I'm happy to introduce a sweet little bear that has captured my heart. He is created from synthetic fur and has lots of detail. I hope you enjoy seeing him as much as I enjoyed creating him!

He is on ebay now!

I'm finishing up....

A sweet little bear... I found this beautiful faux fur that is grey with white tips and I just had to use it for a realistic miniature bear. I just love how he is turning out! I've stuffed him a little less to allow his armature to hold more poses and is it ever fun to pose him. My favorite pose at the moment is him curled up sleeping... I'm really looking forward to his photo shoot!

~ Beau Beau ~ miniature chihuahua puppy and his papasan chair ~on ebay

Please let me introduce Beau Beau ~ my newest miniature soft sculpture. Beau Beau is a chihuahua puppy who has his own specially designed & created papasan chair. For all his details and many more photos, please visit his auction at

This was a fun project as my husband helped me with creating the chair. As well as being a piece of art on its own, it has some of our local history in it. The telegraph wire used for the frame is a remnant of the telegraph line put in through our area in 1866 as part of the Collins Overland Telegraph and there are still some areas where you can find parts of it. My husband found a length of this wire while out hiking – it is very sturdy and is perfect for this kind of creation.

I hope you enjoyed seeing him! I love to get feedback on my creations, so please feel free to comment :o))

~ Benjamin ~ ooak baby bunny with his carrot bed

I hope this creation brings you a smile! I think I have spring on my mind.... but still looking out on a white landscape.

Benjamin was so fun to create and I'm so excited to share him with you! He is created from faux fur and has wire armature so he is very fun to pose. He also has open/close eyelids - he's so sweet as a sleepy bunny.

Benjamin is on ebay (click here for his auction)... I hope you can visit him there!

~ Colleen ~ ooak art doll

I'm a little nervous about showing her as she is the first of my art dolls that I've shared with everyone. I've made a couple others over the years, but just for myself.

Coleen is made of paper mache - a very time consuming way to create a doll! She has soft glass Masterpiece eyes and tea dyed tibetan lamb hair. I needle felted her hat and mitts and added beautiful vintage rhinestone buttons. Her winter coat is accented with a lace ruffle underneath. Her boots have applied suede over the paper mache. Her paper mache snow stand is weighted for stability. She is a static art doll and one-of-a-kind.

I hope you like her!

Polar baby....

I'm busily working on a baby polar bear for ebay. I may manage to have him done by Sunday :o) I am loving how he is turning out... recycled mink fur, open/close mouth/eyes. Still a few details to go, so it all depends on how much I can get done when I'm not home schooling, etc. My three children were very helpful today in getting their school done quickly - I hope they keep it up for the rest of the week :o))
