I finally finished my Merkitty and now have it listed on Ebay.

This one was a real challenge for me and I must admit I'm really happy with the way it turned out. I love, love, love working with paperclay. It lets me sculpt more complicated pieces then when I was sculpting in wax and making my own molds. I also like creating one of a kinds because recreating the same piece over and over makes my brain freeze ... lol

You can find my Merkitty here. Ebay.

WIP - Merkitty

Once upon a time I use to paint lots of ACEOs or ATCs. I have been wanting to try my hand at recreating them as sculptures. This is the first one and I'm really happy with the way it's turning out. I still have the base to sculpt and it's starfish and pearl necklace to finish but I wanted to show you all a wip picture of what I've been up to. I'm hoping to have it finished by the end of the weekend.

Do you have dust bunnies?

I do and I just caught one! I was doing my weekly cleaning, trying to vacuum under my bed when all of a sudden my vacuum got plugged with something. Great, I just vacuumed up another one of my hubbahubby's socks! Was I surprised to see what the vacuum really got plugged with! Yes, I had caught a sock alright but it was in the mouth of the biggest dust bunny I've ever seen! After I pulled him out of the hose all he said to me was, "What sock?"

Dancing in the snow

Although I have been known to dance in the snow this time it isn't me. :) Presenting "Winter's Dance", my newest snowperson figurine.

The tutu is made with some of that wonderful wire ribbon my mom and I found after the holidays. I bought rolls and rolls of lots of different colors and patterns and you'll be seeing it showing up in more of my art. I think it adds so much to the figurine and I love working with it. Thank you Mom for dragging me shopping that day!

Her crown was made from beads I found one weekend at a garage sale. I even got the little crytals there as well. People have no idea what they sometimes just give away at garage sales and I bet some of you are like me, always thinking "What can I turn that into......" lol.

Snowman - You Melt my Heart

Even a snowman needs love and when it happens his heart just melts.

My newest sculpture is a paperclay cutie! I used another one of those wonderful glass icicles I had made. I'm going to have to order more of those cause I like them soooooo much and they're fun to create with.

Hope you all enjoy and thanks for stopping by.

Melting Heart pendant

Just finished a few heart pendants. This is the only one I got a half decent picture of. Hubby was using my camera the other day to take pictures of the snow in our yard and he changed a few settings. Lol, now I have to remember how I had it set up. Oh well ..... such is married life!

It's polymer clay with sterling silver wire for hanging. The little ice crystal is a real glass bead that I have custom made to use in my art. They are the cutest things and I love working with them.

Let is Snow! ornament

I just love the expression on his face, so content and happy with the new snowfall. I had some custom glass icicles made for me to add to my sculptures and I think this one looks wonderful hanging from his nose.

This will be my last ornament for this Christmas. I'm getting on a jet on Monday to fly to my folks for Christmas and New Years and Mom and I will be baking up a storm so I'll be too busy playing in flour with no time to play in clay. I will bring a sketch pad though, just so I don't lose what's left of my mind. I already have new designs swirling around in my mind and if I don't get them down on paper I'm pretty sure I'll drive my folks bananas and that really is the last thing I want to do. Mom may be much shorter than me but she can still put me in my place ... lol

HAPPY HOLIDAYS to all of you! May you and yours share goods times, love, laughter and an extra slice of pie!

SOLD If you like this ornament but you missed out on it just email me or contact me through my etsy shop and I'll be happy to create one like it just for you.

Snowman with cardinal in his hat

This is my favorite snowman ornament so far. It's really going to be hard to send this one on it's way when it sells.

Fa La La Snowman

I'm on a roll today. I just finished this snowman ornament. This one even got a comment from my often quiet hubbahubby. He likes the detail on the hat, said it looks like real knit. Love that man! He does love my art but admits he's no artist so mostly I get, "That's nice" When he picks out a detail it just about knocks me over.

It's sculpted in paperclay, is about 4" tall with wire. Can any of you tell I'm getting hooked on paperclay? I call this one "Fa La La"

You can find this and others in my Etsy shop.
