A work in progress......

I have been working on a new mixed media project, and have kind of just hit a wall. I'm not sure what else I want to add to it. I had planned on putting words where the red ball is, but I'm not sure. I just don't know what I want to do with it. It is done on canvas. The monkey and the branch part of the tree is a cutout from a 1920's children's book. The top of the tree, the background and sun/ball are done in acrylic paint. Comments are appreciated!

Bugging Around

After a few hours sitting at my desk with some sculpey clay I came up with three new creations. Two bugs and one penguin. They are up in the etsy shop now. 
Also if you haven't checked out her site yet, check out Donna Downey's website ( She is AMAZING! She's a scrapbooker/painter/mixed media artist. Not to mention super nice, I have emailed her a few times and she always writes back. Have a great day!

Lady Bug Is SOLD!

After only about 10 minutes online cutie lady bug has SOLD!!!!!!!! My first sale! I'm soooo excited!!!

A new polymer clay sculpture

I was in a sculpey mood yesterday and decided to take out the clay and have some fun. After a few failed attempts I made some ladybugs to put me in the Spring mood. I also stumbled upon a great site, it's a great place to get in touch with other artists, share photos, and find new etsy shops. So check it out if you haven't already.
I'm still waiting for that first etsy shop sale, I've been open for about 5 days and had about 50 views on each item so I think I'm off to a good start, I just have to get that one person who will make the sale. I am offering a free gift to the person who makes the first purchase in the pink chihuahua art etsy shop!!!!!!!
