New witch in the works

This lil old lady is currently waiting for me in my studio. She is quite adamant that she needs to get her body and clothes before Thanksgiving. (I'm not sure she will get it all LOL but she can dram, right? )

She will have clay hands & feet/shoes and a soft body over a wire frame. When finished she will be around 18" tall and you will be able to gently pose her.

I'll keep the WIP photos coming as she comes to life.

And this Lil Lady will come with her own hand made book, that tells her personal story. It will be hand made and hand written by me. Cool idea, hmm?

Well, back to work!

Moonbeams & Blessings,
Jesi & McAnally - who is staying warm sleeping on the cable box.  LOL

Sketchbook Sunday - 11-13-2011

Well there are new things roaming around in my head these days.  Not sure what this says about me, lol  but things have been getting a bit darker in OnceUponAMoon land. The freaks are wandering out. 
Here's my latest sketch. (please remember, I never said I was a 2d artist! lol) 
I do think he might make an appearance in 3D sometime soon. What do ya think?

I'm so excited to show you...

my newest piece. She is a doll house miniature 1:12
I couldn't show her to you until now because her new owner wanted to keep her a surprise.
But now the cat is out of the bag and the witch is too! 

She will have a wonderful home with a very sweet lady that can't wait for her to arrive. 
She starts her travels today. YAY!!

This little lady was commissioned and has been so much fun to make. 
I LOVE swapping imaginations with people to make special pieces like this! 

Just wanted to let y'all know what I was up to today. 
I'll be posting my work in progress (WIP) today or tomorrow. 

Check back and see who is taking shape in 
OnceUponAMoon Studios!
And don't forget to "like" us on facebook! 
Me and the Freaks love us some friends!!

Lost and Found

I've been lost. That's right, lost. Somewhere in the last year through all the ups and downs, ins and outs, and doing the "grown up thing" I got lost. 
Not physically, mind you. I'm physically right here going through the daily grind. But creatively and spiritually ( which I feel are connected by a life line anyway) I have been wandering aimlessly. 
I'm not sure when I got lost. I don't think I slid off the cliff of creativity and soulfullness into a pit of confusion. I think perhaps I just strayed from the trail a few steps each day, allowing the path I intended to take to slip away from me inch by inch until I found myself wandering in a desert of the soul. Things dried up. 
Then things I did manage to create were set aside. I didn't connect with the wonder that was presented to me by the universe. I just took what I was given and failed to give back. So the cycle stalled. There was nothing to refill what I was putting out... and it was entirely my fault. This I own... the responsibility for my current situation. 
I know that all the creativity I have is given to me as a gift, and I am supposed to take that gift and give it away in the form of my art, be it sculpting, drawing, or writing. And when I stop fulfilling MY end of the bargain, then the whole process dissolves. The inspiration stops and I am left wandering aimlessly  with an unfulfilled soul. Things begin to become overgrown in the forest of my mind and briers and  brushes clog the path to clarity. 
It's time I got back on the path. It's time to find my way back to the winding road that brings me to you each day with something to share. 
It's time to pick up my soul, turn on the spiritual GPS and get back where I belong. 

Tomorrow is a new start to an old journey.  I hope you will join me. 

Moonbeams & Blessings,
