Item got here when expected and was packaged in such a way I felt like I was opening a gift! It had a cute ribbon tied around it, along with a personalized note! Will definitely buy again from this seller!

About

I feel a great sense of pride and accomplishment when a friend, a family member or a customer shows an appreciation for one of my creations.

I have enjoyed creating something beautiful that did not previously exist, since I was very young. When a friend told me about Etsy, I immediately saw it as a possible outlet for the products generated by my hobbies. So, several years ago I decided to open my shop on Etsy.

Now that I am retired, I have time to spend working on my hobbies. I love capturing the beauty of color and design and enjoy the great feeling of accomplishment when I finish one of my projects using many different materials, whether it is using paints, fabrics, yarns or silk flowers. I find being able to create a thing of beauty very enjoyable and relaxing and feel a great sense of pride and accomplishment when someone shows an appreciation for one of my creations.

One of the hobbies I enjoy is the painting of landscapes. When I paint I get enjoyment from combining the different vibrant colors of the acrylic paints I use. My paintings are originals of the beautiful landscapes that I have seen during my travels in the states of New Mexico and Texas. I feel that I have captured the true beauty of nature in each of my paintings.

Another one of my hobbies is weaving with natural and acrylic yarns. I use yarn, feathers, beads and wood or metal rings to weave Indian Shields. These Indian Shields were inspired by the different diverse cultures I have witnessed while living and traveling in Mexico and New Mexico.

I developed the art of flower arranging as a result of having the privilege of making flower arrangements for my daughter's wedding, several years ago. Since that time, I have made many different items using silk flowers and re-purposed baskets and pots. I combine different kinds of flowers to make beautiful bouquets, center pieces and corsages. I believe each finished piece portrays the beauty of nature and each gives an old basket or a old pot an opportunity to show off its new found beauty.

Thank you very much for visiting my shop. Where you will find hand crafted gifts and home decor for you, your family, your friends and clothes for your cuddly furry friends. I hope you will appreciate one of my artistic pieces by finding a place for it in your home or by sharing one as a gift for a friend or a loved one, furry or otherwise.

    Owner, Designer, Creator And Photographer

    I am a retired school teacher living with my husband and my two puppies, aka my models. We live in Round Rock, a suburb of Austin, Texas. My "Studio" is a walk-in-closet in which I have a painting station, a sewing station and a creating station.

  • "Shy One"

    Aka My Model

    Even though this little puppy is kind of shy, she wants to make sure I take her best side in her best outfit. She loves to be seen in her Red and White Lace dress. It is just perfect to wear to go for a short stroll in the back yard.

  • "Actress"

    Aka My Model

    This puppy loves to pose for her photo when she is modeling a new outfit. "I am so cute in Pink and White Polka Dots."
