Its been so long!!!

Since my last post. I can't believe how much time has passed. I have really good excuse, really!! I bought a 1950's house back in November and it was a complete strip to the studs remodel. My dad and I did the whole project all by ourselves other than having the windows replaced. I have learned so much and way too much about house wiring and plumbing,LOL! It was so much fun! Except sheetrocking the ceilings, It won't hurt my feelings at all to never get to have that experience again! We haven't finished the whole thing yet but we did complete 1200 sq.ft of living space in less than 100 days and we didn't have those crews like flip this house has. I still walk around in total amazement. I can't believe we did it, and its just so awesome!! Love my house!! Will try to be better about posting!

Its November Already!

Time is flying by! And I am so behind!! I just finally finished my last Halloween Item, way late, but that is nothing new for me!LOL! I have one Thanksgiving item started and no Christmas started. Dang! One would think after selling on Ebay for almost ten years now I would learn to be ready for the holiday seasons well in advance but I just don't seem to do it! Here is my second version of Bear Dracula. When I made the first one, my daughter pointed out that he should be a black bear with a white face. Actually I did think about making him out of black fur but I can't get it to photograph well for my listings! I started thinking about how to give him a white face and decided to experiment! I made his head out of cotton canvas, that I sculpted paperclay over to give his nose and eyes three dimensions. I think painted him with acrylic paint and put lots of gloss on his eyes. I think he came out cute! He will be up on Ebay later tonight!

Playing in Fairy Land!

I have been making fairies as of late!LOL! My local doll group decided to make some fimo fairies with the use of molds. My hats off to you artist that make these little creations from scratch! It took me hours and hours just to smooth mine out after removing from the mold! Sculpting with clay is not one of my talents!LOL! It was so frustrating! I decided to design a fairy bear instead! Much more in my comfort zone! The wings are my favorite part! Here are my fairies! My fairy bear is listed on Ebay!

My New Center Piece!

I spent several days last week stripping , sanding and refinishing this large wooden bowl that was a 50 cent garage sale find. I thought it would be great to hold my hand made pumpkins and squash I like to display during the holidays, but it seems Toby thinks its existance is for another purpose! As you can see my rule about no cats on the table is still going right over his head!LOL!

I have been busy!

I promised myself I would post everyday in here but I seem to run out of time on a regular basis! I have actually been productive lately! Here are some pictures of my latest creations. Sunshine (Yellow bear) is currently up on Ebay. Littlebit(1.5"), Flutterfly bear, and Chloe will be on ebay later tonight! I am almost finished with my first fairy bear, will get pictures posted soon!

My offering this month is a sweet attic bear that I made using a pattern by SweatMeadowsFarm and her sweet babies made with a pattern by Bowls-n-Annies. I used a very vintage wool coat to make my bear and dressed her in a sweet antique baby dress. This set is going to be very hard for me to part with.
