As I sit here under my FAVORITE Hat (and for those that know me...know I LOVE my Hats!) ... I was thinking and wondering to myself .. How does one go about making a 'second' blog?? I pondered and pondered on this subject till smoke rose out of the top of the cone ... then thought...Jodi, stop being such a ninny and ask your friends in BLOGLAND... they can't laugh at you forever...eventually they will have to return to housework and art, their children and husbands....the laughter will eventually die out!
My question about the whole thing (and the part that hurts my gray matter the most when pondering this subject) is how can I have two blogs with the same gmail address? Will One cancel out the other (stop laughing, it's hard to stop) For some reason it is very hard for me to wrap my brain around this whole concept... Normally I am a jump in with both feet kinda gal...but I also am a 'button pusher' without checking first...which means I run the serious risk of losing what I have now...GULP! Or is this just Outer Limits thinking?
The purpose for all of these Dufus Inspired Questions is that I want to start an alter ego blog...my other side as it were...nothing like taking a casual stroll on a tight wire... minus the net !!
So if someone...anyone out there that hears my sniveling sobs for help.... could offer suggestions that my ' smokin grayness' would understand...I would be forever grateful ...and I could take off my 'hat' before my head forms this shape...
Thanks a Mil ...or a Tril in this days economy!

As you can see.... Richard has been a busy boy... he had a slight set back when he decided to 'carve' the wings instead of sculpting them...I am happy he went in that direction. It always amazes me (and I have been watching him do this for years now but never tire of seeing it) how he can take a Big old chunk of wood and whittle away at it to form a beautiful set of thin wooden wings... he uses the big chunk so that he can get the 'curve' to the wings. I love these wings. He still has a bit more to do on them but I keep reminding him that this is a 'statue' ...NOT a real owl... and that it has to look like a statue ...so details can be played down a tad... He is starting the Dragon sculpt around the lectern ...should be finished with that today...then that all gets baked again as it sits in the photo...and then I get to paint and gold antique it ...I LOVE that part. He has also started on the smaller dragon heads at the bottom of the lectern crystal base...and the feet with claws. I will then paint that...and we both work on the candles..he makes them...and I get to make them 'drip'!! I love the detailed stuff...
Hey check out the new 'Blue Ball' that the owl sits on...that is the one I told you about that replaced the old one... this one is so cool with the swirls...
Oh and I should mention the owl body is in clay.
So that's about it for now... we need to finish this up by Thursday as Friday we are heading to Vegas for our Grand-daughters 9th Birthday....we are SOOOOO excited!

Isn't it amazing how one photo can prompt all of this silliness!!!!
OK...I am back to work on Dumbledore... the weekend interrupted progress...but alas, we are onto another fresh week filled with promise of completion.
Have a Marvelous Monday
