New bear!

Whew! Today is flying by! I have a new bear completed…he’s a larger size than the last group I made, measuring in at approximately 10 inches tall. I made him a simple pom-pom “scarf” from some leftover wool yarn I had. I love making pom-poms. They come out so much nicer looking than the ones […]

Whew! It’s been awhile!

What have I been up to?? It’s been a very, very long time since I’ve updated this blog! Between health issues (which will be a post somewhere down the road!), raising a quite charmingly sassy three-almost four year old, switching over to a mostly whole foods based lifestyle (which means literally cooking and baking darn […]

2 new “dolls”

okay….my second doll is named “abe”! abe sports a “smiths” t-shirt and red & white tube socks! he’s made from cloth & paperclay & painted with acrylics & a fabric marker. i have attached some yarn to the back so he can hang on the wall (i think he looks best hanging!). here’s some pics […]

Clay & cloth doll!
