Finally finished




I have been working on a project for about a week now. I had a paper mache dress form and decided to cover her in silver and rhinestone. I am a girl who loves bling. There can never be too much!
I went and picked up 10 dress forms and gave them out for others to decorate in their styles. If the police had stopped me, I could have been charged with bringing bodies in bags across state lines.
We will be auctioning them on March 27 at our charity event, Camp Crop. All proceeds from the day will donated to the Nation Lupus Foundation of America. These donations are made to honor Jarrell Bledsoe, my brother in law. He lost his battle to lupus Oct. 17, 2007.
This project was hard because I would never have believed how much jewelry it would take to cover it. Thank goodness for ebay and shopgoodwill.com. I made many purchases to cover her assets.
