etsy shop, or send a Pay pal invoice from this site ,so I can do the discounts for you with out you having to put out any extra $$ and wait for me to refund it .

Don't forget to sign up for the solder basket , or free workshop giveaway in the previous post !!!
Blessings to you , and safe travels this holiday season,

HUGE End of the Year Give Thanks, and Give Back SALE , and Giveaway!

Birds of a Feather , Solder Together!

  Begins tomorrow!

I am so excited Birds of a Feather , Solder Together ! Online workshop begins tomorrow.
I hope everyone is as excited as I am to begin!
You can still join us here:

I am so thankful for everyone who joins me in the workshops , and the blog , and now Youtube channel ! (even though it is just getting started). 
I want to end the year giving back by doing a couple of things.
First off, 
for the first time ever, 
 now through the end of cyber Monday....

If you buy one workshop, 

 get another workshop  for 1/2 off!

This will include the 2 TuTs as well in my Etsy Store! 
So for instance you can get Solder and Spice , and then get 
Either of the tutorials in the Etsy shop , or the "How to Create Beautiful Broken China Jewelry " for 
Half the price! 
Or , you can get "Fly" and get "Encaustic Metal Journal Journey" for HALF OFF!
Or you can get one tutorial , and get the other half off. 
You get the idea. 
If you have been wanting to dive in to some fun workshops 
THIS is the perfect time!
You also have me via email help , as long as you like. 
Everything we make in the workshops make awesome Christmas Gifts,
 and if you don't have time to work on them before, you will have something to play with in your fuzzy slippers in January :)
This is the first time I have ever offered a sale like this! 
And ,the only sale I will be having before the end of 2014. 

How It Works

Unfortunately , There is not a coupon formula for this, 
so if you purchase 2 workshops , 
I will send a refund within 2 hours (usually a few minutes unless I am driving or sleeping :)
via pay pal, or Etsy payment. 
If you send me an email or Etsy convo , I will make a Custom listing for you with the discount included for the workshops you want, or send you a Pay Pal invoice with the discount included so you don't have to wait around at all to receive a refund for the half off. 

Sound good?

The sale will include the 

Encaustic Tribal Mask Assemblages Workshop
This workshop which was originally part of the Encaustic Art To Wear workshop, 
has been widely requested to be offered as a separate smaller workshop.
So here it is!

This workshop will begin on Jan 20,

Registration is open now here:

I have had many requests for a few different projects of Encaustic art to wear to be offered separately. This was the most widely requested , so it is up first!

How Else would I like to give thanks?

With a Giveaway or 2 of course! 

I haven't had a giveaway in what seems like ages , so it is long overdue!
The Holiday Giveaway is.....are you ready?
This years Holiday Giveaway is your choice of ...

 A Studio Pro 100 solder  iron , 


wheeled glass nippers,

Wax on Wednesdays! Holiday Edition Video !!

As makers of fun things sometimes our Holidays get a little confusing.
For instance I was hand painting these little beauties on Halloween. 
I was doing a large batch all last week , but it especially tickled my funny bone 
on Halloween morning. 

But, I had had a plan for a while to share these with you for ....

"Wax on Wednesdays!" Holiday Edition Video  !!!


 I love these little bottle brush trees, and also collecting the old 
plastic ornaments, and Penny dolls. 
Their little cute faces just get to me, and they all remind me of the old Christmas
songs my parents played over  and over during the holidays.
 Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra , Perry Como, Andy Williams,
Nat King Cole, and one of my Mother's Favorites Johnny Mathis. 
You know the gang. 

 In this weeks Wax on Wednesdays, I have cast the old dolls in plaster,
and then used the castings to create these little holiday ornaments .
Materials I used:
little masonite boards 
Oil Pastels to paint the figures
Glitter dust 
vintage glass garland balls for trees 
encaustic medium
titanium white encaustic stick R F
bottle brush trees
plaster cast figures
mini eye hooks
pretty ribbons for hanging

I truly hope you enjoy this Holiday edition of 
"Wax on Wednesdays" 
I had wanted to put some of these songs onto the video, but that would 
be a big no no with copyright on youtube. 
So, we are stuck with 
the "Jingle Punks" , but that just makes it easier to sing along kareoke style :)))

I will have the ornaments I made for you here  in the video, signed,dated,  and  up for 
grabs in my Primology Etsy Store at exactly 8pm tonight Eastern Time
Follow Link 

 Sometimes if you receive the blog post via email, the Youtube video does not show up.
Use this link to go directly to the You tube video so that you can see this weeks Wax on Wednesdays! Holiday edition !!

Hope you are enjoying the beginnings of this holiday season,
Happy Creating!
