Winter and Christmas projects I’ve made lately….


Hello everyone! I hope this Christmas Season is becoming a wonderful one for you. I’ve been rather busy taking care of my husband but, whenever I’ve had a free minute or two I’ve been creating……

157   158   160


These are some of the ornaments that I’ve made using, egg gourds. The first one (blue) I used Krylon® Glitter Blast and then made the designs on it using a was technique which I learned from Miram Joy. The rest of the ornaments were dyed first and then had the wax technique used on them. All of the ornaments were then sealed.


This is my next project and I must say that I’m very proud of it……..

Don’t you just love this sweet face? I know I do…………………………

But this is the whole thing!


This snowman was made using a very large gourd, Creative Paperclay® and paint. Decorated with the hat, some fleece for the scarf and buttons. He stands approximately 20” tall to the top of his hat. I currently have him for sale at the Gallery for $60. I would also sell him online for the same price but you would also have to pay for the shipping. I hope you like them as much as I do. You can email me if you have an interest in him at:
