Still making witches!!

I still haven't run out of ideas for witches yet so here is a few more. They both sold to people on my newsletter right away. It seems I can't do enough of them. Fine by me! This is my first attempt at a pumpkin witch and I got some fun new trims and some tiny glass bubbles I put on my purple witch. The harlequin pattern is striking but horribly time consuming. I just can't do simple. Anyway, thank you for sharing with me and I have to tell you how much I enjoy hearing from my fellow artists. It means so much!

Two kitties

Made these two fun cats over the weekend. The harlequin cat sold right away before I listed but the other one just listed on eBay. If you mention you saw it on my blog, I will take $10.oo off the "buy it now" price. Please notice I added a bow tie to the one in the top hat. These were very labor intensive but so worth it. Hope everyone had a fun long holiday weekend! Oh, the second cat sold too. I am sure there will be more kitties down the road though.

Bird happy Santa!

I have been entertaining myself by carving tiny miniature wooden birds to add to my sculptures. First I did a witch and then did another with her hat as a birdhouse. Both of these sold right away. Today I have a Santa with three types of birds on his hat. Just love them. He has chickadees, goldfinch, and a cardinal. How fun is that! I just listed him on ebay if you want to check out my auction. Thanks for looking!

Spookytimejingles update!

Oh it's time for a spookytimesjingles update on the 13th of this month. This will be my second time listing with them and I am as excited as everyone else to see what new artists creations there will be. I managed to do a Santa ornament for my Christmas page. He has one of the best Santa faces I think I have ever done. Also put my scary witch ornament on there as well as a big Vampire bat done in orange and black. Hope you'll all come check out the site!

All my witches!

This week I have been into making witches! What fun, I had no idea there were so many witch collectors out there. I challenged myself to do different types, themes, and some new materials and did three of them. First I did an old crone that turned out truly spooky. Different for me in that there is no hint of laughter in her. She is so scary though she makes me laugh. I used water colors on her face though and came up with some fun effects. I like the little bat detail on her hat. The next is a real departure in that I wanted to do a young pretty witch. I wanted her to be more truly folksy so she has no trace of glitter and more muted colors. I used some vintage bottle brush and hand carved black birds on her hat. Even used some black silk thread for her hair. Next the more traditional witch but I added a sculpted crescent moon on her hat and matched her eyes to the hat. Can't you just hear them all cackling together?? Not sure where they will be listed, will keep everyone posted.
