As I look around Etsy, I am noticing more and more fall products. I have slowly been adding more softies to my etsy site

Like this little black and white pumpkin. It is a small 2 1/2" softie that is hand embroidered and beaded. Then there is the crow...just looking for a scarecrow to bother. Hmmm, I guess I should make one next!

Here are a few more new softies.

New Halloween Kitty!

Hi everyone. Well, I made it through my first day back to school. I am so tired. And the kids aren't even back yet! I am setting up my art room, making up exciting lessons, and getting organized.

I thought you might enjoy seeing a Halloween cat I made. He is about 10 1/2" tall with a hand painted face.

Last day of summer vacation

I promised myself that I would start a blog this summer. It is my last day off. You see Monday I start back to school. I am a middle school art teacher (Yes, I wonder why myself sometimes).

I must admit, as great as summer has been, I am always a little excited to see those new faces sitting in my classroom. I hope this year will be a wonderful one. One of the things I am not looking forward to is going to bed earlier at night so that I can get up at 5 A.M. each day!

I am an artist for as long as I can remember. I had a little friend named Kathy who lived down the street from me in Williamsville, NY. We use to have competitions to see who could draw the best of anything...then run to our moms and ask who won...Poor moms!! Funny thing, she became an artist also.

I now have a 7 year old daughter who is sweet, energetic, artistic, and means the world to me! I also have a husband who is the most talented musician I have ever met. The man sings like an angel...but I know better!

Thanks for hearing me out. Now it's time to figure out how to add pictures of my work.

Talk to you soon. Think great things and visit back soon.
