Just like a Bunny in a Canoe

After my first adventure in that giant Ebay ocean, I'm feeling like I've advanced from doing the doggy paddle to now getting into a canoe and ready to hit the waters once again!

Of course I made some mistakes with my first listings and hopefully I'm on the right course now and I've just listed 2 brand new spun cotton ornaments AND got my ebay ID updated to my business name. You'll find me listed as "MariePattersonStudio"!!! (my old ID was "pattersmarie", so if you had me in your "saved sellers" (hope so) then you'll have to re-save my new ID)

As my blog readers, here's your first look at these new pieces. Click on the names to take you to the auction!

"Carrot Canoe" - was inspired by experience in swimming that Ebay ocean for the first time and feeling like I was "up the creek without a paddle" ;-}


I just love Tuxedo Bunnies and I can't seem to get enough of them! This Easter Basket is very vintage looking and sweet as can be!

"Some Bunny to Love" - I'm going to tease you and make you come to the auction to read more about these two cuties ;-}

Hope you'll get a chance to come by and view, stalk,watch, and possibly bid on my auctions!

The "Marie" tree


One of my "uber sweet" customers who has been collecting ornaments from me has honored and surprised me by decorating one of her Easter trees this year exclusively with my creations and she calls it the "Marie Patterson" tree!

She took these pictures and gave her permission for me to share them on my blog with you.





In this picture below my tree is in great company with a smiling rabbit named Wendell by Laurie Hardin! What an awesome Easter vignette!


Her collection includes my work in spun cotton, needle felting and sculpted paper clay.
The "Wee Wabbit Wacers" in their wittle wace car were a favorite of mine ;-}


Thank you, thank you! This is the best feedback and customer appreciation I could ever receive!

I'll either sink or swim



It's another first for me as I've entered the vast sea of unchartered waters know to me as Ebay! I know I'll be fumbling for a bit as I figure this whole thing out but I just knew I had to give it a go and see how it works out for me.

Today I successfully listed my first 2 spun cotton ornaments!!! When you get a chance, please stop by and check it out!




OH!! I have to mention...I'm offering FREE SHIPPING on these pieces!!! You don't see that very much in the Ebay ocean!

Works in Progress- More Bunnies!!!


New spun cotton ornaments and a large spun cotton art doll!!!



My Mr. Grey Hare is a spun cotton art doll and was inspired by memories of a family easter basket which was brought out each year to be used for our annual egg hunt. It was decorated with frills and ruffles sewn in that beautiful peachy/pink tulle and ribbon and I've used that color palette in this piece. As you can see from this picture, I'm still sewing the ruffled collar and there will be painted eggs in around the bunny and he will hold that cute little bunny pick in his paw.
