Santa's Workshop is in full swing!

I worked for a few hours in my studio today and thought I would share a few photos from my messy work bench. I looked around and had all these little faces staring back at me. I was just telling my friend Sharon yesterday that I have this beautiful work table made from a recycled door - it's a nice large space to work on BUT at the moment I have an 8" x 10" area that I can actually work on - supplies take up all the rest - time to clean it up! I'm very excited about some of the pieces that I have recently finished - I'd love to keep them for my own tree! I hope to actually make a few for myself!

Hard at work

I have been feeling great and working hard.  Over the past couple of days I've whipped up a batch of naked spun cotton ornaments - here's a photo of them hanging out in a bowl eagerly awaiting some love and a fresh coat of paint. Now I'm off to create a few Santas before I head down to the studio to paint. We'll all see you soon!

Almost back home!

I checked into the hospital this past Tuesday for my latest round of chemo. All is going well I am doing great and I will be back home on Saturday morning! Just in time - the debut of my Etsy shop has gone well with five sales since Sunday. I have been busy sketching and have some great ideas for Christmas. I can't wait to get home and get creating!

My Etsy shop is FINALLY open!!!!

I opened my Etsy shop in March of 2008 always hoping that I would have the time to create work to fill it - but it never happened until tonight!.......3 years later.  What do they say, better late than never?

I'm so excited and proud of myself - I have created a batch of funky art dolls and spun cotton ornaments that I am very happy with. Yeah my shop is open!  Now to market it...

Here are a few pictures of my fun creations.
