Make It Monday: Owl Clay Pot, and Teach Love Not Hate Art

This week for Make it Monday, I made a lovely zentangle owl clay pot, that I just love. I am all out of the bigger clay pots now, again, but I have some little ones that I might make some cute Halloween ghosts or something. This will be for sale in my Etsy store, Missy69. I took a nice close up, so no pot was showing to see if I can upload to Redbubble items. We will see.

 The second items, is Teach Love Not Hate, and is hand drawn and painted. This is only my second time drawing hands, so it took me several attempts to get it right. I really love how this one came out too. This item will be available on various products on my Redbubble account, Missy69 

 I am finally almost done with the hooded cape. I have been really pushing myself to work on it. It is really quite lovely, and will be super warm too. Right now as I type this it is 101 degrees outside, so super warm is not something I need, lol.

Make it Monday: Halloween Fairy Garden Accessories

This week for Make it Monday, I finished some more Fall Halloween theme garden items, for fairy gardens or other tiny gardens. All of these are available in my Etsy shop. I did another set of Boo stepping stones, but they won't be listed until I finish the skull light posts that will go with them. I so enjoyed making the stepping stones, that I will be doing other themes. The moon and trees stepping stones are about 1 1/2 inches. The witch, and Frankestein states are about 3 inches high. Visit my Etsy shop to purchase these, or any of my other items.

Make It Monday: Halloween Fairy Garden Statue and Halloween Sugar Skull Clay Pot

Yesterday, was Monday, and that means Make it Monday.  Since Halloween is coming, I am trying to get some Fall/Halloween themed items done.  However, Thanksgiving and Christmas are also coming!  I would love to get some fairy garden houses done with a Christmas theme.  I have a homeschool evaluation tomorrow, and then church, so these might not show up in my Etsy shop until Thursday some time.

First up is this adorable pumpkin figurine.  I have never painted a figurine before, and I can already tell not all of the highlights are flattering, lol.  Also, I will sell with the blue eyes, and mouth, but if buyer wants them painted black I will.  I thought I would like the blue, but eh not so much.  It does have a string for hanging, but I would take that off and put it in a Fall Fairy Garden.

The second item is a 4 inch clay pot, with a Zentangle Sugar Skull face.  I left the yellow at the top for a name, or Happy Halloween, if buyer wants it.  Mums, Marigolds, or any other fall flowers would look awesome in this pot.

Visit my Etsy shop today.  I also sell on Ebay under the user name MRR05, and on Redbubble under the user name Missy69.  Redbubble has all my art, and photography over the years.  Well not all of it yet, takes a while.

Make it Monday: Halloween Fairy House and Clay Pot

Finally I got to do a normal Make it Monday, yesterday! I finished one fairy house, started another, plus started a clay pot head, and continue working on crochet wrap jacket.

 The completed fairy house, shown below, will be in my Etsy shop tonight. It is wooden, painted purple with silver ghosts. Above the door is two silver eyes, that my daughter says looks like baby ghosts. Perfect for Fall Halloween fairy gardens. I have another to finish that is orange with Wizard and Witch hats. When I bought the clay pots this time, I did not realize they didn't have holes in the bottom, so I can not put them together like my other clay people pots. So, they will be just clay pot heads with Fall/Halloween theme. One is started, shown below, and the other I have not begun yet.

 Visit my Etsy shop to purchase any of the items I have for sale.
