Happy New Year!

Wow, time really does fly! It seems that the Christmas season arrives earlier and earlier each year and I'm still left feeling like it has passed me by.

Whew! I think I should start right away and maybe....just maybe I'll be ready next year or...maybe not.

In any case, it seems that no matter how you try to really keep Christmas in perspective and to realize that it is the day that we celebrate our Savior's birth- we, or me at least, still get caught up in all the expectations and am left feeling that somehow....I failed again.

But....the good thing is that the New Year is just about ready to begin and I can start all over again, with all good intentions. Yes a bright shiny New year. Yay!

By the way, I'm wishing you all a very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!

Mermaid Miss

The Fruit of The Spirit

"Miss Fruit-of-The-Spirit"

This is one of my favorite pieces. I recently sold two similar ones on ebay.
She is an oversize 6"collectible hanging ornament and she has a little removable tag that hangs from her bow, that lists all the Fruits of the Spirit,


Longsuffering (patience)
Meekness (kindness)
Temperance (self-control)

I plan on doing some more like this, so if you like this one as much as I do be sure and check back as I will be putting a notice on my blog before I list on ebay.
Today I will be listing some other large oversize ornaments so be sure and check them out. There is another one with fruit that I named "Tutti Fruitie". There is "Christmas Spirit" and "Christmas Bling"..... oh just go see on my ebay

Winter Carnival

" Winter Carnival"

This is a new little collage hanging
I have up on ebay at the moment.

When I work I sort of have an idea in my head about the direction I'm going in, but it usually changes. I knew with this one that I wanted to do a snowman, but Ms. Winter Carnival quickly took on a life of her own. The more I added to her,
the more she looked like my idea of "Carnival". She is a little crazy and festive and fun and a little retro on top of it. So I thought, OK....Winter Carnival!

She was a fun one to create. I also came across a great find of
vintage mica flakes that I had forgotten about. Yay! they are forgotten no longer.......

Check her out at my ebay shop and be sure and keep in touch because you never know what I might be listing next.

P.S. More Mermaids, Inspirational and Christmas things coming soon!
