SOLD- Button is approx 8" length and 4.5" sitting. She wears a hand stitched clown suit in light blue and purple with buttons all around her. But is a sad unsure of where she fits in clown with big violet colored eyes

Snow Queen

Calista Snow Queen 
She is created with polymer clay and covered with mica "micro pearl" pigment to create her shimmer. She was painted with blue acrylic accents around her eyes and lips so she looks like she has frostbite. lol Her crown is created from a translucent polymer clay and also covered in the mica. The Mica is mixed with a clear acrylic floating agent so it "paints on" and dries.
She has faux fur cuffs around her arms and faux fur around her ankles. Sparkly bits and beads adorn her and some super old Vintage ric rac with silver threads running through it. 

She was a lot of fun to create! Taking photos of her has been a challenge. The mica shimmers and looks different at all angles. lol
She is about 12" in length

Steampunk Christmas Holiday



The thing I love Most about Art Dolls is... I never know where they will take me. Last year I was painting  and selling needle felted goodies on Etsy. This year I have been sculpting Dolls and living in a Steampunk World ;) It's been so much fun watching each little person evolve and take on their own personality. It is amazing to me that a little lump of clay turns into a sculpted face that I honestly have no clue who they are going to be then just start to take on their own little life. Brindle is my Last Christmas Steampunk Girl Edwin was my last boy for this year. They have been soo much fun! I have some Zombies calling my name :D

Where has the time gone?

Wow I cannot get over it is December 1st? I feel like the days are whisking by and I would just love another hour or two please! Thanksgiving completely snuck up on me. I usually have the house decked out like a crazy North Pole by now. Honestly I am starting to panic. Last night I could not get to sleep I got up at midnight poured a glass of wine and hopped in the tub trying to relax. Panic attack....and I don't know why! lol
I think I need to schedule stuff out a bit better. Since it has just been me and my youngest daughter in the house  (they all moved out and went off to college) I feel like maybe I am not on the ball like I used to be. My time is more loosely scheduled and I think that is why I feel like it is slipping away? lol Or maybe I am just getting old and it's and empty nest thing? ugh.... well thanks for the therapy blogspot! hahaha

But in Etsy world I think I have been busy and have accomplished some work at least....(ya I guess this is where my time has been going O_o
This Is Gurty she is a creepy Elf and feels quite bad she has ruined Christmas....well she thinks! hahaha
