My mother-in-law just returned from a trip to Italy and look what she brought me from Venice!
A fox mask made in the traditional style--paper mache and hand painted--by this artisan.
I have a big event this weekend that I've been getting ready for this week. Here are some "work in progress" shots for you--all from today! Not even including the Halloween costume I've been working on in between these other fun things. I hope to share more photos and details with you all later.
A final note for this lovely Thursday afternoon--we are having a lot of trouble with our comment box and spam filters. If a filter is on, no comments get through. Without the filter, the site gets about 100 spams a day! If any of you have some corrective action to recommend to remedy the problem, I'd gladly welcome it. In the meantime, if you leave a comment, it may take longer than usual to appear on the site.
Happy crafting, sewing and cooking everyone! ~ Erin
