I FINALLY posted some new items to my shop!

These items aren't new in that I have just made them, but they are items that I finally have decided that I can bear to sell. Sometimes I have to sit with my creations awhile before I can send them on.

As much as I love Mr. Squints, the time has come to set him free. His surliness has taken on a new tone of frustration. He may only be 1 inch tall, but he can carry an attitude!
He is tired of looking at me.
He wants to find a Blythe to cuddle. He thinks Blythe is a hottie.

"Are you looking at me?"

Here is a sweet little pumpkin girl. I hope she finds a cozy spot on a nature table somewhere. She was made with no wires, no beads...nothing but wool. Simplicity incarnate.

This is my snowman. He was created using paperclay over an armature. I wired some ribbon for his scarf and made a teensy tree from a sliver of wood, some tinsel and a little woolen tree topper. It was a lot of fun to do. A bit outside my normal realm.

Meet Ratty Tatty. He is a grizzled old thing. He was made using wool roving, wool felt, German glass beads and thread.
I love the little hunch on his back

Last (for tonight, that is) but not least is my baby opossum. I finally decided to post him on etsy, though I love, love, LOVE him. He has such a sweet demeanor, in my opinion. He will be hard to let go.

I am hoping that I can finish posting the rest of my other items tomorrow.

Did I mention that I have three new commissions? Things are looking up!
If you want to stop by the shop, feel free!
Until next time, happy shop postings!



  1. I can see why you have held on to these beauties for so long.
    They are so cute.
    I am glad things are looking up.
    Here are to many more for you!

  2. I just love all these little sweeties!

    I think they are very wonderful and will find great homes : )

  3. Love them all, esp Mr Ratty Tatty.
    Blessings and magic.

  4. I can see why it would be hard to part with these little characters with big personalities, Theresa. The snowman is REALLY adorable, Ratty Tatty looks as if he has a few good stories to tell. Since they all will be leaving a VERY loving home, I hope they will find the same wherever they may, Rose

  5. The polar bear and the opposum are ADORABLE!!!! Hope they go to good homes!


  6. Your animals are soo cute!! You do such fabulous work!

  7. Thanks, all. Tomorrow is the youngest one's first day of "real school". He'll be gone for three hours a day. Though I will miss him, he is ready and I am ready to have a little time set aside each day to be more productive. This is my last year to try and "make it" or I will have to go back to a job that doesn't involve paperclay, wool, or imagination. Wish me luck!
