Time for Holiday Shopping for Nature & Wildlife Inspirations

I’d love for my art and gifts to be a part of your holiday giving! This post will be the first feature of gift items, and I guarantee there will be a second in a week or so as I restock sold items and produce entirely new items such as tiles, placemats, decorative wall and […]

Decorative Wooden Trays With Autumn Wildflowers

Just a few decorative trays with autumn wildflower photos from the Panhandle Trail help to celebrate autumn. The larger tray is 10 x 14 and the smaller tray is 8 x 12, and made of lightweight unfinished wood. I paint the outside and inside, then adhere a print of the image on my high quality […]

Ginger Tabbies on Tiles

More feline things that are orange. And though these two designs were based on a black tabby and a torbie, part of the fun of being an artist is I can make their stripes any color I want! I love my tiles with my art and photos transferred to the surface, but I also like […]

Autumn Wildflower Votives Decorated for the Season

Arranging my display of votives here I kept looking at four with autumn wildflowers that I felt needed a little extra something. I pictured some burlap ribbon in autumn colors, some flower and leaf-shapd buttons and novelties and then some raffia too, and went to town with decorations. I decorated the top edge of them […]

New Flower and Butterfly Votives

Last year when I prepared for my Panhandle Trail exhibit I really wanted to try out my idea for votives made from recycled pickle and condiment jars. The first idea was to handpaint them with designs using alcohol inks, but I knew I wanted a print of my image on there. I did not attempt […]

“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 […]

Woodland Sunflowers Welcome September, a Votive and More

“Woodland Sunflowers” is different from all my other votives, and it’s because of an idea I had long before I began making these. This glass votive is etched inside by hand and finished with a handpainted design of woodland sunflowers based on one of my photos. It’s made from a repurposed glass roasted red pepper […]

Butterflies and Wildflowers for Summer

I didn’t intend to make a set of these two, but that’s what happened! Together they make a nice accent for someone who loves butterflies and wants more of them in their home. This would also make a nice gift set too! A Special Discount When You Purchase Both Buy both the votive and keepsake […]

A Selection of New Feline Votives

I let my seed lights swag across the photo and it almost looks like there’s a crack in something, but it’s really just an artsy effect. The last batch I made in May have a few different designs and styles from the ones before and with smaller jars too, and all in summery colors. They […]

Feline Vintage Cigar Box Keepsakes

I had another stash of vintage cigar boxes in reserve and decided it was time to make some new keepsakes from them. Because I was preparing for Hearts and Paws last weekend, the first group of keepsakes were all feline designs and those are the ones I feature here. I’m working on the flower designs […]
