I can tell you I had fun assembling some "twelves". Everything you are about to see was selected from my studio.
Twelve tools that I use frequently:
squeegees, stamps, rubber scraper, paintbrushes, exacto knife, dental syringe,
bamboo pen, palette knife, toothbrush.
Twelve metal "milagros" for embellishment
Twelve spools of thread (Superior), and baby you know
I have more where this came from!
Twelve pieces of gorgeous thai silk!
insert the last remark here....
Twelve well or partially-filled sketchbooks
Twelve presser feet.
Twelve packets of Topstitch needles.
Hey! You never know when you will run out...
Twelve pieces of art.
Top row-encaustic on board,
2nd row encaustic on board or paper,
3rd row, oil paintings (I painted the center one, only)
bottom: artist "houses" book, a workshop sample, joined together with window screen and supported by inverted Sakura pens.
Twelve pieces of hand-dyed, screen-printed (by me) silk
Twelve pieces of hand dyed and printed cotton (by me)
Twelve things that inspire me on my sofa side table.
See Melly's beautiful artwork behind the shell?!
Twelve toys that I love: the top row has 2 finger puppets I got in Amsterdam and a hand-carved headless animal that was made by my daughter.
More finger puppets I found in Amster are on the bottom right.
I love wind-up toys, did I ever tell you that? So here are a couple of those.
I love Meerkats, parakeets, anteaters, and armadillos, too. I love toys so much. I hope I never grow up.
