Creativity/Productivity - Viper Girl and Fall Formal Flowers

With the big wedding now behind us, creativity and productivity were up in our house this week! I started a new hair ornament creative project and my son, Tony, finished his second book.  Not a bad week!

In my April 13th blog post, I talked about Tony's first ebook, Viper Girl vs. The Poltergeist Pirate Oppossum of Plundering Peril.  This week he published the second book in the Viper Girl series, Viper Girl's Killer Cake and Cookie Catastrophe.



The second book is published in both ebook and print format, and he also published the first book in the series in print format.  Tony tried some new things with the second Viper Girl book.  It's in full color and he used a different digital art style for the illustrations.  He's back in classes at Eastern Michigan University, but he is already at work on Viper Girl #3!  If you're interested in Viper Girl updates, you can check out (and maybe even become a fan of) the Viper Girl Facebook Page. :)

As for me, the floral comb that I created for Betsy to wear in her hair for the wedding created some stir around the hair salon and I've been asked to create some sample flower combs that might be of interest to girls preparing to attend Homecoming dances, or other Fall formals, for possible sale in the salon .  I hope to have a selection of floral combs in a variety of colors and styles, as well as providing a custom order option.  I plan to take some samples over to the salon in a few days, and we'll see where things go from there!  Here are some photos of the three combs I made this week:












They all utilize a combination of wire and fiber, which makes them easy to manipulate, bend, and pin into hair.  They also stay in the desired shape.

These are photos of the teal flower comb I'm currently finishing up.  The flower components are done.  I just need to sew them together, create the leaf (silver I think!), and wire them to the comb.
