Pencil drawing from 1994

This pencil drawing I made of my mom back in 1994. Does not feel like all that long ago. Time passes so quickly. It is large, this is a 25 inch tall frame that it is in.

Mosaic with Stroppel Cane

The sun went down a few hours ago so this is not the greatest photo but this is what I made today. It is a polymer clay mosaic with Stroppel Cane for the grout.

I mix my own colors and had all these little scraps of metallic shades that were destined for the mud pile. That is until I saw Alice Stroppel's blog post about her Stroppel Cane. I fell in love with the look and have seen so many fabulous variations made by lots of different artists. I had been wanting to make a new keepsake box and want to thank Alice for giving me the inspiration for a new mosaic, and something to do with my scraps.

Back from vacation and new snails

My in-laws were here for a week and wanted us to tour North Alabama and Southern Tennessee so I have not been around much. I did complete a request to make another Frankensnail's monster.

Here are a couple more new ones that have not been listed yet. They will be listed in my etsy shop this week.

I have missed everyone so much and I'm glad to be getting back to a non-traveling schedule.

Maeve the pixie snail racer

Maeve is a very competitive little pixie. Her favorite hobby is snail racing. It is not the prizes that interest her but the adrenaline rush of leaving those who try to beat her in the wake of her snail's slime.
