I feel like I should apologize for being absent for so much of this year. Not just here on my blog but also across all social media.

2015 has felt like a test. A long string of one bad thing after another happening to test my will, strength and sanity. Immediate family members have passed away. My husband was injured and had to have surgery. Several more things piled on top of all that. It seemed never ending. I admit there were a few times when I wondered if I would make it through. I am hoping that I passed and that the year will end happier than it began.

ColtPixy on etsy will probably not reopen until after the first of the year. I need time to create. We have family visiting from out of state until the beginning of November. After the way this year has gone it is so wonderful to spend time with loved ones just for the sake of being together. I will be back after they have gone and will try my best to be more active online.

Just a quick hello

Without going into any details there has been a lot going on that is keeping me busy offline. While I have been making new things I have not had a chance to photograph them to show here or to list them in my shop. I will be doing that soon but not making any promises on a date just yet.

Unfinished Object

This is a pixie I started sculpting a few months ago and never finished. I had planned on his having a soft sculpted wool body, His head and hands are made of air dry stone clay developed by doll artist Hannie Sarris. It is a lot different to work with compared to polymer clay and I did not think I would like working with it but I do. These need quite a bit more work. Then I need to sculpt the feet. I am thinking that I will needle felt the body once these things are finished and an armature is completed.
