Raggedy Ann Assemblage

Raggedy Ann, mixed media assemblage

My mama heart strings were tugged a bit when Lizzie announced she was too old to dress up and go trick-or-treating this year. She's much more excited about the prospect of handing out candy to the neighborhood kiddos and seeing their costumes. I've been consoling myself by dressing up art dolls in the studio. Remember my little Raggedy Ann

2014 Holiday Art Blocks


Oh what a jolly mix of toys and Santa Clauses I've concocted this year! Listening to Christmas tunes in October does the trick ;) I will be stocking the shop with these holiday art blocks (and a few others!) throughout the day.

Miss Prism


Meet Miss Prism....she tends to cast a kaleidoscope of color everywhere she turns. Kinda like the prism that resides on the windowsill of my studio.

Jingle Bells


There has been a distinct rustling of jingle bells here at Sushipot as I work on all sorts of holiday goodies for the shop.


Lotsa vintage ornaments hanging around the studio these days including some kitschy, hand-painted wooden ones from the decade I was born.


Yes, the holiday blocks are coming along nicely and will be ready to go in the shop early next week. No....I didn't snip these snippets with giant shears....they are just a prop and the largest pair of scissors I own ;)


In other news we found a pair of acorn twinsies on a recent Autumn walk. There are always treasures to be found....you just gotta look.

Open Sesame


This old jar opener has been hanging around my studio for years. I think I bought it back in Mobile, Alabama 'cuz I loved its chippy green handle and rusty toothiness. Still love 'em but she's more than ready to weave her web in the great wide world....shouldn't be too hard for a gal named Sesame.

Oh October!


Seems like every time October rolls around I have an 'oh s**t' moment over my things-to-do-before-the-holiday-season-begins list (as an Etsy seller that is). All summer long I have the best of intentions to be prepared but when you run a one woman show it's much easier said than done. Anyhow, it's no different this year and today is that day. haha! So I'm telling myself to kick it into high gear and tackle that list (we'll see how it goes!). First up is to finish this bevy of wall dolls who have been patiently waiting for additional limbs. They gotta have something to kick around with you know ;) Oh....and before I forget....a happy October to you!
