I made a Hootie....but no blow fish.














Last year I picked up clay and started I guess what you could call sculpting. I have made lots of little creatures and different things and surprisingly people want to buy them. It really took off at Christmastime when friends came over and seen ornaments that I was making for my personal tree...suddenly everyone wanted one. I sold so many ornaments I did not get to keep any for me....Well maybe I hid a Santa and a reindeer..lol. So I am currently in the process of opening an etsy store.. To sale my little creatures, ornaments, art and anything else I make. I don't mind if someone recreates Hootie for their own personal enjoyment but I do ask that you not sale him...since he is my original creation. I hope you all think he is as cute as I do. I will be linking to several parties to share my new little friend. Contact me if you want a friend of your own! Check out the links below for some inspiring ideas from other creative people.

You are very talented. Working with clay must be relaxing, too.

Cas said...

Thanks everyone. He is the first owl I made! It really is a relaxing craft that I am slowly but surely teaching myself. With every creature I feel like I get a little better.
