Well This Owl Ornament certainly is! I was so honored to win the order for this One-Of-A-Kind Owl Ornament in Etsy's Alchemy! This client wanted a special Owl ornament for her two year old daughter. Well, I started with hand-dyed crushed velvet, hot pink, and made the stuffed body. Then I made the wings out of silk in an earthy iridescent brown. The wings have both machine and hand embroidery. The beak and feet are sculpted out of clay and painted. The eyes are glass with wonky stitched eyelids. The ear tufts are wool roving, hand stitched! The little feathers on the chest are pink sequins sewn on with french knots over scraps of printed linen. The hanger is a silk ribbon tied in a bow that also holds the tag with the child's name. There are sweet little furry tufts on top of the wings and beak. The eyes have stitched wool circles around them. The branch is a rolled piece of wool for her delicate toes to grasp. I am so proud of her, it was very HARD to let her go. And, by the way, she happens to be my very first "out of the country" order! She has gone to Canada! Thanks so much Sara! I hope Josephine loves her owl! I really Loved making her!
And for the rest of you...Please visit my Etsy shop for a custom order of your very own!

When my DD was in third or fourth grade, (can't remember), her gifted teacher had her make an Orphan Annie costume for her toddler daughter. You have to see this child's RED hair! Anyway, she has worn it every year since, and thus outgrown the dress! We were honored when she asked us again this year to make the same design again! My daughter works with me in my Diva Do classes, she teaches the K-1st grade class, and we work on projects like this once in a while! She actually gets quite a few requests like this from teachers at her school!
Sooo, I thought that was a very nice testimonial for our work! The big dress is the new one! The little dress is the first one! Sweet huh? Get lots of candy Mary Margaret!
Another little tidbit...both my daughter and this lovely child are performing in "The Wizard of Oz" at our local community theatre the week before Thanksgiving!

One of my "Diva Do" moms had me make these cute paintings for her two daughters bathroom. I coordinated them to some fabric she used in the room. Both of these girls are in my Diva Do classes. Thanks, Sweeties!
These are two "twin" paintings I did for our Elementary School. They were commissioned by the Principal for her office. They are large works, about five feet tall each! No school funds used though, she bought them herself!
