The winner is .... well ....

The time had come to draw for winners on my OWOH giveaway. I put all the numbers down on tiny bits of paper and scrunched them into balls. Then I tossed them out on the floor and Mac, the ultimate fetching cat, chose one of the papers to be the winner. He brought it over to me and it was:

# 116 Shelle from sunshineshelles.blogspot.com   from Australia.

However, I have checked with customs in Australia and they won't allow Tas to enter the country. He is made of plant materials and will be destroyed if I mail him. I was crushed.

Sorry Shelle, I had no idea I couldn't get him to you.

But never fear!  I will be making a new piece for Shelle. I have emailed her and will post a photo of the new custom doll  I will be sending her as soon as it is completed.

Thank you all for being a part of OWOH and visiting my blog. I hope you keep stopping in and please leave comments. I love them so...

Moonbeams & Blessings,
Jesi & Mac, who is eagerly awaiting the next giveaway so he can pick the winner again. :)

She has hair!!!

For all of you who have been oh so patiently waiting from my newest Wild Woman to be finished. I thank you.
She has finally picked out her clothes, her accessories and has a lovely new hairstyle. And she announced today that her name is "Mother Herb"  in honor of my dear friend & soul sister, Cerri Ellis. (http://www.cerriellis.viviti.com)   Stay out of the pyramids, girlfriend!  (long LONG story LOL)  

Without further ado, here is a quickie photo of "Mother Herb" 

She is wearing a long green under dress with a paisley over skirt. 
Her shawl is hand woven by me. 
She carries a basket of green things gathered in the forest. 
She walks with a staff, for her days are many upon the earth. 
Around her waist there is a turtle shell pouch. 
( made by Barbara Kopang of https://www.oddestgoddess.com/ ) 
Mother Herb's feet are bare so that she can stay grounded and close to the earth. 

My blog readers and Facebook friends are getting a sneak peak tonight. 
If you are interested in her, feel free to email me.

As always I'd love to have your feedback on "Mother Herb"

Until tomorrow,
Moonbeams & Blessings
Jesi & Mac, the snoring kitty

One World One Heart 2011

Welcome to Once Upon A Moon Studios. My name is Jesi Ferguson and I'm a mixed media artist specializing in Art Dolls. 

Ok, so much for the stuffy intro line. Thanks for stopping by to see us! The fuzzy guy is SiR T. H. McAnally, art critic extraordinaire. He pretty much runs the place. I'm just the hired help. 

My dolls are all flights of fantasy that escaped from my head and onto my work bench. If I sculpt them fast enough I can capture them. If not, they may wander around the studio for days or weeks before I get them tamed down and sculpted.  

At the moment there is a root dryad that is pacing around waiting on clothes and a wise woman with no hair who is not very happy with me at all. ( I really should be in the studio LOL but I wanted to make sure to tell you hello)  You can see more of the things that wander out of my imagination by clicking on the GALLERY link at the top of the blog.

OK, enough about me.  Let's talk about One World One Heart.

  • It is open to everyone world wide. Yes, this mean you! :)  
  •  All you have to do to enter the drawing for the door prize is leave a comment on this blog. Be sure to leave a way that I can contact you if you are chosen the winner.  (Your working email address would be great! ) 
  • That's all you have to do! Cool, right? 
  • The winner will be announced on Feb. 17
  • I will post the winner's name on my blog and I will also email the winner. (That's why I need your REAL email address  LOL)

Now, let's see what you have a chance to win!!

His name is Tas-elmish. He is a twig sprite who has taken up residence in my yard. He's a very happy guy considering he just lost his home. He used to live in a small run of trees near here, but the neighbors showed up with a bulldozer, and, well, he felt a move was in order. I have an inkling that a few of his friends will be moving in also.
Tas-Elmish is one of a kind (OOAK). He was designed and sculpted entirely from my imagination.
No molds were used during sculpting. None were made after the piece was finished.

Tas-Elmish is a mixed media piece. His body is a found twig and smaller ones make up his arms as well. His head is a goldenrod seed pod that was sculpted over to give him his quirky smile. His dark glistening eyes are black glass beads and he wears a lovely moss ensemble to protect his modesty.

Tas is approx. 15 inches tall from the tips of his arms to the bottom of his... twig. He is about 6.5 inches wide at the arms. There is a small wire loop on his back so that he may be hung up for display.

I'm so excited that this little guy will be finding a new home. 

Well, Mac is telling me it's time to go give a wise woman some hair. He's such a slave driver... LOL

Stop back by anytime!!! We love company!

Moonbeams & Blessings,
Jesi & Mac
