Sweet Silly Snowball Ornaments!!!

Yep! I've actually MADE SOMETHING!!! Yaaaaay!
I pulled out the Creative Paperclay and
had so much fun making these sweeties!

I simply rolled the clay out like biscuit dough and
wrapped the circle around a styrofoam ball.
A little water is involved to make things stick too.
I added a nose, some eyes and used black beads for the pupils
then gave each of them a goofy expression.

They have to dry overnight, then each is hand painted.
I made the silver lame' Santa type hat but purchased
the two teeny black hats at Hob Lob.
I had to adorn the black hats too. Each got a silver lame' hat band
and the sweetest rhinestone button that looks like a snowflake.

I'm so pleased with how they turned out!
The top two in the photo below are sold but there's one more
up for grabs in my Etsy shop ~ take a peek if you're interested!
The are approximately the size of tennis balls and very light weight.

In other news, I'm still going through so, so much of my studio hoard.
I've been collecting wonderful old things for years and years but
it's just time to let some of these treasures go and make someone else happy!
This is a small fraction of what's been added lately to

It kinda feels good to let things go.
Yes, I just said that.
Miracles still do happen!!!

I hope you are doing so very good and
simply had to share my burst of creativity with you!

hugs and love,

Welcome Autumn, I've missed you so!

It seems we blink and POOF! Summer is gone and fall has arrived!
The years are passing too quickly for my taste but
I've heard that as you get older, this is just how it is.

I love it when the shadows start getting longer in the afternoon and
when the sky is that amazing, vibrant blue!

I have many posts on my blog praising the fall of the year because
so many wonderful things have happened in my life at this time of year.

I wanted to share some of my most favorite images with you too!

These last two photos are from when we visited my parents a few years ago.
They live in the North Georgia mountains in Hiawassee, Georgia.

The photograph below was taken standing on their deck...THEIR DECK!'s so beautiful there in the fall!!!

This one was taken during that visit as the mountains.
The colors were so beautiful!!!

Our precious grandson turned FOUR this past month!!!
I mean it about the time y'all, it's flying by WAAAY too fast!
Here a just a few photos from his party,
he had such a wonderful day!

Goodness gracious!!! Look at how big they both are!!!
Sweet babies...

I just finished up a wholesale order for a dear friend who
will be selling at The Country Living Fair in a few weeks in Atlanta!!!

She ordered a few lavender sachets and I found the most beautiful graphics
to print onto fabric for her! The order is complete and on it's way to her...
