Want to see Something...WONDERFUL?

Aren't these great? My daughter just finished a competition with these beautiful Alice in Wonderland pieces. She got First Place for the "Books are WONDERFUL" portrait of Alice for 2-dimensional, and First Place for 3-dimensional for "Bad HARE Day" which is the mixed media collage in the old window frame. (I love the funny quote in the picture)
The Wonderland necklace and the "A Wonderful Book" book sculpture were additional items in this series she made with an old copy of the story and vintage and hand sculpted items. She competed with these last two at the Jr. Beta Club convention this week in Mobile, AL. (She actually won a first place trophy there with another collage for Mixed Media, but that is another subject.) She used the old book pages for the background of the portrait and the book remnant for the sculpture. She sculpted all of the characters and items in the collage.
This contest was Winterfest Jr. which is a county wide art competition for students from K-12. She is in the seventh grade, and has placed first in this competition for three years in a row!
I just wanted to brag a little..Thanks for listening!

WOW! WOW! WOW!!! She's awesome! The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, huh, Mama? Are you just bursting with pride? That 3-D book one is AMAZING! She should open a shop on Etsy. She could do well! Congrats, young lady!

Thanks Tara! She is good, even I say that! She does have an Etsy shop, but it is empty. She never has time to list anything. I need to get her on that little chore!
Thanks for the sweet words!

Hey Kelli, It's me again. I've got something I need you to make. Mary Margaret will soon be losing her teeth and I wanted a cutesy tooth fairy pillow. Here is a link to an idea I found:

Shoot me an email when you get a chance:

We'd love to drop by the House and see y'all. What are your hours? We are having another little one--a boy--in July! We are naming him Jack. :)

Oh my gosh- LOVE! I am just now looking for ways to decorate for my 7 year-old's Alice in Wonderland themed party coming up in June and your daughter's work is adorable. Do you think she'd like to be featured on the Fiskateer blog? I'd love to have her- you can email me at:
