Making Drummer Frosties

We’ve already had snow and a mini polar vortex, which is weird but enhanced the Frosty-making mood. Mother Nature is sending us a message about the volatility of our climate these days, although my snarky self blames Disney for promoting Frozen 2 too much. 😉 Last year I only had one drummer frosty left during […]

I have two weeks to replenish popular Christmas songs and make some other ornaments I’ve had in my head for a while. I am also sending angels and frosties over to Artem Pop Up Gallery and to Sacred Art […]

Halloween Spooks

It’s Halloween, and the last day for my sale at Artem Pop Up Gallery. I had fun making Halloween Ghost ornaments for the store. I created a setup on Now That’s a Jig to create the basic ghost frame. Then I wrapped a length of wire around the setup to make the shape. I decided […]
