Cow Bizness

I have had it with the foam is the cow.

The before was really awesome...but I had to take matters into my own hands.....

See those "handles"? Uh, there are too many....this cowgirl couldn't do sir. I had to perform a radial mastecomy..... I felt much better.

And take a look at that hip...the black markings have a special code.

If you know what year the "saints came marching in" will get it.

Now onto the "heads".

When in "ROME"

Okay, yeah so this was supposed to be the place for fun and frippery, wonderful and whimsical, creative and crafty-you get my drift. So I was recently called to be on the "float committee". For those of you in the will know what THAT means. For others it will seem pretty uh, strange. I WISH rootbeer and ice-cream were involved

SO, my moments of the above fun and frippery...etc. have been shelved for now. I am a "foam artist" and that is really stretching it. Basically it means that I get a call from"Dave" and I go over and pick up my assignment. It involves big blocks of styrofoam and plywood glued together in shapes and that's where I come in.Then I come home and shave with my electric knife and smooth and carve and swear a bit...
I went to the 3 dollar fabric store and found this velvety fabric for uh,,,,3 dollars a yard. And the snipping and hotgluing began...and MANY hours later...there they are...all ready for their infamous ride down STATE STREET....

I am afraid that they look at bit like they have been drinking "moonshine" or something...but there is no time for sobering up... I am carving the cow tomorrow!
