Some new stuff... and I got a sweet award

I am so honored to have received this award from the super sweet Deanna!!!

Isn't blogland wonderful! I have met some of the most creative, generous and kind people and my life has been enriched because of this!

Over the next few days I'd like to show to show some pics of stuff I have been working on...

"Pixie on the Moon"... Miniature (dollhouse scale) doll sculpted in paper clay and dressed in crepe and ribbon, sitting upon sculpted, glass glittered paper clay moon...
Pixie on the moon, close up... Her wings were copied from vintage butterfly imagery.

"Party Pooper Punkin".... Not so happy pappy sculpted in papier mache with paper bow tie and finished with acrylics, glass and mica glitter. Stands upon a box.

"Sly Smiley Pumpkin"... Mischievous fellow sculpted in papier mache with paper bow tie and finished with acrylics, glass and mica glitter. Stands upon a box

"Sweet Shabby Snow Girl"... Looks like she's ready to give you a hug! Sculpted in papier mache with crepe collar, paper hat with silvery tinsel trim and finished with acrylics, sugary glass glitter and sparkly mica flakes. Stands upon a box.

If you'd like to see more pictures, they're here at Flickr.

I am thinking about doing a "Grand Re-Opening" for my website and/or Etsy shop early next week and sell everything at 25% off it's original price for a limited time ( I sound like a television commercial!). More details coming soon! :-)

Swap Slide show coming in October...

I'd like to post a slide show of swaps sent and/or received. If you wouldn't mind emailing me your photos by the end of next week, I will create and upload the slide show in early October. Some folks have already done this and I do appreciate it! Thanks so much everyone for participation in this swap!!!!

Storybook swap!

Received from one of my sweet swap partners Kathryn.....
As you can see, she went above and beyond. I am speechless at how awesomely every thing was packaged! And all the extra goodies! This was like opening a box full of joy!

I love this one....

Can't wait to sit through and read!

Another one of my favorites! Beautifully illustrated.

Be back with more soon!!!! :-)

I'm sorry! :-(

Yikes!!! I feel like every post I have written lately starts out the same way! So sorry I haven't been around both to post and to visit everyone's wonderful blogs, but between work, life and using every ounce of energy left over to fill orders and prep for fall shows.
I hope everyone has enjoyed participating in the book swap! I will be sending out my packages to my three wonderful partners tomorrow.
If you participated in the swap and have pics to share, please send me an email, I'd love to post all the pics here via a slide show.
Got lots of new little pixies and cuties to share with you all. I am putting finishing touches on
everything and should have some pictures to share this week! (Finger's crossed)
Be back soon! :-)

Vintage Storybook, Crafty Bookmark Swap!!

Helllllloooooo!!!!!!!!! It's been too long. I have been up to my elbows in paper mache getting my stock ready for Fall shows (almost there... and pics coming soon!). Just wanted to pop in to list final swap updates. The swap sign up deadline is today and I just recently sent out an email to everyone who signed up. If you have signed up, but didn't receive the email from me, please contact me, as I may not have your correct email address. I don't want to leave anyone out, so please let me know if I missed you somehow.

Thanks again to everyone for signing up and being so supportive and patient with me. I hope all is well and you are savoring every last moment of these precious summer days. Be back soon!!!!
