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.

Dale Chihuly received many awards.  After receiving the Fulbright Fellowship award, he went to work at The Venini Glass Factory in Venice.  Renowned for his work, his creations are included in over two hundred museum collections around the world.   

When I was visiting the Dallas Arboritum with my Son and Grandson, I was lucky enough to capture these beautiful photographs of his creations.

Fairies Love to Live in Pretty Houses.

 I sold my Southwestern Fairy Door Today

This isn't your typical fairy door.  It's a house front with a Southwestern Flair.  The little fairy that lives here has long black hair swept up in a bouquet of cactus flowers and because her wings are sprinkled with fairy dust, the ever constant sun makes them glitter even more.

Her house is approximately 2.75" tall by 3.50" wide and made entirely out of polymer clay.


My Newest Fairy Door

Fairies must love the door they are about to enter and they are known to love the color purple.  This is such a pretty little doorway with the Lavender roses trailing all around it.  Little birds are bound to love the little birdbath and the doormat is sure to attract a little fairy.

Ines Fonseca's Little Creatures

Ines Fonseca
Ines is from Portugal and currently lives in Scotland.  She started playing with polymer clay sixteen years ago and it became her favorite hobby. 

The little Creatures are handmade creations, carefully crafted and designed. They reflect the pleasure she has in nature and in simple things.

This birdhouse magnet is part of the Birdhouse Magnets Series. It will be the perfect gift to brighten up a message board or your fridge.

Camellia is often found nibbling succulent leaves from the tallest trees in the savannah. She will be enchanted to be part of your daily outfit, or given as a special gift.

This brooch is a unique creation, designed and crafted by me.  

Lola is a hot water fish who likes to meander through seaweeds in search of pretty seashells. She will be the perfect accessory for a summer promenade. 

The fish is made of delicate scales made with several shades of blue polymer clay and carefully placed to resemble fish scales. This is a unique brooch as no molds were used .
