Hello and Welcome to my Blog ~ I love art of all kinds. Two of my favorites are polymer clay and paper art. I have shops on Etsy that feature both of my passions. I also love writing my blog and finding artists that have a passion for their craft and feature them. I hope your day is filled with sunshine, laughter and loads of creativity.

An Etsy Shop

For all of you that want to have your creations shown to a wide audience and some sales under your belt, Etsy is the way to go. I started my Etsy Shop because my daughter was such a wonderful clay artist and she hesitated on getting one. Well, the hesitation was gone once she saw my shop up and running and she is having a ball with it. Her shop is delightful. She specializes in cake toppers, but she has so many other wonderful items from boxes to vases. This is a picture of a special order cake topper she created for a grooms cake. She was given a picture of the items and she duplicated them in her own artistic way. The Bride to be was ecstatic over them.

Even though she is in Michigan and I am in Texas, we have been having so much fun together  We joined Polymer Clay Central on the same day and have had loads of visitors to our blogs and Etsy Shops.  This picture was taken in Michigan when I was visiting there.

An Etsy Shop is easy to open and the cost factor is minimal. Other venues have you pay a monthly fee, but Etsy makes 20 cents an item and a small percentage of the sale. It sounds like I'm an advertisement for Etsy and I guess I am in a way, but its fun and exciting to see your creations being displayed with many talented artisans. This is one of my masked faces. As you can tell by my blog, I love purple. Not all my masks are purple though as you can see when you visit my Etsy Shop at: http://www.etsy.com/shop/mstp
