I'm still here!!

With all the Holiday rush I just haven't been very good about keeping this blog updated.
I've kept true to my pledge of handmade and have made all my gifts this year. Between doing that and adding new items to my etsy shop all my time just flys by.....but I've loved doing it!
After the holidays are over I'll be working on this blog and fixing the things that need to be done and I also have some new ideas for things at etsy!!!! Keep stopping by.....

Some of my wierdness


Can you find inspiration in food?

While eating one of my favorite indulgences (and yes I know they're bad for me) ...rippled potato chips, the waves reminded me that I had some corrugated cardboard in my workshop. That led to an idea for a new ACEO.
Potato chips = Comfort = Joy

Give a Handmade Gift this Holiday

Do something different this holiday season and give your family and friends a handmade gift that you make or take a look at the many talented artists at Etsy.com.

A special thank you to all who came out to the craft show this past weekend. I'm working on the orders, and I'll be calling you in a few days.

I've added several new items to my shop and I should be ready to post more by next week, so don't forget to take a peek.

October

This time of year is my favorite because I love to take walks in the park to see all the beautiful colors on the trees. It's great to take some time away from my work and for some exercise and fresh air and also on my walks I usually get some great ideas. It's also the busiest time for me getting ready for the fall craft shows and this year with the start of my shop at Etsy. I'll be posting pictures of some of my new things on this blog, so bear with me as I really am trying to do it all.
If you are in the Yardley, PA area on November 3, you can visit me at the Charles Boehm Craft Show on Big Oak Road.

Inspiration


People have asked me where I get my inspiration......
In answer to that question.....thru my eyes. Every day in everything I see, whether it's the way the clouds in the sky are formed or that pile of stones on the ground, or the people that I pass....that is inspiration. I use my eyes.

Jumping in


Today is the day!

For quite sometime now I've been wanting to get this started, and finally I said "Today is the day". Just get out there and DO IT. I'm a self-taught artist and have been creating and selling at local craft shows. I'm ready to give the internet a try....soooo....
This is a pic of my most recent work....she is Meralda the Witch and you can see more at etsy.com under MariePattersonStudio.
If you are curious, go take a look and let me know what you think.
