Clearing desk...

... and found more magnet materials.  The gnomes are in miniature frames with canvas backing.  They are a bit larger than other creations but the magnet will hold them securely.

Then went back to using slide frames
 Had assortment of other materials to create these:

Snow is gone...

..and yesterday temps reached the mid-60's.  Taste of SPRING.  As the snow melted, caught photo of icicles on the deck.  I see a face there - or it could be the effect of cabin fever.

Did take time to update Deja vu Designs USA Facebook page to expand / organize the shop section.  All magnets, mixed media and photos (printed on metal and some framed in float frames).  Take a moment to view & like my page.

Let it snow...let it snow...

... ok, that's enough !  Predictions 1-2".  Actual 8".  Typical - I think news source just doesn't want to scare folks & don't give real numbers for this happens just about every time weather forecasts of snow here in North Carolina. 

So what better way to spend the day ?  Snow Angels.  Well, not the kind you actually have to lie down in the stuff, but small angel on my patio.

The gnomes are done..

... found a source for gnome buttons & went to work.  Gathered metal wings (colored with alcohol ink), the last two press-board wings, plastic slide frames (also colored with alcohol ink) and various papers for back ground.  Measure 2" square.
They are available for sale at $6.00 each - had to raise the price due to the cost of the buttons.

And the cold returns...

... has been an absolute roller-coaster weather wise.  Last week temps almost reached 70 degrees, a bit of flash flooding on Friday and today not getting above 35 degrees.  At least there is no snow....yet...

Been working on custom orders - still in process so no photos yet.

Did update my shop on facebook so you can see available magnets, altered heads and general & sundry stuff.  Planning on setting up section for greeting cards just being challenged on taking photos of them.

Yes, magnets again...

... but this was by special request.  My sister thought the gnome designs was cute so created this for her.  It uses a slide frame colored with alcohol inks, the gnome is a (or was a) button, and the wings are pressboard cut out colored with metallic felt tip pen.

Purchased a new desk (well, actually two) so have spent more time organizing and designating work space rather than creating (both of the desks are so unique - one has top that is neon green glass and the other has fold out section and drawers) .  But that has proven to be helpful in finding materials that I thought had been consumed already....So ... ready, set, GO CREATE !!!
