As many of you know, EBAY is cuurently instituting some policy and fee changes. Some will be effective this month and others will be implemented in May. As a result, many sellers are boycotting Ebay from February 18th to the 25th. As a matter of principle, and to fully support those who will be most affected, I have decided to abide by the strike. Call it the liberal in me :) (sorry Daddy!). Currently, I am very pleased with my experiences on Ebay. I have been selling my wares on Ebay on and off since 1999 and I, like many artists I know, have decided to take it all as it comes and hope everything will work out to a satisfactory conclusion. However, in the event that the Ebay selling environment becomes too difficult to navigate, I shall sell exclusively on ETSY. I am currently looking into other auction sites on the web, so in the unlikely event that I do leave Ebay, I will be certain to keep all of you up to date about where I land. SO, if you are interested in joining my mailing list now would be a great time to do so :)!

So with the week off from EBAY, I have been sculpting away! I don't know if it has been the warm weather, or the renewed promise of Spring, but I seem to be feeling very inspired and creative these last few days!
Email me with questions about these pieces!

Okay, so next to Halloween, St. Patrick's Day is my favorite holiday! Some people are big Christmas junkies. My mother in law used to put up (no lie) 7 Christmas trees. She starts decorating feverishly in September I think. Not me, I am just not that committed I guess... Of course, I am an Irish girl through and through, and any holiday that involves U2 and warm Guinness, well I am all over that holiday!
So, long story short, I thought to myself why not combine my two favorite holidays :)!

The talented group of HA31 and UHAT are promoting a new holiday event:)! I have been sketching like crazy and I was thinking about scanning in those drawings, BUT rather than spoil the surprise, I will just leave you with a teaser!
Envision "Bunnies Gone Bad"~ blood sucking sabertoothed rabbits with claws and the Easter Mummy!
I am so excited, I just love new challenges! Especially DARK ones! Speaking of DARK...
I also wanted to give everyone a heads up about the new MRSBO challenge coming up in MAY! Dark themed Circus Orphans.... doesn't that sound like fun! I can't wait to see what our talented group of artist come up with!

Oh my goodness! Time seems to be passing at a incredible clip! It seems like it was just Christmas time and here it is already February 7th... Anyway, I am almost finished with a very cool skelly and you know how much I love skellys :)! He has a St. Paddy's Day theme as you can see, complete with shamrocks and a shillealegh. I think I am going to have hime holding green carnations as well! He should be complete and ready for listing on ebay this weekend. Keep and eye out!
HA31 and UHAT, both Ebay artist groups are sponsoring an EASTERWEEN theme. Listing, I believe, has been scheduled for March 1st. I have lots of spooky, ghoulish ideas rolling around in my head! I just love dark themes, they are so much fun! I can't wait to post some of my new ideas!
Finally, MRSBO, my very talented and fun group of doll artisan friends, is planning a new theme for May. Stay tuned for what promises to be a delicious art challenge.
