Just taking a minute to share my newest Santa that I will be putting up for sale. Also wanted to wish you all Merry Christmas and hope that all your wishes and dreams come true this year.
This is one of my hand carved wooden Santas. I am trying to finish up projects started years ago and never quite finished. It takes forever to carve these from wood. I love the addition of the giraffe in his basket, kind of wild but fun. Thanks for sharing my work with me, I appreciate your support and comments throughout the year. Tammy

Okay, they are probably just planning Christmas present quotas but they sure whisper a lot when I am working. Just finished these little hand carved elves and will be shipping them off today. They have the cutest little ears and bottoms, I will miss these little men! Hope you are enjoying the season. Thanks for stopping by.

Merry Christmas everyone! It's time for the update on the 13th of this month and I have a very special Santa I would like to give a sneak peek of. This is one of those pieces that I have been working on for over 3 years and many, many hours of work. I love how he turned out and putting together the toys on his garland he holds was so much fun! He is a carved wooden Santa that stands over 21" tall. I sculpted his face and beard however, so I could give him the detail I felt he needed. Hope you are all enjoying the season and will take a few minutes to drop by and check out the art on Spookytimejingles. There are some wonderful offerings this month.
October was a different month for our family. My father in law passed away at the age of 99 and it was sad but a blessing too. What a rich and full life he led. I haven't had a chance to share much of the few things I managed to make that month so I thought I would show a few of my favorite. This witch bust was so fun! Every once and awhile I capture a feeling and she has so much joy in her face. Thanks for stopping by.

It's been quite awhile since I have had something to offer on Ebay and I am excited to see what happens. This little fellow has so much work and detail in him, I hope people can see it. I just love these laughing moons and could probably make them and nothing else and be happy. If you want to check Mr. moon Man out you can follow this link. EBAY Moon
Thanks for dropping by and sharing my work with me.

I just wanted to introduce two little brothers, Trick and Treat. These two go everywhere together and they are really excited for Halloween. These two just make me laugh every time I look at them. My son won't leave them alone, he likes them so much! I'm clearing shelves, dusting off cobwebs and getting ready to put up some Halloween decorations. Hurray!

It's almost time for the Ahqu update and look what happened to my listing. I threw a few tiny silk Autumn leaves in a bowl and added some hand painted gourd eggs and stars. Instant laughter!! They are having so much fun rolling around in those leaves. Come visit the Halloween Queens on the 1st and see all the goodies. Follow the link to the right and visit the Boo Castle. See ya there.

Hi everyone, One of my brand new creations and then I will be off for at least a week filling orders. I just love these gourd eggs. They are so much fun to hold. Of course I spent way to much time on each one but it was pure pleasure painting them. They come in their very own vintage wooden bowl and they even rattle inside. Who knows what will hatch? Thanks for sharing my work with me. Tammy
PS...These have sold, wish I could keep them

There was an old witch who lived in a hat. She looked out the window and says "Where's that darn cat?"
The cat was upstairs trying to eat him a crow
and the bird laughed and pooped with a "Watch out below!"
I am still laughing at the poem my sister, Sue, wrote when I sent her pictures of my latest sculpt. She is one clever person! This is a new design for me and it is sold. I have new respect for miniature artists as it was really hard to sculpt a tiny witch and cat! Thanks for sharing my art with me.

Did you know that when a bunch of pumpkins get together on Halloween for a party that one of them inevitably shouts "Pumpkin stack!"? Then there's a mad scramble and no one wants to be on top. Look at this little guy, he is scared to death! I love doing these, I kept laughing every time I looked at their faces. This ornament sold right away but I am busily working on more for the Halloween season. Thanks for stopping by and sharing my work with me.

I just finished this piece and just love this big grinning moon! I think it would look great with some Autumn flowers in it since it is waterproof. I think it would be great with Halloween shakers too. I think I am going to look around for some more to do. This one is sold but I do have my Moonlight witch up on ebay this week for those who might be interested. Hope you are all enjoying the summer.

It always come around so fast and it's almost the 13th of the month and that means new goodies on Spookytimejingles! It' hard to believe that Halloween is only 3 months away. I can legally decorate at my house on the 1st of September (according to my husband). This new witch sculpture took on a life of her own and she is just loaded with details and a few new things I tried for the first time. Here's a few pictures and I hope you will drop by at midnight (Eastern time) on the 12th/13th and check out my witch and all the other wonderful treasures to be had. Thanks for stopping by!

My regular job has slowed to a trickle so I am having so much fun making new designs! I am especially happy with these two owl ornaments. One was a suggestion from a great customer and I thought the squirrel turned out so cute. Then I just had to try an owl in a witch hat. I loved watching Molly the owl hatch her chicks on the internet last year. So I had to do a barn owl. It has such a magical look. I might have to do more of these. Both are sold. Thanks for sharing my art with me.

Yes, it's me again, with my newest ornament. I am calling this one moonlight madness because I think the moonlight has gone to their heads! Something is awfully funny! Starting this month of August, AHQU, is featuring a separate ornament page. I've seen some of the goodies and there is some real treasures. These little celestial bodies are my offering for this month. When I started selling folk art over 3 years ago, these moon ornaments were one of the first things I did. Be sure and stop by and check everything out. The Bootique opens around noon on August 1st. Thanks for stopping by.

He will be available on the 1st of August on the Queens Bootique (Link on sidebar). Please contact me if you want further info. Be sure to come check out the great art. Things are heating up as we get closer to Halloween.

Hi everyone, just wanted to share a super fun ornament that I just completed for one of my customers. This is one of those that is going to be hard to mail off. I wish I had my own tree full of ornaments but I am just grateful that I have people who want to collect my work. It allows me to keep doing what I love. Thanks for stopping by.

This should be an exciting update this month! We are celebrating by donating part of our proceeds to the "Make a Wish foundation". Of course there will be a fabulous surprise guest as always. I am featuring a Trick or treating spider that looked wonderful among my flowers with his bright lime green legs and hats. Theses little spiders take me forever to make 8 little Jack O' lanterns to carry but are so worth it when they are done. Be sure and come check out the site at 12 midnight on the 12th of July. Click here to check it out. Thank you for coming by and sharing my art with me.

Oh wow! I have been away from my blog for so long. Lots of family problems but things are looking better in the New Year. Excited to get back to creating and I am brimming over with new ideas! I have one of my favorite Pumpkin stack ornaments up on STJ tonight. I love making these and each one is so different. I don't think I ever tire of sculpting faces. I hope you will check out STJ if you get a chance, some wonderful art from my fellow Spookytimejingle's artists. You can click here to visit the site. Here's to a brighter and happier New Year!!!
