Well, I have to say that if I am EVER feeliong down I am just going to come here.  You have all made me feel so wonderful right now.

He took me about 2 hours to airbrush.  The felted toes and fingers took the longest amount of time.  I wacthed "Phantom of the Opera" (for the umpfhteen time) and was still not done felting and that movie is over two hours.

I have been airbrushing for 22 years.  I went to a specailized art school straight out of high school in 1983m, where I learned airbrushing.

Penny, I have not made a leopard yet but he is coming up.  I want to make a male lion next.  A leopard would be a blast to airbrush.

Winney, My mom always tells me that...."when you love what you do you never work a day in your life."  Aren't we all lucky to have such a fun "job"?

I want to enter him into the upcoming competitions...fingers crossed.

bear_ermm TWO hours? not twenty?  bear_ermm And whilst watching Phantom of the Opera?

Bye the way, I finally got to watch my DVD. I loved it!! The whole production is scrumptious. The tenor is not as incredibly great as Colm Wilkinson (highly recommended), but he's certainly better looking!

I've gotta take your course, Judi!   :hug: Plotting and scheming, here . . .

bear_thumb Right on, Kim!  :hug:

Of course it should win. But if not, maybe we could stage a TB&F eat-in, and invite the media! I'd take mine with Hollandaise, I think. Maybe Bearnaise.

Hi Judi, I'm using mum's log-in because I want to tell you how fantastic your tiger is. I'd love to be able to make something like that myself but having precisely zero talent with a needle that's not likely to happen any time soon. Well done!  :thumbsup:

No pressure or anything Judi!!!! You had better your tiger now!  I think I could eat just about anything if it was covered in hollandaise sauce... I LOVE that stuff!  I seriously doubt we are going to have to do it Eileen, but I'm game if necessary!   

UUUGGGG.... I said to myself that I was going to scale back a bit on the TT until I get some work done, but I just keep popping on.... I need a little device that shocks me or something everytime I try to go to TT!!!! Okay, really, now, I''m going back to work!
