New Ebay store listings! The Little Prince and more!

I have been busy filling my Ebay store with both jewelry and dolls! I have listed a new baby fairy sleeping in a flower. Her name is "Summer Bug" and she is delightfully soft looking and very pastel in her cabbage rose bed. My other doll is jointed, using my own technique. Her name is Hannah and she comes with a cute little doggie, Huggles, and an inspirational book, "Hugs." She is jointed at the arms and legs so you can pose her in a variety of positions. I made her dress so that it is removable. You might want to make more clothes for her!

I also listed some fabulous "Memory Box" jewelry. The Little Prince coin box pendant is a special piece that is sure to touch the hearts of those who love the sweet story written by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. I was very tempted to keep it for myself, but sometimes you have to let go.

Then, there is the antique key pendant, which I think is very striking. The rectangular glass pendant, "Somewhere In Time," would make a style statement on any lady looking for a unique piece of jewelry.
I hope you enjoy my new work. My passions are sculpting and soldering and I am so very blessed to wake up every morning with enthusiasm to create art!

Back to work~jointed doll nearly finished!

I can't believe how fast this summer is going! I was in Michael's the other day and was blown away to see fall decorations on the shelves. Didn't we just have fall? Like my parents told me, time speeds up as you get older. Christmas used to take an eternity to come around. Now, I think it comes about twice a year!

We had a wonderful fishing trip vacation in Michigan with our kids, but last week, I got back to work on my dolls and jewelry. I am almost finished with a jointed toddler doll. I think she is going to be really cute! She is blond with a black bow in her hair. Tomorrow I will work on her clothing. I use my own jointing technique on my full sculpt dolls.

I also have some really awesome jewelry finished and plan to list some pieces on Ebay. I opened an Ebay store last week. I haven't figured it all out, but little by little I hope to fill it with my work and keep it interesting.

I know it's been a little slow here in the blog, but please don't give up on me! I am working and will post photos really soon!

Higgns Lake here I come!

I was hoping to get my new jointed doll ready to show you before I leave for a week long fishing trip in Michigan, but I ran out of time.

Higgins Lake is where we took the boys for summer vacations when they were growing up. We will meet our middle son, his wife, and our grandson, Paul, there. We will get to see him fish for the first time! He is going on two years old. As you can see from the photo, Higgins is Caribbean blue, spring fed, and has a sandy bottom.

My California kids will be holding down the fort here at home and looking after Millie, our 13 year old Wire Haired Fox Terrier. She will be depressed the entire time we are gone because she is in love with Alan and will probably lie by the front door waiting for him to come home.

Anyway, I won't be posting until I get home on the 11th. I will finish my doll and post her as soon as I can, so please stay tuned!

Look out rock bass at Point Detroit! We are coming after you!
