Jack and little Lulu ETSY SHOP open!

My Etsy shop, "Jack and Little Lulu" is finally open! After years of friends and family telling me I should sell the things I make, I finally came up with something that I enjoying making repetitively and can make them reasonably priced, not to mention that i think they are really adorable. I sold 12 of them before i even got my etsy shop going. I am posting one a day and I am continually make more as I go. So keep my shop in mind when you are looking for a unique gift!

Faerie Tea Pot

Since my mother loves Faeries to the point that she named her home "Faerie Glen," I made her a decorative tea pot in her favorite theme.... I had a really fun time painting and collaging the tea pot and oh the glitter!

Dolls for Big Girls with Jan Harris

This photo shows Ms June Daley and I working on our Dolls...  June's doll is on the left. The beginning stages of them after we cooked their heads..  and i will metion now how gigantic my doll's head is...  Look to the toaster oven photo below to see the difference between my dolls head (the largest) and everyone elses. How did that happen?... i wonder and I know the culprit to blame is friend Lorraine Garcia who keep telling me that my head was too small and i should make it bigger. No doubt i was sitting with the girls who made large dolls but there is no excuse that mine turned out to be the biggest of all. I love my doll but you can't miss her!
Although this class was suppose to be taught by my favorite Judy Wise, Jan gracefully filled in for her and did a lovely job! I never knew how much fun making dolls could be! I just love how mine turned out with all her little quirks and all.

Feminine Icon with Katie Kendrick

I love how Katie Kendrick paints her faces and it was a real treat to watch and learn from her!

Gridlock Class with Lisa Kraus

The Gridlock class was also one of my favorite classes. I loved the idea of creating different patchworks of art on wood. I loved hammering nails and other things into the peice and then covering with beeswax. Very cool!

Perching Pixies Class from ART & SOUL

The first class I took at the Art & Soul Retreat in Las Vegas was Perching Pixies with Stephanie Rubiano. This was a great class and learned a lot of different cool techniques...  the most challenging? the jewlery's saw! Here are 2 that i finished in class of my son, Jack.
