“Big Nap” Decorative Dish for Autumn

How’s a nice round napping ginger kitty for autumn, napping on a bright blue bed like the clear blue skies of September? Jelly Bean’s roundness is a little exaggerated but it really was a big nap. Another one of the feline shapes I love. “Big Nap” decorative dishes are based on one of my brush […]

New Nature-themed Cabochon Pendants from the Panhandle Trail

Last year’s flower show of pendants from the Panhandle Trail were a hit, so I made more for this year. But I could also picture other elements of nature, like the red-tailed hawks that constantly soar above against the blue sky, and the moon from my painting “Sycamore Moon”. I purchased a few bags of […]

Flowers and Butterflies Cabochon Pendants, Two for $25.00

One of the things that’s always drawn me out into nature is the free flower show each year from the first thaw to the last frost. It’s happening out there right now with the floor of the woods covered with spring ephemerals all blooming in their turn. I already see the summer wildflowers putting up […]

Flowery Decorative Wooden Trays

Continuing the ideas for Mother’s Day gifts, these two decorative trays covered with flowers are a popular gift. Decorated with autumn wildflower photos from the Panhandle Trail, I sold out twice and decided to keep new ones in stock. The larger tray is 10 x 14 and the photo is “Woodland Sunflowers”. The smaller tray […]

Stylish Recycling, “Tea for Tulips” Vintage Cigar Box Keepsake

These cigar boxes are the old-style cardboard type, the ones we probably all grew up with around the house, holding photos and hardware and handkerchiefs. As you would expect these boxes are gently worn, in varying states of wear and tear, written on, watermarked, with holes from thumbtacks and dinged up corners and warped lids, […]

Colorful Kitties Feline Votive

This votive is made with a repurposed pickle jar. I etched the inside, not sure what design I’d use on the outside, but certain I’d add color and pattern to all the workings in the glass. At first I thought it would be flowers, but then I remembered this colorful design that I’d been intending […]

Feline Decorative Dishes and Coasters in Spring Colors

Some variations on a theme, 6″ plates and 4″ coasters with the image stamped into the surface then painted and glazed in various ways, using “Bath” and “Three Cats Looking”. Because they are handmade and shaping, stamping, glazing and drying changes their dimensions, they are not exactly uniform in size, shape or thickness, but that […]

A Few New Ideas

This weekend’s crafty experiments were pretty disappointing, but cute—accessory bags, below, and refrigerator magnets, above. The experiment with diluting the Armour glass etch was a total flop, so I have no new votives as I had hoped. Yes, it was all a little disappointing, but nothing ventured, nothing gained as they say. I’ll just have […]
