Decieded To Give Back


Well in recent weeks I have felt very blessed. I have a wonderful life filled with good people. I am also very lucky in that I receive all kinds of nice blessing from people. This week alone I have received some no longer desired art supplies, a pie, lots of laughter, and was featured on a blog of a really nice lady. So I wanted to do some PIFs or pay it forwards in my shops. So in two of my shops there are items that only cost shipping and the 20 cent listing fee. I thought what better way to share my good fortune. I hope you all are feeling blessed as well. Oh the photo above is not for sale or any thing just some thing to make you smile.

Weird little Contest


So I made this doll and now I am trying to figure out what to do with her. So I started think about if I was a doll what would I want to have done with me. I quickly realized that sitting on a shelf or in a collection of freakish unrealistic animals that were stuff would not be my goal. I would want to travel. So Emma that's her name is going to be a lady of adventure. She will be traveling from me to some one and hopefully from them on to some one else and so on and so on. I would love it if Emma could travel get a picture from where ever she is with you or near by some thing you think is cool that you send me via email and we put it up on the blog. As she travels and I receive images of her I will share them here with you all.

So how do you enter because you know you like company and want to help Emma see the world. Well all you do is leave me a way to contact you and tell me what you will show Emma when she comes to visit. When I get 30 or more responses I will pick where she goes. You can be any where in the world just mention it in your post.

The rule of taking care of Emma

1. Emma is only visiting you must mail or take her to some one else. Emma is small her shipping is not that bad.

2. Please send me a picture of your adventure with Emma so we all can keep track of her.

3. Feel free to add a item to her dress or outfit to represent you or your home :)

4. Have fun and do it with love.

Well this is all lets see where you all want to take her. Have a great day all.

Meet Emma


So I want to introduce yall to some one. Her name is Emma. I don't know why but recently I have felt compelled to create dolls from scratch. So while my talents are sub par at best. I continued to produce this little doll. I created her in whole. First Emma had her head, hands, and feet made of clay. I then painted and glazed them. Next I stitched this poor girls frock and filled her with stuffing. So I am not sure exactly why I needed to make her but now I have a Emma. Her is my question. What should I do with her. Do I put her out on display? not sure because well she is less than perfect. Do I send her out traveling like the roaming gnome? So far this is what I am leaning towards. Any ideas would be much appreciated. I hope you all had a great weekend. Oh the small yellow flowery embellishment was a Pif I got from Youllbehooked a great little shop on Etsy.

My fabric was in superb condition not so much as a stray hair on it. The fabric smelled like just that fabric nothing weird or unpleasant. And then there is the actual shop. Tons of fun fun colors and styles. It was really hard to just pick one I almost ended up with rainbow curtains.

Volcano Dreams


Well today I am back on the dream project. Last night I was sleeping and dreamed of cutting threw a jungle. It was very amethyst colored from bunches of flowers. About half way into my trek I realized I was going up to a volcano. So this is my depiction of what I was going to. The plume of smoke swirled and almost seem to call me over. In any case I would love your opinions of it. Have a great day all.

My Morning Companion

Well today I just thought I would share a picture I did of me and my best furry pal. This is my cat and myself. Every morning he wants to be held like a baby and rub faces. I am cool with that as long as we take breaks for me to get some coffee. On day I was carrying him around while doing this and caught a image of his face in the mirror. So I set to work trying to capture the moment. In any case when I got the picture I failed to think about how I would be in it to. So now I have a portrait of us. Hmm still debating how weird it is to put up a picture of myself and my kitty. Hehe Have a great day yall.

Featured Etsy Seller Littleclaybabies




Hello all I had recently gotten out of the habit of featuring shops then I came across some really great ones and just had to share. This shop I want to talk about today is Littleclaybabies. This lady makes small and miniature clay creations. I bet she can make bigger if you ask.


I saw her shop and fell in love with the sweet expressions and amazingly creative creations she comes up with. So I asked her to do a custom work for me of two very special Christmas ornaments. They were to be my father and his friend riding horses. She took every detail and put it in that I asked about. They look so accurate I laugh every time I see them. Littleclaybabies is the very model of professionalism. She always responded back promptly to any questions. Made sure I was happy with them. Let me also mention that I did not need any changes as she made them so perfectly. When they showed up which was also very fast they were wrapped great and safely. They look every bit if not even better in person. So after having such a wonderful experience with a shop I just wanted to share it. Her little animals have a very reasonable price range I think if any thing to low for her wonderful work. So if you are looking for a special item I suggest trying here. I will always look at these two little ornaments and love how no one else in the world has exactly these. So any how here is a link to this wonderful shop. http://www.littleclaybabies.etsy.com/ . I also posted her wonderful work on my ornaments above.

Fall Friends Stuffed And Furry




Well I want to start with a apology. I have been under the weather a bit and just not had the energy to keep up with my blog. I am doing much better now and will be all around saying hello.


So any how here is my story for the day. I love stuff. In fact I am one of those people who switches out there decor every season so I can see different stuff. My stuff does not need to be expensive actually I prefer weird little this and that's.


However even I must clean out the closets from time to time. So I bagged up all those stuffed animals people had given me over the years and gave them to good will for some one else to love. I did save a few very important ones from loved ones past etc.


This is when the inspiration came in. I sat in vain trying to figure out what to do with them. Then I thought hmm why not make them part of the seasonal rotation. So here in all its glory is my fall pillow/ stuffed animal collection. It just looks so friendly and has inspired me to make a couple more pillows. Oh by the way I made some and bought some of those things there but all of it was hand made. Which I think rocks.


The second picture is of one of my kitties also enjoying the fall display. I think he fits in just perfectly. As you can tell he was helping me set up the display. Have a wonderful day yall.

Dream Project

Well hello all this is a image I created in my sketch book. I love playing with more than one thing like markers, watercolors, and charcoal all at once. This is from a dream where I looked down and just watched these little creatures play in a icy blue pond. From the dream I can tell you the surrounding fields etc. The direction of the wind in accordance with the sun as well. The type of flowers I could smell. So my thought is what did it mean.
So I am going to start a project and I would love opinions and stories of your own dreams. I have kept a detailed account of many dreams I have books full of the details. So I am going to turn them into little short stories and do artwork for them to try and get to the idea of why such vivid dreams occur. For me they are nightly and I feel a desire to give them a place to be other than in my sleep.
Now my question for you all is how often do you dream? What do you dream? How much do you remember? well have a good day all hope you enjoyed this odd little plan. as I work on this it will be shared here.

Need a New Idea


Well today I am writing about new ideas. Recently I noticed a little void in my creative ebb. So I asked around and here is what every one told me to try. Go out and do some thing a little different. For me it was creating a few throw pillows with a fall theme. Then doing a scavenger hunt with some kids. For you it maybe some new music or a different restaurant. However after doing this I noticed that it is very true that if you just switch up your activities a little you can really get your juices flowing. So I put up this picture from the last time I really felt I wanted to try some thing new. Good luck to all and have a great day.

Made a Little Some Thing For Me


Hi all I hope your having a great weekend. I was thinking recently of how fun it is to treat yourself by making a special item just for you. So that is what I did. I have a little collection of fall pillows and made myself one to go along. In fact I was so happy with it I may make a couple more out of the same fabric.

So I have a question for you. What is your favorite item to make as a treat for yourself? And my second question is do you remember to treat yourself. If not I highly recommend it as it is very fun. Have a great day all. Oh the photo is of the little pillow I made. They are all mini pillows and I think they are so cute.
