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.

Bows, Headbands, Hats and Totes


These are just a few of the new items that I have been 
creating for my Etsy Shop.


There is a tiny Fawn in the center of this brown and pink bow. She is wearing a flower and looking so sweet. The bow measures approximately 4.5 inches wide by 3 inches tall and is detachable from the headband by a ribbon covered alligator clip. The headband is soft and stretchy which makes it very comfortable to wear.

Looking for something elegant.  This pretty flower of tulle and lace is attached to a soft cream colored headband. The little pink flower that adorns the center has a beautiful pearl button which gives it a glamourous appeal. The flower detaches from the headband by a ribbon lined alligator clip so it can be worn separately.



~*~*~*~*~*~

Such a pretty little hat would look adorable for that first photo shoot. The flower is almost as big as this pretty little crocheted knit hat. The flower has been embellished with a beautiful pink jewel and has a ribbon covered alligator clip that can be removed from the hat and used as a hair clip.



~*~*~*~*~*~
What little girl wouldn't love having this little tote bag. A pink and blue flower overlooks this happy little bear appliqu├ęd tote. What a cute mini purse this is, It's perfect for carrying around all those little items. This tote measures 5" long by 4" wide.



Stop by my shop and see what else is new.

Trina's Clay Creations



I am so proud of my Daughter's polymer clay creations.


This is just one of her AWESOME CAKE TOPPERS that she has created.  Her work is amazing.   Take a moment to visit her shop at:  http://www.etsy.com/shop/trinasclaycreations



  

From the Artist:
This little cake topper was such fun to create!  I made a pumpkin carriage in orange and silver, adding vines, leaves and a darling oval door with a round window.  The two mice are sitting in the grass in front of the carriage, each holding a glass of wine and toasting each other.  She's dressed in red, he's in blue and both have great big eyes, making theirfaces so darling.  The topper is approximately 2" tall and sits on a 2 1/2" base.  Made as a custom order for an awesome customer of mine, I will be listing it in my Etsy shop (Trina's Clay Creations) as an example of a topper I can customize as a special gift and/or cake topper.

Sandy's Bangles and Bows


I am pleased to announce the opening of my new shop on Etsy. 


I have always loved seeing little girls wearing pretty bows and headbands ~ It doesn't matter if they are in their play clothes or all dressed up for a special occasion, a bow just seems to give that outfit an extra pizzaz.

As most of you know, I love working with polymer clay.  I thought it would be fun to incorporate it into some of my creations. 



I Love the color of this Daisy ~ I created a polymer clay center to accent it, which has been stamped with one of my favorite stamps. Then I gave it a slight brushing with Gold Pearl ~ X paint. I chose a headband that is the same orange color as the flower to complete the design.

~*~*~*~*~*~


 There a little puppy peeking out of the silk flower on this bright red headband. The puppy was created out of polymer clay and has glass beads for his bright little eyes. A chiffon bow with a crystal center decorates this already darling headband, a delight for any little girl.


~*~*~*~*~*~


I always loved Ladybugs ~ so cute with their polka dot wings. This Ladybug found the perfect home nestled into a black and white Gingham bow. The headband is very soft and stretchy and will not leave marks on your little one's head. Great for everyday wear or for special occasions.



~*~*~*~*~*~


Burlap, yoyo bow and a button, such a delightful combination. This brown and cream colored bow with green and orange accents measures approximately four inches in diameter and has an alligator clip attached to the back. 
~*~*~*~*~*~




This hair bow has a vintage appeal. The muted colors and the touch of lace add to the beauty of this bow.  It is four inches wide has been embellished with a beautiful golden heart. An alligator clip is attached to the back of the bow.
~*~*~*~*~*~


A deep brown crocheted headband is adorned with a plethora of beautiful earth tone colors. The white rose which is accented by a black and gold button is centered amidst the colors making this headband quite beautiful. The bow measures approximately 5" wide by 3" deep.


~*~*~*~*~*~
I do hope you will visit my new shop ~ I am adding new bows and headbands every day and plan on adding a lot more polymer clay accents.
