Pretty Polly in Print

I just received my copy of the Autumn 2015 edition of Prims and couldn’t be happier to see one of my little ladies, Polly, in the gallery section.

Polly is a cloth and clay doll, much larger than my usual cloth and clay dollies. Read the basics about how to make a similar cloth and clay doll in the Autumn edition of Prims, on newsstands Sept. 1st.




Polly has some wonderful creations to keep her company, including this delightful skeleton santa created by Susan O’Connor from Hope Mills, North Carolina! You can purchase this issue of Prims here or look for it in your local Micheal’s or book store.

Halloween Dumplings in Print…Winter 2015

I was so excited to learn months ago that my work would be featured in the Somerset Studio Gallery Winter 2015 edition. Although it’s been super hard to keep this secret, I managed not to spill the beans (publicly) way before the issue was even printed! Three of my large paper mache / paperclay Halloween dolls were chosen for publication & I have to tell you, these three are some of my favorites! So much so, that one of the dolls decided she needs to stay with me. It’s very rare that I keep a piece for myself. To date, I’ve only kept two for my own collections. This article will help you begin to create your own paper mache / paperclay sculpture. You’ll get to read a little about my favorite Halloween tradition–trick or treating and how the 300 + trick or treaters we get each year, inspire me to create. If you’re interested in purchasing this magazine it hit newstands on December first and can be purchased directly from Stampington or can be found in craft stores like Michael’s or fine book stores. One of the dolls published in this magazine is still available in my Etsy shop. More photos of her can be seen here.
