Yeah!!! My Etsy store is finally open after 2 years! I am finally in business...below are a few things that are in my shop. I will be posting a lot more, plus I'm still working on Halloween! Please stop by and check it out! Thanks, blogger friends! Let me know what you think!

Blue bird friend

Paper clay sculpture that is currently available in my Etsy shop.

Gnome Sweet Gnome

Paper clay sculpture, that is currently available in my Etsy shop.

I love Robots

Paper clay sculpture, on top of painted box with glitter. Available in my Etsy shop...

Halloween cat pillow

This is one of many Halloween cat pillows I've made...I keep him out all year in my studio.

Senor Skelly

Got this cute little guy at Target a few years ago, when they had Day of the Dead type decorations...He is jointed and sits with his dangly legs on a shelf.

Up close with Dikkens

Cute little face!


Here is a cute little devi pixie, that a Flickr friend sent me..I LOVE him! ( She has sent several of us one) Anyhow, he came still in his original bag...with a tag that says Dikkens (that's his name) and he was made in 1968...I will always treasure this fun, truly vintage gift! ****check out my Flickr site for more Dikkens photos...we have formed a group around this guy...
As I look at all the things i make, I have one running theme...googly eyes and teeth...

Candy Container

I made this last year for a friend, as a hostess gift...he is more like a candy bowl, as he stood about 14" tall. I put candy in his head ( orange and black wrapped peanut butter taffy...my friends fave) I may try and make some more of these...it depends if I run out of time...

A little batty

I sculpted this guy last year...I was going to sell him, but I kinda like him, so I kept it...I like his little pig nose! I am going to be making more bats to put in my Etsy shop.

Halloween is coming!!!

Just love this vintage inspired Halloween card, done in letterpress....
Hi, everyone...it sure has been a while since I have posted anything...I guess I have too many things going, with Flickr,Etsy, Facebook, that I have been neglecting my Blog! Anyhow, Summer sure has flown by, but now Fall is approaching...yeah!!! This is my favorite time of the year, and I am busy making Halloween things...which I will post as I get them done...also stop by my Etsy shop and take a look. After 2 years, I finally have put something in it! Happy Labor Day weekend to all!

funky flowers

These are bigger buckets than the smaller treat cups...I still need to put handles on them and add a few more things, but I thought they were bright and fun for the summer, or any time!
As you can see, I am crafting and making things like crazy....the problem is, I start too many things, before I completely finish the previous one...I am very ADD when it comes to crafting...I guess once I get going I think of a million things, and want to do them all at once! It's not working....I have tons of almost finished projects, so I am trying to make it my goal to actually finish up a few things every week, so I can actually put these things in my Etsy store! When I finally do get them in my store, there will be ALOT!

patriotic elephant

I've painted several trays with a patriotic theme, this one of them, although it isn't quite finished, as I still need to add some glitter, rhinestones etc.

4th of July

Here's my 4th of July treat cups....I made about 24 of these recently...once i get into production mode, look out!

pink and blue

I've been on a treat cup making roll...I make them for all different holidays and occasions. I just did these pink and blue, for no particular reason....but I guess they'd be good for a baby shower.

Hey lady

Little ladybug, who likes to drink tea and brings her own cup...I'm still kinda workin on it...

I love Gnomes

Another 8X8 painting...i just like gnomes right now, and I don't know why...

sparkly elephant

I'v e been doing a bunch of 8X8 canvas paintings and then I collage on them...this is one of them...I added tons of sequins, rhinestones, glitter etc...

Bailey and Bella

I just made this for a friend of my Mom's, who recently got two new chihuahua puppies. After I made the one for my Mom, she thought her friend would like one as well, so here it is...the photo isn't that great, but you can get the idea...

Bad Taco

This a paperclay sculpture of my Mom's bad chihuahua, Taco. He looks very cute and sweet, but he bites everyone! Anyhow, she just LOVES him, so I made her this for Mother's Day...and I bought a bottle of OPI nail polish, that was called "My chihuahua bites" inside. When I saw the name on that nail polish, I couldn't believe it! Had to get it.

I love you

Had to finish off with a sock monkey...one of my silly doodles I drew and then did the color on the computer. 

Here's to you, Mom...

Did this several years ago...it's my softer, not so bright and crazy side.

Thank You, Mom

Out this year, for Mother's Day...this is one of the cards that plays music...it's available at Walmart.

Happy Mother's Day cute flowers

This was one of the Mother's Day cards I did, probably last year?

funky face

This is a quilt square that I made years ago, while at a workshop, when i still worked at Hallmark... I recently found it, and thought, I really need to do more sewing projects!


It's been a bit since i last posted something...I've been real busy doing yard work:( Anyhow...I have also been working on Mother's day projects, which I will hopefully finish in a few days, and will add to this blog. Happy Wednesday!

Just a "few" yoyos I've been making...I like to sew these while I watch TV...I find it mindless and therapeutic. I have a ton more than these. I use alot of them on many of the things I make.

sock monkey slippers

It's cold out today...and yesterday was so nice and warm...my feet are cold so I'm gonna put on my sock monkey slippers!

Why Am I SO cute?

The dogs were outback all day yesterday, while we were doing yard work. It was such a nice, warm day....and Keenan was just sitting on the back steps taking a break.

works in progress

Hi, I am posting examples of some of the Easter projects that I have been working on...this is my studio desk...messy and crowded, glitter everywhere, paint, you name it. I wanted to show my works in progress...

Works in progress

This is the desk in my studio...i am very messy, when I am working, as you can see. I have a lot of these small paintings that I am trying to finish up before Easter. ( I think I am running out of times...yikes!) Just wanted to show my work, as I am creating and finishing them...I will post a few of the finished pieces, when i am done.

Easter bunnies

Boy and girl bunnies. I'm still working on them...

Just sittin around

Bunny and chickie painting, just waiting to be finished. I have to paint patterns on all 4 sides and add all th extra elements, like glitter, rhinestones, fabric etc...

2 bunnies

Here's a few of the smaller paintings...they have been glittered, but I still need to add bits and pieces of fabric, rhinestones etc...anything to glitz it up a bit. I love sparkly shiny things!
