Announcement   I love custom orders. So if you would like a special gift, just message me. I can do memory pieces in either mosaic or felted wool. For example, I did a gazing ball from a father's bowling ball with some pieces of Mom's dishes and earrings in the design. A great way to remember them. I have made stuffed animals from family members clothes. A special young man passed away and I made an A for them with Iron Man pieces in it and his favorite colors. Or it can be something fun like a window with your favorite flowers or your pet. Let your imagination and mine work together for that special piece.

I am creating a wedding piece for a special couple. The top 3 panes will be mosaiced in stained glass in their wedding colors & their initials. The 3 bottom panes will be open for writing messages & 3 hooks for hanging keys, leashes, or whatever.
A new cat under construction. Her name is Daisy, in honor of my neighbor cat who looks very much like her. She will be listed later this week. Today has been a cat and Christmas ornament day. I finished another cat picture frame to be listed soon.
Working on a new gazing ball. Did you know that the gazing balls begin life as bowling balls? I am sitting outside at the Pineville Fall Fest creating and soaking up the sun.

About

Inspired by Nature, Saving Nature through upcycling.

My journey into creating and selling my art began when a friend gave me her Mosaic tools because she decided she did not like Mosaics but she thought I would. 6 months later, I took a class and an obsession was born. I began to create more and more mosaic art pieces and ran out of people to give them to. My friend encouraged me to start selling my art and in May, 2014, I had my first sale at a craft sale. For the next 6 months, I exhibited at 7 craft fairs. In December, 2014, I decided it was time to open my Etsy shop. I look for supplies and bases at thrift shops, yard sales, estate sales, and in the trash to use to make my mosaics. I take these "treasures" and upcycle them into fun and whimsical art pieces. I also took classes in Knitting, Crocheting, Felting, Needle Felting, and Wet Felting. These skills are also working their way into my pieces. I make mosaic bird baths, bird houses, trays, animal sculptures, etc. After my fiber classes, I am creating Felted Wool Purses and scarves. Flower pins that are rug hooked using repurposed wool skirts and pants. My sweet and supportive husband cringes at what my next class and obsession will be. As my mother put it, I am adding "tools" to my tool belt. I hope you enjoy my creations and benefit from my many interests and obsessions!

I try to carry my mantra of reduce, reuse, repurpose into all areas of my business from finding most of my supplies at yard sales, thrift shops, and sometimes in my neighbor's curb side castoffs to shipping of my products. I reuse boxes and shipping materials from items that have been shipped to me in my Flower Floozy business and in my family's other business, Molly Maid. So, if your order arrives in a box with cleaning supply pictures on the side, I hope you will understand that I am trying to save the planet one box at a time. :) Thanks for coming by my shop.
