Adventures in Pompom Land!

I was very surprised when I received a total unexpected package in the mail a few days before Christmas from my lovely editor, Beth Sweet, from Lark Crafts. I was stunned to open it to find an advance copy of my book, Adventures in Pompom Land! Oh my goodness it looks so cute! Breathlessly, I eagerly turned each page to view the beautiful pictures. I am so thrilled with how it turned out! To have a dream realized is such an amazing feeling! I thank all of my wonderful friends and family that helped along the way. And also to you, dear reader and customers for all the loyal support! The book is already on and is available for pre-order as the book is not available until March. It's only $12.10 now.:)

Sweet Inspiration ~Still sweet and lovely after all these long years...

We were once dear friends...we played together everyday and my heart was filled with joy...where have you gone old friend? Do you ever think of me as I think often of you?

Hello! Wow, has it really been that long since my last post?! Time has sure flown by these past few months! I have been so busy with working, going to school, and working on the book that I have hardly had time to work on creating some little pompom animals. I have done a few custom orders and of course the animals to be featured in the book but my etsy shop has been bare as old mother's cupboard! So this past weekend I managed to make a few! I just love how the pink circus elephant turned out! Perfect for celebrating a special birthday! The little puppy turned out pretty cute too!;)

My latest find!

I was so thrilled when I recently won this on ebay last month! It is a very rare Disney's Alice In Wonderland Make-Up Kit made by Hassenfeld Brothers in 1951. (Hassenfeld Bros. would later be known as Hasbro today). This piece is in wonderful condition. The perfume has evaporated long ago but the little bar of soap and talcum powder are still untouched!

I can't imagine a little girl being able to resist playing with all of the wonderful little goodies in this set. It's kind of amazing that this set has remained intact in this condition for all these years! I really love antique vintage Disneyana and will have to share all of my other latest acquistions with you!

Making some Sew Cute cuties!

I finally had some time to make a couple of cuties the other day. I've been so busy with going back to school and family that I didn't have the time to work in my studio much for the past six months. But I did manage to make these little guys the other day!

New little Christmas Squirrels

I guess I should have made these little squirrels more fall themed but I couldn't help myself. I had picked up these three beautiful little mercury glass Christmas ornaments earlier in the year and was just dying to use them! I have been very busy creating this weekend and hope to get more cuties in my etsy shop as soon as possible!
