2 Snowy Owls

These snowy owls are really hard to photograph- the camera picks up a lot more contrast than there actually is, giving the white and cream some tones that I don’t see on the pieces.

The owl on the left is very white. The wings are very slightly cream. The owl on the right is more of a cream color. All the parts are shades of creamy white.

These outdoor nature shots give a better idea of the colors.

A few notes about the rest of December

There is approximately 2 weeks until Christmas as I am typing this. I am currently working on men dolls including mermen so keep your eyes out if that’s what you’ve been waiting for. My Etsy Shop will close on December 20, 2021 and reopen on Jan. 1, 2022. This only applies to items that have to be shipped. Digital patterns are always available. Be back soon!

I’m Doing Some Shows This Fall

I will be doing 2 in-person shows this Fall in Massachusetts. I will be at The Paradise City Arts Festival in Northampton MA October 9 – 11. And then I am showing at the Paradise show in Marlboro, MA, November 19 -21. All the info about the shows is HERE. I’d love to meet you if you can make it. These will be the first shows in almost 2 years and I am excited!

If you decide to come to the show, here is a link to get discounted tickets.

Here is a photo from the last show I did- November 2019!

Greenman 2

He is the last fellow for now. It is time to do a massive studio cleanup and move on the other things.

He has got all my vine-y fabrics!

He has an antique button- I think maybe bone or horn?

Just a little bit of fancy on his boots-

July Art Party

I am doing another Art Party Central event, this Thursday, July 22 at 3:30 and 7:30 Eastern Time. Would you like to come and join in the fun? RSVP here! Or go to the site and RSVP from there. Why should you come? Because you will get a 10% off coupon for MY SHOP and might even win a $50 gift certificate!!! I will talk about my work for a least 5 minutes (lol) and show details of the work. You can ask me questions. And you can see some other amazing artists- it is a virtual Zoom Craft Fair. I’d love to see you there!

I am participating in an Art Party Central event, this coming Saturday at 2:30 and 5:30 Eastern Time. Would you like to come and join in the fun? RSVP here! Or go to the site and RSVP from there.

I need a (e)mailing list

In this crazy year of all cancelled in-person shows, I have been exploring new options. There are some really great online shows going on! I hope they continue after the pandemic because wow- Awesome! Some of these shows require a mailing list which, since the days of me doing pottery, I have never maintained. I am hoping to get things figured out with Mailchimp and have links you can click to sign up, but I am a bit overwhelmed with that part of the process right now. Hopefully I will get there soon. So, I will do it the old-fashioned way. Would you like to be on my mailing list? Leave a comment with your email address or send me an email at mimik@pobox.com. In my dreams I would send out a newsy email once a month but I know that won’t happen. More likely it will just be announcements of when I am doing shows. If you already get my blog posts via email, unfortunately it is not the same thing. You still have to give me permission.

And now, here are some of the things I am doing. This coming weekend I will be part of Doll and Teddy Bear Artist Online Show.

Also, Paradise City , which is doing ongoing virtual events. Lots of good stuff there. I bought a beautiful birdbath last month from one of the local artists.

And for now, lastly, Art Party Central. I am scheduled to do one of their shows at the end of June.

It has been such a strange year but thank you so much to all who have supported me and stayed with me! I feel very lucky.

Last Lady is a Green Lady

She is #12 of the ladies and the last one for now. That is a lot of the same pattern for me- I get bored easily!

Embroidered leaves/ferns and an owl face button. Also, fancy shoe laces!

I wasn’t 100% happy with either of the next 2 photos but maybe they even out. One doesn’t show her hands and the other is too dark. Oh well!
