Wire Mannequins and More

11 inch dress forms
There is just something so appealing about these wire forms! They are nice and lightweight, yet very sturdy. I was reading last night about upcoming submission requests for Stampington Magazines such as Somerset Studio and Belle Armoire, and one or more of these could be used for any of them. They are easily altered and added to, and the possibilities are endless! I just stocked them in my store in the "Alter Me" section.

If you use any of the wire forms that you buy from me (or anything else for that matter) and credit PinkyLouLou when you get published (think positive!) I will send you a nice little thank you bag of goodies.

13 inch wire dresses
You know, I have been working so hard on my new store- photographing, listing, organizing, etc, that I haven't actually made anything in what feels like weeks... My challenge to myself is to get back to my happily messy table and create. I mentioned Somerset and the other mags because I bought a huge whiteboard yesterday and wrote down a bunch of calls for submissions to them and others, up there in big letters, to give me a starting point. I also haven't done ANY inchies yet, and that's a big thing right now.

OK, I have a plan, now I just need some sleep.... :) Happy Creating!

My New Site Is Up & Running!


Hurray! I opened my new store today, and I am really excited! I am also completely exhausted, and I am cross-eyed from staring at the computer for days on end... I did it all myself though, so I am happy.

I am offering my original designs, but I am also selling lots of supplies for altered art, mainly vintage, but new things, too. I have vintage and retro gumball charms, ephemera, vintage glass negatives (these are fabulous), German glass glitter (see pic on left), vintage playing cards and other vintage game pieces, and much more. I will be listing trims and vintage buttons this week, as well as ArtGirlz pewter charms.

These gorgeous porcelain beads and charms are handmade by Earthenwood Studio, and I use lots of them in my work. They are beautifully glazed and sturdy.

Please check it out and let me know what you think! PinkyLouLou.com

p.s. I promise to get to the tagging I received at least a week or 2 ago!
