I am sooo excited! I have been in the mood to create! I have a couple pieces in the works. One of them is almost finished so I thought I would share a picture. I am calling this "A Witchy Wardrobe"
I am planning on doing Etsy Release's with my Art! I Can't wait to show you the little birdies that I am working on and an Owl! :0) I haven't decided on the date of my First Release. To Be Announced. :0) I will keep you posted.
Just a Fun Post to Share a Swap that Jackie from FatJakOriginals and I did. We met at my house about a month ago and we decided to do a swap with each other. She chose a piece that I already had made, Ms. Blue Bird . Click and scroll to the bottom of that post for pics. She fell in Love with her when she met her. :0)
She said she was going to make something for me in return. Well, my goodness, she TRULY OUTDID herself! So not a fair swap, although she insists it is. Here is The Piece that Jackie created for me. I am in Awe, in Love and Mesmerized by this Angel!
Jackie created her using Paperclay and mounted her on a vintage wooden plant stand. The heart has french words collaged on it. Every Detail of this Angel is so special. Right down to the beautiful Rust Color she used to paint her body. I don't know if you can tell from the picture, but she is HUGE!!!! She stands very tall and makes quite a statement.
Thank You so much Jackie!!! I Love her and will treasure her forever!
Here is Ms. Halloweenie Queenie she is finally finished! I am really excited about how she turned out! She really is a BIGGER doll. She measures 23 inches from her Head to the Tip of her Glittery Slippers. With her hat she measures 26 inches. She is weighted and feels so special to hold and she just sits so nicely.
Her Tulle Skirt is so dainty and fun!
Look at those Ribbons!!!
Don't you just LOVE these glittery slippers????
She will be featured on The Primitive Gathering September 15th. If you are interested in her Email Me and if you Purchase her through my blog you will receive an extra Goodie. :0)
OMG!!! Last week Friday Myself, Jackie from FatJakOriginals and Jenn from Noodle and Lou all got together at Jackie's house! It was sooo much fun to meet with other artists. We shared so much! Our children all played wonderfully together while we got to browse and drool over each other's creations. We talked about so much and it felt like our couple hours were just wee minutes. I can't wait to get together again! Thanks so much girls for such a WONDERFUL Day!! I am still inspired by both of you! Not only did we meet, but we all exchanged gifts!!! I feel like one lucky girl to have those BEAUTIFUL Noodle and Lou Notecards! I am going to hoard them and one is going in a frame for sure! Look at those glittery letters! I LOVE glitter!!! That little FatJakOriginals Birdie is to die for! He is just so Adorable!!! Thank You soooo much GIrls! I feel sooo lucky! Please go visit Jackie and Jenn's Blogs and prepare to drool! There Art if Fabulous and their company goes beyond words!
Here is a sneak peek of a couple things I am working on.....
A new painting I did on wood........
A NEW Dollie in the works which will make her debut appearance soon!!!
I am also working on getting some Candles uploaded to my Etsy for those of you that might want to try one! You will not be disappointed!
With Summer at a Tail End and Fall approaching, this time of the year is One of my Favorites! Harvesting Begins, Cool Nights followed by Dewey Mornings. I wanted to share with you some photos of my Gardens that I Treasure. Gardening for me is right up on the list with Dollmaking. It is such a beautiful reward to see something so small as a seed grow into something so beatiful! I hope you enjoy the photos of my flowers and my vegetables. Oh and the Fairy Garden too!
One of my dinner plate Dahlia's that I harvested for my flower vase inside.
I just LOVE Zinnia's and the Malva behind them is such a nice backdrop in my front gardens. All grown from seed.
More Zinnia's in my side gardens. I have a Pussy Willow Shrub tucked in way back in the corner. Can't wait to harvest some buds in the spring.
Here is a picture of my Sweet Annie Plant. Not so big, but hopefully, it will grow better next year. I LOVE the smell of sweet Annie!
This is a photo of my Climbing Cypress Vine. It produces those wonderful small red flowers that the Hummingbirds go crazy for. I harvest the vines for projects at the end of the season.
Do you recognize this? It isn't quite ready yet. It is Bittersweet. Those berries will be a beautiful orange soon!!!
Here is the very Rustic little Fairy Garden. It needs some work, but at least we started on it this year. The kids helped and had a couple treats in their treasure boxes that the Fairies left for them. The Gnome Door was made by my Dad! ISn't is awesome??? I painted the Fairy House. This kids each painted a bird house. It was so much fun!
Here is a glimpse of my Veggie Garden. The tomatoes were so plentiful this year. We have harvested and already cooked down several and shared so many with our neighbors as well. I have to get back to picking this week. I would like to try my hand at canning someday soon!
So you can see I have been more than busy with Gardening. I have also been SUPER busy with my Candles and Roomsprays. A brand new Fall Line was just released last week along with a New Look.
New Scents include, Cider Mill, Caramel Apple, Butterfield Bakery, Coffee House Latte, Pumpkin Cheesecake and Spiced Pumpkin. Coming Soon will be Banana Nutbread and Pumpkin Latte. These are currently for sale directly through me. Email me to order. I will also have them for sale through my Etsy Shop Soon and on the 15th Release of The Primitive Gathering. Have a wonderful week. I have some more Exciting news to share with you tomorrow! A meeting with friends that was so much fun!!
