sweet sentiments for Valentines day...

Feeling so ready for 2015!  I just cleaned up my work table and space.  Also wondering how long THAT tidiness will last! But with a fresh table comes fresh paper and a newly sharpened pencil.  Let the sketching begin.

Next on the holiday calendar is Valentines day.  And as usual, its a holiday I've always hated.  Oh wait, I just told a lie. As a child it was pretty awesome.  Oh wait, another lie.  Disappointment again.  I always had that feeling Charlie Brown experienced when he had received only a bag of rocks. Me? I never did that ONE Valentine I had hoped for from the boy down the lane.  Even at 8 I was let down.  So is there ever hope in the endless pursuit of love happiness?  

So in honor of Valentines day because it just sucks...  I'm conjuring up some love bugs.  Maybe a better name, love stink bugs. Ya, that it!  Love Stink Bugs.  

Come back again in a day or two and see what sweet evil characters come from my endless years of heartbreak.

Hidden gems!

These two creepy snowmen where on my website and I had forgotten about them.  Yes, my website has taken the back burner for now as Etsy is the place to sell!  I am almost completely sold out of all Christmas pieces this year.  I believe I have less than 4?  Two of them are mini's.  These guys are full size and really fun!  There is only hours left of my 15% off sale.  Please check it out and take advantage of this discount.

Finally listed! GREAT GIFTS!!!!!!


Not a clay sculpture! Something new :)

My hands needed a break from the clay last week so I decided to make some designs on plates.  I found these cool pens that let you draw on glass surfaces.  After drawing up characters you simply bake to set!  Permanent!

These will be available in my Etsy shop sometime today 11/30/14.  All will be under 30.00 each.

updated photo and some new halloween

I updated a few of the photo's of the Santa in my Etsy shop as the ones I had up really stunk.  I think this shows him more as he is ; ) And I just posted two Halloween wooden finial style pumpkin pieces.  I had these at the show I did a few months back but no takers.  They are really bright and very festive!  I had these amongst my Halloween characters I have here and they really stood out!  Love them.  But they need homes.  here is a link!

day of the dead skelly man and peppermint folk art girl with lollipop

I'm currently painting two really cute pieces.  One is a Christmas Peppermint girl in a dress with big pigtails and the other is a Day of the Dead skelly man with top hat.  Both of these could be finished today.  And both will be posted in my Etsy shop.

These will be in my Etsy shop tomorrow.

The top Surprised Pumpkin man and springy Ghost is 2014's Halloweens best.  I do one every year.  The head of the pumpkin man is finely cracked and the ghost bounces about! The two pumpkins in the next photo will be available tomorrow as well.
