Brand spanking new!



I managed to finish several projects recently and list them on Etsy and Ebay despite waking up with an incredibly painful neck. Don't you just hate it when you sleep wrong?!

Here's a little sample of my new pendants. Some horsey and some Halloween.
One of the biggest tips on Etsy for selling your work is to have great photos. My photos always seem a bit on the blah side so I decided to photograph this new batch out in the garden.





Also finally finished my EHAG July Challenge piece (better late than never, right?). Our theme was The Brothers Grimm. I had this witch house from Hansel and Gretel started over a year ago but just wasn't feeling it. I switched the colors around and added some more candy and 2 days of work and am now very happy with the way it turned out!

When you get the chance pop over to the EHAG blog. Lucky me - I'm the newest spotlight artist!
