I found another wonderful doll video today.........these are so creative.  I would love to make one of some of my characters.......this one is kind of sad but it is so cool.  It shows how human these little creatures we make can be.  I love the voodoo them too.

Fall Art Doll Quarterly..........My Santos Doll

My Santos doll made it into the new Art Doll Quarterly from Stampington and Company's family of magazines. This is my first time being published so I am psyched. They do a fantastic job and I am honored to be included.
 It hits stands Aug. 1,  and is their Halloween issue.  It is so great you will want to buy a bunch and share.  There are so many wonderful artists in this issue, Scott Smith, E. J. Taylor, Edgar Shrum,  Bill Nelson and many others.  It is hard to put down, inspiration overload.

Saturday evening spent looking for Etsy apps...........

Well I have spent the last couple of hours looking for Etsy apps.  There seems to be a lot out there so I thought I would share what I have found.  Maybe someone else will find these to be helpful too.
This is a blog I ran across that has several listed and they all look like they would be an asset to any Etsy seller.
5 Must Have Etsy Apps, they mention Statsy and Etsy on Sale, mailchimp and Shoeboxed.  I have not used any of these yet as I have just found them.  There seems to be tons of help out there and it never occurred to me for some reason.  I suppose since I spend most of my time trying to play in the mud or covered in paint  that I just wasn't paying attention.  I sold on Ebay for years and new all the latest gadgets so I suppose that I am just not putting in the time to my Etsy shop that I put into Ebay years ago.
 I will do my best to rectify that since Ebay has lost its sparkle for me.
I will try to add things to this post as I find them and happy selling.

Just added these babies to my Etsy shop....
they are so funny.  They have a loop at the top so they are meant to hang from a Halloween tree but the bodies are wire so they can be gently posed and sat around as these are.  They each have tons of personality and they would add a bit of Halloween spooky, creepy fun to your day.

Link to my shop.....Cumberland Falls 

Hope y'all enjoy.  I am off to work on
some Creative Paper Clay figures that I have had lying around for a week or so.
Listening to Darius Rucker and Wagon Wheel.  I love that song, but I love his voice no matter what he is singing.

Good Morning America..........

I was reading thru my emails and found a great
idea on what to do with that driftwood piling up for those of you who collect it.  My husband has piles so this is a fantastic way to display
the one of a kind pieces.

New Art Inspiration

Was browsing around the net and found a great sight for ATCs at Illustrated ATCs and some wonderful information on how to create great art projects of all kinds.  Here is a link to Art Trader Magazine ....................I thought they had some very creative things on there too.  If I had all day to browse the internet I would be full of ideas but of course no work to show.  I am posting a pic of my latest creations.  Some Halloween primitive clay dolls for you to look at.
