The Creative Blog Hop #8

Welcome to week 8

Calling creative people from all areas.  Do you paint?  Are you an artist? Do you Sculpt?  Do you Quilt?  Sew? Floral Arrangements?  Pretty Finishing Touches like table scapes? A certain way that you decorate? Refinish furniture? Re-purpose items in a creative way?  

Whatever you talent may be please share so we all can see!

This link below is of a recently made friend with so much talent.  I am so impressed with her talent. I sculpt in the same way she does but in no way do I have the creative ability to create as she does.
Click link below to see her sculpt, then please return and add your creative link

She and her husband are doll maker/creaters.  Jodi and her husband Richard.
I add a little info about Jodi and Richard:
 My husband Richard and I are Professional Full Time Artists/Sculptors of Art Dolls and Miniatures... since 1977. Love and Humor have kept us working side by side and Happy for the last 37 + years. We live in the Arizona Desert with our Puppy Tess. We love our kayaks and our Tipi.
My Father was a Big Band Musician playing with everyone from Benny Goodman , Artie Shaw to both Dorseys. He lead the Harry James Orchestra for 9 years. Had a record contract with Capital Records...also did the Time Life Series 'The Swing Era'.. My Mom was a Rosie Rivitor, sang at the Hollywood Canteen during the war, was an under study at Warner Brother Studios in the early 40's ... ...and then there is me...their kid...maker of Art Dolls!!! ??? LOL

It seems that she comes from a very talented family.  I found her videos while searching You Tube for sculpting videos.

Face Sculpting Series: Part One

I do not like to be in front of the camera so I lucked up and found someone that sculpts the way I do on You Tube. She has done the filming and I want to share it.  It is so easy and so rewarding to sculpt a face that looks human.  The fun part is that they are as individual as humans themselves.
Well I have to add this statement for sure:  After researching Jodi and her husband Richard Creager, I found that they are renowned  Art Doll Makers.  They have been doing it since 1977.  I did stumble upon great talent to share with you.
