Brandi on Ice!

Crystals and ice are the setting for this wee poinsetta fae. Brandi on ice, I thought it sounded like a great name! Hope you think so too.
Happy Holidays!

Still hard at work-well, sort of...

Hi everyone-

I'm back! Still trying to get into the swing of studio work- between appointments and yard work. And now I have to have knee surgery again, too! Never ends. Anyway, I don't let that stuff get me down, I just keep plugging away.

Here is my latest offering on Ebay, Sheylen. Hope you enjoy seeing her! She took me such a long time to finish!!

Back to work, I guess!

After so much time away it's been hard to get back into the swing of things here! I'm doing my best though- and this week I have Christel here with me. She is a shy Forest waif, and she is just coming out of her little moss covered house. It is so fun to adapt common items into fantasy! You never know what you will come up with.

Back in a few days,

Home from my excursion West!

Back again! I am happy to be home but had a simply wonderful time visiting California. I taught a week long seminar in Napa Valley- was so much fun! The gals worked hard and everyone had a fairy mostly finished by class end. Then, off to visit other parts farther south-such fun traveling! Here is a photo of a sunset I was lucky enough to catch while in the Mexican Riviera.

Also, while there I completed a sculpt I call Korbella, after the Korbel Winery we visited in Napa Valley. Here is a photo of Korbella! She is currently listed on ebay.

Thanks for stopping by!

Trying to keep busy in the studio...

But yet there is so many other things to get done also, isn't there!! and Fall is right around the corner, which means snow shoveling can't be too far behind! YIKES! Well, no sense in rushing the seasons, I will enjoy the fall weather because this is my absolute favorite time of year.
This next month I will be off to California, the Napa Valley area, to teach a week long seminar there on sculpting and finish details. Really looking forward to that.
If you are interested in having a class in your area, just send me an email and I will see if it can be arranged.
This week I did a different style fairy- seated on a base that can be illuminated. This is Arica.
Hope you enjoy seeing her! Deb

Meet Little Elkie!

This is Elkie, A Flower Fairy, #5 in the series. I had a blast creating this little imp! She has perky pigtails, and I used soft viscose for her bangs so they would hug her darling little imp face just like I hoped they would.

I used these wings for a silk wing tutorial I created, as soon as I get on the ball, I will post that too. Summer just has a way of taking up alot of our time, doesn't it! Anyway, hope you all are doing well, and enjoy your days!

The Monarch Butterfly

Perhaps it's the summer season that prompted this work, or maybe just the draw of the elusive butterfly...sit quietly and they will light upon your shoulder, try to catch one and you'll be disappointed for sure!
This is Monarch- and she is my current listing on ebay. I hope you enjoy her!

The latest offering on ebay!


Well, I've been gone a lot lately again- but I have been home just long enough to get this lovely sweet fae ready to list on ebay this week, Aurelia. She is seated on the edge of an antique dish that I have transformed into a bubble bath for her. This is the first piece like this I have ever done- and it was a lot of fun to create!

Leaving to go out of town again tomorrow- but I will catch up again later next week! Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Hugs, Deb

My artwork is the Feature article in May Doll Reader!

Hello! Well, this was exciting! I had an article come out in the May issue of Doll Reader, and I am so excited to see one of my dolls, Semone, featured on the cover! Just had to share this with you. There is a link below to the scanned pages. If you open that link and click on the photo, it should enlarge enough for you to read it. Pretty happy about this, I won't lie to you! ;) I've been featured in articles before but never made the cover. Happy Girl!

This is Laurel Rae, and she is doing her best to balance on a bent cherry blossom branch. Sweet cheeks! I used viscose for her hair this time, usually I don't use viscose but the blond fly away look just seemed perfect for this little one.
Hope you enjoy seeing this piece! The link to the auction and additional photos is off to the left.

Back to Winter, AGAIN!

Well, even though April is right around the corner, our whole world here is covered once again, in snow!! This morning the view out the window looked like a well shaken snow globe! I could hardly see across the street. But, the good news is after shoveling, the walks and driveway are clear again. At least at this time of year it melts quickly. There is hope for us here yet!

Working on a new piece for this week--she's spring-y, at least! ;)

A little girl cannot resist playing dress-up!

This week I had a fun project. This is Leni Jo (I took the name from a Debbie McComber book I'm reading right now, "Between Friends") and she is admiring herself in her mirror! Can't you just picture this scene in a little girl's bedroom? I know my granddaughter Ella LOVES to wear all these fun costumes.

Have a good weekend- I'll be back soon!

WELL, I CANNOT BELIEVE I haven't been here in months!

What a terrible blogger I am!! I can't believe I haven't posted here since November. I must vow to be more attentive to my blogging.

I have been working- doing as much as my little fingers can do- and mostly it's enjoyable! This week I did a fairy in an interesting pose, a crouching fairy, and I named her Jeisa. I am really pleased with how she turned out. Hope you enjoy seeing her too!

I am working on updating my website too- and I have a major magazine article coming out in May! I will let you know more when the time gets closer. Don't want to tell all of my surprises!
