A bit of a morsel....

To whet your appetite, my Dark Princess is a doorprize for this coming SpookyTimeJingles update, with her soulful eyes...

Her full crepe collar frames her face perfectly, you can almost see one of the 2 tiny
buttons I painted on her front bodice, peeking out from under the collar and I also painted an opened scalloped lace sash beneath it.

this picture shows the back detail with painted buttons.

I have to tell y'all about this:
I recieved one of the most lovely emails from a regular customer of mine, who bought my Marley. I wish I could post it all here but I will not embarrass her.
I will say that the response I got from her when she opened the package with Marley in it was absolutely PRICELESS!!!
She is one of the most endearingly funny and articulated person I have ever had the pleasure of " knowing", she makes me laugh and warms my heart...
Many Thanks,Dana!!!

Here kitty kitty...

This teeny tiny kitty is part of my next Imp, a Witch, she will be a hanging ornie.
I just thought that whiskers was too cute standing there by himself, that I had to show y'all!!

See how teeny he is,I see that his leg needs a bit of adjusting too.

This kinda kitty is the best kind, although I do love the live bitty kittys!!

Bye bye little buddy!!....

Another little Imp done and ready to go! This is " Snowman Imp and Hootie "

A doodle and a base

a rough shaped base and rolled out clay

put together and a figure emerges...actually this is already dried a little and being sanded.

Not quite right, the neck needs to be adjusted at more of an angle.

All that's needed is paint and embellishments.
Thank you Pattee!!!!

No, this ain’t no time for saints,
But plenty “o” time for haints !
