Once There Was a Snowman.....

 A sweet vintage style snowman with enough charm to steal your heart, this little guy will be hard to part with. I guess I can always make more, right?
Hand sculpted out of paper clay, painted, sealed and antiqued, he sparkles from a coat of sparkle glaze. He may show up in my etsy shop, I've not decided yet. For now he will keep me company as inspiration for more little snowmen.

PFATT Marketplace Offerings A Sweet Snow Angel and Santa

 This sweet snow angel was created to bring a little light and cheer. Her head was hand sculpted and painted, and then she was mounted in a vintage glass light shade. She has been gussied up with pearly bead garland and fluffy feather boa with tinsel. She stands on a wood base that has been gussied up as well. You can lift her up to turn on a little tea light that is included.
This handsome santa was completely hand sculpted from polymer clay. He has loads of charm and has also been hand painted. See them both at:  PFATT Marketplace

New Santa from polymer clay, a plug for Polyform Products

Finally got my first polymer clay Santa done, and I am so thrilled with polymer clay! Super sculpey is so easy to work with, and takes paint nicely. I love, love, love it! So, if you have ever wondered if you should try polymer clay I say yes!

One Santa Blue, Two Santas Red.....

 When we lived at Fairchild AFB outside of Spokane, Washington, Mom decided to have a turquoise themed Christmas. We had just moved from Taiwan, where they had picked up furniture and drapes with teal and turquoise in them. So Mom melted down some crayons and made the prettiest turquoise candles that she topped with whipped paraffin "snow". I loved the colors we had that year, which is what inspired me to created this Santa. This Santa is made of Wallowa Lake driftwood and clay. You can find him in my etsy shop: MothersDreamRtworks
 Another driftwood Santa, sporting a wreath and cones. He is up for auction on ebay: Mothers Dream Artworks
A 5 inch gourd Santa, he is also on ebay: Mother's Dream Artworks

I hope you take a moment and stop by to see what else is available. Have a great day!

Philgrimm, Thanksgiving Pilgrim Pumpkin Man, My First Finished Polymer Clay Piece

Oh boy, a new art doll adventure and a fun one for sure. I have never really taken a good look at polymer clay, as I didn't like the baking process, but I was given some tips by some folks I met at Hallowbaloo, and found out it isn't as bad as I thought. So, I wanted to create something for Thanksgiving as I feel it's a much forgotten holiday, but one that is so important because its a time of celebrating harvest, family and our blessings from God. I hope to make some more, but am waiting on an oven here in Utah. This handsome fella is available at:    MothersDreamRtworks
