Comic Con

Spiderman shops at Clayworks....

To everyone at Las Cruces Comic Con,
THANK YOU! We had a great show and met so many amazing people and fellow artists.

Zia Comics did an amazing job for a first year show and we appreciate all of their hard work and their wonderful volunteers!

We look forward to next year!








My daughter Quinn won 1st place for cosplay in her category "Anime". She worked for months on her costume and I am happy to see it pay off for her. What a fun experience!

Fairy Garden to go....

 I needed a costume or something fun to wear for the LasCruces Comicon in September that I am vending at so I made a wearable fairy garden.

I love those little felt top hats I have been seeing all over Pinterest and Etsy so I ordered some hats and bought a new "super hot" (ouch) glue gun and got to work. I made tiny mushrooms and flowers to go with my little door and they all turned out so darn cute. It looks heavy but it is not and stays put with two hair clips glued on the bottom. I may start selling the little clay pieces as craft supplies after I get these shows finished and I have some time for experimenting. The finished hat is 4.5" wide and about 3.5" tall so it is a miniature wonderland.

It was a lot of fun to put together and now I can take my Fairy Garden with me.

May the 4th be with you... Geek day at my house.

video
This is why I love my family soooo much! Who else will joust with you to celebrate "Star Wars Day" which is May the 4th "be with you". We celebrate each year by doing something geeky that we love. We spent all day Saturday making shields and painting plastic helmets to look medieval. We also had an archery contest and a sword battle. ( Using all foam weapons of course). Then we feasted on roasted chickens and veggies. It was a GOOD day!

Art Nouveau Pansies

I have not made these for quite awhile but I am looking at all of the beautiful spring flowers and they inspired me.

I started making the brass paired with clay in 2007 after going through my bead stash and finding tons of brass stampings that I had bought for another project. I love the antique quality that the brass components add to the look.
