Yes, it's a peek, but just a small one at some of the creative projects and art that adorn the walls and shelves at my new studio.  I have had the studio space for almost six months now. Between renovating the space and keeping up with all of my deadlines it's been a challenge! I do want to have it just perfect before I post the TOTAL STUDIO photos, but I am happy to say that I am almost there.

This sign will greet when you come upon my entry doors. I formed it from clay, glazed and fired it in my kiln.
Working with clay has always been one of my favorite mediums. It always helps when I am working on product development to be able to create samples in a three dimensional clay form.

Did I mention that I absolutely LOVE birds and bunnies? The bird on a twig I designed using dimensional paints and a decoupage layered background. The vintage bunny and tiara are flea market finds.

Another bird on a twig....just a little larger.

And what else but a bird stand to hold my hand made jewelry.

Jewelry close up.

Bits and Pieces Mosaics.  These two pieces were also originally flea market rescues that I embellished with mosaic stones, beads, charms, pins and buttons.

This is posted above my media board. I think that this says it best. Besides, who else would you want to be?
