One more day until the Giveaway!

Hee hee...isn't this fun?!! I've upgraded from a Santa hat to a big old present box to hold all the entries for the giveaway. :-) Everyone that has entered so far is in the box, but it's certainly not too late to enter. You can enter all day today by leaving a comment and/or placing my giveaway avatar on your site and your name will be in the Big Ol' Present Box too! Tomorrow morning I will draw the winner's name and post that information here so be sure to stop by and check it out!! I can hardly wait to see who wins. :-)

I've just finished up another great little snowman nodder that has been added to my website and is ready to fly on home to keep you company over the winter season!

I hope you have a wonderful, fun day today and I'll chat with you again tomorrow!

Two days until the Happy Holiday Giveaway!

I'm getting so exciting about the Giveaway! This has been so much fun hearing from everyone...the response has been wonderful! Only two more days to go until the drawing. If you haven't entered yet, it's not to late. Leave me a comment and you will get your name in the hat. If you post my blog giveaway on your blog, I'll add it TWICE! :-)

I've finished up another really sweet Candy/Trinket Box for the holidays that I wanted to share with you. I just love his little face and his Santa hat. What do you think?

Okay, I'm off to do a little sewing...Big hugs--Susan

Happy Thanksgiving!

For each new morning with its light,

For rest and shelter of the night,

For health and food, for love and friends,

For everything Thy goodness sends.

For flowers that bloom about our feet;

For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet;

For song of bird, and hum of bee;

For all things fair we hear or see,

Father in heaven, we thank Thee!

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Wishing you a Blessed and Happy Thanksgiving ~ Susan

I'm on a roll!

Okay..three posts in one week! What's going on here! It feels so good to be back in working order out here in blogland that I can't stay away! :-)

I'm so excited for all of you that have entered my Happy Holiday Giveaway! Mr. Snowman is really looking forward to his trip to his new home. He's been keeping me company in the studio this week and I gotta tell you...he's a bit of a flirt. With his sparkling eyes and cheerful snowman smile he makes me happy during the day and has put me right in the mood for cold weather and the Holiday season. If you haven't entered yet, all you have to do is leave a comment on my blog to have your name put in my Big Ol' Santa hat. If you want two chances...add my Giveaway banner to your blog!!!

Like I said, this handsome snowfella has put me in the mood for the Holidays and I've been busy in the studio working on these cool Snowfolk. I've added them to my website tonight and will be adding a few more over the next couple of days. I'm working on a cute Candy box all trimmed in the traditional red and green and I am LOVING the way he is finishing up!!!

Tuesday, November 18th

Whew...what a week this has been! I've been designing and creating some really neat Christmas goodies to offer for sale this week. It feels wonderful to finally have some inspiration and creativity flowing again. Working around the house painting and reorganizing really took it's toll on my ability to get into the studio to do any playing around, that's for sure.

I am having so much fun with the Holiday giveaway too! My Santa hat is filling up pretty fast now. I can hardly wait for teh 1st of December to get the drawing underway! :-) Be sure to leave a comment to be entered into the giveaway, ok?

I just listed my Angel of Joy on Ebay this evening. I've been experimenting with new faces and I am really loving this shape. I'm sure I'll still work with some round head dollies, but I like this more oval shape too. What do you think?

A Happy Holiday Giveaway!!!

Well...I've gone and done it now, haven't I? This late night project has cost me all my previous posts....darn it!!!

Okay...I'll just have to start over again ....Fresh starts can be good, right? I'm ready and I am starting out with a new banner that I created in Photoshop...what do you think?

Next on my list will be to get back in there and add all my friends blog addresses. Please let me know you're out there and I'll happily add your blog addy to my list, ok?

I think I will also start out with a Holiday giveaway! What do you think of that?

This handsome fella is one of my early cloth and clay creations...He was featured in Create and Decorate Magazine and has such a sweet endearing face and message. He reminds us all to take time to chase the flakes. It's so easy to get caught up in the holiday hustle and bustle. Remember to have fun...hug your hubby, play games, snuggle with the kiddos, smile at your neighbors! :-)

Okay for the rules ...their very simple. Leave a comment on my blog and your get one entry. Post my Giveaway Button on your blog or website with a link back to my giveaway (and be sure to let me know, ok?) and you'll get 2 entries!!

I will collect all the entries and drop them into my Big Ole' Santa Hat and draw the winning name on the morning of December 1, 2008. Some lucky winner will have this handsome fella flying home to them just in time for the Holidays. :-)

It's time to get busy in the studio so I'll sign off for now! I'm looking forward to hearing from you soon...Hugs--Susan

Please bare with me....

I was updating my blog with a new template and I lost all my links and entries...UGH!! I'm working on getting this all put back together so I hope you'll stay tuned! signed...a very tired Susan...
