New Work!

I have been a busy little elf, working away on Christmas creations - I have so many ideas but can never find enough time to get them all done. It seems that each holiday is pushed on us earlier and earlier each year. I feel I need to hurry up and finish making things for Christmas so I can start on Valentine pieces. Grrrrrrrrrr I just want to enjoy Christmas!

I love the Christmas creations I have made - hope you do too! Here is a sneak-peek. You can find these and more soon in my Etsy shop! I have a studio workbench full of Christmas critters in the works, so stay tuned there are more on the way!

Love meeting new artists!

One of the great-great things about being an artist is the networking community of other artists you get to meet along the way. Many years ago, I met one of my dearest friends who is now part of my family, Sharon Bloom simply because we both admired each others work. Not sure who emailed who first but so glad that we did because still to this day she is a very important person in my life!

Just last week, Debra Schoch, of HopHopJingleBoo fame, an artist that I have admired for years, contacted me through my Etsy shop and wanted to buy a piece from me and asked if I would make her a second one - I was very excited! Today she added a link to my Etsy shop in her latest blog post and a mention about my work with photos. It means a great deal to me - love networking and sharing the love! Thanks Debra. Keep the circle alive! Below are a few pictures of her work - if you haven't checked her out - do so - she is an amazing talent! Here is a link to her Etsy shop.
