Uaine the elf snail

The green elf snail is very rare and hard to spot in the deep woods of ColtPixy. It is very mischievous and often plays tricks on those who venture into its territory.

The Gamer

Most of us know a guy like this. A video game junkie. Hey believe it or not it is a cheaper hobby than golf.

My snail world is growing even larger. There are several more on my work table in various stages of completion.

Amy the Crocheter

This weekend I picked up a little notebook that will fit in my purse. So far in it is only snail ideas. Several pages of them in small print. Need less to say, if you don't see me around much on facebook or plurk it is because I am parked at my clay table.

Degas Escargot

Edgar Degas is one of my favorite artists. So when it came to naming my latest snail I chose to name it after him. Since both are painters...

The inspiration for my Valentine snail was old Warner Bros cartoons. As a kid they were always my favorite.
